Recommended Dosages

UNIQUE E® MIXED TOCOPHEROLS

Dosage Recommendations As Suggested By Our Healthcare Professionals:

Starting Dose              1 softgel per 40 pounds of body weight
Maintenance Dose                  1-3 softgels daily

General Dosage Rules:

  • Maximum dose 6 softgels (2400 I.U.) per day—more than this is usually wasted.
  • Entire dosage to be taken ALL AT ONCE.
  • Best effect when dosage is taken WITH a meal.

What about vitamin E and drug interactions?

People using medications such as blood-thinners, cholesterol medications, blood pressure medications, etc, should always start with 1 softgel and work up to optimum dosage over time as needed, under the competent guidance of a physician. Vitamin E can temporarily increase blood pressure—monitoring dosage is required. However, it has been reported that, over time, vitamin E can actually help maintain a healthy blood pressure.*

Vitamin E is fat soluble, what about liver toxicity, what level is safe?

Unlike other fat soluble vitamins, vitamin E is NOT accumulated in the liver. This astonishing fact was recently proven in a paper entitled, Vitamin E Trafficking.** The authors report, “the liver does not accumulate ‘toxic’ amounts of vitamin E. Excess vitamin E is not accumulated in the liver, but is excreted, mostly in bile, via a p-glycoprotein (ABCB4)-mediated process.”
