Vitamin E

  • Counteract aging
  • Protects body from toxins
  • Safe blended tocopherols

The anti-aging properties of vitamin E have been demonstrated in laboratory studies where cells grown in media enriched with the vitamin lived longer than cells grown in media without the supplement.

Up to 80 percent of older adults fail to get the minimal DRI of 30 IU of vitamin E, and only a fraction of the 400 IU we recommend in Fantastic Voyage. Food sources of vitamin E include vegetable oils, whole grains, wheat germ, brown rice, eggs, nuts, and leafy green vegetables, but it is almost impossible to get the optimal dose from diet alone.

Vitamin E protects the body from various toxins such as mercury, lead, ozone, and nitrous oxide.1 It supports a healthy circulatory system and assists in maintaining normal cholesterol levels.2 The vitamin also assists in maintaining healthy immune system function.3

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant. Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.4

A recent study showed that people who took a specific subtype of vitamin E all by itself (alpha-tocopherol) may have a slightly increased (five percent) risk of death.5 This study was widely publicized and erroneously interpreted to mean that all vitamin E supplementation is unsafe. But, it is important to understand that alpha-tocopherol is not the same thing as vitamin E, as Vitamin E is really composed of multiple subfractions, including beta-, delta- and gamma- tocopherols as well. Gamma-tocopherol is the most common dietary form of vitamin E and is a critically important form of vitamin E in terms of antioxidant benefit. Yet taking alpha-tocopherol by itself decreases gamma-tocopherol levels. Therefore, when taking a vitamin E supplement, it is important to include all the subtypes (alpha-, beta-, delta- and gamma-tocopherol).
