    Had never noticed this before: http://raypeat.com/articles/articles/vitamin-e.shtml That it contains vitamin A is well known, and K fairly well known, but I hadn't figured it as a source of vitamin E. Given that supplement forms of E can be problematic, it's good to know we can get it...

    Lauric Acid Induces Liver Mitochondrial Uncoupling

    This is probably one of the main reasons for the protective effects of coconut oil on liver health in conditions like NAFLD and cirrhosis. In fact, there are studies on PubMed showing complete reversal of cirrhosis with daily intake of about 75g of MCT such as the ones found in coconut oil, even...

    As a follow up on my previous post, this study looks at toxicity of retinol acetate in doses exceeding 300,000 IU per day taken for months and in combination with a SERM (tamoxifen) which itself is quite estrogenic and as such is a proven liver burden. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3218964
