Note

Natural forms of vitamin E bound to krebs cycle intermediates such as acetates or succinates are more advantageous as they are more stable and highly bio-available. Look for d-alpha tocopheryl succinate as this is a natural form. The prefix dl- indlicates a synthetic vitamin E. Interestingly, aspirin and vitamin E appear to work synergistically against the risk of cardiovascular disease.
