While many think that the term “vitamin E” refers to a single entity, it actually describes a family of eight different compounds known as the tocopherols and the tocotrienols. The d-alpha tocopherol isomer is the most well-known form of vitamin E, and is one of the body’s most important antioxidant nutrients – especially in cell membranes. Like tocopherols, tocotrienols function as powerful antioxidants. Numerous studies have shown gamma-tocopherol to have excellent antioxidant abilities that complement the antioxidant ability of alpha-tocopherol. In certain systems, there is evidence that tocotrienols may even possess greater antioxidant activity compared with tocopherols.
