Our Vitamin E Complex is a blend of natural tocopherols, including 80% d-alpha and 20% mixed tocopherols. Vitamin E, a powerful chain-breaking antioxidant, plays an important role in protecting heart health and provides protection for cellular membranes. Vitamin E has also been shown to support healthy blood vessel function, protein metabolism and hormone production. Many women find relief of premenstrual symptoms when taking additional vitamin E. Take with food for optimal absorption. Due to the increased risk of hemorrhage, use caution if combining vitamin E with anticoagulant therapy (blood thinners) or if you are vitamin K deficient. *

Description: Vitamin E refers to the plant-derived, lipid-soluble antioxidants: tocopherols and tocotrienols that are responsible for the termination of lipid peroxidation [1]. Our Vitamin E Complex is a blend of natural tocopherols, including 80% d-alpha and 20% mixed tocopherols. Vitamin E biological activity is different from its antioxidant activity; there is a preference for a-tocopherol, as evidenced by selective degradation and excretion of other vitamin E forms and selective retention of a-tocopherol, mediated by the hepatic a-tocopherol transfer protein (a-TTP) [1]. Vitamin E, a powerful chain-breaking antioxidant, plays an important role in cell maintenance by protecting polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and other components of cell membranes and low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) from oxidation by free radicals. Vitamin E is located primarily within the phospholipid bilayer of cell membranes. Vitamin E has been shown to support healthy blood vessel function, protein metabolism and hormone production.

 

Uses: Vitamin E is the most important fat-soluble antioxidant, as it protects animals against a variety of different oxidative stressors. Currently, there is strong scientific evidence to support a link between vitamin E intake and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) through oxidation of unsaturated lipids in low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles that would otherwise contribute to the development of atherosclerotic plaque build up in arterial vessels [2]. These findings indicate that supplemental vitamin E may reduce the risk for heart disease by improving the condition of blood vessels. In fact, it has been reported that aspirin plus vitamin E is more effective than aspirin alone for protection from cardiovascular events.

 

Vitamin E supplementation also strengthens the immune system, which provides protection against diseases outside of the cardiovascular system [2]. Of the vitamin E isoforms, α-tocopherol, specifically, has been studied extensively in relation to cancer prevention and as a possible therapeutic agent. There are data that strongly indicate a preventative effect of vitamin E against carcinogenesis in breast, prostate and lung tissue [2,3].

 

Many women find relief from premenstrual/menstrual symptoms after supplementing vitamin E. Multiple randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials have confirmed a significant decrease in symptoms of primary dysmenorrhoea (cramping and blood loss) in response to vitamin E supplementation [4].

 

In addition, vitamin E plays a role in the condition of skin. Vitamin E can also absorb the energy from ultraviolet (UV) light and can therefore be considered a photoprotectant, preventing UV-induced free radical damage to skin. Vitamin E may also have related anti-inflammatory effects that are beneficial to skin and recovery from UV damage [5].
