Is Vitamin E Fat Soluble?
Vitamin E IS fat soluble.
All vitamins are either fat-soluble or water-soluble. The water-soluble vitamins, B-complex and C, are excreted from the body when you urinate. Fat soluble vitamins, on the other hand, (A,D,E,K) are stored in the liver and fatty tissue until the body needs them.
Vitamin E Toxicity
All vitamins that are fat-soluble have the potential to be toxic if taken in excess. Too much vitamin E can cause fatigue, weakness, headache, nausea, blurred vision, and diarrhea.
