There are eight different forms of vitamin E. The four tocopherols (alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherol) share a saturated phytyl side chain. The four analogous tocotrienols have a triple- unsaturated side chain. The unsaturated bonds on the side chain give the tocotrienols greater antioxidant activity and a different biologic action. When those bonds become saturated, the molecule becomes a tocopherol. Reports from laboratory studies indicate a 40-60 times higher antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation with d-alpha- tocotrienol than with d-alpha-tocopherol and 6.5 times more protection of cytochrome P-450 against oxidative damage. Cytochrome P-450 is present in most tissues and serves as an oxygenating catalyst in a variety of reactions. Other Ingredients: Gelatin (capsule), glycerin, and purified water. Recommendations: Take one softgel capsule once or twice daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Cautions: If you are pregnant or nursing consult your healthcare practitioner before use.
