Alpha-Tocopherol is well-known for its potent antioxidant properties: however, each of the Tocopherols has important and unique activities. Gamma-Tocopherol, the most abundant form of Vitamin E in the diet, is especially important for optimal health, as it is necessary for the proper and complete action of Alpha-Tocopherol. Central to its functions is its capacity to detoxify and help the body to eliminate reactive nitrogen species, an especially destructive form of free radical. This product features a more natural combination of these forms that helps to support the maintenance of cardiovascular health, as well as to promote normal cell growth and reproduction.
Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.

I totally agree with the other one star review. Soybean oil is a nasty, cheap oil. Moreover, it is very likely made from GM soy, as most of the world's supply of soy is GM. WHY ruin an otherwise good product idea (mixed tocopherols) like this? SHAME ON YOU, NOW FOODS! Avoid this product. Show Now Foods and other supplement manufacturers that you expect more of your health supplements.
Why would they add something so bad to antioxidants?Soy contains high levels of phytic acid which block your body’s ability to absorb minerals and vitamins from the foods you eat. This causes you to actually become malnourished. I wish I checked the label more carefully before buying.I have a krill oil that I recently purchased and there's a big sign on the bottle that says soybean oil free so I researched this soybean oil a bit more and apparently the soy plant itself is actually toxic to humans.Soybean oil contains a poisonous chemical called PHG; this chemical slows your blood circulation, causes your blood to clot, damages the central nervous system, interferes with digestion and can cause memory loss. 99 % of soy grown in US is GMO,plus this product doesn't even say non GMO,so you are paying for a poisonous GMO substance.I threw away this product as well as their garlic oil cause it also contains soy oil.And I've decided to completley boycott this brand.I'm definitely not going to reward them for trying to poison me so the least I can do is take my money elsewhere.

I took the original form before (d-alpha Tocopherol) for a week and after a week I stopped that and started with this. First didn't notice anything and all was good. Slowly I developed rashes on my skin. After noticing things are getting worse, I took a 250 iu d-alpha again once and immediately things got better. This is a good product but ratio in this product is all wrong. If you take this, make sure you combine it with 250 or 400 iu d-alpha Tocopherol or buy "Now Foods - Gamma E Complex" instead. Remember the ratio between d-alpha/d-gamma is almost 10/1. d-gamma is important but d-alpha Tocopherol is much more important. Once done, combine with 1000mg vitamin C.
