Tocopherols, tocotrienols & CoQ10*
- Helps support healthy blood pressure and cholesterol
- Supports optimal prostate and cognitive health
- The first complete E-complex in North America
- Contains eight vitamers and coenzyme Q10
Introduced in 2001, Total E™ is the first complete, balanced, natural E-complex that contains only natural ingredients and provides all eight distinct vitamin E molecules that make up the vitamin E complex. The formula also contains coenzyme Q10, which helps increase the body’s antioxidant activity and supports cardiovascular health, neurological health, skin health, and more.
Vitamins are very important for helping to maintain the body’s health, and each vitamin has its own properties and functions for the human body. Vitamin E is often used to help keep skin healthy and youthful. It also supports blood health, vision, the reproductive system, and brain, and it is especially important due to its role as an antioxidant as one of five components of the body’s antioxidant network.
Vitamin E can be found naturally in some foods; it is added to others, and it is also available as a supplement. The heart health benefits of the other tocopherols and tocotrienols cannot be ignored. In fact, some evidence suggests that gamma-tocopherol and gamma tocotrienol are involved in helping to support healthy blood pressure and cholesterol. In addition, gamma-tocopherol has been found to promote optimal prostate and cognitive health.
AOR’s Total E™ promotes healthy and youthful skin, as well as providing support for blood pressure, vision, the reproductive system, and the brain, all in a convenient softgel.
Total E™ is the first truly balanced, complete E-complex supplement. Vitamin E is not just alpha-tocopherol, and not just “mixed tocopherols” either. Total E™ includes eight distinct vitamin E molecules (or “vitamers”): four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Different members of the vitamin E family have unique functions not shared by other E vitamers. Coenzyme Q10 is included for additional support.*
AOR™ guarantees that all ingredients have been declared on the label. Made without wheat, gluten, corn, nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, mustard, dairy, eggs, fish, or shellfish.
Take one softgel daily with a fat-containing meal, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner. An extra softgel should be taken for each 200 IU of alpha-tocopherol in any other supplements you may be taking.
Consult a health care practitioner before use if you’re pregnant, lactating, have a medical condition, or if you’re taking any medication (e.g. blood pressure medication or blood thinners like warfarin). Keep out of reach of children.
