Capsules containing 80mg a-TE of mixed natural tocopherols (d-alpha,-beta, -gamma and -delta). Published evidence indicates that alpha tocopherol should always be used in combination with the other tocopherols.
Vitamin E is a universal antioxidant, and supports many redox systems in the body (Am J Clin Nutr 2001,74:714). It suppresses oxidative damage in the body (Pharmacists Letter 2000, 16:160. It also suppresses viruses and bacteria and is a general stimulant of the immune system (Int J Cancer, 2000, 86:276). It may be of value in the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease and other chronic diseases including macular degeration (Neurol India 1978, 26:171). It may also be of value in the management of Alzheimers disease (New Engl J Med 1997, 336:1216). Published evidence suggests that natural vitamanin E (d”) is twice as potent as synthetic vitamin E (“dl”). These studies also indicate that alpha tocopherol should always be used in combination with the other tocopherols.”

Persons with a known history of kidney stones should use vitamin E only under supervision of a health professional. Always consult your health professional if you are ill.
Vitamin E may reduce absorption of beta-carotene (Am J Clin Nutr 1983, 38:559). It also inhibits platelet aggregation and may therefore interact with anticoagulant drugs. It suppresses iron absorption in serverly anemic children (J Lab Clin Med 1969, 74:789). Increased intake of w-6 fatty acids increases requirements of vitamin E and vitamin K (J Oncol 2000, 18:415).
