Emerging research demonstrates that gamma-Tocopherol, the most abundant form of Vitamin E in the diet, has very important and unique functions. Central to these functions is its capacity to detoxify reactive nitrogen species, an especially destructive form of free radical. In addition, gamma-Tocopherol acts to trap and remove free radicals from the body in a way that alpha-Tocopherol cannot.
NOW® Sun-E™ 400 is a soy-free, natural Vitamin E derived from Identity Preserved (IP), Non-GMO Sunflower Seed Oil. Vitamin E is a major antioxidant and the body's primary defense against lipid peroxidation. It is particularly important for the protection against cellular free radical/oxidative damage. These protective benefits are achievable with supplemental intakes higher than what is normally consumed in the average diet.
