Our dietary supplement Gamma E Tocopherols is formulated using four forms of vitamin E. There are actually eight different forms of this vitamin – four tocotrienols and four tocopherols. Our product Gamma E contains the four tocopherols: alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherol. Alpha-tocopherol is the most important form for human health; it is easily absorbed and accumulated in the body.
While many vitamin E supplements contain the alpha-tocopherol form, our product has been specially formulated to also include three other forms. Of these, gamma-tocopherol is currently the most widely studied because of its potential neuroprotective effects. Indeed, some results suggest it inhibits a free radical called peroxynitrite, an element which is potentially harmful to neurons. Based on the latest scientific research, our product Gamma E Tocopherols is offered in the form of a softgel, at a suggested dose of one softgel a day. This dosage can be adjusted in line with your therapist's advice.
The composition of our Gamma E Tocopherols represents a valuable source of vitamin E. Discovered during the 20th century, vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin which is essential for normal bodily function. Like all vitamins, it is involved in many processes in the body, though it has a particular role in providing antioxidant protection. Generally less well-known than vitamin C, vitamin E has nonetheless been the subject of numerous scientific studies, as reported in the journal Nutranews. As with vitamin C, studies attribute vitamin E with:
While it is found primarily in vegetable oils and nuts, dietary vitamin E intake can sometimes be inadequate, potentially leading to deficiency. Lack of vitamin E manifests as a burning sensation and pain in the hands and feet. If it is not diagnosed early, vitamin E deficiency can lead to complications such as neuromuscular and retinal problems or immune system disorders. Supplementation may thus prove necessary to restore the body's vitamin E levels.
