COMPLETE E™ (60 softgels)
A Complete, Full-Spectrum Vitamin E Formula
Mixed Tocotrienols & Tocopherols from Rice Bran Oil
GMO and Soy-Free!
COMPLETE E™ is a unique oil extract of rice bran (Japonica species) rich both in tocotrienols and tocopherols. Tocotrienols are Vitamin E compounds that act as powerful antioxidants. One softgel capsule contains 35 mg of tocotrienols (approximately 19.3 mg of gamma tocotrienol and 15 mg of alpha tocotrienol and small amounts of delta and beta tocotrienols). Complete E™ also contains 31.4 IU of d-alpha tocopherol, and all of the other known tocopherols (gamma tocopherol, delta tocopherol and beta tocopherol).
COMPLETE E™ is our unique “one-of-a-kind” full spectrum Vitamin E formula containing no other ingredients, fillers, preservatives, or colorings. Plus, it is soy-free (unlike most other Vitamin E-type formulas)!
NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS AND APPLICATIONS
Tocotrienols are in the class of Vitamin E compounds along with tocopherols. Both compounds consist basically of a double-ring structure called the chromanol head and an isoprenoid tail (similar to coenzyme Q10). Depending upon whether the chromanol head has 3, 2, or 1 methyl groups attached and where these groups are attached, they are called alpha, gamma, delta, or beta tocotrienols / tocopherols.
A major difference between tocotrienols and tocopherols is that the tail is saturated in the case of tocopherols, but is polyunsaturated in tocotrienols. As with the fatty acids, a polyunsaturated structure means that the molecule is more reactive and more fluid. This means, for example, that alpha tocotrienol would be much more protective of cell membranes than alpha tocopherol, and would more easily be regenerated by Vitamin C.
Research shows that in cell membranes, alpha tocotrienol is 40–60 times more protective against free radicals than alpha tocopherol.
Other research has shown that gamma tocotrienol enzymatically blocks the synthesis of cholesterol.
In addition, tocotrienols: 1) protect serum lipids from oxidation, including LDL and HDL, 2) may serve to trap harmful nitrogenous radicals, and 3) provide powerful oxidative defense for the skin.
