Vitamin E Questions
One would have to eat a whole container of 10 oz spinach, have to eat nuts and vegetable oils, and eat massive amount of other types of foods to get the daily mg of Vitamin E? Is it just me that's having a tough time with this?

I've been looking into using red palm oil as a vitamin E "supplement," as vitamin E is the only nutrient I'm not hitting high levels on (according to Cron). Apparently virgin palm oil is super-high in tocepherols but I can't seem to find any... (more)

No, I haven't tried it for cramps, but get this: Travis' post led me to read a bit more on zinc and I found some information saying that many migraine sufferers have low levels of magnesium (which I knew) and high levels of copper (which I didn't... (more)
Does anyone know how Vitamin E is extracted from soybean oil when they make supplements? I am wondering if this process can leave intact any of the isoflavones from soybean oil in the vitamin supplement derived from it? EDIT: Look at the comment... (more)

In the most fishoils here it is Vitamin E as a Antioxidant. One is very good, i tried. Now i saw it has vitamin E. I get skeptic. Do you know on bad side effect of Vitamin E. Im sure some are sensitive on this. I heard worse things on synthetic... (more)
Overall, I think we all feel that eating paleo is healthy and highly nutritious. But since paleo is not an exact diet and each of us will choose different foods according to preferences and availablity, I think it is only fair to admit that it is... (more)

It says on my fish oil that it has 33% of RDA per teaspoonful of vitamin E. I am wondering if the vitamin E added to fish oil (I'm guessing they refined it from soybean oil and added it to prevent oxidation) is actually used by the body for... (more)
It seems there is some vitamin E naturally occurring in certain types of fish oil. Especially ones that come from sardines and such. Vitamin A is much more dominant. Personally, I think it would be safer to eat the fish. Or olives.

How solid is the evidence behind omega 3-6 balance and it's importance? It seems to me unrealistically difficult to get a good balance from whole foods, even when consciously attempting to limit 06. I don't even hit 1/5 ratio without... (more)
The general consensus is that food sources of nutrients are superior to nutrient isolates. Cooking with a couple tbsp of virgin red palm oil weekly in addition to a normal diet is probably good enough.

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)
My guess would be that RDA for vitamin E assumes that the diet is high in polyunsaturated fats and thus the level is higher than it needs to be. A diet low in polyunsaturated fats wouldn't require the same level of vitamin E.
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)
