Vitamin E is an important nutrient that helps your body in a variety of ways. You should get enough from a healthy, balanced diet. The highest safe level of vitamin E supplements for adults is 1,500 IU/day for natural forms of vitamin E, and 1,000 IU/day (or 1,000 milligrams/day) for the man-made (synthetic) form.
