E is a Powerful Antioxidant
Vitamin E refers to a group of fat soluble compounds with strong antioxidant properties. An antioxidant is a substance that reduces oxidative damage, damage caused by oxygen which can harm human tissue, cells and organs.
Should You Get Your Vitamin E from Food or Supplements?
Our bodies do not manufacture Vitamin E. Therefore, we have to get Vitamin E from food or supplements. Because Vitamin E is fat-soluble, it is generally found in fat-rich foods. Some of the best food sources of Vitamin E include nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils. But can we get enough Vitamin E from our food without ingesting thousands of fat calories? Probably not. Additionally, some nutritionists believe it is difficult for an individual to consume more than 15 mg/day of alpha-tocopherol from food alone. Therefore supplementation is recommended.
Pure, Natural Vitamin E vs. Cheap Synthetics
Natural Vitamin E is the single molecular configuration that occurs in nature. Synthetic Vitamin E is a mixture of 8 molecular configurations, 7 of which occur when made by man.
The Vitamin E most often referred to and sold in stores is a synthetic form of Vitamin E called dl-alpha-tocopherol.
Most store brands of Vitamin E are made synthetically because it's less than half the cost to produce. We use only natural Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol acetate) because it's much more preferable than the synthetic form (dl-tocopherol). Natural Vitamin E is better utilized by the body in some of its metabolic actions and in the promotion of normal growth and fertility. Additionally, natural Vitamin E is absorbed by the body twice as well as synthetic Vitamin E.
Synthetic Vitamin E Provides Only 1/2 the Value to Your Body as Natural Vitamin E
Read the label—it's the only way to tell if you are getting natural or synthetic Vitamin E. Natural will say "d-alpha tocopherol," and synthetic will say "dl-alpha-tocopherol."
