Table of contents
Vitamin E 400IU by EssentialSeries is a food supplement in softgels of oily content made based on D-alpha-tocopherol, a natural form of vitamin E.
D-alpha-tocopherol is the bioavailable alpha form of oral fat-soluble natural vitamin E (NCIt, s.f.)
The natural vitamin E 400IU product comes in an oil medium, because as a fat-soluble vitamin it's best to combine it with a small amount of oil (Reboul, 2017).
Natural vitamin E is a fat-soluble and nutritionally indispensable vitamin – as our body can't synthesise it by itself, it must be provided through the diet.
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells (their DNA, proteins and lipids) from oxidative stress.
The vitamin E we can find in nature comes in eight different chemical forms, which are used in the production of products based on vitamins and minerals:
- Alfa-, Beta-, Gamma, and Delta-Tocoferol.
- Alfa-, Beta-, Gamma, and Delta-Tocotrienol.
These have different biological activities.
Alpha-tocopherol is the only way that has been recognised as valid to meet the requirements in humans (Traber et al., 2006).
Companies tend to market products with other isoforms, or tocotrienol, under the claim of “vitamin E”, as they are cheaper products to produce and develop.
The viability of using these vitamins is questionable as any natural form of vitamin E is expressed in equivalents converted to natural alpha-tocopherol.
At HSN we bring you a 100% D-Alpha-Tocopherol product, the approved bioactive form of natural vitamin E to meet your daily requirements.
Our vitamin E has been diluted in an oil medium.
We've used this method because vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin.
For this reason, many authors have established the recommendation to consume friendly fat-solublevitamins together with a source of fats to increase their bioavailability (Reboul, 2017).
Each softgel of natural Vitamin E provides 400IU, the equivalent of 266.66mg.
A high concentration which covers the vitamin E nutrient reference values that establish the recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals, among others.
The softgels have been made with a high viscosity hydrophilic polymer, gelatin.
This means that when the softgels come into contact with water, their polar ends associate with this medium, altering their isoelectric point and facilitating their swallowing.
Each softgel has a size of only 14.5 x 8.5mm.
These small dimensions make the use of this supplement simple, even for those who find it difficult to take pills and tablets.
