How Good Is your Vitamin E?

"My Vitamin E is really good, its natural D-Alfa Tocopherol, the best!"

This is the most likely thought that would pop into most peoples minds and you would be right to a certain degree, you should always buy natural D-Alfa Tocopherol but there is more to it than that!

Vitamin E is important as it is a antioxidant, and antioxidants destroy free radicals.

What most companies will not tell you is how important the carrier oil is.

As I have mentioned earlier, Vitamin E is a antioxidant which play a role in eliminating free radicals. But did you know that the majority of oils are processed at very high temperatures (500 degrees and more) These processes are the "Refining Process" and "Deodorization"

It is important to note that Mary Enig and Sally Fallon of the Weston A. Price Foundation noted "High-temperature processing causes the weak carbon bonds of unsaturated fatty acids, especially triple unsaturated linolenic acid, to break apart, thereby creating dangerous free radicals. In addition, antioxidants, such as fat-soluble vitamin E, which protect the body from the ravages of free radicals, are neutralized or destroyed by high temperatures and pressures."

So, these processes will mitigate any benefits from the natural Vitamin E

This is why Health Leads UK Ltd have gone to great lengths to source the best natural Vitamin E that is non-refinded and non-deodorized.
