Vitamin E is a major antioxidant and the primary defense against lipid peroxidation. Selenium is an essential trace mineral that has been added as a synergist to complement Vitamin E.*

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."

    Additional Information


    Is your vitamin E a "natural vitamin E" or synthetic?

    We do not carry any synthetic Vitamin E, which is indicated by the “dl-alpha” prefix (as in “dl-alpha-Tocopheryl acetate). All of our Vitamin E is the all-natural “d-alpha” form.

    We are 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™.

    What type of vegetable oil is used in your Vitamin E softgels?

    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. This product is free of any soy ingredients.

    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 bioavailablity 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
