Product Overview

Description

  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic

Ultimate-E contains all of the natural isomers of vitamin E. Tocopherols provide protection from free radicals and products of oxygenation, including lipid peroxides and singlet oxygen radicals. Gamma-tocopherol inhibits the enzyme cyclooxygenase, whereas alpha-tocopherol does not appear to have a significant effect on this enzyme. Human studies comparing diets supplemented with both gamma- and alpha-tocopherols (more gamma than alpha) to diets supplemented primarily with alpha-tocopherol found more DNA protection in the mixed-tocopherol group than in the alpha-tocopherol-only group.

Antioxidants such as vitamin E are vital to the overall antioxidant capacity in the blood and tissues. Numerous clinical studies have shown vitamin E is beneficial to the cardiovascular system, and recent studies looking at mixed tocopherols have indicated they have a stronger inhibitory effect on lipid peroxidation than alpha-tocopherol alone, indicating a more potent antioxidant effect of mixed tocopherols. Supplementing with Ultimate-E, with its naturally occurring ratio of tocopherols, is an efficient way to supplement the vitamin E molecules – without the addition of soy oil as a filler.

Thorne Research's Ultimate-E contains pure, undiluted vitamin E. The vitamin E is extracted from a mixture of vegetable oils, including soy oil. However, any potentially allergenic soy residues are removed during the distillation process and, unlike most vitamin E products on the market, Ultimate-E is not diluted with soy oil. Because the tocopherols come from a natural source, the exact tocopherol profile can vary slightly from batch to batch, although extra alpha-tocopherol is added to each batch to standardize the amount of this important tocopherol to 500 IU per capsule.

Suggested Use

Take 1 gelcap one to three times daily or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.

Other Ingredients

Gelatin (bovine), purified water and glycerin (vegetable source) gelcap, medium chain triglyceride oil.

Warnings

Tamper Evident: Use only if bottle is sealed. Store tightly sealed in a cool, dry place.

Perhaps a little too strong for me

Posted by 5265269522079010938 on Mar 15, 2016

I bought the Thorne brand of vitamin E because I trust their products, and vitamin is a fat soluble vitamin, so it hangs around in the body longer and I wanted to make sure I was taking something of high quality. That being said, I would really prefer if this came in a smaller dose (like 200 IU) because taking the 500 IU capsules make me feel nauseated.

Thorne Research, Ultimate -E 60 Gelcaps

Posted by 5645547387759223705 on Oct 14, 2014

I love Thorne products! I have been using them for at least one year, after my Naturopath prescribed several Thorne products for me to use. I feel almost 'normal' , considering the ill health I'd previously suffered. I'm glad I have refused to take chemical off-the counter alternative supplements. Throne research products are worth the wait ( I have to order them from overseas.)
