Nutri E-400™ Forte by Douglas Laboratories® contains 400 I.U. of 100% natural, unesterified vitamin E (dalpha-tocopherol), as well as a guaranteed minimum of the d-beta, d-gamma and d-delta tocopherols, which is unique among most mixed tocopherol products available. No synthetic vitamin E is used. Vitamin E is the collective term including four fat-soluble, natural compounds with similar chemical structure; alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocopherol. Of these, alpha-tocopherol has the highest nutritional activity. Numerous studies have shown gamma-tocopherol to have excellent antioxidant abilities that complements the antioxidant ability of alpha-tocopherol. Vitamin E is one of the body’s most important antioxidant nutrients. Antioxidants protect healthy cells from oxidative and free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable chemicals formed in the body during metabolism and from exposure to environmental sources. Free radicals are necessary for energy metabolism and immune function, but when an excessive number of free radicals are formed, they can attack healthy cells, especially cell membrane lipids and proteins. Vitamin E is an especially valuable antioxidant in the cell membranes, where it prevents oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids by trapping free radicals. This helps stabilize and protect cell membranes, especially red blood cells and tissues sensitive to oxidation, such as the lungs, eyes, and arteries. † Vitamin E also supports the liver and other physiological processes. † Related to its antioxidant properties, vitamin E is important for normal immune function, and many studies show that it prevents lipid peroxidation of blood lipoproteins, such as LDL-cholesterol.
