Vitamin E and OxLDL

    Attached to my latest labs, there was a lab suggestion of high dose Vit E and betacarotenes in order to reduce my sky high OxLDL.

    In this post @Jack Kruse says that exogenous Vit E should be avoided. which vit E supplement is based on olive oil

    Is vitamin E a friend or foe in my case?

    (Of course I would like to find out which gear in my mitochondrial engine that is faulty instead of supplementing...)

    Ok, so here I am almost one year later, asking the same question since my latest labs once again came back sky high after a trend of decreasing values. 2095 ug/l in a reference range of 20-170 makes me uneasy, to say the least...

    All conventional wisdom says "throw in antioxidants" so it is tempting to biohack Vit E and betacarotenes. But at the same time, it feels like hoping a fuel additive in a Ferrari (or rather Volvo) tank would magically fix a blown piston...

    Agree about focus on mitochondria. Seems like more of a root cause focus to me too.

    Re: Supplements
    Your 2018 comments bring up my own questions about Vit E and the pro and con information out today just past 2020 about antioxidants (Ronda Patrick PhD).
    I found this You Tube video, I like Dr. Jay Davidson but a m not sure about these conclusions.
    Do Not Supplement with Vitamin E - Genetics Genomics - Dr. Jay Davidson

    Here is another online article 2005 I found https://www.geneticlifehacks.com/vitamin-e-genetics-and-inflammation/ I am also sure the form of Vit E matters, quality and perhaps there are other environmental or nutrient co-factors that are still unknown.

    I would like to get away from taking synthetic supplements and I prefer 100% food and herbal supplements, but at this time I do take a lot of all types of supplements and have felt good results with a number of them.

    Wondering if you have learned more about Vit E?
