Not the Natural Form of Vitamin E

      Comments about Nature Made Vitamin E, 400 IU, Softgels, 100 ea:

      You can get Vitamin E in synthetic form as dl-alpha tocopheryl. This is the cheapest and least effective form of vitamin E. The chemically produced dl-alpha-tocopher(y)l acetate or succinate, identified by the letter "l" after "d", was originally used as the industry standard for research. This was because it showed higher blood levels than the natural forms, alpha, beta, gamma and delta tocopherols, spelled with an "o" instead of a "y" to identify them as natural forms. Alpha-tocopherol can be derived from natural sources or can be synthetically produced. Natural-source alpha-tocopherol is a single stereoisomer and is also designated by the prefix "RRR." The synthetic form is a mixture of eight stereoisomers identified by the prefix "dl-" or "all-rac."

      Natural-source d-alpha-tocopherol (as opposed to dl) has been shown to have a higher biopotency than the dl-rac form. The currently accepted ratio is 1.36:1 (d:dl). A recent proposal has been made to the National Academy of Sciences to change this biopotency factor to 2:1 based on the results of more recent research studies. But some researchers challenge this idea believing it is based on incomplete conclusions extrapolated from the studies.1

      The fact that Vitamin E works at the mitochondrial rather than cellular level, and does not work at the blood level is proof that synthetic Vitamin E is an ineffective form. Furthermore, diabetics usually show high blood levels of Vitamin E because their heavily sclerosed circulatory system does not permit synthetic Vitamin E to reach the mitochondria level. Indeed, only natural form vitamin E has been discovered in brain tissue. Synthetic Vitamin E also causes side effects including heart palpitations even at relatively low dosage.

        Comments about Nature Made Vitamin E, 400 IU, Softgels, 100 ea:

        There are no direct results on which to base my opinion -- taking vitamins is something that must be done for a long time to see healthy results.

        I enjoyed Test Driving the Nature Made Vitamin E. The softgels are small and easy to swallow. Nature Made is also a brand I recognize and trust. I feel confident that it's made with quality ingredients. I'd readily recommend this product to others.

        Comments about Nature Made Vitamin E, 400 IU, Softgels, 100 ea:

        It was a pretty good product. It was very easy to swallow -- with or without water, it went down easily. It didn't smell funny, so that was good too. I felt it boosted my immune system as well. I'd definitely recommend this product to friends and family who might need a little extra vitamin E in their daily intake.

        I'd definitely recommend the Nature Made Vitamin E to my friends and family who already use vitamins, and to those who could use some advice on the subject. The Nature Made brand has a significant advantage -- PRICE! It's almost one dollar less than my usual brand. Great product!
