Daily Super E™ is not just any vitamin E supplement! It features the highest quality tocotrienol form of vitamin E. This type of vitamin E has been extensively studied and shown to provide a wide range of health benefits. This is far different from the cheap, synthetic vitamin E supplements common on the market. Tocotrienol vitamin E is highly protective to the cardiovascular system, brain, skin, and general cellular health. It is one of our "Daily" supplements because of the broad- spectrum health benefits it provides to people of all ages.*
Daily Super E™ is one of our most popular supplements and sets a new gold standard for vitamin E supplementation. Our specially-prepared formula is high in both gamma and alpha tocotrienol. Alpha tocotrienol is a superior antioxidant that helps to protect cells in the circulatory system. Gamma tocotrienol communicates directly to the liver and positively influences the healthy metabolism of cholesterol, a powerful tool to help attain and maintain proper cholesterol levels. Daily Super E™ is an effective supplement for cholesterol metabolism, arterial health, bones, and even reproductive health.*
Tocotrienol vs. Tocopherol Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant and has been studied extensively as it relates to reproductive, neurologic, cardiovascular, and immune system health. Of the eight naturally occurring forms of vitamin E, four are tocotrienols (alpha, beta, delta, and gamma) and four are tocopherols (alpha, beta, delta, and gamma). The most commonly known form is d-alpha tocopherol. (Synthetic vitamin E is called dl-alpha tocopherol and should be avoided entirely.)*
In the 1980's, it was discovered that the tocotrienol forms of vitamin E possess unique biological activity that d-alpha tocopherol does not. This is because tocotrienols have a unique short and flexible tail structure, which enables them to move about freely and function metabolically in ways that tocopherol vitamin E cannot.*
Wellness Resources was one of the first companies to use tocotrienols, and we are glad we did! Daily Super E™ is the gold standard of tocotrienol products. No filler oils are used and there is a balance of alpha and gamma tocotrienol. Many tocotrienol products are high in only gamma tocotrienol and use diluting oils such as soy. Wellness Resources is one of the only companies to produce a tocotrienol supplement of superior quality.*
Supplementing with different forms of vitamin E is not redundant because they perform different biological functions. Alpha tocotrienol is extraordinarily protective of the nervous system, where d-alpha tocopherol lacks this activity. This is due to alpha tocotrienol's superior antioxidant activity and its unique ability to influence natural mechanisms involved with nerve protection.*
Alpha tocotrienol studies have shown:
- Alpha tocotrienol stabilizes the endothelial cells that line the circulatory system far better than d-alpha tocopherol does. It was shown that the isoprenoid tail was partly responsible for this superior protection.*
- Alpha tocotrienols are absorbed into cell membranes 70 times better than d-alpha tocopherol.*
- Alpha tocotrienol protects red blood cells better than d-alpha tocopherol.*
Gamma tocotrienol is another tocotrienol with specific health benefits, and aids in both cellular health and healthy cholesterol metabolism.*
Gamma tocotrienol has been shown to modulate both the NF-kappaB gene signal and other signals involved with cellular survival. Gamma tocotrienol is very protective of all cells, but especially those of the male and female reproductive systems.*
Gamma tocotrienol communicates with the primary enzyme involved with cholesterol metabolism, HMG CoA reductase.* In normal cholesterol metabolism, the production of cholesterol is self-regulating. This is similar to a situation in which a person at the end of a production line makes a phone call back to the person at the front of the line, telling them "enough widgets have been made."
In cholesterol production, specific compounds communicate back to the HMG CoA reductase enzyme and tell it to "go home for the day, you are no longer needed." The tail of gamma tocotrienol is one of these compounds that communicates this message. Through this process it assists in modulating cholesterol production in a natural manner. Because of this, tocotrienols are an excellent nutrient to support healthy cholesterol metabolism.*
It is well-known that vitamin E is an important antioxidant for the skin. However, several studies highlight the outstanding benefits of the tocotrienol form of vitamin E for skin protection. One study showed that tocotrienols help turn on genes in fibroblasts that enhance the production of collagen. This can help promote youthful skin and reduce the effects of stress on skin.*
Another study showed that gamma tocotrienol, but not plain vitamin E (d alpha tocopherol), is able to regulate gene signals in skin to reduce damage caused by UVB radiation. When individuals take antioxidants like gamma tocotrienol on a regular basis, it accumulates in cell membranes and the skin, where it can help you enjoy the sun with less risk of adverse effects from UVB radiation. Unlike abnormal sunscreen chemicals, this is your body’s natural and normal way of enabling you to be in the sun with less risk to your health.*
Brain and Nerve Health
Tocotrienols are shown to help nourish the brain and nerves at any age. Regular consumption of tocotrienols increases the brain concentration of them, giving you a novel form of cognitive protection to help buffer daily wear and tear.*
One study where tocotrienols were given to aging animals found that the brain mitochondria were able to maintain their ability to make energy and not experience the decline that is typical of the aging brain. Another study found that tocotrienols were able to protect the nerves from alcohol consumption.*
Since the health of your brain is critical to your quality of life, using a variety of brain support nutrients to bolster both function and protection is a really good idea. The brain-enhancing science behind tocotrienols makes them an excellent choice as part of your cognitive support nutrient program.*
Pregnancy and Brain Health
An animal study showed that a mother taking tocotrienols during pregnancy and lactation resulted in higher blood levels of tocotrienols the offspring with significant accumulation of tocotrienols in the structures of the brain (4-6 times the level compared to controls). The animals with the high tocotrienols performed significantly better on cognitive tests.*
Fat Cells and Weight Management
Since tocotrienols are a fat-soluble nutrient it is not surprising to find that they enter your white adipose tissue (fat), wherein they help put a lid on the expansion of white adipose tissue growth. This means they help curb the desire to make bigger fat cells that store more fat. They also help boost production of adiponectin within your fat, helping to support healthy blood sugar while also helping to reduce a buildup of fat in the liver.
In fact, researchers are now advocating tocotrienols as a tool to help combat virtually every aspect of the metabolic syndrome. While no nutrient is a magic bullet for weight loss, tocotrienols can help guide you back in the right direction and offer significant protection to your body while you get back on track. Tocotrienols are also in our Leptinal® supplement for healthy weight management.*
