Smile Hi, I'm new here! - ? about New Chapter

Just wanted to introduce myself, so howdy from gray and cloudy southern California!

Now for a question about New Chapter. I was in my local health food store and was looking for a broad spectrum food based Vitamin E supplement, preferably organic. The sales guy with the cool dreadlocks showed my New Chapter's E Food complex - It's expensive as @$%# but has the alpha, beta, delta and gamma tocopherols + the other 4 vitamin e things, alpha beta delta and gamma tricopherols - I'd never even HEARD of tricopherols, what are they?

Has anyone heard of this brand? Reading the ingredients, this really looks like good stuff!

TIA!

Re: Hi, I'm new here! - ? about New Chapter

Vitamin-E has 8 different parts or isomers.The Tocopherols and the Tocotrienols.Most Vitamin-E is alpha Tocopherol which are now finding out that we need all a isomers or Alpha, Beta, Delta, Gamma as these work in unison to help in oxidation control in fatty acids or cell membranes.I myself take the mixed Tocopherols as i feel these are fine but if you have heart disease then adding the Tocotienols could add to the protective factor.

Thanks for the response 6 - Are you familiar with New Chapter at all? This is my first purchase of this brand - it's awfully expensive and I'm trying to justify the cost

Sorry athena as i have never used New Chapter at all. I like the ''Now'' brand products as they are very inexpensive and you can find them at the health food store. I believe 200 softgels at 400 I.U. of the Mixed Tocopherols are about $10.00....
