Natural d-Alpha Tocopheryl
Vitamin E is a major antioxidant and the primary defense against lipid peroxidation. It is particularly important in protecting the body's cells from free radical/oxidative damage. These protective benefits are achievable with supplemental intakes higher than what is normally consumed in the average diet.
- Powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger.
- Beneficial to cellular respiration in muscles.
- Aids in circulation and healthy cardiovascular system.
- May play a role in protein metabolism.
- Promotes healthy hair and skin.
- Supports the prevention of cataracts.
- Protects cell membranes.
Our Vitamin E is all natural d-alpha tocopheryl. No cheap synthetic alpha-tocopherol is used.
Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin, is stored in adipose tissue, liver, and muscle. It is also stored in the adrenal and pituitary glands, red blood cells and platelets, testes, and ovaries. Vitamin E is unstable to heat, light, and oxygen.
Vitamin E plays an important role in protecting the body tissues from damaging reactions caused by free-radicals, which arise from many normal metabolic functions. Free-radicals are molecules that are energized at the loss of an electron. They become energetic and unstable and will react with any other molecule to acquire another electron. Free-radicals are responsible for many types of cancer, DNA damage, and blood clots. Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant and it helps prolong the life of red blood cells, it plays an essential role in cellular respiration. It protects biological membranes such as those found in the nerves, muscles, and cardiovascular system. It helps the body effectively use and store vitamin A and protects B-complex and vitamin C from oxidation reactions.
Natural versus Synthetic Vitamin E:
Alpha tocopherol is the scientific name for the form of vitamin E that our bodies use. There are a variety of types of vitamin E such as beta, gamma, and delta tocopherols (often called "mixed" tocopherols) which exist in nature along with alpha tocopherol. Vitamin E comes in either a D or L form. The form that exists in our food and the form that our bodies need is the D form: D-alpha tocopherol. The L form does not work in our bodies.
Synthetic vitamin E is not the same as natural vitamin E and has lower biological activity. When vitamin E is made synthetically a mixture of the D and L forms is automatically produced and cannot be separated. This is called DL-alpha tocopherol and, although much less expensive than natural D-alpha tocopherol, is not biologically active. In fact, recent scientific studies have indicated that synthetic vitamin E does not stay in the body nearly as long as natural vitamin E, making it a much less effective protector.
Vitamin E in its raw state (D-alpha tocopherol) is in oil form. If it is put into tablets or hard gelatin capsules it must be esterified. That means that a natural carrier must be added, such as acetate or succinate. These esterified forms are written as D-alpha tocopheryl acetate or D-alpha tocopheryl succinate. Since the carrier breaks down when ingested, esterified vitamin E is still considered natural as long as the D is present versus the DL.
Researchers Report How Vitamin E May Fight Prostate Cancer
Researchers from the University of Rochester reported they may know how vitamin E may benefit prostate cancer in a study that appears in the May 28 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (99, 11:7408-13....

Truthful and Clear Supplement Facts Panels - No BS Proprietary Blends:
A proprietary blend is a cheap gimmick used by manufacturers to hide the real truth about what's in their product. By listing a bunch of ingredients under one blend on the label, the manufacturer only has to tell you how much of the blend is in a serving while hiding how much of each ingredient is in a serving. They do this to protect their secret formula, that’s bull, they do it so they can cheapen their product without their customers knowing. In the industry we call this “Window Dressing” the product the label looks good on the outside but there is nothing really happening on the inside. At NutraBio our Supplement Facts panels list the exact amount of each and every active ingredient in the supplement. No guessing, you know exactly what you are getting in every product we sell.
