Vitamin E contributes to the protection of the body’s cells from oxidative stress caused by reactive compounds called ‘free radicals’ and this protective role has put vitamin E at the centre of worldwide research. Lamberts® supplies vitamin E in its natural form of d-alpha tocopherol, as this is the form in which it occurs in foods. Research shows that natural vitamin E has a higher biological activity, and is absorbed and retained more readily by the body than synthetic vitamin E. The cheaper synthetic form is called dl-alpha tocopherol and is the form most commonly found in many of the ‘high street’ vitamin E products. Lamberts® Vitamin E is manufactured in the UK in premises that operate to stringent pharmaceutical standards of GMP.
