Have you always wanted to know the difference between nature-derived and natural Vitamin E? Find out which one best suits your lifestyle!
What is Vitamin E?
Vitamin E serves the body in different ways. This fat-soluble nutrient, found in many foods like nuts, vegetable oils, and green veggies, acts as an antioxidant that helps defend cells from free radical-caused damage like air pollution and UV rays from the sun. It can also shield the immune system from invading bacteria and viruses. In addition, it can expand blood vessels to help prevent blood clots.
Vitamin E has eight kinds of chemical forms (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocopherols and tocotrienols) that each has differing levels of biological activity.
So what’s the difference between nature-derived Vitamin E and natural Vitamin E?
The most obvious difference between the two types is where Vitamin E is sourced. dL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate or nature-derived Vitamin E comes from petrochemicals. Meanwhile, d-Alpha Tocopherol or natural Vitamin E is made out of natural nutrients from vegetable oils, nuts, grains, etc.
d-Alpha Tocopherol is considered to be the most active type of natural Vitamin E that can meet the body’s requirements. Due to its natural molecular structure, it can be easily transported to other body tissues to be used for other important functions. Meanwhile, dL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate is less bioavailable, and is, therefore, less potent of the two. Nature-derived Vitamin E is laboratory-made and is generally non-toxic.
d-Alpha Tocopherol (Myra 400E) contains a powerful Vitamin E that helps give healthy skin from within. It is a powerful antioxidant that helps remove harmful free radicals and promote cell and tissue renewal of the skin, lungs, muscles, and liver.
Choosing the right Vitamin E for me
Choosing which Myra vitamin variant to take depends on your age or condition. It is best to consult your doctor who is in the best position to advise what is most suitable based on your age, health status, and nutritional needs. dL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (Myra 300E) costs P8 SRP per capsule and d-Alpha Tocopherol (Myra 400E) costs P12 SRP per capsule.
If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
