the early isolation of vitamin E from plant oils, the proposed term,
tocopherols, was used to name the initial four compounds that shared a
similar structure. These compounds were designated as alpha, beta,
delta and gamma tocopherols. Their structures have two primary parts, a
complex ring and a long saturated side chain. Tocopherols play an
important role as the major fat soluble antioxidants that protect our
bodies against free-radical damage. Of the four different forms, alpha
tocopherol is the most potent and has the greatest nutritional and
Vitamin E (alpha tocopherol) prevents saturated fatty acids and vitamin
A from breaking down and combining with other substances that may
become harmful to the body. Not surprisingly, fats and oils containing
vitamin E are less susceptible to rancidity than those devoid of
vitamin E. Solgar Vitamin E also has the ability to unite with oxygen
and prevent it from being converted into toxic peroxides. This leaves
the red blood cells more fully supplied with the pure oxygen that the
blood carries to the heart and other organs.
Vitamin E plays an essential role in cellular respiration of all
muscles, especially cardiac and skeletal. Vitamin E makes it possible
for these muscles and their nerves to function with less oxygen,
thereby increasing their endurance and stamina. It also causes dilation
of the blood vessels, permitting a fuller flow of blood to the heart.
Solgar Vitamin E also aids in bringing nourishment to the cells,
strengthening the capillary walls, and protecting the red blood cells
from destruction by poisons such as, hydrogen peroxide, in the blood.
