    Default 1000 IU Vit E--anyone purchased from these guys?

    All natural d-alpha Vit E, 1000 IU:

    http://www.vitabase.com/supplements/...it-e-1000.aspx

    This place winds up being $75.48 all in for 400 gel caps, or about 19 cents per 1000 IUs, which seems like a pretty good deal?

    I have never used that company to buy natural vitamin e.

    You would probably do better with Puritan's Pride, who I have been using, or Swanson Vitamins, if they ever get the 1000 iu natural vitamin e back in stock.

    Good luck!

    I bought the natural E from Smart Pak and also the Elevate from Kentucky Horse Products. My horse won't eat the gel caps or made for human consumption types.

    Nice deal on the Puritan's Pride! About 13 cents per 1000 IUs.

    Iberiansyes, I've used the Elevate in the past and had no issues with it, other than the cost.

    I ordered from Healthy Origins and had great service from them. 400, 1000IU gels for $40 ish. Puritans pride is definitely cheaper though!!

    Huge fan of Puritan's Pride. I use them all the time and they ship fast. Look for coupons in retailmenot.com

    I get mine from www.vitacost.com.

    250, 1000 IU gel caps of natural vitamin E for $35.00. Shipping is free if you spend over $50.

    Very good service and fast shipping. I get my (personal human) vitamins from them too.

    Yes. d-alpha is natural. dl-alpha is synthetic.

    Also, keep an eye out at Wal-Mart for things on clearance. About a year ago they were getting rid of the natural vit. E human capsules in a certain IU size (can't remember what it was), for $5 a bottle. I bought every single one they had, then went back a couple days later when they'd restocked the shelves and bought all those too! Must've thought I was either crazy or planning something nefarious. Only thing that sucks is my oldest broodie refuses to eat the gelcaps, so I always have to have an alternate form on hand just for Her Highness.

    Thanks Simkie!

    I was told dl- or -acetate was not the 100% natural so thanks for clarifying.

    I also use vitacost.com. Fast shipping and my mare gobbles up her gelcap. I had used elevate powder in the past, and I think I've gotten better results from the gelcap. Maybe the liquid elevate is better, but, I think it's more expensive.

    I also order from Vitacost. I used to get it from Swanson, which was the best price I could find, but they have not had it available for months now. My horses all eat the gelcaps fine, so easy and cheap.
