Gamma E Tocopherol with Sesame Lignans
60 softgels
Item Catalog Number: 00759

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

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

Sesame Lignans: The Natural Vitamin E Booster

Life Extension has uncovered research suggesting that adding sesame lignans to gamma tocopherol may significantly enhance its beneficial effects.138-140 Sesame and its lignans have been shown to boost antioxidative activity in the tissues by elevating the levels of two antioxidative vitamins, vitamin C and E.141

In a human study that combined gamma tocopherol with sesame lignans, gamma tocopherol/sesame was 25% more effective than gamma tocopherol/tocotrienols in suppressing tissue measurements for free radical and inflammatory damage.142 Since tocotrienols are considered nature’s most potent antioxidants, the fact that low-cost gamma tocopherol with sesame is more effective is a remarkable finding.

Life Extension has fortified the popular Gamma E Tocopherol supplement with standardized sesame lignans. Consumers obtain superior benefits at a much lower cost. This formula provides potent doses of gamma tocopherol along with sesame lignan extract to augment the antioxidant effects of gamma tocopherol.

      Comments about Life Extension Gamma E Tocopherol with Sesame Lignans, 60 softgels:

      I appreciate the services that Life Extension provides. After reading about this product I believe it is a very important piece of the health puzzle and as such I take it. I do not "feel" a difference but in my estimation, vitamins for the most part, are for the long haul. There are many vitamins I take that do not provoke a "feeling" but I know they are beneficial in the long run. This is one of them.

            I take this product daily as part of my normal routine. This form of vitamin E is critical for protection from free radicals.(I do not take Life Extension's Booster, which has additional gamma e tocopherol.)

                About 4 years ago, I was told by my surgeon to take 800 mg of Vitamin E to reduce scar tissue from breast surgery. I did so regularly for 4 years, using another brand, and saw no results. About 6 months ago I switched to Life Extension's Gamma E and the results are amazing. The scar tissue has softened considerably.

                    given the scientific reseach I've reviewed this combination of tocopherols is likely the best especially with gama. However, I don't think it is needed every day if a user also keeps a healthy diet with foods rich in natural vit. E components such as what various nut species provide.

                          Comments about Life Extension Gamma E Tocopherol with Sesame Lignans, 60 softgels:

                          Gamma Tocopherol is the most important vitamin E for the body. Numerous human studies have proven beyond doubt that Gamma Tocopherol is vital for heart, prostate, brain and immune system health. Yet, the majority of vitamin E supplements (and all multi-vitamins) fail to provide us with beneficial levels of this vital form of vitamin E. And the addition of Sesame Lignans helps your body better utilize Gamma Tocopherol...as well as provide powerful antioxidant benefits. In my professional opinion, this is the best vitamin E supplement available. I sold this product in my vitamin stores, and had many customers report excellent results when using Gamma E Tocopherol with Sesame Lignans.
