  • Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient, which functions as an antioxidant and has numerous health benefits.


    Vitamin E fights against damaging natural substances known as free radicals. It is incorporated in to the fat-based tissues of the body, such as the heart, fat-carrier molecules like LDL (“bad” cholesterol), and our cell membranes, where it acts to stabilize these structures and protect them from free radical attack.

    Vitamin E should be used with caution when combined with:


    • Blood thinning medication - (i.e. Warfarin and Coumadin), or other agents that affect the ability of blood to clot (Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs, Aspirin, etc.). Vitamin E in combination with these medications may increase risk of bleeding.
    • Lipid-lowering drugs - Vitamin E in combination with other antioxidant vitamins (beta-carotene, C and selenium) may reduce the therapeutic benefits of combinations of statins and niacin. Monitor lipid levels closely for potential changes in drug efficacy if using these antioxidants while taking statins plus niacin.
    • Chemotherapy Agents - High doses of antioxidants should be avoided during chemotherapy treatment until additional evidence is available.

  • What is the difference between 100% Natural and Water Solublized Vitamin E?

    Natural vitamin E (d-alpha) is derived from soybeans. Natural vitamin E is the preferred form of vitamin E for absorption by the body. Water solublized vitamin E is a synthetic form (dl-alpha) of the vitamin. Although it is not as absorbable as the natural form, those who have intolerance to soy products may use this form without allergic reaction. The water solublized form may also be beneficial for individuals with malabsorption problems unable to digest fats properly.

    What is the difference between the two following forms of Vitamin E: d-alpha and dl-alpha tocopherol?

    The d-alpha form is natural vitamin E, which is derived from soybeans. The dl-alpha form is a manmade, synthetic vitamin E. Clinical studies done on vitamin E have shown the natural form to be better absorbed compared to the synthetic form.

    When speaking of Vitamin E, how many IU equal a milligram?

    Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, which is typically measured in International Units (IU). If you are taking the Nature Made 100% Natural Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol), 1 milligram (mg) is equivalent to about 1.49 IU. If you are taking the Nature Made synthetic Vitamin E (dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate) 1 milligram (mg) is equivalent to about 1 IU.

    helps alot of things have taken it for along time i also useit on my nails. October 12, 2012
    This is the only Vitamin E you should buy! This is NATURAL vitamin E! Most vitamin E on the market (including all vitamin E in multivitamins) is synthetic because consumers demand the lower price of synthetic, but synthetic is not even half as effective as natural. Nature Made makes the only NATURAL vitamin E supplement that you can find in most stores! This tells me that they take vitamins seriously, which I appreciate. I would rather spend a little more for a vitamin that actually works. (Natural vitamin E is labeled "d-tocopherol" and synthetic is labeled "dL-tocopherol." I have a trick for remembering this: if it has an "L" in it, "Lose" it.) January 20, 2012
