Since this product contains ALA which is very dangerous to take (when not according to half-life in small doses, e.i. according to the work of dr. Andrew Cutler) if you have any level av mercury toxicity (which everybody has to some degree), wouldn't this product be far more damaging than helpful?

Best Answer
It is important to remember that Cutler was working with people with mercury and lead toxicity and he used a chelation protocol for treatment. it is always challenging to chelate toxic levels of mercury without doing more harm than good. does this mean that chelators like ALA transport mercury to the brain where it is stored, as i suspect you are suggesting, is a good question. there is no real evidence that it does, and it may well remove heavy metals from the brain which would actually fit better with its mechanisms of action. On balance ALA seems to have positive health benefits across the body so it is difficult to imagine that systemic improvements would actually result in brain toxicity. however, until science clearly answers this one, a few things to remember, stick with chelation protocols as they are there for a reason. there is no evidence that someone without heavy metal poisoning is at risk by taking ALA, and the amount of ALA in the complete E product is very small.

Does it contain d-delta-tocotrienol ? The Label in photo says "d-α-tocopherol 8.75 mg †". Is this an incorrect print ? or is the product something wrong with the content ?
iHerb Customer

Best Answer
The label also says "d-beta & delta tocotrienol 6 mg", so it also contains d-delta tocotrienol.

Best Answer
The magnitude of your phraseology is too copious for my diminutive comprehension. Please be more explicit and use more local, idiomatic colloquialisms.

Why use sesame oil? Certainly better than soybean but it is quite heating, high in omega 6s (easily goes rancid) and I man be intolerant to it anyway
DoctorMav

Best Answer
You should refrigerate ALL of your oil-based supplements to prevent rancidity. If you have enough space in your fridge it's best to put in all softgel/capsule supplements, unless it specifically says "do not refrigerate" such as for many amino acids, which are best kept at room temperature.
