Health Benefits at a Glance:
The Gamma E Mixed Tocopherols formula provides gamma tocopherol, a critically important form of vitamin E which can quench some of the most common free radicals. For an enhanced antioxidative effect and ageing-aging support, sesame lignans have been added to the formula to elevate the tissue levels of vitamin C and E, which both have antioxidative qualities.
Why it Works:
Most commercial vitamin E supplements contain very small amounts if any gamma tocopherol (a specific type of vitamin E) at all. Special for this type of vitamin E is that it´s highly effective against one of the most dangerous free radicals in the body: peroxynitrite. This free radical is a big culprit in encouraging age-related decline  why using gamma tocopherol to inhibit this type of free radical can help counteract the aging process.
Life Extension has fortified its Gamma E Tocopherol supplement with standardized sesame lignans. Sesame lignans have been shown to promote antioxidative activity in tissues by increasing the levels of two antioxidative vitamins, vitamin C and E . In combination with tocopherols this provides a dual defense against free radicals. The Gamma E Mixed Tocopherols formula provides a potent dose of gamma tocopherol along with an extract from sesame lignans to help defend against free radicals, protect cells and inhibit the aging process.
The Science Behind the Product:
Gamma tocopherol is considered very important because gamma tocopherol and not the ubiquitary alpha-tocopherol scavenges a particularly serious type of free radical called peroxynitrite . Human studies demonstrated that a combination of gamma tocopherol with sesame lignans was 25% more effective than gamma tocopherol/tocotrienols in suppressing tissue measurements for free radical and inflammatory response . Tocotrienols, another member of the vitamin E family, are recognized as nature’s most potent antioxidants. Therefore, it is a remarkable finding that low-cost gamma tocopherol with sesame is so effective.
