Vitamin Analysis: “E” Must Stand for “Elusive”
Although we definitely don't need as much if we keep PUFA low, I read that it is estimated that HG intake of E is around 33mg. I barely scrape 10mg most days, doesn't seem optimal.
Where on earth were hunter gatherers getting their E from when they had a n6 intake of ~1%, I can't find a single food high in E that isn't high in PUFA. (Red palm nuts are the exception but they didn't grow everywhere!)
As an experiment I've added in a supplement of natural alpha-tocopherol. I've since figure that a mix of toco-pherol and toco-trienols would probably be more natural.
It's been a matter of days but WOW, the difference in my skin is amazing, I've got a real 'glow' going on even if I do say myself. Feeling happier, even if placebo effect I don't care! I know when I went VLC I became deficient in C, even though less carbs are supposed to require less C. Could vitamin E deficiency be another nutrient (like iodine) that cutting out PUFA dense foods causes you to become possibly deficient in?
