    NOW Foods Vitamin E-400 IU D-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate 400 IU - 100 Softgels

    Now Foods Vitamin E-400 IU D-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate is genuine Vitamin E. Now Foods does not carry any synthetic Vitamin E, which is indicated by the dl-alpha prefix (as in dl-alpha-Tocopheryl acetate). All of Now Foods Vitamin E is the all-natural d-alpha form. Now Foods is also the first company in the world to offer a 100% natural, unesterified, Identity Preserved non-GMO Vitamin E containing all 8 members of the Vitamin E family in a more appropriately balanced formula called Tru-E BioComplex. The vegetable oil used in our Vitamin E products is soybean oil. For those persons allergic to soy or soy products, try Now Dry E-400 capsules or powder. From the FDA's website: "Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive."

    What's the difference between Alpha and Gamma and Tocopherol?
    In order to answer the question correctly we need to review what Vitamin E is. Vitamin E is a family of essential fat-soluble nutrients that act as powerful antioxidants. In nature there are 8 substances that have been found to have vitamin E activity: alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherol; and alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta tocotrienols. The four different isomers from both the tocopherol and tocotrienol groups all have different biological activities and therapeutic benefits.According to research d-alpha-tocopherol has the highest bioavailability and is the standard against which all the others must be compared. Human blood and tissue contains much more alpha-tocopherol than gamma-tocopherol even though gamma-tocopherol is the predominant form of vitamin E in our diet. It's suggested that the liver metabolizes both alpha and gamma forms but uses a special protein called alpha-tocopherol transfer protein to preferentially place more alpha than any other tocopherol into the VLDL and eventually the LDL cholesterol carries it through the bloodstream to the tissues. The liver metabolizes gamma-tocopherol to 2,7,8-trimethyl-2- (beta-carboxyethyl)-6-hydroxychromin (gamma-CEHC) which is absorbed in some tissues, sent back to the intestines via the bile and mostly excreted in the urine. Some research indicates that the active CEHC metabolite may have natriuretic activity and play a role in determining how much fluid and electrolytes may pass through the kidneys thereby influencing many important physiologic activities in the body.

    Which NOW Vitamin E product should I take for a good blend of mixed tocopherols? Which is better for gamma tocopherols?
    Your best bet for a good blend of mixed tocopherols in a softgel form is NOW Vitamin E with 20% Mixed Tocopherols. NOW also carries a liquid supplement that contains 80% mixed tocopherols, which contains the best overall mix of tocopherols. These two formulas will also supply the greatest amount of gamma tocopherols.

    What is the difference between Unesterfied Vitamin E and just regular Vitamin E?
    Vitamin E (tocopherol) can be chemically combined with acetic acid or succinic acid to form a new more stable compound called an esterified E; Tocopheryl Acetate for example. This is more stable but needs to be uncombined by the body to release the active E portion: tocopherol. When you purchase unesterified E it is still uncombined and is the active tocopherol. Most nutritionists prefer this. Most of NOW E's are this form. Look for the word tocopherol instead of tocopheryl.

    NOW's Mission
    The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

    In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

    History of NOW
    In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed – NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.
