Vitacost Natural Gamma E Tocopherol Complex -- 200 IU - 60 Softgels

Powerful antioxidant protection! What is Vitacost Gamma E Tocopherol Complex? Vitacost Gamma E Tocopherol Complex contains a combination of compounds belonging to the vitamin E family. Vitamin E is not one molecule but a family of eight related compounds known as tocopherols and tocotrienols—each with its own unique biological activities. The tocopherol and tocotrienol subfamilies are each composed of alpha beta gamma and delta fractions. .  . Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that stops the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) formed when fat undergoes oxidation. Scientists are investigating whether by limiting free-radical production and possibly through other mechanisms vitamin E might help delay undesirable health consequences related to free radicals.*.  . Gamma tocopherol has been shown to have powerful antioxidant properties. In particular it works to scavenge some of the most damaging free radicals such as nitrogen dioxide (a major constituent of vehicle exhaust and cigarette smoke) and peroxynitrate (formed through regular cellular metabolism).*.  . How does Vitacost Gamma E Tocopherol Complex support health? Supports a healthy immune system.*. Supports healthy DNA and gene expression.*. Helps to maintain healthy platelet function.*. Supports healthy prostate function.*. May protect the cardiovascular system.*. In combination with vitamin C provides added antioxidant protection.*. Why choose Vitacost Gamma E Tocopherol Complex? Provides 200 IU of vitamin E as d-alpha tocopherol and mixed natural tocopherols. Each bottle contains 60 two-softgel servings. About Vitacost.

How much E is good?
 November 11, 2013
"I can't find any good scientific evidence that mega dose E is beneficial. So finding a low dose of 200 mg with a mixture of different types (alpha, beta, gamma, delta), that mimics how vitamin E is found in nature, is good. I take this once / week. Too much of anything is no good - it upsets the natural balance in the body, between oxidants, and anti-oxidants."

not hard to swallow
 January 15, 2013
"This pill is not hard to swallow as another reviewer has said. It is a gelcap like most vitamin E is. If you put three of these side by side in your palm, it would be about equal to the size of a large fish oil gel cap. So at only 1/3 the size of a fish oil gelcap, the average person will have no trouble with these. Without much taste, they can also be opened (just bite the end with your teeth) and squirted in your mouth or in your smoothie if you really have a hard time. This supplement is also a very effective complex, great for your blood, especially for regulating your platelet count. I take it faithfully every day."

Tocopherols
 September 28, 2011
"This is a good product with an excellent quality.
There is no oil and it contains all tocopherols.
That would be better with some tocotrienols, but this complex is one of the best on the market."

Effective product!
 May 6, 2009
"I recently (about 8 months ago) began taking Vitamin E again ~ specifically, this brand/type. I had stopped for a year or so. Big mistake! I believe that this particular Vitamin Tocopherol Complex is effective (in conjunction with other vitamins) in boosting overall wellness. I will continue to take this!"

Difficult to Swallow
 April 3, 2009
"This product seems to be of reasonable quality and efficacy, although I don't necessarily feel different for having taken it. My big complaint is that the shape of this softgel is difficult to swallow. I take some pretty good sized supplements and have no trouble with them, but this one is actually painful to swallow and often gets stuck at the back of my throat. I won't be buying it again because of that."
