This Vitamin E Supplement is a powerful antioxidant essential to combat cell damage caused by free radicals. ProHealth's natural Vitamin E with Mixed Tocopherols contains all four members of the tocopherol family of compounds, making it more nutritionally complete. This natural form of vitamin E is the most powerful and effective form of this antioxidant because it is the easiest form for your body to absorb.
Antioxidants contained in ProHealth's Vitamin E Supplement work to protect your body's cells against the effects of free radical damage. Free radicals are the potentially harmful by-products of the body’s metabolism that can affect cells. ProHealth's Vitamin E Supplement is a powerful free radical scavenger that can neutralize free radicals before they become dangerous. Each of the tocopherols in this formula has specific antioxidant activity. Alpha tocopherols, for example, inhibit production of free radicals while gamma tocopherols trap and neutralize existing free radicals.
Tocopherols optimize vitamin E's antioxidant activity to provide you with the most potent and effective form of this essential vitamin. The antioxidant in this Vitamin E Supplemet- vitamin E- plays an important role protecting cell membranes and other fat soluble parts of the body by neutralizing free radicals. It is also helpful in monitoring and promoting a healthy heart. Your body needs two forms of vitamin E: tocopherol and tocotrienol.
There are many vitamin E supplements on the market that combine the two, but when taken together the tocopherol blocks tocotrienol absorption, making it completely ineffective. For maximum benefit, you should take tocopherol in the morning with breakfast and tocotrienol with your evening meal.
Individuals at risk of prolonged bleeding should be cautious when taking anticoagulant medications with Vitamin E, due to its capacity to decrease blood clotting and prolong bleeding time.
