Ultimate-E contains all of the natural isomers of vitamin E. Tocopherols provide protection from free radicals and products of oxygenation, including lipid peroxides and singlet oxygen radicals.* Gamma-tocopherol inhibits the enzyme cyclooxygenase, whereas alpha-tocopherol does not appear to have a significant effect on this enzyme.* Human studies comparing diets supplemented with both gamma- and alpha-tocopherols (more gamma than alpha) to diets supplemented primarily with alpha-tocopherol found more DNA protection in the mixed-tocopherol group than in the alpha-tocopherol-only group.*Antioxidants such as vitamin E are vital to the overall antioxidant capacity in the blood and tissues.* Numerous clinical studies have shown vitamin E is beneficial to the cardiovascular system, and recent studies looking at mixed tocopherols have indicated they have a stronger inhibitory effect on lipid peroxidation than alpha-tocopherol alone, indicating a more potent antioxidant effect of mixed tocopherols.* Supplementing with Ultimate-E, with its naturally occurring ratio of tocopherols, is an efficient way to supplement the vitamin E molecules – without the addition of soy oil as a filler.Thorne Research's Ultimate-E contains pure, undiluted vitamin E. The vitamin E is extracted from a mixture of vegetable oils, including soy oil. However, any potentially allergenic soy residues are removed during the distillation process and, unlike most vitamin E products on the market, Ultimate-E is not diluted with soy oil. Because the tocopherols come from a natural source, the exact tocopherol profile can vary slightly from batch to batch, although extra alpha-tocopherol is added to each batch to standardize the amount of this important tocopherol to 500 IU per capsule.

Beta, Gamma, and Delta tocopherols vary slightly with this natural product which is weight-adjusted to achieve 500 IU d-alpha tocopherol.
