Thank you, Owen
Despite my mci last year, I don't take all the drugs. Except baby aspirin (every second day 35 mg). I want to cut it too, next month. And (look at johnwens answer) I take indeed l-thyrox. Of course I regularly take vitamin E (800 IU). And the lab has really measured nmol lp(a). Value is 137 nmol.
What type of Vitamin E do you take?
Vitamin E complex from Greenfood and tocotrienols from Now.
I just was going to share something I read while getting ready to order some tocotrienols. Nearly every brand including the red palm Now tocotrienols are sneaky in their label description. For example I thought the 50mg of tocotrienols in the Now brand were per pill but here is what the label says, "Mixed Tocotrientol Complex (from Tocomin SupraBio® Red Palm Oil Tocotrienol/Tocopherol Complex)"
So that tells me there is tocopherols included in the 50mg and it does not break down the numbers of each tocotrienol.
The doctors best and life extension both read similar but their website break down the totals with enough searching.
The life extension gamma e formula lists 145mg of tocotrienols but their website says typically contains between 54-73 if you add them up individually.
The doctors best says 50mg of tocotrienols but has a typical range of 36.325-55.
The life extension is 30 dollars and the doctors best is 12.69. So the doctors best seems like the better and cheaper option. Taking vitamins should not take this much searching.
Does anyone know what the best dosage per day of tocotrienols would be?
