Gamma E Mixed Tocopherols & Tocotrienols is an all-natural, oral formula that provides a full spectrum vitamin E for potent antioxidant protection. The term "vitamin E" refers to a family of eight related, lipid-soluble, antioxidant compounds widely present in plants. The tocopherol and tocotrienol subfamilies are each composed of alpha, beta, gamma, and delta fractions having unique biological effects. Gamma E Mixed Tocopherols & Tocotrienols contains the complete spectrum of all eight vitamin E tocopherol and tocotrienol forms.

  • Full spectrum vitamin E
  • Potent antioxidant protection
  • Provides both members of the vitamin E family — tocopherols and tocotrienols
  • Provides the optimal amount and ratio of alpha, beta, gamma, and delta sub-families
  • Vitamin E is a Family of Antioxidant Compounds

The term "vitamin E" refers to a family of eight related, lipid-soluble, antioxidant compounds widely present in plants. The tocopherol and tocotrienol subfamilies are each composed of alpha, beta, gamma, and delta fractions having unique biological effects.

Different ratios of these compounds are found in different parts of a plant. For example, the green parts of a plant contain mostly alpha tocopherol and the seed germ and bran contain mostly tocotrienols.

Along with other nutrients, tocopherols and tocotrienols are concentrated in the bran layers of the rye grain, and are only present at low levels in the flour endosperm. Tocopherols are also present in algae, mint teas, and other foods.

Vitamin E Provides Potent Antioxidant Benefits

As a family of antioxidant compounds, vitamin E is one of the most researched and most important nutrients to consume daily. One or more members of the vitamin E family may:

  • Maintain cell membrane integrity and reduce cellular ageing
  • Act as a free radical scavenger
  • Maintain healthy platelet aggregation
  • Promote a healthy nervous system and retina of the eye
  • Maintain healthy cognitive function
  • Enhance immune function

Gamma Tocopherol is Critically Important

Prestigious scientific journals have highlighted gamma tocopherol as one of the most critically important forms of vitamin E for those seeking optimal health benefits. In fact, studies show the combination of alpha- and gamma-tocopherol supplementation appears to be superior to either supplementation alone on biomarkers of oxidative stress and on inflammatory factors.

Most commercial vitamin E supplements contain little, if any, gamma tocopherol. They instead rely on alpha tocopherol as the primary ingredient. However, it is gamma tocopherol (not the alpha form) that quenches peroxynitrite, the free radical that plays a major role in the development of age-related decline.

Tocotrienols Support Arteries and Nerves

Tocotrienols have shown superior action in maintaining arterial health. In 2010, a team of Asian scientists demonstrated that this class of nutrients, which are difficult to obtain in sufficient quantities through dietary sources alone, may provide superior support in maintaining triglyceride levels already within healthy range in aging individuals.

Just 120 mg per day of gamma-delta tocotrienols (provided in 3-4 softgels) induced a 28% decline in triglyceride levels in the blood after just one month. This wonder nutrient is so effective because of its structure of double bonds in the isoprenoid side chain, making it a great scavenger of free radicals.

Research has shown that tocotrienols display potent neuroprotective properties and in particular alpha-tocotrienol is being touted as the most potent neuroprotective form of vitamin E.
