Make sure the vitamin E supplement you take passed our quality review and is right for you!
Isn't your health worth it?
Who needs to take a vitamin E supplement and what should you look for in a vitamin E supplement, cream or oil? ConsumerLab.com answers these questions and more in this report, in which you'll also get results of  ConsumerLab.com's tests of popular vitamin E products.
 
There is a lot of confusion about vitamin E. Some studies indicate we need more, while others show that few people are deficient. You'll get a straight answer in this report.
 
Our tests found that not all vitamin E supplements are the same - with big differences in types and amounts of compounds they contain. Among "natural" vitamin E products, for example, ConsumerLab.com found that some provide the full spectrum of naturally occurring tocopherols and tocotrienols in the vitamin E family. These compounds may play important roles in the effectiveness and safety of vitamin E. Other "natural" products provide primarily alpha-tocopherol (the most active vitamin E compound), but little else.
 
ConsumerLab.com also shows you which products are best priced, so you can spend as little as possible and still get a high quality product.
 
In this comprehensive report about vitamin E supplements, creams, and oils, you'll get test results and quality ratings for 19 products, including 8 that passed our voluntary Quality Certification Program, plus information about 2 other products similar to those tested. You'll learn:
