It depends. If you are sufferning from a deficiency of it then it's useful. If not then it's somewhere between pointless and toxic.

And what is the criterea to determine if one has a deficiency of Vitamin E? More to the point, I was wondering what the benefits are since I think some of the claims - like anti-oxidizing properties -  were exaggerated or ill founded in the past.

Vitamin E has indeed been disappointing in many clinical trials.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
Most poems rhyme,
but this one doesn't

"And what is the criterea to determine if one has a deficiency of Vitamin E?"
"If you are sufferning from a deficiency of it (Vit E) then it's useful. "
I realise this is a circular definition.
