    True, maybe the CO2 supercritical extraction removes them. I will ask anyways.

    I dont think so.
    Are those minerals soluble in oil?

    And wheat germ has lots of phytates and that blocks manganese absorption.

    It's not that, because they're not meant to be eaten, it's more like.. why are they appearing together?

    I forgot to comment about the reason for including the vitamin A quote. Raymond mentioned somevvhere that these vitamins have to lock together. If you don't have adequate vitamin A and add a disproportionate amount of E, it can behave oddly.
    Max of the Gersons gave juiced carrots to patients and flushed bile with coffee enemas, there was a lot of carotenes being absorbed. Making it work right can be a task. When the metabolism is weak, the body has difficulty handling nutrients, it appears that they just pass through. Vitamin A depends on a lot of factors to work properly. For a slowered person, it can be beneficial to add nutrients in conjunction, otherwise by the time you try to lock all those factors, they're probably already lost or used for another purpose (after all, the body is likely desperate for them).

    Carotenes in greater amounts can be detrimental but they can also be an useful tool to grasp the proper dosing of cofactors in a safer way. And like it was mentioned, the changes are visible: it's easier to know when you're bearing the excess, when things are moving on the right direction, how other nutrients are affecting, etc, all that with a greater range of control for the body.

    @haidut Is there any reason why this could make a person nauseous and put them in a not very good mood? I typically just leave it in my mouth and don't swallow it, so I don't think it's a serotonin issue, but I could be wrong.

    For anyone who has tried this, what's a good starting dose, and how long should one wait before redosing?

    The policosanols may irritate the gut in some people, and produce similar effects to MCT - nausea and discomfort. It seems to pass after a few days. Also, some people reported even pure vitamin E giving them such symptoms and some have tied it to immune activation. I think @Wilfrid had poor experience with vitamin E due to his GI issues.

    besides antagonizing K2, is there any reason not to take this daily, at the RDA? i know ray had calcium issues from wheat germ oil but iirc that was high dose for awhile, plus it was wheat germ oil

    For PUFA protection even much lower doses are sufficient. But using 800 IU daily for a few weeks did not seem to cause any issues in the human studies that looked at it.

    It's also a good source of molybdenum. It isn't difficult to not get enough in a diet without seeds (legumes, grains, nuts), shellfish or organ meats.
