    Vitamin Eeeeek? | Mark's Daily Apple

    I consume lots of dark, leafy greens like kale and spinach. Paired with a good dose of meat, I think I'm good.

        I never worry about E. If you're eating a good balance of veggies, meats, and healthy fats, you're covered.

            If you're that worried about it, eat 100 g. of nuts per day.

            Still say that if you're eating a good variety of veggies, meats, and healthy fats you're set, regardless if what food trackers might say.

              The funny thing about Vitamin E is it's often paired with polyunsaturated fat. Nuts are some of nature's greatest sources of Vitamin E...but you get a big dose of omega 6 along with it. Many argue that the only reason why Vitamin E is present is to prevent oxidation with an otherwise unstable fat, so if you are eating stable fats there is little need for Vitamin E.

              I wouldn't worry about Vitamin E because if you are taking in a lot of Vitamin E, you're probably taking in a lot of low quality fats. IMO, a whole foods diet low in Vitamin E likely follows a diet low in omega 6, and it's polyunsaturated fat that depletes Vitamin E from the body. The big issue comes when you eat vegetable oils high in polyunsaturated fat because it sucks the Vitamin E out of your tissue and puts none back. Almonds, on the other hand, supply Vitamin E so it's kind of trade off so you won't see that oxidation you get from, say, corn oil!

              I wouldn't count Vitamin E from dark green vegetables since it's mostly packed in insoluble fiber you won't digest. If I were you, I'd find a Vitamin E softgel packed in a stable fat (stearate, MCT), keep it in the freezer and take it only if you've had a less than desirable meal - you went out to a restaurant where questionable oils are used, you've eaten a lot of nuts in a sitting, you "cheated" and want to minimize damage, etc.
              Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
