I am a big fan of Andrew Lessman and take many of his vitamins, such as calcium, vitamin C, omega-3 and Co-Q10
Having said that, when I take his vitamin E, I become very sick. I have never had this hapen with any of andrews
vitamins and wonder if anyone else has had this happen to them. Or, is there a secret to taking them that I am not aware of.
Massha YES thank you for this info. I fear A and now will watch vit E intake-
Thanks for the heads up concerning Vitamin E!
WebMD carries this warning about Vit E "is POSSIBLY UNSAFE if taken by mouth in high doses. If you have a condition such as heart disease or diabetes, do not take doses of 400 IU/day or more. Some research suggests that high doses might increase the chance of death and possibly cause other serious side effects."
You can find a lot more about it with headlines like "popular but dangerous" from rather reputable sources. Many conclude that you really should not be taking it (or to be honest, most vitamins unless you show deficiency in them). Berkeley researchers do not recommend people take them. "Some experts think there have been too many vitamin E studies and say it’s time to quit expecting health benefits." <— there were no studies that showed it is of any benefit!!!!!!
In men, it can increase prostate cancer risk.
