there absoulutely no reason to worry about going slighlty over the RDA for vitamin E. the RDAs were set up to outline a daily average amount needed to prevent deficiency disease, not to necessarily promote optimum health. vit E is fat soluble but a large percentage of daily intake is excreted in the faeces and isn't stored to such an extent that it is regarded as falling in terms of categorisation as somewhere between a fat soluble and water soulble vitamin in terms of storage in the body. many people take many thousands times the RDA of vit E for its anti-oxidant properties. its safe for them. infact its very beneficial. taking slightly over the RDA of vit E is not dangerous at all.
