100% natural source vitamin E is a key nutrient for heart health, immune support and nerve and muscle function. As a powerful antioxidant, vitamin E is an essential ally against pollution, aging, toxins and other causes of free radical damage. Selenium and vitamin C are added to this dry form of vitamin E for additional antioxidant power and manganese supports vitamin E action.
Vitamin E's ability to protect cell membranes makes it valuable for people in polluted environments and those with active lifestyles, as physical exertion increases production of free radicals. Approximately 400 IU of vitamin E reduces exercise-induced free radical damage and helps with athletic performance. Experts agree that obtaining adequate vitamin E from the daily diet is difficult and therefore recommend daily supplementation. Men and women who supplement with at least 100 IU of vitamin E per day have a 37-41% drop in the risk of heart disease. CHAOS (Cambridge Heart Antioxidant Study) reported a 77% drop in non-fatal heart attacks when people were given 400-800 IU of vitamin E per day.
D-alpha tocopheryl acetate, an ester of alpha tocopherol, is a very stable form of vitamin E and is equally effective in humans. Vitamin E works synergistically with selenium, another powerful antioxidant.
Selenium derived from yeast is much more readily absorbed and utilized by the human body than other forms of selenium. Although it is derived from yeast, no live yeast spores are present, therefore, it will not cause candida or other yeast infections or yeast overgrowth.
