Universal Nutrition Vitamin E Formula is a dietary supplement with vitamin E as d,l-alpha tocopheryl acetate, the form with the highest biological activity. Esterification increases significantly the stability of vitamin E. One capsule provides as much as 400 IU of vitamin E.
Vitamin E is a group of fat-soluble compounds which are derivatives of tocotrienol and tocopherol. Tocopherols are of the greatest biological significance due to their function and biological activity. The highest activity is shown by alpha-tocopherol.
Vitamin E demonstrates strong antioxidant activity as an non-enzymatic scavenger of free radicals. By reacting with lipid and peroxide free radicals in biological membranes, serum lipoproteins and adipose tissue, it interrupts their chain reaction and deactivates them. Owing to antioxidant activity, vitamin E protects unsaturated fatty acids and LDL cholesterol against oxidation, stabilises cell membranes, protects mitochondria and liver microsomes and therefore prevents the development of diseases of affluence – some types of cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
Vitamin E slows down the body’s ageing processes. Free radicals, which induce oxidative stress in the body, are largely responsible for ageing. Owing to the stabilisation of cell membranes and improving elasticity of blood vessels, vitamin E protects lipids from damage and oxidation processes. D,L-alpha-tocopheryl acetate is often a component of UV filters because it has a soothing, protective, anti-inflammatory effect and helps treat discolouration.
Vitamin E boosts the oxygenation of bodily cells, improving the body’s energy metabolism. It strengthens and increases the elasticity of blood vessels and inhibits the degradation of erythrocytes. Since it stabilises cell membranes, it protects nerve cells against the processes of degeneration and lipid peroxidation. Vitamin E compounds are used to treat neurodegenerative diseases and dementia which progress with age, among other things, Alzheimer’s disease.
Vitamin E has a positive effect on male fertility. Vitamin E compounds are involved in spermatogenesis – the production and maturation of sperm. They affect also the quality of sperm, increasing its activity and vitality. Vitamin E deficiency decreases the secretion of follicle-stimulating hormone, leading to impaired spermatogenesis and fertility problems. What is more, deficiencies of this vitamin are associated with an increased incidence of prostate cancer.
To sum up, Universal Nutrition Vitamin E Formula is a product with a high dose of stable vitamin E and thus prevents effectively its deficiencies in the body. It is recommended especially to individuals leading an active and stressful lifestyle, exposed to environmental pollution, suffering from inflammation or autoimmune disease and for improving male fertility and as a preventive measure for diseases of affluence.
Vitamin E shows synergistic effects with selenium. Because of that, we should provide the body with adequate levels of this element to increase antioxidant protection.
A fat-rich meal boosts the absorption of vitamin E.
A diet abundant in unsaturated fatty acids (fish, vegetable oils) increases considerably the body’s requirements for vitamin E.

In the food it is present in whole-grain bread, sprout and grains, vegetable oils (soybean, sunflower), soya beans and sunflower seeds, vegetable fat and hen egg yolks.
