Vitamin E


Forms: Alpha tocopherols, tocotrienols


Sources: Wheat germ, sunflower seeds, walnuts


RDA: 22.5 IU (15 mg)


Description: Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant, especially when used with vitamin C and selenium. In addition, it helps in nervous system development, protection from cataracts, and in maintaining the integrity of cell membranes. However, these functions only occur with dosages that are well above the RDA. This suggests that the RDA for this vitamin is to prevent deficiency and not to maintain optimum health. Although there are many forms of vitamin E which are available for supplementation, the most bio-available type is d-alpha tocopherol. The Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine established the tolerable upper level of intake for vitamin E at 1500 IU (1000 mg).
