Vitamin E was discovered in 1922 in green leafy vegetables, but only recently is seen as a powerful antioxidant. It is oil-soluble and difficult to be absorbed. It is stored in adipose tissue and liver. This element offers many health benefits, especially in the prevention of diseases due to its powerful antioxidant properties.

Alpha-tocopherol is the most common and most biologically active. Recent studies indicate that different components of vitamin E are probably responsible for different effects. For example, scientists believe that alpha-tocopherol is preventing the production of free radicals, and gamma-tocopherol neutralizes the existing. Since vitamin E is a group of nutrients it is nice to find a product that contains all the types of tocopherols, which would contribute to greater benefits.
