Forms of Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a broad term used to describe a group of eight antioxidants: four tocopherols (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-) and four tocotrienols (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-). The form found most commonly in the body, and has the greatest nutritional importance – is alpha-tocopherol.
There are two types of alpha tocopherol – dl-alpha-tocopherol and d-alpha tocopherol. dl-alpha tocopherol, the synthetic form, can be commonly found in nutritional supplements and fortified foods. The dl-alpha tocopherol form is utilized in fortification and supplementation due to its resistance to oxidation which allows for greater shelf-life.1 Kirkland SignatureTMVitamin E 400 IU provides vitamin E in the dl-alpha tocopherol form to help you meet your daily vitamin E needs.
Major sources of alpha-tocopherol include vegetable oils (olive, safflower and sunflower oils), nuts, and seeds, which can be calorically dense. Leafy greens and whole grains are also good sources of alpha-tocopherol. Many Americans (93%) fail to obtain the recommended daily amount of vitamin E through dietary intake.2 A vitamin E supplement may be a good option to help individuals fulfill this nutrient gap in their diet.
