I just read your article after recently completing a course of vitamin e, and having no idea that any such thing as vitamin e toxicity existed. (My literature was old, I guess.) I took 3000 IU of mostly dl-alpha-tocopherol daily for 17 days.
I credit the megadoses with contributing to healing my peptic ulcer. I have always noticed that megadoses of vitamin E tend to produce a nice feeling of well-being, at least for a while.
I am going to cut down my vitamin E intake, but I would say that I experienced NO negative effects whatsoever – the extra 3g fat was not even a consideration.
I will add that I ALSO was taking extra vitamin k, not so much to counter-effect the vitamin E, but as recommended for bleeding ulcers.
Thank you for the comments. It’s good that you are taking control of your health and understanding how your body works. Notice how the reader also was taking Vitamin K while having a high dosage of Vitamin E.
And keep in mind you are mostly taking the synthetic version (dl-alpha-tocopherol) and depending on your metabolism, how active you are, etc will also affect how much your body absorbs.
Another thing to consider is the UL for Vitamin E is a rough conservative estimate.
Let me know if you have any further questions!
