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)

That's a bit low. Aim for a blood level of 125-150 nmol/L. (50-60 ng/ml) CLO is not an ideal source of D, since the ratio of A to D can be 10 to 1 or more. Take a separate oil-based D supplement, if you can't get enough sun.

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.

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

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..

A thing to keep in mind: Biology is not efficient. Why would we effectively need to absorb them? They likely ate manyfold as much pro-vitamin A as we do now. Even poor converters would have enough given that level of consumption.
