PUFA Protect (Vitamin E)
WHAT IS PUFA PROTECT?
Pure Vitamin E in a base of MCT Oil with mixed tocopherols. The primary way that excessive polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs) break down healthy tissue is by depleting them of Vitamin E.
BENEFITS of Vitamin E:
- Supports tissue oxygenation*
- Reduces oxidation of lipid membranes by PUFAs*
- Protects against lipid peroxidation*
- Increases conversion of linoleic acid (PUFA) into saturated fat*
- Protects skin loaded with PUFAs from ultraviolet sun damage*
- Improves circulation*
- Improves mitochondrial respiration*
- Protects from free radical damage*
- Opposes all negative effects of estrogen*
- Decreases vitamin A burn rate*
- Decreases progesterone burn rate*
- Protects against calcification and iron overload*
The common person would classify omega-3s as "healthy fats", omega-6s as "bad fats" and saturated fat as something to avoid or limit. The reality is the exact opposite!
Unsaturated fats are long chains with multiple double bonds that don't contain as many hydrogen atoms as saturated fats.
What does this mean in English? They are more prone to oxidation! It doesn't matter how well processed or preserved an omega-3 oil is when it gets inside a body full of heat, oxygen and excess iron.
It's called lipid peroxidation! Excess iron stored in the tissues is the match that initiates the process. The chain reaction (called the Fenton reaction) creates cancer-causing products such as acrolein and leads to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, heart attacks, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, aging, depression, anxiety, fatigue, Alzheimer's disease, dementia, skin conditions, autoimmune disorders and more! It is the unspoken poison because it is a multi billion dollar industry!
In order of most unstable to most stable: highly unsaturated fatty acids (omega-3s) -> polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3s and 6s) -> monounsaturated fat -> saturated fat -> cholesterol
We have been programmed to fear animal fats and praise the fats in nuts, seeds, grains, legumes and soy as being superior. The fact is that it is the animal foods that are responsible for growth and development and they are predominately saturated.
WHEN OMEGA-3's BECOME DEADLY...
It is one thing to consume a small amount of nuts and seeds (NOT large amounts of nut butters and nut "milks") when the majority of your diet consists of stable life-supporting saturated fat. It is another to consume extracts of PUFA's, namely: algae oil, fish oil, krill oil, seal oil, fatty salmon oil, canola oil, corn oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, sesame oil, peanut oil, etc.
When we consume these in multiple grams on a daily basis for years (for example, our entire lives), in combination with retinol (vitamin A) deficiency and excess iron stored in our tissues, we get surprise diagnoses of all of the diseases listed above.
Do NOT supplement with omega-3 concentrates such as algae oil, fish oil, or krill oil, or cook with vegetable oils. Unfermented, unfortified cod liver oil is the exception because of retinol's (vitamin A) powerful role in protecting against lipid peroxidation. It also contains monounsaturated and saturated fatty acids to balance out the PUFAs.
The average consumer would be shocked to learn how many restaurant establishments cook in vegetable oil. Even if the meal contains a lot of saturated fat, if the food is cooked in inflammatory omega-3 vegetable oils, you will likely experience a net loss in your overall health.
THE SCARY PART
Not only do PUFAs wreak havoc on our system immediately upon digestion, blocking the ability of normal cellular metabolism and shifting it towards a cancer-promoting metabolism, but they are stored in the tissues. This is rarely talked about.
Under stress (when our blood sugar isn't stable, when we skip meals, when we get cut off in traffic, when we get into an argument with our partner, when we're over-exercising, when we're under slept, when we're exposed to harmful electromagnetic fields) the cortisol begins to breakdown our tissues for energy and PUFAs are released into our bloodstream.
Once in the blood they circulate for many hours, suppressing our metabolism. Think about which organisms contain high levels of omega-3s: cold water fish like wild Alaskan salmon. Their tissues have to be made of high levels of these unsaturated fats to be able to even move their muscles in the frigid temperatures. But you aren't a fish in cold water; you're a human with a temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
Do you have cold hands and feet? Thyroid problems? Anxiety? Stubborn body fat? Did you know that "essential" fatty acids became popular when farmers discovered that they can slow the metabolism of their livestock and fatten them up? Fatter animals means more money that they get at the market when they sell their meat. Guess what? Excess PUFA's make you fat too.
Vitamin E was discovered in 1922 by H.M. Evans and K.S. Bishop. It is one of the major fat soluble vitamins that are required for vital health along with vitamin A, D, and K. Of those four vitamins, vitamin E is the hardest to find.
Nature built it into all foods that contain PUFAs. Vitamin E is in grassfed beef, nuts, seeds, fish, shellfish and grains. The only thing is that vitamin E is lost when foods are heated. Most people consume cooked nuts and seeds so we aren't even getting small amounts of vitamin E that way.
Contrary to what we often hear, it is very safe to supplement.* Doses up to 3,000 IU/mg a day have been used to improve eye conditions [1, 2] and mental retardation [1, 2].* While PUFAs, especially omega-3s, cause muscular dystrophy, vitamin E may help to improve it.*
Dr. Shute was the one that pioneered high dose vitamin E, using it to help more than 20,000 of his patients with conditions ranging from heart disease to infertility (both of which are caused by excess PUFAs).
Vitamin E increases the conversion of linoleic acid into saturated fat. It protects the skin from ultraviolet light which increases lipid peroxidation when it reacts with PUFAs. It protects against many of the damaging effects of excess iron and calcium.
WHY TAKE MITOLIFE PUFA PROTECT
You're eating outside of the home with friends and family and you don't want to be that person micro-managing every ingredient that goes into the meal. You're with a large group of people and some of them are not as health conscious as you. It is okay to let go every once in awhile and not care when you're out enjoying good company. But if you're healing from a chronic condition or just want to be on the top of your game, you still partake but have Mitolife PUFA Protect in a small ziplock bag that you take with you to lunch and dinner.
This vitamin E extract will protect your cells from the ravages of lipid peroxidation. It contains not only d-alpha tocopherol, the form used in most of the studies, but also mixed tocopherols, including beta, gamma, and delta which make it more of a whole-food extract.
Or you can use it like Matt Blackburn, the founder of Mitolife does, to help decrease stress and mitigate any damage that could be caused while the PUFA gets out of the tissues. It takes about four years to detoxify excess polyunsaturated fats from your tissues.
HOW TO DETOX PUFA:
Displace them with saturated fats, supplement vitamin E, consume carbohydrates consistently, consume animal protein consistently and do everything you can to lower the amount of stressors while increasing your resilience to stress. The liver needs glycogen to detox PUFAs and the body needs vitamin E because PUFAs create a vitamin E deficiency. We have been consuming them in large amounts our entire lives!
Three capsules contain 1,332 mg of mixed tocopherols, mostly from d-alpha tocopherol and gamma tocopherol, with trace amounts of beta and delta tocopherol.

Just started taking the E (3 capsules as recommended) but they make me so nauseous. Should I slowly build up to tolerate 3 at a time? Want to continue so I can reap all the amazing benefits but don’t know if taking less than 3 will give me what I need?
I started breaking out after using this vitamin E and I don't see any difference from this other vitamin E I used before that didn't break me out.
I wish you would at least offer the larger size again for those of us with NASH. I have to now take 6 of these!
These have been a game changer for me. My hormone levels are balancing and I no longer have 5 “good” days during a month, but instead have a few uncomfortable days. Thank you! I am super bummed with the price hike though and I felt like the previous dose was stronger. The price has almost doubled if you take all 3 pills vs the one large one from previous batches.
I’ve seen some improvement in my skin love this product
