Gelatin Free Vitamin E

As salaamu alaikum

I've been looking for Gelatin Free Vitamin E Supplement tablets/pills for some people and I keep finding that they all have Gelatin from pork sources

Its really beneficial for people with high cholesterol, although taking too many can be harmful as well.

Does anyone in the US know where either multivitamins that contain vitamin E or just Vitamin E supplements can be found without Gelatin or with kosher gelatin / plant gelatin?

Based on what I found online - its readily available in the UK but I haven't found any in the US

Also - is the ruling for this similar to the ruling for porcine derived ingredients in doritos? or does the gelatin making process make this different?

Jazak Allah Khair

I actually called NatureMade before I started the thread, but I asked them what the source of Gelatin was in their Vitamin E products (they said it was pork), forgot to ask about MultiVitamins - I'll look into it inshaAllah

I looked into the contents of NatureMade's "MultiVitamin for Her" - it does not include Vitamin E. It has selenium, which does some of the same things Vitamin E does; but the multivitamin does not contain vitamin E.

If anyone knows of a Vitamin E containing halaal or kosher supplement / vitamin / multivitamin that would be aWeSoMe

Jazak Allah Khair

Check out the nutrilite brand. A lot of its supplements are certified halal. They have a multivitamin called 'daily' that has a 100% supply of the required amount of Vit E.

i guess i wasnt so sure after all , I was looking it up on their website and I guess I somehow missed that, but I just checked agian and found it - Jazak Allah Khair

I was looking this up for other people- they're going to be so relieved alhumdulillah (it was recommended that they should take Vitamin E and they've been avoiding it all this time because of the gelatin issue)
