Supplement Facts: Please see the secondary product image above.
Dosage: Dr. Evan Shute, a Canadian physician internationally recognized for his 30 years of clinical work with Vitamin E stated, "We think that the average normal female should have 400 IU a day and the average normal male about 600 IU a day."
Usage: Vitamin E should be taken at mealtime. Dr. G.E. Desaulniers of the Shute Medical Clinic has shown that Vitamin E is absorbed better when taken with meals rather than on an empty stomach.
Warning: Inorganic iron can destroy Vitamin E. The Shute Institute was the first to discover and announce that inorganic iron, as ferrous sulfate, can be destructive to the Vitamin E when the two are taken together. They suggest that when inorganic iron and Vitamin E are taken, they should be separated in the stomach by an interval of 8 to 9 hours. Organic iron, however, such as that found in raisins, spinach and other iron-rich foods, can be taken at the same time as Vitamin E, with no harm to the Vitamin E. Moderate amounts of organic iron supplements can also be taken with Vitamin E.

If you're a child, or you don't like to swallow capsules, these softgels can be chewed instead.
I chew mine together with my Carlson Vitamin D3 and Nordic Naturals Cod Liver Oil (Lemon flavored) and then I spit out the gel casings after 30 seconds of chewing. My younger kids just swallow the lot - they treat them like gummies! The natural lemon flavor in the cod liver oil masks the taste of all of them, so makes them very easy to take each morning with breakfast.
