Clinical Applications
 
Gamma E Plus represents an advancement in vitamin E supplementation. This full-spectrum formula
provides a blend of tocopherols—rather than just isolated alpha-tocopherol—and is the preferred form for
long-term, daily supplementation of 200 IU or more. Clinical research suggests that vitamin E offers overall
antioxidant support, especially for the cardiovascular system, nerves, eyes, and reproductive organs.*

Discussion
Vitamin E in its natural form comprises eight different compounds: alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocopherols and alpha-, beta-, gamma-,
and delta-tocotrienols. The most widely studied have been alpha-tocopherol and gamma-tocopherol—the two forms that exert the most
antioxidant activity in the body and are found most abundantly in food. Alpha-tocopherol, in its natural d-alpha form, is the form primarily
retained in the body and found circulating in the bloodstream. Gamma-tocopherol is the form found most abundantly in food, although
heat and oxidation during cooking and processing can destroy it. Circulating levels of gamma-tocopherol are lower than those of alphatocopherol.
 
Through its antioxidant activity, vitamin E is believed to support cardiovascular, neurological, and eye health. However, its initial
discovery was based on its role in supporting healthy reproduction—hence the term tocopherol from the Greek “to bring forth offspring.”
Ongoing research continues to shed light on various other roles that vitamin E and its constituents may play.[1-3]*
As an important fat-soluble antioxidant, alpha-tocopherol is capable of directly protecting cells and lipid-based molecules from the effects
of free radicals and is incorporated into low-density lipoproteins (LDLs).[2,4] Supporting antioxidant activity within LDLs helps to maintain
cholesterol integrity, normal white blood cell activity, and the natural response to inflammation, which, in turn, supports cardiovascular
health.[4,5] Another important aspect of vitamin E is that it protects fatty acids from oxidation, especially the polyunsaturated fatty acids
found in cell membranes. Protection of cell membranes is crucial to the preservation of their function and integrity. Vitamin E requirements
are believed to increase in erythrocytes, neurons, and lung epithelia as the polyunsaturated fatty acid content of their cell membranes
increases.[6] Gamma E Plus provides a blend of tocotrienols and tocopherols, including 200 IU of alpha-tocopherol, to help meet the
body’s requirement for vitamin E.*
 
Research in humans and animals suggests that supplementation with alpha-tocopherol addresses superoxide production, nicotinamide
adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase, and scavenger receptors SR-A and CD36, and further supports normal white blood cell
health and foam cell levels. Supplementation also appears to promote healthy cytokine balance through its effects on IL-8, plasminogen
activator inhibitor-1, C-reactive protein (CRP), protein kinase C, 5-lipoxygenase, tyrosine-kinase, and cyclooxygenase-2, as well as
its support of endothelium cell integrity.[5] Vitamin E is believed to play a role in balancing arachidonic acid and prostacyclin, thereby
supporting normal blood vessel dilation and healthy platelet function.[4] Research utilizing a double-blinded parallel design suggests that
serum gamma-tocopherol levels increased significantly relative to dose, and all subjects receiving gamma-tocopherol supplementation
experienced significant support of LDL cholesterol, platelet aggregation, and mean platelet volume.*[1]
Research suggests that levels of gamma-tocopherol actually decreased with isolated alpha-tocopherol supplementation. In addition,
the combination of gamma-tocopherol and alpha-tocopherol appears to positively support healthy levels of high sensitivity CRP and
nitrotyrosine.[7,8] Gamma-tocopherol has also been recognized for its importance in maintaining prostate health. A study of 10,456 males
suggests that “statistically significant protective associations for high levels of selenium and alpha-tocopherol were observed only when
gamma-tocopherol concentrations were high.”[9] Ironically, research studies often incorporate only synthetic “all-rac-” (dl-alpha-tocopherol)
into study designs, including prostate health studies.*
 
Further research indicates that tocotrienol components of vitamin E exert their own distinct effects in the body and support nervous system
health and cell-life regulation, as well as cholesterol and AGE (advanced glycosylated end-product) levels already within the normal range.
[10-12] As prior research on isolated alpha-tocopherol and synthetic dl-alpha-tocopherol is recognized as incomplete and inconclusive, studies, investigating the benefits of supplementing with a balanced form of vitamin E are under way. In addition, because the liver closely regulates vitamin E status in the body, researchers believe that potentially adverse effects from supplementation are limited.*[13]
Gamma E Plus is designed as a complete and complementary vitamin E supplement. This balanced formula provides alpha- and gammatocopherols, as well as mixed tocopherols and tocotrienols, for effective support.*
