Jarrow Formulas Gamma E 300 contains Gamma Tocopherol, one of the eight members of the vitamin E family found concentrated in plant seeds and vegetable oils. Typical Vitamin E supplements only offer d-alpha tocopherol, which has been shown to deplete serum gamma tocopherol and alpha tocotrienol.
Gamma tocopherol is especially protective against reactive nitrogen species, free radicals that damage lipids, proteins and DNA. Inside the body, gamma tocopherol is found in high concentrations in the skin, muscle and venous tissue. Each softgel of Gamma E 300 contains more gamma tocopherol than a kilogram of pecans, pistachios, or walnuts.
What causes night blindness?People with night blindness experience poor vision at night or in dimly lit environments, for which the medical term nyctalopia is used.
Although the term “night blindness” implies that you can’t see at night, this isn’t the case. You may just have more difficulty seeing or driving in darkness.
Some types of night blindness are treatable while other types aren’t. Once you know the cause of the problem, you can take steps to correct your vision.
Tocotrienols are the reason why vitamin E is so popular againVitamin E was first discovered in 1922 when it was deduced to be an important dietary factor, necessary for reproduction, hence why it was called “fertility factor.” Only in 1938 the structure of the most common form of vitamin E, alpha tocopherol was fully elucidated.
