Cardi-E is an innovative, patent-pending preparation of vitamin E containing a mixture of natural tocopherols, all of which act as antioxidants. Alpha-tocopherol is more protective against reactive oxygen species, while gamma-tocopherol is more protective against reactive nitrogen species (e.g. peroxynitrite). A combination of natural, mixed tocopherols provides the broadest possible antioxidant protection for fat-soluble molecules and organelles.
- Vitamin E protects against damage caused by excess free radicals, especially in cell membranes and other fat-soluble areas of the body.
- There are three significant types of tocopherols: alpha-, gamma- and delta-tocopherol.
- Until recently, alpha-tocopherol was considered the only important type of Vitamin E and almost all Vitamin E preparations contained just alpha-tocopherol. Recent research has shown that a naturallyoccurring mixture of tocopherols offers more antioxidant protection than alpha-tocopherol alone. Rape seed oil contains a healthy mixture of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids.
