NATURAL VITAMIN E vs SYNTHETIC VITAMIN E

Did you know that the consumption of Vitamin E has many benefits?

Vitamin E is essential for the proper functioning of the body. It is essential to keep the nervous and cardiovascular systems, muscles and retinas healthy, among other functions.

Vitamin E, or tocopherol, belongs to the group of fat-soluble vitamins. It has a potent antioxidant effect, which helps to keep the body healthy and delay its aging. It also prevents chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular conditions, cancer and cataracts.

But, what is the difference between natural and synthetic vitamin E?

Vitamins of natural origin are those that have been extracted directly from organic sources, whereas synthetic vitamins are those obtained via chemical synthesis or fermentation procedures. Synthetic vitamins copy the way natural vitamins work in the body.

Supplements:

  • Supplements containing natural Vitamin E (RRR-α-tocopherol):

IU RRR-α-tocopherol x 0.67 = mg RRR-α-tocopherol

Example: 100 IU of natural Vitamin E provides 67 mg of RRR-α-tocopherol

  • Supplements containing synthetic Vitamin E (all-rac-α-tocopherol):

IU of all-rac-α-tocopherol  x 0.45 = mg RRR-α-tocopherol

Example: 100 IU of synthetic vitamin E provides 45 mg of RRR-α-tocopherol

According to a study by Oregon State University (USA), it has been shown that 100 IU of natural Vitamin E provides 67 mg of RRR α-tocopherol, while 100 IU of synthetic Vitamin E provides 45 mg of RRR α-tocopherol.
