    Studies published many years ago showed that for vitamin E to continue to function as an antioxidant within the body, adequate levels of vitamin C must be present to regenerate (donate more electrons) to vitamin E so that it can continue to prevent oxidation of lipids. Any study about vitamin E that restricts the participants from also taking vitamin C is setting up the study to show nothing more than how vitamin E is quickly “used up,” and not regenerated to continuously provide an antioxidant benefit. It tells us nothing about the real benefits that can be obtained from proper supplementation.

    So looking at that as well as the correct formulation of vitamin E is critical:
    Vitamin E is a family of nutrients; alpha, delta, and gamma-tocopherols and tocotrienols. There is a difference between the synthetic (petroleum-derived) vitamin E, dl apha-tocopherol , and the natural (food-based ) vitamin E, d alpha-tocopherol. Gamma-tocopherol is a critical form of vitamin E needed to reduce the oxidation of lipids (cholesterol) in conjunction with alpha-tocopherol. (J Am Copll Cardiol. 1999 Oct:34(4):1208-15, Pro Natl Acad Sci USA, 1993 Mar 1:90(5):1771-5) In addition, studies have shown that people who supplement solely with vitamin E in the alpha-tocopherol form are at risk to lower the blood levels of a critical form of vitamin E, gamma-tocopherol. (J Nutr. 2003 Oct:133(10):3137-40; J Nutr.1985 Jun:115(6):807-13 ) The average American’s blood-****** is five times more rich in alpha-tocopherol than gamma-tocopherol, and that difference jumps 20-fold among people who take vitamin E as alpha-tocopherol without gamma tocopherol.

    One of my mentors noted that: “If doctors and the public were simply made aware of the poorly designed analyses that denigrate vitamin E supplementation, and the significant studies about the benefits of taking vitamin E, in the form of alpha-tocopherol and gamma-tocopherol (along with delta-tocopherol and the mixed tocotrienols) along with vitamin C and vitamin K, which replenishes the antioxidant abilities of vitamin E, then I believe that not only would people need less medication and reduce the economic crisis in the health care industry, but more importantly people could enjoy the true health and happiness that can be obtained by eating right, exercise, and proper supplementation with a full spectrum of quality vitamins and minerals. Vitamin E, in the natural form (as described above), appears to be safe up to at least 2000 IU per day.”

    The proper form of Vit E has been shown to improve sperm motility as well as the DNA inside sperm from damage (and along with other antioxidants improves ICSI outcomes). There are tons of studies on how proper form of Vit E in association with other antioxidants and vitamins reduce the incidence of death for those with heart disease! So I’d say it’s a fantastic vitamin. But not sure about 3000IU a day though... you’d have to check on that amount with a nutritional expert – (you mentioned 3000mg but I think you may have meant IU)?

    sorry for the long post - just thought it may help...
    Thanks for posting that very interesting

    Update from me
    Lining good (9mm) that's the only thing I've never had a problem with, just never anything to put in it!
    Donor had her scan and looks like 10 eggs, they are slow growing but that's exactly what happened last time, they have increased her dosage, why they didn't just do a larger dose to start with annoys me a bit!
    Still not excited, just awaiting more heartache

    Caesardust, I have been having the same thought. My 2nd full cycle I wasn't on vitamin E, my 3rd one I'd been taking it for several months. 2nd cycle 11 eggs = 4 embryos transferred (3 great, 1 didn't defrost well), 3rd cycle 6 eggs = 1 embryo which became tiny fragments floating around when defrosted. The only difference was the vitamin E and the DHEA. I am telling myself it's not anything I did, but it's hard not to find something to blame myself for...
