Vitamin E actually refers to eight related nutrients, of which d-alpha tocopherol is the most common.
Tocopherol is a fancy name for Vitamin E and some of these related compounds. The addition of the mixed tocopherols helps increase bioavailability and boosts the formula's antioxidant activity.
The name 'tocopherol' comes from Greek. And the first tocopherol ever founds was assigned the chemical name alpha tocopherol.
As more were identified, they were given the next name in the Greek alphabet. So now, as well as alpha tocopherol, there are beta, gamma, delta, and epsilon tocopherols.
The alpha form, however, is the most common in your blood and tissue. But the advantage of mixed tocopherol supplements is that they provide greater antioxidant activity because of the presence of beta, delta and gamma tocopherols.
A potent fat-soluble antioxidant, vitamin E helps fight free radicals, which are highly reactive substances that are produced during normal metabolism, as well as from aging and exposure to such environmental factors as cigarette smoke, pollutants, and ultraviolet light.
It may also help your body avoid the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, cholesterol.
To use as a dietary supplement, you can take one easy-to-swallow softgel with a meal, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
