dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E)

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant, acts as a co-enzyme in cellular membranes and serves as a scavenger for free radicals.

Dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetate is an all-synthetic form of alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E). This synthesized version exists in equal amounts of eight isomers while the natural extraction from vegetable oils (d-alpha-tocopheryl acetate) exists only as one isomer. D-alpha-tocopheryl acetate (natural) may be a better alternative to increase tissue levels and retention of vitamin E compared to dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetate (synthetic).

Vitamin E forms are listed as either plain "tocopherol" or tocopheryl followed by the name of what is attached to it, as in "tocopheryl acetate". The two forms are not greatly different. However, plain tocopherol may be absorbed a little better, while tocopheryl attached forms have a slightly better shelf life.

Vitamin E helps maintains the integrity of the body's intracellular membrane and can protect against heart disease and the development of cancers by enhancing immune function. RDA is 10 mg per day for an adult male, 8 mg/day for and adult female, and 3 mg/day for an infant or toddler.
