Life Extension Gamma E Tocopherol/Tocotrienol
Life Extension Gamma E Tocopherol/Tocotrienol provides the superior gamma form of Vitamin E with plays a major role in age-related decline.
Prestigious scientific journals have highlighted gamma tocopherol, as supplied by Life Extension Gamma E Tocopherol/Tocotrienol,as one of the most critically important forms of vitamin E for those seeking optimal health benefits.
Most commercial vitamin E supplements contain little, if any, gamma tocopherol. They instead rely on alpha tocopherol as the primary ingredient. However, it is gamma tocopherol (not the alpha form) that quenches peroxynitrite, the free radical that plays a major role in the development of age-related decline.
Tocotrienols have shown superior action in maintaining arterial health. In 2010, a team of scientists demonstrated that this class of nutrients, which are difficult to obtain in sufficient quantities through dietary sources alone, may provide superior support in maintaining triglyceride levels already within healthy range in aging individuals. Just 120 mg per day of gamma-delta tocotrienols (provided in 3-4 softgels) induced a 28% decline in triglyceride levels in the blood after just one month. This wonder nutrient is so effective because of its structure of double bonds in the isoprenoid side chain, making it a great scavenger of free radicals.
