What is vitamin E and what are the functions of vitamin E?
Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin, is an essential nutrient that provides antioxidant support to the cells in our bodies. Vitamin E helps neutralize free radicals that cause oxidative damage to healthy cells. Vitamin E also helps maintain the integrity of cell membranes in our bodies and protect LDL cholesterol from oxidation.†
What are the differences between the forms of vitamin E?
Vitamin E is a broad term used to describe a group of eight antioxidants: four tocopherols (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-) and four tocotrienols (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-). The form found most commonly in the body, and has the greatest nutritional importance – is alpha-tocopherol.
There are two types of alpha tocopherol – dl-alpha-tocopherol and d-alpha tocopherol. Dl- alpha tocopherol, the synthetic form, can be found in nutritional supplements and fortified foods.
What are some food sources of vitamin E?
Major sources of alpha-tocopherol include vegetable oils (olive, safflower and sunflower oils), nuts, and seeds, which can be calorically dense. Leafy greens and whole grains are also good sources of alpha-tocopherol. Many Americans (93%) fail to obtain the recommended daily amount of vitamin E through dietary intake. A vitamin E supplement may be a good option to help individuals fulfill this nutrient gap in their diet.
