Solgar Vitamin E 400iu (268mg) 50 Vegetarian Softgels provide a natural form of vitamin E, d-alpha tocopherol, to protect cells from oxidative stress and support the immune system.
Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) was first isolated from plant oils. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that may help reduce free radical damage and slow the ageing process of your cells.
The term tocopherol was used to name the initial four compounds that shared a similar structure: a complex ring and a long, saturated side chain. Tocopherols are the primary fat-soluble antioxidants that help minimise the effects of free radicals. Of the four compounds designated as alpha, beta, delta, and gamma tocopherols, alpha tocopherol has the greatest nutritional and biological value.
Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) may help: prevent polyunsaturated fatty acids from breaking down and combining with substances that may harm the body; maintain muscle and nerve function; bring nourishment to cells; strengthen capillary walls; protect red blood cells from being destroyed by poisons, such as hydrogen peroxide, in the blood; promote healthy immune function; and decrease platelet aggregation (thin blood). Solgar offers the natural "D" form of vitamin E (D-alpha tocopherol).
