While it's true that Dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetate has a slightly lower absorption rate vs D-alpha-tocopheryl, HOWEVER when you consider the absorption rate of .45 X 1000IU, your body is getting 470IU vs every D-alpha-tocopheryl at around the same price is only 400IU. Evan at the higher absorption rate of .67, you still only get 268IU or nearly half as much. If you want your body to get the same amount absorbed, you would need to spend two to three times as much. Sure you could simply take more, or buy a higher dosage, but either way you will pay more. Much more.

Vitamin E is an essential nutrient and is the body's primary, fat-soluble antioxidant. vitamin E provides nutritional support for the cardiovascular system, skin, and the immune system. Helps fight cell-damaging free radicals that cause oxidative stress in the body, which may contribute to the premature aging of cells.

Dl-alpha-tocopherol acetate, or esterized Vitamin E is a synthetic form of alpha-tocopherol. This synthetic form of alpha-tocopherol is less bioavailable than the d-alpha-tocopherol and is only half as potent, notes the Oregon State University Linus Pauling Institute. However, since it's usually sold at 2 to 3X the dosage of the more natural form of Vitamin D with only a slightly lower rate of absorption (.45 vs .67), it's usually a MUCH better value.


We do not make vitamin E in our body, nor do animals. We have to get our vitamin E from our food or from supplements. Science also tells us that we need to take much higher levels than the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) to get its full benefits. Because vitamin E is fat-soluble, it is generally found in fat-rich foods. Can we get enough vitamin E from our food without gulping thousands of fat calories? Can it be done and which foods we should choose? That's the challenge!

Plants make vitamin E and supply both animals and humans. Of course we get vitamin E from meat and fish but the original source is plants (and other primitive forms of life - algae, microorganisms, etc.)

Fruits and vegetables contain little vitamin E. Most meat, fish, dairy and animal products are also rather poor sources of vitamin E. Farm animals and most of the fish we eat get vitamin E from their food. So, the amount in their body depends, in large part, to what they eat.

So where is vitamin E? The best sources are fat-rich foods from plants. Some low fat foods like legume seeds and grains supply lower but yet reasonable amounts of vitamin E.

Vitamin E rich foods fall in four groups:

Vegetable oils. Soy, corn, sunflower, canola, cottonseed, peanut, rice bran, sesame, and palm oils.

Nuts like almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts, pistachios and walnuts.

Oil seeds, legumes and grains. Corn, soy, northern beans, lentils, chickpeas, barley, rice, wheat and oats fall in this group.

Wheat germ oil. This is not your average cooking or salad oil. Extracted from the germ of wheat it has been used since the 1920s as a vitamin E supplement. It packs 233 IU and 254 milligrams of total tocopherols plus tocotrienols. Forty-five grams of it take care of the 100/100 system.
