Benefits of Gamma E

  • Maintains cell membrane strength and health
  • Helps reduce cellular aging
  • Acts as an antioxidant to scavenge free radicals
  • Supports healthy platelet aggregation
  • Promotes nervous system health
  • Supports eye health
  • Enhances immune system
  • Helps maintain healthy cognitive function

Life Extension Gamma E Mixed Tocopherols and Tocotrienols supports the immune system, cognitive function, platelet aggregation, nervous system, and the retina of the eye. It also supports cell membrane integrity, reducing cellular aging and is a free radical scavenger.

The term vitamin E refers to a family of eight related, lipid-soluble, antioxidant compounds widely present in plants.1 The tocopherol and tocotrienol subfamilies are each composed of alpha, beta, gamma, and delta fractions having unique biological effects. Different ratios of these compounds are found in different parts of a plant. For example, the green parts of a plant contain mostly alpha tocopherol and the seed germ and bran contain mostly tocotrienols. Along with other nutrients, tocopherols and tocotrienols are concentrated in the bran layers of the rye grain, and are only present at low levels in the flour endosperm. Tocopherols are also present in algae, mint teas, and other foods.88-91

According to a University of California study, alpha tocopherol (regular vitamin E) displaces critically important gamma tocopherol in the body. While alpha tocopherol inhibits free radical production, gamma tocopherol is required to trap and neutralize existing free radicals.92-100

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.101

Tocotrienols have shown superior action in maintaining arterial health.102-109 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.110-112

Research has shown that tocotrienols display potent neuroprotective properties and in particular alpha-tocotrienol is being touted as the most potent neuroprotective form of vitamin E.113-119
