Dr. Todorav,
I am a an athlete and do many sports like tennis, swimming, running, and weightlifting. Should I be taking 400 IU of vitamine E? I am not worried about price. Which one is better for me to get NATURAL E-400 I.U. MIXED TOCOPHEROLS or 100% NATURAL HIGH GAMMA TOCOPHEROL. I am confused about which product is better. If you recommend the 100% NATURAL HIGH GAMMA TOCOPHEROL should I be taking 400 mg instead of 200 mg. Which is the best vitamin E on the market today. I do not mean brand but which form. Thank you.

Generally, it is better to get your antioxdiants from food rather than supplements. But if one were to take a vitamin E supplement, mixed tocopherols are better. In fact it is probably best to have a mix of both tocopherols + tocotrienols. There is not enough data to say what exact mix is optimal. Sorry, I do not track individual brands.
