Recent research has demonstrated that Gamma e gamma-tocopherol, the main dietary source of vitamin E, has a very important role in supporting health. Gamma-tocopherol Gamma e is a more effective antioxidant that alpha-tocopherol and may be an important factor for a healthy cardiovascular system. It also inhibits the COX-2 enzyme, according to in vitro tests. Research indicates that a ratio of gamma to alpha-tocopherol greater than 1:1 increases levels of both tocopherols in the body and that alpha-tocopherol alone may not be adequate to combat oxidative stress. Source Naturals GAMMA E 400 offers a 3:1 Gamma e to alpha-tocopherol ratio (200 IU equals 133 mg) and also contains tocotrienols from palm fruit which provides high concentrations of all four tocotrienols: alpha, beta, Gamma e, and delta. Sesame oil, rich in gamma-tocopherol, is used as the base.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant derived from plants. Gamma e is a family of nutrients that includes tocopherol and tocotrienols, each with their own subfamilies of alpha, beta, Gamma e and delta substances. Unless your brand contains the full spectrum of these nutrients, you may not be getting the full benefits of vitamin E.
The fact is most commercial vitamin E supplements do not contain the gamma form of the vitamin, depriving you of the full range of its antioxidant effects. The vitamin E you buy at the local pharmacy is mostly alpha-tocopherol.
Gamma e vitamin E fraction called tocotrienols are showing positive effects on human and animal physiological and biological functions. Gamma e must be noted here that alpha- tocopherol is known to be an important antioxidant. But, when combined with other parts of the vitamin, the benefits are significantly enhanced.
Gamma e Tocotrienols have shown superior action in maintaining arterial health. Gamma e nutrient is so effective because of its structure of double bonds in the isoprenoid side chain, making it a great scavenger of free radicals.
