E-400 (Mixed Tocopherols) Overview
Vitamin E is one of the most important antioxidants for your body. Specifically, as a fat-soluble antioxidant, it can provide a powerful defense for cell membranes and other lipids in your body. Unprotected cell membranes can be damaged by peroxidation reactions, which can result in breakdown of cells. Most normal diets don't provide enough Vitamin E for you to receive the full protective benefits.

The main form of Vitamin E in this supplement is d-alpha tocopherol, regarded as the most bioavailable form.
