Vitamin E Facts & Fictions
Re: When taken together, these various forms of vitamin E work synergistically as a team to provide maximum benefits.
Nope. They work separately and independently. E vitamers are not Communists.
Re: Tocotrienols should also be consumed.
Tocotrienols are toxic, especially to the liver.
Re: More recent research shows that tocotrienols may be the most important members of the vitamin E family.
Is that why tocopherols are ubiquitous, and Ma Nature uses tocotrienols so sparingly?
Biotechnologists are already making extensive plans (genetically and financially) to substitute tocotrienols for tocopherols in both plants and animals.
That’s why the propaganda I’m rebutting is coming from an organization dedicated to biotechnology and transhumanism, the Life Extension Foundation, publisher of Life Extension magazine.
Re: Tocotrienols have also been shown to reduce the level of LDL (the “bad” form of cholesterol) and apolipoprotein B,
The only “bad” form of cholesterol is oxidized cholesterol. Just ask 101-year-old lipid expert Fred Kummerow.
Re: This may also explain why vitamin E as found in food is more effective than alpha-tocopherol supplements in reducing death from cardiovascular disease.
Then why is alpha-tocopherol the most predominant form of vitamin E in almonds?
Re: While alpha-tocopherol has long been known as an important antioxidant, research has now shown that the complete vitamin E team is much more effective.
If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge on the Moon to sell you, and it’s made of Hogwarts green cheese. :)
