The quality of this Vitamin E is phenomenal!
chinagirl
Well, one thing is certain, it seems that I should either take E or stop reading about it.
Gary Peterson
I like the Costco Kirkland brand as it is very trusted name in the business now.

Size Name: 500 Softgels
I like Costco products,not against any of their products, i just want to clear the difference between
Natural Vitmain E (d-Alpha) and Synthetic Vitamin E (dl-Alpha)

This particular product is made of Synthetic E. Usually we need to take more amount of synthetic form to have the same results of Natural E.

Based on the research found on this site
[...]

"This may appear to be arcane nutritional chemistry, but it is key to understanding how the body absorbs natural and synthetic supplements differently. Molecular structure determines how the body uses vitamin E. Researchers have found that natural vitamin E assimilates far better than synthetic versions. Specific binding and transport proteins produced in the liver select the natural d-alpha form of vitamin E and largely ignore all other forms.

In one experiment, Japanese researchers alternately gave natural and synthetic vitamin E to seven healthy young women. It took 300 mg synthetic vitamin E to equal the blood levels achieved by a 100-mg dose of natural vitamin E. [1]"

So before buying anything please understand the difference and then buy.

Thanks

Synthetic E will actually harm you. Natural E is made up of 8 parts, whereas synthetic has only 1 of the 8. So far you are thinking, "So what? At least I have some kind of vitamin E, and this is cheaper."

The other half of the problem comes from the fact that your cells only have so many receptors to receive vitamin E. But if all of your receptors are jam packed full of only 1 kind of vitamin E, then you don't get the other 7 parts in your cells. It actually blocks out the other 7 important parts of vitamin E. All 8 parts are needed for vitamin E to work.

Why do they sell a harmful product you ask? Because it is cheaper to make. Also, the drug companies love it when vitamins look bad. Its good for selling drugs when people are afraid to take supplements.

Notice that the distributor has a legal disclaimer above as well to protect themselves from lawsuit. Most vitamins don't have that. They know exactly what is in it and its effects.

UPDATED 12/6/2012: Seller's legal disclaimer has been removed. Seller's name has been changed to "Internet Seller". HAhahaha. Another vapid line and a half review gives the product 5 stars. Look at her profile, she just started reviewing products yesterday and they are all extremely short and vapid.

I didn't expect that kind of reaction to my review. :P

News story that actually gets it right.[...]

There is a lot of misinformation out there to confuse you. It's all about the money.

I'm disappointed in Costco that they still make their Vit E supplements with synthetic instead of natural d-alpha tocopheryl. Personally, I would only use natural vitamin E.
My wife purchased this Vitamin E without reading all the fine print.
We dumped it when I read the label and found out it was synthetic E, ie. dl-alpha not d-alpha.
We love COSTCO but not this product.

Size Name: 500 Softgels Verified Purchase
I wish I would have read some of the reviews and did a little research before purchasing this product! The vitamin E in these soft-gels is the synthetic form of vitamin E, dl-alpha tocopherol. Notice the "l"? Natural vitamin E, the one I want, is d-alpha tocopherol with mixed tocopherols. The "l" is a tip-off that this vitamin E is not natural, but synthetic.

From my own findings, dl-alpha tocopherol is linked to increased risk for prostate cancer in men (For those who will want documentation, just Google dl-alpha tocopherol and prostate cancer). As a middle aged man, I don't want to increase my risk by any factor. There are also many other potential bad side-effects of taking synthetic vitamin E. At best the bio-availability of the synthetic form is half that of the natural forms found in other products and is not nearly as absorptive as natural vitamin E. In other words, I wasted my money on this product at best, and at worst could have harmed my body.

I tossed the whole bottle of this product. My mistake for buying it.

I have now ordered an all natural product containing d-alpha tocopherol and not dl-alpha tocopherol as this product contains.

No wonder this bottle of vitamin E is so inexpensive.

This is an excellent price for vitamin E, and the gelcaps are easy to swallow. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better bargain. I also use them to treat puncture sites for my mobile blood-drawing business. I keep them in the bottle they came in, as placing them in my vitamin containers changes the texture of the gelcaps. Not sure if this has a detrimental effect or not, but I just decided to go with the recommendation to keep them in the bottle.

The dl-alpha form has a lower tolerable upper intake level of 1000, while the natural form has a tolerable upper intake level of 1500. So, if you're gauging how much Vitamin E you should take, using the upper level for natural E for the dl-alpha form will put you at 1.5 times the amount you should be taking, which would be considered "toxic". Could you please look at the label for this product, "K"? I see 400 IU, which is less than 2 1/2 times the upper intake limit (I'm sorry, "toxic") limit for vitamin E, even when using synthetic E as our reference. And the serving size for this product is 1 softgel. So, you'd have to take 3 gel caps to even get into the beginning range of what could be considered unsafe for these supplements. In other words, I think reviewers should do their homework before they go sounding the alarm for a specific product, especially since there are people behind these products, if you know what I mean.

Anyone questioning this dl vs. d analysis of the two forms can view the Vitamin E Meta-analysis in Annals of internal medicine, and then head on over to the Council on Responsible Nutrition for a critical view countering this report. In either report, however, you'll find out just how safe you are taking these supplements. Get you supplement on!
