PRODUCT IS A SYNERGISTIC MIXTURE OF
Vitamin E (as d-Alpha Tocopherol), d-Gamma Tocopherol, d-Delta Tocopherol, d-Beta Tocopherol, Tocotrienols
As the body's premier lipid-soluble antioxidant, Vitamin E functions to stabilize cell membranes and maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. This unique formula delivers high Gamma Tocopherol content, as well as a blend of other Tocopherols and Tocotrienols, for a more extensive range of antioxidant support.*
STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
Vitamin E is the most important lipid soluble antioxidant in the human body, where it is incorporated into the lipid phase of cell membranes and carrier molecules to stabilize these structures from free radicals produced by heavy metals, pollutants, drugs and radiation. By potentially minimizing lipid oxidation, Vitamin E helps maintain healthy stable blood vessels to support heart health. Vitamin E is actually a collective term for a group of compounds known as Tocopherols and Tocotrienols.
Alpha-Tocopherol is widely recognized as the best studied, most biologically active form, but recent evidence suggests Gamma-Tocopherol may possess distinguishing qualities in some studies. Gamma-Tocopherol appears to provide more antioxidant support against lipophilic electrophiles than Alpha-Tocopherol. In addition, Gamma Tocopherol modifies cyclooxygenase action to facilitate healthy immune activity.*
For your clients who wish to supplement their diets with Vitamin E, High Gamma Tocopherol delivers a blend of Tocopherols and Tocotrienols to provide a broad range of antioxidant activity. Vitamin E functions to stabilize cell membranes and maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.*
HOW CLIENTS MAY BENEFIT
Compounds known as Tocopherols and Tocotrienols are isomers of the essential nutrient known as Vitamin E. While Alpha Tocopherol exhibits the greatest Vitamin E activity, Gamma Tocopherol possesses distinguishing qualities that provide additional health benefits. Supplementing your clients' diets with PhysioLogics' High Gamma Tocopherol may promote their cardiovascular health, as well as provide them with a daily source of diverse Vitamin E antioxidants.*
For adults, take two (2) softgels daily, preferably with meals, or follow the advice of your healthcare professional. As a reminder, discuss the supplements and medications you take with your healthcare providers.
