Vitamin E is essential for maintaining the integrity, function, and flexibility of cell membranes. Vitamin E is also an important fat soluble antioxidant. Fat soluble antioxidants help to prevent harmful substances, called free radicals, from attacking and damaging the cell membrane.
This exceptional product contains Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol). Vitamin E is actually a family of eight antioxidants, four tocopherols (alpha, beta, gamma, and delta), and four tocotrienols (also alpha, beta, gamma, and delta). The Alpha-tocopherol is the form of Vitamin E that appears to have the greatest antioxidant potential, and is also the only form that meets the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for Vitamin E. The mixed natural tocopherols beta, gamma and delta are also added for balance.
This formulation also contains Selenium. Because of recent farming methods, and soil pollution, Selenium is a mineral that has become increasingly more difficult to find naturally in foods. Selenium is an antioxidant which has recently received much interest for its reported role in contributing to a healthy immune system and its synergistic relationship with Vitamin E.
