100% Natural source Vitamin E is a key nutrient
for heart health, immune support and nerve and muscle function. This
product contains additional tocopherols: beta, delta and gamma.
As a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin E is an essential ally against
pollution, aging, toxins and other causes of free radical damage. This
is a form which includes mixed tocopherols (alpha, beta, gamma and
delta) which may contribute to a greater health effect than alpha
Mixed Vitamin E is mainly d-alpha tocopherol but retains a natural
balance of d-beta, d-delta and d-gamma tocopherols naturally found in
vegetable oils. This natural form of vitamin E has been extracted by
cold pressing methods that do not damage the tocopherols. No chemical
solvents are used.
Vitamin E (D-alpha-tocopherol) is a fat-soluble vitamin and a powerful
antioxidant, protecting cell membranes from pollution, toxins and free
radicals. Vitamin E is the major antioxidant in lipid body tissues and
the primary defense against lipid peroxidation, particularly in tissues
that contain high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as the
brain and central nervous system. As an antioxidant, vitamin E may help
protect against cardiovascular disease, some cancers, cataracts,
premature aging and other chronic degenerative diseases. It also
protects other vitamins (such as vitamins A and C) from oxidation.
Vitamin E's ability to protect cell membranes makes it valuable for
people in polluted environments and those with active lifestyles, as
physical exertion increases production of free radicals. Approximately
400 IU of vitamin E reduces exercise-induced free radical damage and
helps with athletic performance. Experts agree that obtaining adequate
vitamin E from the daily diet is difficult and therefore recommend daily
Men and women who supplement with at least 100 IU of vitamin E per day
have a 37-41% drop in the risk of heart disease.
CHAOS (Cambridge Heart Antioxidant Study) reported a 77% drop in
nonfatal heart attacks when people were given 400-800 IU of vitamin E
Natural source vitamin E, designated by the prefix D,
(D-alpha-tocopherol), is twice as bioavailable as synthetic vitamin E,
designated by the prefix DL (DL-alpha-tocopherol).
This form of vitamin E may be used topically on the skin. It is reported
to help eliminate scarring after skin injury and sunburn. Simply cut the
capsule and squeeze contents onto skin.
