Vitamin E or tocopherol exists in different forms: ALPHA, BETA, GAMMA AND DELTA-tocopherol. Alpha tocopherol is the most active.
It is stored in the liver and fatty tissues. The main sources of vitamin E are undoubtedly, vegetable oils, which are prevented from turning rancid by vitamin E (wheat germ, walnut, sunflower, safflower, olive), almonds and fish oils.

It is a vitamin with multiple properties:

Cell functioning, the environment (air pollution, UV rays, tobacco, ionizing radiation) and the progressive decrease in enzymes caused by ageing – SOD and peroxidase – lead to the production of free radicals and to an excess of endogenous defences. These oxidize polyunsaturated fatty acids. Vitamin E limits this aggression by preserving the integrity of the biological membranes and lipoproteins.

This antioxidant role is fundamental:

– in the formation of atheromatous plaques preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. Once oxidized, the latter deposits on the walls of blood vessels, causing cardiovascular diseases:

hypertension, angina, heart attack, etc….

– in the protection of neurons that prevent Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases;

– in platelet activity. By inhibiting platelet adhesion, it plays a preventive role in coagulation disorders with the risk of thrombosis: phlebitis, embolism, etc.

– in the inflammatory phenomena of joint or auto-immune diseases.

It must therefore, be combined with B vitamins and polyunsaturated fatty acids;

– in regulating the immune system.

– in some hormonal disorders (in the genital sphere).

D-alpha tocopherol is a 100% natural vitamin E and a great organic antioxidant. It protects cell membranes, the eyes, the reproductive organs and skin.

The body prefers natural vitamin E:

Synthetic vitamin E is cheaper, but less effective. It is only absorbed half as much as the natural form and only 12% of the synthetic form corresponds to the natural isomer, the only kind used by the body.

Natural vitamins are different from synthetic vitamins, as shown by the difference in their formulas. For example, vitamin E in its natural form is called RRR-ALPHA TOCOPHEROL, while the synthetic form is called TOUT-RAC-ALPHA TOCOPHEROL and consists in a set of eight molecules (stereoisomers) of which seven do not exist in nature.

Synthetic molecules are much less likely to be assimilated by the body.

The body also finds it difficult to eliminate residues of these unknown molecules, which can thus become toxic.

The protective effects of vitamin E are increased by vitamins C and A, selenium, zinc and lycopene.


we recommend taking one capsule a day.



– Women on the pill: combine vitamin E with vitamins B and A (Delta B, Delta A).

– Sportsmen and women: combine vitamin E with vitamins C and B (Delta C Plus, Delta B)

– Cardio-vascular diseases: for the prevention and complementary treatment of atherosclerosis, angina, heart attack, stroke: combine vitamin E with Omega 3 and 9 and ginkgo biloba (Vitigin).

Vitamin E can be taken during or after meals, but it is preferable at the end of the meal.

PMID 15256801. “In North America, the intake of γ-tocopherol has been estimated to exceed that of α-tocopherol by a factor of 2–4 … due to the fact that soybean oil is the predominant vegetable oil in the American diet (76.4%) followed by corn oil and canola oil (both 7%) … The supply of dietary fats … is much more diverse in Europe … The oils mainly consumed in Europe, i.e. sunflower, olive and canola oil, provide less γ-tocopherol but more α- tocopherol … [T]he ratio of α-:γ-tocopherol is at least 1:2. Therefore, the average γ-tocopherol intake can be estimated as 4–6 mg/day, which is about 25–35% of the USA intake. In accordance with the lower estimated European intake of γ-tocopherol, the serum levels of γ-tocopherol in European populations are 4–20 times lower than that of α-tocopherol”

• “Taken together, these data indicate that of the eight stereoisomers (RRR, RSR, RRS, RSS, SRR, SSR, SRS, SSS) in all-rac-α-tocopherol, only the four 2R-forms (RRR, RSR, RSS, RRS) are recognized by α-TTP and maintained in the plasma. Indeed, the Food and Nutrition Board (Food and Nutrition Board and Institute of Medicine, 2000) has defined that only α-tocopherol, specifically the 2R-forms of α-tocopherol, can fulfill the human requirement for vitamin E. Thus, all-rac-α-tocopherol has only half the activity of RRR-α-tocopherol.”
