Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin; meaning your body stores and uses it as needed. Vitamin E is a collective name for a group of eight different compounds (that have varying levels of biological activity)alpha, beta, gamma, and delta-tocopherol, & alpha, beta, gamma, and delta-tocotrienol

Vitamin E functions and health benefits (including but not limited to) [1,2]:

  • Cells use vitamin E to interact with each other. It helps them carry out many important functions.
  • Antioxidant. It protects body tissue from damage caused by substances called free radicals. Free radicals can harm cells, tissues, and organs. They are believed to play a role in certain conditions related to aging.
  • The body also needs vitamin E to help keep the immune system strong against viruses and bacteria. 
  • Vitamin E is also important in the formation of red blood cells
  • It helps the body use vitamin K
  • It also helps widen blood vessels and keep blood from clotting inside them.
  • Reduced Risk of Heart Disease - Vitamin E is thought to help prevent heart disease by inhibiting oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and helping to prevent blood clots which could lead to a heart attack. 
  • Reduced Cancer Risk (*Controversial) - Vitamin E may help reduce cancer risk by acting as an antioxidant and by preventing formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines formed in the stomach from nitrites in foods.
  • Promoted Eye Health (Prevention from Macular Degeneration) (*Controversial) - At least one study has shown intake of the DV for vitamin E reduces risk of age related eye damage (macular degeneration) by 20%. Other studies, however, fail to find any association. 
  • Alleviation of Chronic Inflammation - Preliminary studies show that vitamin E can help mediate the inflammatory response and may help those with type II diabetes or chronic heart failure, who suffer from chronic inflammation. 
  • Reduced Risk of Dementia (Cognitive Decline) (*Controversial) - Preliminary findings have shown increased levels of vitamin E to have a protective effect on mental functioning as people age. Further studies need to be conducted to confirm this finding. 
  • Reduced Risk of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's Disease) (*Controversial) - A long range study found that increased intake of Vitamin E over 5 years could reduce risk of ALS. Further studies are needed as the sample size was small.

Nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils are among the best sources of alpha-tocopherol, and significant amounts are available in green leafy vegetables and fortified cereals. [3]  alpha-tocopherol is the only one form used by the human body. However, most vitamin E in American diets is in the form of gamma-tocopherol from soybean, canola, corn, and other vegetable oils and food products.

Until recently, most vitamin E supplements only contained alpha-tocopherol – one of the most active forms of vitamin E and the only one used by the human body. Several studies have been published that demonstrate the importance of consuming the entire family of vitamin E compounds, as they each have specific biochemical and physiological effects that benefit the body. 

As with all of Dr. Kenawy's professional line products, we use the best manufactures in making our formulas. Dr. Kenawy’s Perfect E formula features the complete family of vitamin E compounds. It also contains the patented Tocomin® brand of tocotrienols by Carotech. Carotech, the largest and only GMP-certified palm tocotrienol/tocopherol complex producer in the world, announces a groundbreaking, largest ever tocotrienols human clinical study results for neuroprotection. Tocomin® natural full spectrum palm tocotrienol complex is FDA-certified GRAS for use in food and drinks applications. There are new and emerging research results that support palm tocotrienol complex (Tocomin®) as having unique and far more significant health improvement potentials, compared to the conventional vitamin E alpha-tocopherol. Recent clinical trials using Tocomin® and Tocomin®SupraBio™ have shown that they potently support neuro-, cardiovascular and prostate health as well as skin health.

 

Features:

  • Contains 400 IU alpha-tocopherol.
  • Mixed tocopherols including 400mg of gamma-tocopherol.
  • Tocotrienols from Patented Tocomin® brand tocotrienols is a true full-spectrum palm tocotrienol complex with the highest ratio of alpha-, beta-, gamma, and delta-tocotrienols; guaranteed non-GMO!
  • This brand of tocotrienols has been used in clinical studies and shown to be a superior source of complete tocotrienols. 
  • Easy to swallow soft gel.
  • Carotech's branded ingredients are 100% Non-GMO, Kosher and Halal certified

 

Benefits:

  • Provides the synergistic benefits of all vitamin E compounds.
  • Thousands of studies have been published demonstrating the benefits of alpha-tocopherol. Provides cardiovascular and antioxidant support.†
  • Unlike alpha-tocopherol, gamma-tocopherol has the ability to protect against nitrogen-based free radicals.† This type of free radical plays an important role in diseases associated with chronic inflammation.†
  • Whereas alpha-tocopherol helps neutralize already formed free radicals, gamma-tocopherol helps reduce their production.†
  • High amounts of alpha-tocopherol have the ability to deplete the body of gamma-tocopherol; hence the importance of taking both.
  • Tocotrieniols have been shown to support normal, healthy cholesterol levels.†
  • Tocotrieniols help support normal blood-clotting.†
  • Normal, healthy cell growth is supported by tocotrieniols.†
