Info on Vitamin E

Since its discovery, Vitamin E has gained the interest of scientists and health professionals world-wide. It was originally found that an absence of Vitamin E caused animals to become sterile. Further research has shown a deficiency of Vitamin E in some animals may also result in muscular dystrophy, certain heart problems and other ailments. The most extensive clinical work with Vitamin E was done by Doctors Evan and Wilfrid Shute of Canada, beginning in the 1940's.

Vitamin E for Your Good Health

  • helps maintain the good health of our body tissues
  • protects cell membranes
  • enables the body to utilize other nutrients
  • protects body cells from damage by excess free radicals
  • necessary for the proper functioning of the immune system

Because this essential nutrient cannot be manufactured by the body, many knowledgeable individuals are choosing a Vitamin E nutritional supplement.

All-Natural Vitamin E

Carlson Vitamin E can be used with confidence. All Carlson Vitamin E formulas are Independently Assayed to Guarantee 100% Potency, 100% Natural-Source Vitamin E.

Carlson All-Natural Vitamin E is derived from soybean oil, a food source. Synthetic Vitamin E is not derived from a food source, but is produced from turpentine or petroleum products.

Published studies of scientists and nutritionists confirm the differences among the types of Vitamin E. It is now universally recognized that Natural Vitamin E is considerably more active biologically than Synthetic Vitamin E. Research shows that Natural Vitamin E is: ABSORBED BETTER, and RETAINED IN THE BODY LONGER.

How to Recognize Natural Vitamin E

Alpha Tocopherol (or Alpha Tocopheryl) is the recognized term for Vitamin E.

Acetate and Succinate are important organic molecules within our bodies involved in numerous biochemical reactions. For example, acetate is an important part of acetylcholine, the neural transmitter required by every nerve cell in our bodies to transmit impulses. Moreover, acetate and succinate are found in energy producing reactions in every cell. Acetate is another name for pure vinegar, and succinate is two acetic acid molecules attached together.

Don't be Fooled By "Part-Natural" Vitamin E

Unfortunately, some brands of Vitamin E are mislabeled. Some products claim to contain Natural Vitamin E when, in fact, they only contain 5% to 25% Natural Vitamin E blended with Synthetic Vitamin E.

The presence of Natural Vitamin E can only be guaranteed by an Independent Assay (Test) of each batch. As your assurance that Carlson products contain only 100% Natural-Source Vitamin E, the statement above appears on all vitamin E labels.
