In nature, vitamin E is composed of eight subtypes: four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. They are designated as alpha, beta, gamma and delta for each type. Recent studies have found that gamma-tocopherol is the only form that has anti-inflammatory properties. This is vital since most studies find that cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and chronic disease are all inflammatory. Gamma-tocopherol also prevents platelets from sticking together; the same way aspirin prevents clots.
Antioxidants like vitamin E work to protect your body’s cells against the effects of free radical damage. Free radicals are potentially harmful by-products of the body’s metabolism that can affect cells. Each of the tocopherols has specific antioxidant activity. Alpha tocopherols, for example, inhibit production of free radicals while gamma tocopherols trap and neutralize existing free radicals.Metabolic Solutions Natural Vitamin E Mixed Tocopherols contains all four members of the tocopherol family of compounds, making it more nutritionally complete.
