I took Vitamin E 800 IU for several years, then, it apparently built up in my system and caused restless leg syndrome. Stopped the Vitamin E and legs settled down and have had no problem for a few years now.
Get some wheat germ oil which has naturally occuring vitamin e. Anything that is naturally occuring is less likely to become toxic. Of course, foods are the best as far as safety. Almonds are very high in vitamin e.
Also research showing that the Mixed Tocopherols (alpha, beta,delta,gamma) are better for the body than just Alpha Tocopherol. Some of the studies showing Alpha Tocopherol not having much effect on Cancer or Heart Disease are remarkably different when all 4 of the Tocopherols are involved. Also the Tocotrienols are of the Tocopherol family of Vitamin-E.......

Vitamins in the States are not regulated by any government agency-- so if you buy any supplement including E you should buy it from a reputable company.
Many years ago I asked a number of manufacturers if they had their products tested by an independant testing Lab-- the only one that responded was -- Nature's Plus---
Since then, I have only used their Vitamin E natrual-- d alpha tocopherol but I am sure their are other that manufacture good vitamins.
I take 800 IU daily since reading the Book -- Vitamin E and the Healthy Heart-- written by 2 brothers-- that were Heart Specialist Medical Doctors that did their research in London, Onterio, Canada many years ago.
In their book they wrote of buying 10 differant vit E caps--- tested them and only one was 75% of what was advertised --- I have no doubt this practice still exist today.
My problem with getting your Vitamin E from seeds or almonds or any food -- is-- How do you know that the almonds/seeds were grown in good soil that contained enough vitamins and has not been depleted of many vital nutrinents?
Also, is your digestive system (enzymes and stomach acids) good enough to extract what you need?? Do you chew them enough? Alot of variables and not simple!
I wish Ya'll well in your searches--- time will certainly tell~~~Harry
