Updated on March 28, 2012

The Family of E For Great Skin

Vitamin E has been proven to be a great source for being used as a supplement for healthy younger looking skin. Whether Vitamin E is applied as a cream, or taken internally. I will be the first to admit that I am guilty for thinking vitamin E is just one vitamin. This vitamin actually belongs to a group of eight different, let's call them associates . Vitamin E Is just a common name or you could say generic for lack of a better word that represents the whole group. To keep it simple and not confuse anyone the major two compounds of vitamin E are: . 1. Tocopherols;2. Tocotrienols Both contain four ingredients with identical names;

1.) alpha, beta, gamma, delta 2.) alpha, beta, gamma, delta

This makes up the first eight associates or family related vitamin E properties.

There is also a 9th vitamin E which is new to the community, this is alpha-tocomonoenol this vitamin e is associated and located in fish eggs.

Vitamin E supplements realistically consist of all eight associated plus alpha-tocopherol (alpha-tocopherol is the best nutritional supply of E for our bodies).

Alpha-Tocopherol is the most potent form of E, and found in foods such as; raw nuts, soybean and asparagus. This form of vitamin E is essentially what is found in our diets.
