Can vitamin E and purine be found in fish oil?

2017 March 6


In most cases vitamin E can be found in fish oil as an antioxidant. Currently I use fish oil and I was curious about that. Then I am also curious about the amount of purines. My chiropractor claimed that this substance is not good for the joints, is that right?

Our fish oil contains the natural form of vitamin E, namely mixed tocopherols. This is a balanced mix of several forms of vitamin E (tocopherols). This is better than the mostly used D-tocopherol.

Fish oil does not contain purines. Purines can be found in proteins of fish, not in oil. Although the gelatin wall consists of protein, it does not contain purines either.
