Life Extension Gamma E Tocopherols/Tocotrienols are a full spectrum
Vitamin E. The term "vitamin E" refers to a family of eight related,
lipid-soluble, antioxidant compounds widely present in plants. The Life
Extension Gamma E Tocopherols/Tocotrienols subfamilies are each composed
of alpha, beta, gamma, and delta fractions having unique biological
effects. Different ratios of these compounds are found in different
parts of a plant. For example, the green parts of a plant contain mostly
alpha tocopherol and the seed germ and bran contain mostly
tocotrienols. Along with other nutrients, Life Extension Gamma E
Tocopherols/Tocotrienols are concentrated in the bran layers of the rye
grain, and are only present at low levels in the flour endosperm.
Tocopherols are also present in algae, mint teas, and other foods.
One or more members of theLife Extension Gamma E Tocopherols/Tocotrienols vitamin E family may:
- Maintain cell membrane integrity and reduce cellular aging
- Act as a free radical scavenger
- Maintain healthy platelet aggregation
- Promote a healthy nervous system and retina of the eye
- Maintain healthy cognitive function
- Enhance immune function
According to a University of California study, alpha tocopherol
(regular vitamin E) displaces critically important gamma tocopherol in
the body. While alpha tocopherol inhibits free radical production, gamma
tocopherol is required to trap and neutralize existing free radicals.
Tocotrienols have shown superior action in maintaining arterial health.
This wonder nutrient is so effective because of its structure of double
bonds in the isoprenoid side chain, making it a great scavenger of free
