Multi-E 400 Natural capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their daily intake of vitamin E in its potent, natural form.
Vitamin E is one of the body's most important antioxidant nutrients. Antioxidants protect healthy cells from oxidative and free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable chemicals formed in the body during metabolism and from exposure to environmental sources, such as air pollution and cigarette smoke. Free radicals are necessary for energy metabolism and immune function, but when an excessive number of free radicals are formed, they can attack healthy cells, especially their membrane lipids, proteins, and nucleic acid. This, in turn, is thought to degrade the structure and function of healthy cellular components.
Vitamin E is the collective term for those eight compounds that have varying levels of vitamin E biological activity. These eight fat soluble compounds include the alpha, beta, gamma, and delta forms of tocopherol and tocotrienol. While the d-alpha isomer is the most well-known form of vitamin E, recent scientific evidence indicates that gamma, beta and delta tocopherols may possess unique, distinguishable features. Numerous studies have shown gamma-tocopherol to have excellent antioxidant abilities that complements the antioxidant ability of alpha-tocopherol.Ingredients:
