 Is it safe to take vitE sourced from soybean?after trying 250mg resveratrol,and 100mg whole grape extract for 13 days tried mixed tocopherols 400IU taken together with 100mg Ubiquinol. it lowered the blood pressure to normal. while resveratrol lowered systolic by 10 points the diastolic remained at 99-100 early morning.on 14th day replaced resveratrol and whole grape with mixed tocopherols. Taken together with ubiquinol it lowered it to 92/68 in the evening and 115/85 in the early morning with just one pill after lunch.so continuing to take it but on alternate days.

Also was on buffered vit-c 1.6 gm/day as Dr.Mercola pointed out that combinig  a fat soluble antioxidant with a water soluble antioxidant would yield better results.

want to lower the dose to 200IU and take it everyday along with ubiquinol and observe.

Now just read that soybean oil  source for mixed tocopherols have harmful herbicides and goitrogens.is it true???

Are there any brands which don't use soybean as a source?.wat Is the half-life of mixed tocopherol vit-E?.

Also would like to know if any one not on blood thinners but with high BP benefitted from mixed tocopherols.

can anyone can share their experiences with mixed tocopherols or in combination with vit-c or other antioxidants?

Thank You all in advance.

While medical science hasn't reached any firm conclusions regarding the effects of soy on the thyroid, the amount of soy isoflavones in a small capsule of vitamin E derived from soy wouldn't be much. The same could be said for herbicide or pesticide residues. (Life Extension's Gamma E Tocopherol product is not derived from organic oil.)

This article http://jn.nutrition.org/content/early/2011/06/29/jn.111.138925.full.pdf discusses tocopherols' half lives.

Thank You for the information.

 I think Vitamin-C is working synergistically with vitamin E in effectively combating inflammation which might be helping to maintain normal BP.Even a little salt restriction in addition to these is helping to reduce drug dosages.

Diuretics have been causing muscle cramps.Thanks to Magnesium for saving from such cramps.

but one Question, which form of Magnesium is Good for Diabetics and those with borderline high serum creatinine 1.2(women)?.low dose magnesium citrate or Magnesium chloride?

Thank You.

I suggest you stay completely away from soy.  I can say with 100% certainty that soy is toxic to thyroid function.  Unfortunately almost all vitamin E supplements contain soy.  However, Unique E does not, and that's what I take.

I don't understand this extreme phobia of soy. Sure, if you are allergic, avoid its every instance of appearance, but short of that there's simply no reason to fearfully scan for the existence of traces of soybean. I have customers come into my store breathlessly demanding refunds on bottles of vitamins because they found out it has a trace amount of lecithin used in manufacturing that comes from soy and by golly, "soy will kill your thyroid". You probably couldn't even find a single picogram of soy phytoestrogens in a dose, and yet someone told them to avoid soy like the plague.

For what it's worth, I consume the evil plant known as soy on a regular basis, I even grow soybeans in my garden. I also get a complete blood thyroid panel twice yearly, my levels always check out perfectly.
