Hey, I've read that coconut reduces our need for vitamin E. Is there any evidence showing that it also reduces our need for vitamin A? Thank you.

I track my food intake through CRON-O-METER and just ran a report. The strict paleo regime I've been following looks pretty amazing when vitamins and lipids are analyzed. The only glaring gap in the whole shebang seems to be Vitamin E, which... (more)

I'm currently plugging my daily meals into Fitday to see if I can drop my multvitamin. I keep carbs about 60g a day and I've discovered I'm low on vitamin E, B1 and copper. (and D and fiber, but I supplement the former and could care less about... (more)

I saw that fishoil is more helpful if taken with vitamin E to prevent peroxidation. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1995786) However, I generally take my fishoil in oil form (add it to kefir), but taking my vitamin E in capsule along side (2... (more)

Possible Duplicate: Best way to get vit E? Vitamin E: do we get enough with Paleo and if not, is supplementing safe? 1) Good food sources of Vitamin E seem anti-Paleo (wheat germ oil, legumes, PUFA oils). I often read that while some... (more)
Almonds contain a very high amount of Vitamin E, which we all know protects against oxidation. Many sources rank almonds in the top 5 or even top 3 for VitE content of all known foods. Can anyone provide a sound argument that defeats the idea that... (more)
