What is Vitamin E Complex (Mixed Tocopherols)?
Vitamin E refers to the plant-derived, fat-soluble antioxidants: tocopherols and tocotrienols that are responsible for the termination of lipid peroxidation. Our Vitamin E Complex is a blend of natural tocopherols, including 80% d-alpha and 20% mixed tocopherols. Vitamin E is located primarily within the phospholipid bilayer of cell membranes. As a powerful antioxidant, vitamin E plays an important role in cell maintenance by protecting polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), other components of cell membranes, and low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) from oxidation by free radicals.
How Does Vitamin E Complex (Mixed Tocopherols) Work?
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. These findings indicate that supplemental vitamin E may reduce the risk of 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 . Of the vitamin E isoforms, α-tocopherol, specifically, has been studied extensively in relation to its preventative effects and as a possible therapeutic agent. There are data that indicate a possible preventative effect of vitamin E against carcinogenesis in breast, prostate, and lung tissue.
Many women find relief from premenstrual/menstrual symptoms after supplementing vitamin E. Multiple randomized, 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.
In addition, vitamin E plays a role in the condition of the skin. Vitamin E can also absorb the energy from ultraviolet (UV) light and can, therefore, be considered a photo protectant, preventing UV-induced free radical damage to the skin. Vitamin E may also have related anti-inflammatory effects that are beneficial to the skin and recovery from UV damage.
