Vitamin E With Yeast-Free Selenium by Solgar
is an antioxidant that protects cell membranes and other fat-soluble parts of the body, such as low-density lipoprotein (LDL; “bad” cholesterol) cholesterol, from damage. The names of all types of vitamin E begin with either “d” or “dl,” which refer to differences in chemical structure. The “d” form is natural (also known as RRR-alpha tocopherol) and “dl” is synthetic (more correctly known as all-rac-alpha tocopherol). The natural form is more active and better absorbed. Little is known about how the “unnatural” “l” portion of the synthetic “dl” form affects the body, though no clear toxicity has been discovered.
is an essential trace mineral and is required for the function of selenoproteins which include important antioxidant enzymes. Selenium has important antioxidant effects derived from its ability to reduce hydrogen peroxide and phospholipid hydroperoxides and thereby stop the production of free radicals and reactive forms of oxygen. It also reduces hydroperoxide intermediates thus lowering the production of inflammatory prostaglandins and leucotrienes. These effects are potentiated in the presence of vitamin E.
