There was a long standing debate as to whether natural or synthetic vitamin E is better. For most vitamins, there is no difference between natural and synthetic. With vitamin E, however, the natural form has proven superior. Natural vitamin E is distributed through the body much better than the synthetic form. The reason is that specific carrier proteins in the liver selectively bind to natural vitamin E and transport it through the blood to cells throughout the body. These carrier proteins only recognise a portion of synthetic vitamin E and ignore the remainder. Life Extension’s Vitamin E softgels provide only the better utilised natural vitamin E.
