Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin. Since 1968, vitamin E is regarded as an essential nutrient, although it has been known since the 20s as a component of food.

8 different natural vitamin E compounds

Generally, vitamin E compounds only occur as a mixture of substances in nature and only 8 natural vitamin E compounds have been identified yet, including alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherol as well as alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocotrienol. The most important substance is alpha-tocopherol, because is even effective in small amounts. At the same time, it’s the most component in the body: Approx. 90% of its vitamin E content is made up of alpha-tocopherol.

Tocotrienols and tocopherols

Chemically speaking, tocotrienols differ from tocopherols by only one side chain. Tocotrienols have a triple unsaturated side chain, whereas tocopherols are completely saturated. These unsaturated double bonds lead to a significantly increased vitamin activity of the tocotrienols.

Tocotrienols and cholesterol

Tocotrienols operate in the liver, where 80% of the LDL cholesterol are produced. They inhibit the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase in the liver, which is responsible for the production of cholesterol. Tocopherols, on the other hand, do not affect the cholesterol production.

Tocotrienols support the nervous system

A study conducted at the Ohio State University, USA, showed that tocotrienols are able to cross the blood-brain-barrier and protect the neurons against numerous toxins. This study was chosen as one of the best 10% of all scientific publications during the prestigious international conference Oxygen 2001, 8th annual meeting of the Oxygen Association, North Carolina, USA in November 2001.
