The term ‘vitamin E’ stands for a family of 8 related lipid-soluble antioxidant compounds found in a large number of plants and plant extracts. The tocopherol and tocotrienol subfamilies of vitamin E are each made up of alpha, beta, gamma and delta forms with different unique biological effects on health.
Different proportions of these compounds are present in different parts of plants, also known as plant extracts. The green components of a plant for example generally contain mostly alfa-tocopherol, while the seed germ and bran contain mostly tocotrienols. Tocopherols are also present in algae, mint tea and other foods. It is well known that certain extracts of plants for health are extremely effective in treating a range of health conditions.
A study undertaken at the University of California indicates that alpha tocopherol (ordinary vitamin E) displaces the important gamma tocopherol in the body. Alpha tocopherol inhibits the production of free radicals, but gamma tocopherol scavenges and neutralises existing free radicals.
Prestigious scientific journals indicate that gamma-tocopherol is one of the most important forms of Vitamin E supplements for those seeking maximum health benefits. Studies show that a combination of alpha and gamma tocopherol appears to deliver more benefits than either substance alone as far as biomarkers of oxidative stress and inflammatory factors are concerned. Thus, it is an effective natural antioxidant and a natural anti-inflammatory.
Most commercially available Vitamin E supplements contain alfa-tocopherol as the main ingredient and little, if any, gamma-tocopherol. Yet it is gamma-tocopherol that scavenges the free radical peroxynitrite, which plays an important part in age-related decline. In short, this means that is also have natural anti-ageing properties.
Life Extension has discovered research which suggests that adding sesame lignans to gamma tocopherol may considerably enhance its beneficial effects. Sesame and its lignans have been shown to increase antioxidant activity in the tissues by raising the levels of the two antioxidants vitamins C and E. This makes it an extremely powerful natural antioxidant supplement.
A human study which combined gamma tocopherol with sesame lignans showed gamma tocopherol/sesame lignans to be 25% more effective than gamma tocopherol/tocotrienols in working as a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, even though tocotrienols are generally held to be nature´s most powerful antioxidants
