According to that page, 1 tbsp of wheat germ oil has 1005 of the daily value of vitamin e, and it's a natural source. Anyone ever tried it? I have seen some packaged as a supplement for dogs, but I'd probably buy something organic and human grade to try. I am wondering if that would be preferable to using a supplement because of this in the article: "Research has not found any adverse effects from consuming vitamin E in food. However, high doses of alpha-tocopherol supplements can cause hemorrhage and interrupt blood coagulation in animals, and in vitro data suggest that high doses inhibit platelet aggregation. " The article goes on to list upper intake levels that have been established.
You can search through all the article there they have some good information regarding what to use, but this one has info about vitamin e. Fish oil decreases the amount of vitamin e which is why you supplement both together.
