One would have to eat a whole container of 10 oz spinach, have to eat nuts and vegetable oils, and eat massive amount of other types of foods to get the daily mg of Vitamin E? Is it just me that's having a tough time with this?

One of the best sources of full spectrum vitamin E (tocopherols and tocotrienols) is red palm oil.  This is also a fat with a good profile.  However, it has a very strong flavor, but it's perfect for making into a chille or a... (more)

143% daily value for b6 in 8oz of salmon. 142% daily value for b6 in 6oz of liver. Decent amounts in meat, throw in a few lbs of plants and you should be good.

A cup of coffee made with 15g of coffee beans provides around 20mg of magnesium. 1 Therefore 5 cups of coffee made with 15g of beans will provide somewhere around 25% of the DV for magnesium If you search "coffee magnesium" on google you'll... (more)

how long does it take for you to reverse being deficient in a vitamin when supplementing?

JenJen 0 · October 09, 2013 at 4:32 AM

One thing to note - if you have become deficient despite eating foods that should have provided the vitamin or mineral, you may have some digestive problems. Heal the gut first otherwise no amount of supplementation will help!

Put what you eat daily into Cron-O-Meter and see if you're getting enough copper. If not, then I suggest you eat liver instead-you'll get plenty of copper from it

You're not going to overdose on vitamin A from plant sources. The more you consume, the lower the rate of conversion in the body. Also goes that the conversion from beta carotene to vitamin A is also lower when you already have a high dose of... (more)

Many vitamins are not a single molecule, but a number of related molecules that have similar function. B12 is a good example, you can have methyl-B12, cyano-B12, hydroxy-B12, or adenosyl-B12. They all get converted to active B12 in the body,... (more)

B vitamins are water soluble, so if you get too much, you'll pee them out. I also get neon pee when I eat liver/kidney, which are very high in B vitamins..

FCLO has only ~ 1000 IUs per serving. You are much better off eating liver, eggs and cheese for A and K2 and taking an oil-based D3 supplement/sunning. If you are that low , then 10,000 IUs for 3 months should get your levels up. No, fish oil... (more)

Vitamin D's fat soluble, so as long as you have bodyfat, it'll be stored indefinitely. In terms of levels, I've not seen any studies on it, too many individual variables (starting point, inputs of sun/food, ending point), etc. However, in... (more)
