Non-Synthetic All Natural Vitamin E!
NOW Vitamin E is a mixed Tocopherols: Vitamin E is actually made up of 8 components known as Tocopherols and Tocotrienols, referred to individually as Delta,Gamma, Beta, and Alpha. This means that a mixed product is more “complete’ and therefore provides more benefits. In general, Vitamin E is well known as a key antioxidant vitamin and is very important in protecting the cells of the body from damage caused by free radicals.
It is important to note that our Vitamin E is natural, NOW does not sell synthetic Vitamin E (indicated by the dl-alpha prefix). Our Vitamin E comes in d-alpha form; this indicates its 100% natural. In fact, NOW is the first company to market an all- natural, unesterified, non-GMO Vitamin E that includes every member, there are eight, of the compounds that make up Vitamin E. This blend is called Tru-E BioComplex.
What kind of vegetable oil is in your Vitamin E softgels?
We use soy bean oil in our Vitamin E formulas. For those that would prefer to take a Vitamin E from a different source, you can use our soy-free Dry E-400 capsules or powder.
What's the difference between all these Tocopherols?
There are 8 compounds that make up Vitamin E: alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherol; and alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta tocotrienols. Each of these compounds from the two groups has different benefits. Research indicates that d-alpha-tocopherol, the most common version of Vitamin E, in fact has the highest bioavailability of any of the 8 compounds. Inclusion of more than just d-alpha means a more complete E product with additional effectiveness.
What is the difference between Unesterfied Vitamin E and just regular Vitamin E?
Unesterified E is the active tocopherol, the preferred version of E and NOW E's are in this form. Regular E is typically combined with acetic acid or sometimes succinic acid.
Does this Vitamin E-400 IU - Mixed Tocopherols/Unesterified contain SOY?
Yes - any 100%-natural Vitamin E comes from a combination of vegetable oils, which includes soy. Even if you have a soy intolerance, you can still use natural Vitamin E, unless soybean oil has been added to the formula as the foundational ingredient.
The FDA has issued a statement regarding Vitamin E: "Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.”
