Vitamins: Facts, Fiction and Politics, Part 4

By Dr Scott Preibe


1. Exposing the Research on Natural Vitamin E and Synthetic Vitamin E


Richard P. Murray, D.C., “What is a Vitamin”, Lecture Notes, 1984 – 1993


Understanding the Functional Architecture of Vitamin E Complex:


Rotruck, et al., University of Wisconsin, found selenium to be a component of an enzyme system involved in O2 transport and an essential partner of vitamin E. He reports “without selenium, vitamin E cannot perform many of its functions.”


Years ago, Dr. Royal Lee stated:


The natural live vitamin complex carries trace mineral activators … and … without the said trace element activators, the vitamin fails in its metabolic function.


  • Copper in its organic, biologically active form, tyrosinase, is the trace element activator of the vitamin C complex.
  • Likewise, manganese activates the vitamin B complex.
  • In turn, selenium is the trace mineral activator of the vitamin E complex.

In 1955, Dr. Royal Lee explained that the vitamin E complex embraced:


  1. The tocopherol antioxidants
  2. Xanthine
  3. Phospholipids [F2]
  4. Lipositols
  5. Sex hormone precursors

Dr. Royal Lee expounded:


The tocopherols appear to act purely as antioxidants; protective agents for the more complex parts of the vitamin E assemblage.


As usual, time and competent research proved Dr. Royal Lee accurate in his early observations.


2. The Functional Architecture of the Vitamin E Complex:

  • Lipositols are essential to cholesterol metabolism in order that cholesterol be altered to a biochemical state acceptable to the synthesis of adrenal and sex hormones.
  • Vitamin F (F1) is the active form of unsaturated fatty acid described in the Annual Review of Biochemistry, 1949. Vitamin F restores and maintains calcium in tissue fluids and considered as possibly being anticarcinogenic.
  • F2 is part of the phospholipid complex in nerve structures, particularly the myelin sheath. It also promotes tissue repair and enhances the benefits of the antiarthritic Wulzen factor. F2 (Super-EFF) could very well be the missing link in pernicious anemia according to Dr. Lee.
  • E2 is a part of the vitamin E complex that has been compared to nitroglycerine in its function of relieving angina-type pains … the hypoxic spasm of the myocardium. E2 reduces pain because it increases the oxygen-conserving factor of the blood. Phonocardiogram comparisons confirm this effect of E2 with indications that it exerts a similar O2 conservation within the heart cell.
  • The E3 component of the vitamin E complex … according to reports from Drug Trade News, 1949 - 1950 - 1951, is obviously a precursor of sex hormones. Also, the E3 factor is similar to the cabbage juice vitamin U which was developed by Dr. Garnett Chaney at Stanford University, and found useful in Peptic Ulcer Syndrome. In turn, E3 would be considered as an important factor in the natural therapeusis of gastrointestinal problems.

3. Chromatogram: Wheat Germ Oil vs Alpha Tocopherol


V. E. Irons, Inc., “There is a Difference”, April 1960, p. 6


4. Wheat Germ Oil vs Alpha Tocopherol


Bicknell and Prescott, The Vitamins in Medicine, 3rd ed., 1953, pp. 592, 627


Wheat germ and wheat-germ oil were found to have a remarkably high content of vitamin E, and remain to this day the best source. – p. 592


The advantage of the pure tocopherols is that enormous oral doses may be given, though most of such doses are excreted. – p. 627


5. Restless Legs


  • Natural forms of vitamin E complex lose up to 99% of their potency when separated from their natural synergists. (Annual Review Biochemistry, 1943, page 381) These synergists include tannins, fatty acids (vitamin F complex), phospholipids and other synergistic factors.
  • Chemically purified vitamin E (tocopherols) in high unit dosages reverses its effect and produces the same symptoms as a deficiency, including bone decalcification. (Bicknell and Prescott, The Vitamins in Medicine, 3rd ed., 1953, p. 623)
  • [Restless legs or leg cramps at night (usually a calcium deficiency complaint) can be relieved with high levels of alpha-tocopherol which decalcify bone, thereby releasing calcium back into the blood stream and into the muscles thus, stopping the cramping. Instead of creating osteoporosis to prevent restless legs, give the patient calcium lactate.]

Side Note: Side Effects of Alpha-Tocopherol


Hypertension, thrombophlebitis, pulmonary embolism, painful or enlarged breasts, severe fatigue, hastening of or aggravation of angina pectoris, inflammation, hives, headache, and hypoglycemia etc.




Research evaluates risks, benefits of smallpox vaccine by Susan Okie, The Washington Post, The Birmingham News, 5A, Wednesday, May 8, 2002


A mass campaign to vaccinate Americans against smallpox might result in 200 to 300 deaths and make several thousands people severely ill … The vaccine’s most serious potential side effects are encephalitis (brain inflammation) and progressive vaccinia, in which the sore produced by the vaccine spreads without healing. Either can be fatal.
