Vitamin E has gotten an unfair rap for years — here’s why

Will researchers apologize for trashing this vitamin’s reputation?

Last month, researchers finally let vitamin E out of the dog house. And it was LONG overdue.

The study concluded, once and for all, that vitamin E does NOT cause prostate cancer. And that’s 100 percent true as long as you remember this important tip.

Skip the synthetic and reach for the real.

If you use the right form of E, it will do you a world of good and no harm at all. You won’t risk ANY type of cancer one iota. And if you’re a long time e-Tips reader you already know the form I’m talking about: E as mixed tocopherols. It comes in a package of four forms; alpha, beta, gamma, and delta.

Now, there’s one more form of tocopherol, but I don’t include it with the four above because it’s nothing but synthetic junk — not fit for man nor beast. For years Dr. Wright and other doctors of natural medicine have been warning people not to use this fake form of the vitamin.

In fact one doctor told me he wouldn’t even use it topically. It’s THAT bad!

And it’s this synthetic form of the vitamin that’s no doubt caused all the confusion and negative reports about vitamin E for the past few years. Researchers using this junk for large, long, expensive trials have wasted their time — and ours.

What a colossal blunder! Imagine that a team of first rate scientists from the finest colleges launched a manned rocket to Mars, landed it on Venus, and then told everyone the big news: “We put men on Mars!”

That’s how embarrassing this vitamin E screw up is. In the universe of micronutrients, these vitamin E researchers don’t even know what planet they’re on!

But while they were blundering, they might have actually stumbled onto something useful.

In 2011, one of these studies concluded with this… “Dietary supplementation with vitamin E significantly increased the risk of prostate cancer among healthy men.”

Yep — that one made headlines for sure. (Of course e-Tips saw right through the glaring flaw of that study. Check this link for the lowdown.)

But one month ago, a new follow-up from another large study reported that vitamin E had no effect in preventing or causing prostate cancer.

Now, both studies were long (several years), both were very large (thousands of men), both used synthetic E, and the dosage was the same: 400 IU. But there was one key difference. In the study that showed prostate cancer risk, E was taken daily. In the study with no risk, E was taken every other day.

Inadvertently, these studies might have given us the first solid clinical insight that the synthetic form of E is more dangerous than we thought. If you take, on average, 200 IU per day, apparently there’s no prostate cancer risk. If you double that and take 400 IU per day, then it looks like you’ll have “significantly increased risk.”

Now THAT is a very important finding because too many of the vitamin E supplements on grocery store and pharmacy shelves are the junk synthetic form. If you pick up a supplement bottle that contains synthetic E (listed as either “all-rac-alpha-tocopheryl acetate” or “d,l-alpha-tocopherol), drop it and run!
