Vitamin E refers to a group of eight compounds divided into two categories: tocopherols and tocotrienols. Each category is further divided up into alpha, beta, gamma, and delta types.

 Also known as: Tocopherols, Tocotrienols


  • Alpha-tocopherol is the form of vitamin E used in most supplements
  • Alpha-tocopherol not only does not reduce the risk of heart disease, but it may also even be harmful
  • Tocopherols inhibit the cholesterol-lowering ability of tocotrienols

We avoid Vitamin-E supplements containing tocopherols 


  • Delta- and gamma-tocotrienols can have beneficial effects on lipid markers
  • Tocotrienols can induce senescence, mitochondrial damage, and apoptosis in cancer cells but not in healthy cells
  • Gamma-tocotrienol can slow tumor growth and metastasis by blocking angiogenesis and cancer cell signaling
  • Tocotrienols can prevent radiation-induced aging changes in healthy cells
  • Tocotrienols can rejuvenate some senescent cells and delay senescence in healthy cells

We prefer Vitamin-E supplements containing only delta and gamma-tocotrienols
