Vitamin (Gamma E) Alpha Tocopherol / Tocotrienols Supplements - Dose

Gamma E Tocopherol/Tocotrienols -- 60 softgels

This product contains Tocomin Full-Spectrum Palm Tocotrienol Complex.  Tocomin is the registered trademark of Carotech. Inc.  To keep our products pure and natural, no color has been added to these soft gelatin capsules. The natural separation of active ingredients may occur.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant derived from plants.  It is a family of nutrients that includes tocopherol and tocotrienols, each with their own subfamilies of alpha, beta, gamma and delta substances.  Unless your brand contains the full spectrum of these nutrients, you may not be getting the full benefits of vitamin E.

The fact is most commercial vitamin E supplements do not contain the gamma form of the vitamin, depriving you of the full range of its antioxidant effects.131,132  The vitamin E you buy at the local pharmacy is mostly alpha-tocopherol.

A vitamin E fraction called tocotrienols are showing positive effects on human and animal physiological and biological functions.133-140*

It must be noted here that alpha- tocopherol is known to be an important antioxidant.  But, when combined with other parts of the vitamin, the benefits are significantly enhanced.132*  Tocotrienols have shown superior action in maintaining arterial health.133-139*  This wonder nutrient is so effective because of its structure of double bonds in the isoprenoid side chain, making it a great scavenger of free radicals.139*

Besides the focus on the merits of tocotrienols and tocopherol, it is important to supplement with the gamma, and not just the alpha, form of the vitamin.  Scientists have found that too much alpha-tocopherol displaces the gamma fraction of vitamin E in the body.141-147  Just imagine how much a complete vitamin E formula can do in its fight against the effects of harmful free radicals.131,132*
