The Vitamin E Market

Vitamin E is the term used to describe 8 naturally occurring, essential, fat-soluble nutrients: aplha-, beta-, delta- and gamma-tocopherols plus a class of compounds related to vitamin E called alpha-, beta-, delta- and gamma-tocotrienols.

Vitamin E is an oil-soluble antioxidant that protects fatty acid (especially biological membranes where vitamin E is incorporated).

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects LDL from oxidative damage and prevents heart disease. Indeed, a 77% drop in nonfatal heart attacks was reported in the double blind CHAOS (Cambridge Heart AntiOxydant Study) in which people were gien 400-800 IU vitamin E per day.
