    Hi there. Which one is the best price wise?

    Thorne Ultimate E (Mixed tocopherols only):

    Vitamin E 500 IU
    €38.77 - 60 servings (gelcaps)
    Derived from various oils including soybean oil
    I cannot verify if their product is GMO or not. Please examine their quality page to make a verdict: https://www.thorne.com/quality It actually makes no mention of GMO?
    Used ''molecular distillation'' to make their product.

    Carlson E-Gems Plus (Mixed tocopherols only):
    Vitamin E 400 IU
    €29.01 - 144 servings (gelcaps)
    Unclear from what oils it is derived, derived from soybean oil according to https://www.toxinless.com/vitamin-e but possibly from more oils as well.
    It cannot be determined wether or not it is GMO or not. See the following to make a verdict:
    Source of these 2 quotes: https://www.toxinless.com/vitamin-e#comments

    TocoVit (mixed tocopherols and other natural occuring vitamin E substances from wheat germ oil):
    Vitamin E 400 IU
    €32.26 - 30 servings (liquid drops)
    Derived exclusively from wheat germ oil
    Unclear if GMO or non-GMO, see https://raypeatforum.com/community/threads/tocovit-liquid-vitamin-e-from-wheat-germ-oil.10929/ to make a verdict.


    Which one would be the best, price-quality wise? I think it would be Carlson vs. Thorne Research purely due to cost/serving ratio. Which one would be the best? Is Thorne Research really superior or is it just overpriced?

    I need to know this for blood thinning for a relative, for a potential thrombosis in the right leg.

    Thanks!!!


    Edit: An addition:

    Health Natura Whole E (Mixed tocopherols only):
    Vitamin E 400 IU
    €19.34 - 85 servings (liquid drops)
    Derived from soybean oil, unclear if derived from any other oils as well.
    Non-GMO according to website apparently: https://www.healthnatura.com/product-p/wholee2oz.htm

    I am not sure if it is a good deal price wise... Atleast you mean that vitamin E that's in a capsule right?

    Tocovit if you can afford it. With the new upgrade is not even that expensive and the quality is on another league. If I would have the funds I would buy it by the kg.

    Hmm interesting, but does it possess the same anti-clotting/vitamin K antagonistic properties as D-alpha-tocopherol-acetate?

    Both are alpha tocopherol esters but the succinate is better. Just google alpha tocopherol succinate and you will see how it trumps the rest of the esters used in cancer treatment and prevention studies.

    Yeah, no problem with that. Even Ray Peat quotes studies done only with alpha tocopherol succinate.

    I used the thorn vitamin E product 2 years ago. Didn't feel anything from it.

    I've just finished one bottle. The only thing I have noticed is more frequent and harder morning wood, so must be doing something :P
