What Is It?
In 2001, AOR introduced the first complete E-complex to North America. Total E contains only natural ingredients and is not bolstered with synthetic alpha-tocopherol or unnatural ratios of each vitamer, which can lead to imbalances in the body. Total E was the first complete, balanced E complex supplement in Canada and provides all four tocopherols and four tocotrienols in their natural ratios. The formula also includes Coenzyme Q10, because this nutrient plays a vital role in “recharging” E vitamins to their active antioxidant form when they are deactivated in the battle against free radicals.
What Does It Do?Primary Uses: Vitamin E is primarily an antioxidant and is one of five members of the body's antioxidant network. Vitamin E is often used to help keep skin healthy and youthful, protecting it against UV damage and helping to heal wounds.
Secondary Uses: Vitamin E is also often used for heart health. Unfortunately, results from clinical studies have not been consistent; this could be due to using alpha-tocpherol alone, or worse, synthetic vitamin E. The benefits of the other tocopherols and tocotrienols cannot be ignored. In fact, gamma-tocopherol and gamma-tocotrienol may be involved in helping to regulate blood pressure. In addition, people with low gamma-tocopherol have been found to have a higher incidence of prostate problems and cognitive decline.
Who Should Take It?
People who supplement with regular vitamin E that contains only alpha-tocopherol (or one of the synthetic variations) should consider switching to a natural, full-spectrum vitamin E. Those who need antioxidant, skin health and cholesterol support may benefit from taking Total E.
Take 1 softgel daily with food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner. An extra capsule should be taken for each 200 IU of alpha-tocopherol in any other supplements you may be taking.
