Gamma E Tocopherol/Tocotrienols
60 softgels
Item Catalog Number:
00559

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.102-105

One or more members of the vitamin E family may:

  • Maintain cell membrane integrity and reduce cellular aging107-109
  • Act as a free radical scavenger110-114
  • Maintain healthy platelet aggregation115-118
  • Promote a healthy nervous system and retina of the eye119-122
  • Maintain healthy cognitive function123-128
  • Enhance immune function129-133

According to a University of California study, alpha tocopherol (regular vitamin E) displaces critically important gamma tocopherol in the body. While alpha tocopherol inhibits free radical production, gamma tocopherol is required to trap and neutralize existing free radicals.134

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.135,136

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.137

Tocotrienols have shown superior action in maintaining arterial health.143-146 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.147 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.148

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.150-153

      I ran out of Gamma Vitamin E & tocotrienols.
      Hair began falling out noticibly on Alpha Vit E.
      It stopped falling out within a FEW days after starting this combination of Vit E/tocotrienols.
      Other antioxidant advantages for the heart & blood vessals not to be overlooked.
