Vitamin E Supplements

Vitamin E is the generic name for a group of closely related and naturally occurring fat soluble compounds, the tocopherols. Of these, alpha-tocopherol is biologically the most potent.

Natural Vitamin E derived from natural vegetables oil is known as D-Alpha Tocopherol and synthetic one as D-1 Alpho Tocopherol Acetate. It is claimed natural Vitamin E has 36% greater potency, and it remains in the body for a much longer period, and twice as effective as compared to synthetic Vitamin E.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that fights damaging natural substances known as free radicals. It is incorporated into the fat-based tissues of the body, such as the heart, fat-carrier molecules such as LDL (bad cholesterol), and our cell membranes, where it acts to stabilize these structures and protect them from free radical attack. Vitamin E also protects our cells from compounds such as lead, mercury, and other heavy metals. Vitamin E is complimentary to vitamin C, and it's recommended that people take them together.

Water-soluble vitamin E is preferred for people who have difficulty absorbing fat and may suffer from deficiencies consuming fat-soluble vitamins. Because of vitamin E's strong antioxidant effects, it's an important part of an individual's daily regimen, and addresses heart health, men's and women's health, longevity, prenatal care, memory, and fitness.
