Lamberts® Vitamin E capsules present vitamin E in its natural form of d-alpha-tocopherol, which is how it occurs in foodstuffs such as nuts and vegetable oils. It is in the form of d-alpha-tocopherol that vitamin E is easily absorbed. The vitamin E used in Lamberts® products is naturally sourced from vegetable oil.
Natural vitamin E (referred to as ‘d-alpha tocopherol’) has been shown scientifically to possess twice the potency of its synthetic counterpart (dl-alpha tocopherol) and has been hailed by many researchers as one of the most important dietary antioxidants known to man.
Vitamin E protects every cell in the body from free radicals through its antioxidant properties and this protective role has put vitamin E at the centre of worldwide research. Studies indicate that it may help maintain the health of the heart by protecting polyunsaturated fats in the body from being oxidised into saturated fats and so protect all membranes including those in the lungs and blood vessels. Vitamin E is also recommended during the menopause and to maintain a healthy skin and reproductive system.
Current research suggests that a daily intake of 400iu is a sensible level which is the level found in each of our capsules.
The vitamin E is also found in vegetable oils, nuts and seeds (such almonds and sunflower seeds), green leafy vegetables and whole grains.
The vitamin E used in Lamberts® products is obtained naturally from vegetable oil and in our products is standardized in d-alpha tocopherol, but other tocopherols are present. This vitamin, like other fat-soluble nutrients, can be measured in Micrograms (μg) or in International Units (IU). 1 mg of D-Alpha Tocopherol = 1.49 IU
