I switched from taking simple Vit E to this product and I can see improvements in my skin. Jarrow formulas uses all 8 forms of the vitamin E , 4 forms of tocopherols and 4 of tocotrienols in this product making it very comprehensive and effective. I have used it now for four months and will continue using it.
Vitamin E is a nutrient that performs as an antioxidant in the body. It exists naturally in certain foods and is sometimes added to others. Vitamin E exists in 8 chemical forms. Alpha-tocopherol is the form that best meets the dietary requirements of humans. Vitamin E is fat-soluble, which means it’s absorbed and similarly moves through the body to fats. It’s stored in the liver and fatty tissue and is used when needed. Definitely makes a difference. My skin looks healthier and energy increased.
Tocopherol and tocotrienols, the essential vitamin E are mainly found in edible oils with high lipid content. Together, the class comprises of eight fat-soluble compounds with vitamin E role: four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, essential for health. It can be stored by the body, so vitamin E does not have to be consumed every day. The vitamin E, i.e. chroman-6-ols collectively tocochromanols (tocopherols + tocotrienols), is generally ingested along with fat-containing foods. Good source are vegetable oils, nuts and nut oil seeds, egg yolk, margarine, cheese, soya beans, wheat germ, oatmeal, avocados, olives, green leaf vegetables, etc.. Tocopherols are predominant in olive, sunflower, corn, soya beans oils, and tocotrienols are the major vitamin E components of palm oil, of barley and rice bran. Great value for money as it contains al 8 types of vitamin E!
I live in a big city so this is a must for my health with the air quality issues here. This one is the best!
great quality product it's essential antioxidant that great for heart, skin, hair. It also helps dissolve scar tissue in the lungs. I was looking for vitamin E that contains tocotrienols that much more powerful than tocopherol along. Definitely recommend people with breathing problems
FamilE® contains all 8 members of the vitamin E family. These "Toco's"—4 forms of tocopherols and 4 of tocotrienols—are typically found concentrated in plant seeds and vegetable oils. FamilE® is specifically rich in gamma tocopherol and tocotrienols (EVNol SupraBio™) for enhanced antioxidant and cardiovascular function.
I feel it's always best to ingest vitamins and minerals in as natural a form as possible. Regarding Vitamin E, this would mean eating organic, non-GMO high quality food sources such as sunflower oil, safflower oil, nuts, high-value green leafy veggies such as spinach, turnip, beet greens, collards, dandelion greens, etc., avocados, asparagus, broccoli, and pumpkin. Finding such quality foods freshly harvested and nutrient rich at reasonable prices is becoming inreasingly difficult. So I supplement. Regarding Vitamin E, I've used a number of Vitamin E supplementation products in both liquid, gelcap, and other forms, including those from Solgar, Thompson, NOW, and others, as well as other forms of Vitamin E from Jarrow itself. This supplement from Jarrow, containing all 8 members of the vitamin E family (hence it's name),works best for me. Perhaps it's because this supplement is particularly rich in gamma tocopheral and tocotrienols and therefore avoids some of the problems people find sometimes with the supplements containing excess (or only) d-alpha tocopheral. I take it along with a Vitamin C supplement because I find for me, the two work well together, seemingly benefiting from each other's presence. What I particilarly notice is faster return to normalcy in muscle tissues after exertion, better skin, improved digestion, improved resistance to colds, better circulation, and better overall neurological function including more clarity of mind.
My only trustworthy supplement which technically improves the health of my dull and dry hair, it contains essential vitamins that beautifies my skin , everything about this product is PURE EXCELLENCE.
Very good complex, has good amount of gamma tocopherols. The taste and size of the pill is OK. The dosage is great. Like the Jarrow's vitamin E products for that quality.
Before i learned about the tocotrienols i took a standard vitamin E supplement. Switching to this brand who has all 8 vitamin E made a world of difference. I will keep ordering. Amazing product.
