New Roots Herbal’s Vitamin E8 contains all eight forms of vitamin E—four tocopherols and four tocotrienols—with squalenes, beta-sitosterols, all non-GMO certified.
Vitamin E is one of the great fat-soluble antioxidants; it is able to go where ordinary water-soluble antioxidants cannot. Vitamin E helps stop oxygen in red blood cells from turning into harmful peroxides. As well, it protects other vitamins from oxidation in the digestive tract.
Most vitamin E products contain only d-alpha-tocopherol, and often the synthetic form; there is much more to vitamin E than d-alpha-tocopherol—there are eight compounds that make up the vitamin E family. Our food contains all eight compounds, and this is the form our bodies have been processing since the beginning of our time.
New Roots Herbal’s Vitamin E8 contains all eight members of the vitamin E family—four tocopherols and four tocotrienols—, extracted from vegetable oils that are present in their natural, fully active, unesterified form. The eight members of the vitamin E family have some functions that are similar, and other functions that are completely different. For example, gamma-tocopherol has a greater ability to detoxify nitrogen radicals that are associated with neurological disease, inflammation, and prostate cancer.
