Hi Nia,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Adequate vitamin intake while breastfeeding plays a very good role in maintaining stamina while producing quality breast milk, including vitamin E. Not only that, vitamin E is also known to have various other benefits, including:

Has a high antioxidant effect
Maintain body resistance
Maintain eye health
Maintain healthy skin
Maintain a healthy heart and blood vessels
Maintain gastrointestinal health, and so on

Healthy breastfeeding mothers need about 19 mg of vitamin E every day, the equivalent of 28.5 IU. The maximum dose for vitamin E consumption is no more than 1000 mg or the equivalent of 1500 IU.


The product you mentioned contains 100 IU of vitamin E. When viewed from the content alone, this supplement is actually safe for consumption by nursing mothers. But back again, often, each person's vitamin E needs can be different depending on body posture, medical history, and general health conditions. Therefore, for long-term consumption, we recommend that you consult your doctor first.


In the meantime, it would be much better if you try to meet your vitamin E needs through natural sources, for example by increasing the consumption of green vegetables, vegetable oils, margarine, poultry, beef, eggs, fruit, nuts, fortified cereals, and etc.


Hope this helps ..
