Vitamin E (Tocopherols, Tocotrienols, etc.)
OK, folks, let’s get this straight. The vitamin E you buy in the store is synthetic. It is called d-alpha-tocopherol. It is one of eight molecules in the family of molecules (tocopherols and tocotrienols) we call vitamin E. Nature designed these eight molecules to work together synergistically: better together than separate. The reason store bought vitamin E is synthetic is that it is easy and cheap to make.
Doctors in nutritional medicine use the tools which work best in order to stay competitive. If what we use doesn’t work better than what the other guys use, why would our patients continue to come see us? Unique E is one of those tools which we know about while the other guys will barely admit that vitamin E of any kind is useful.
