A unique, comprehensive approach to cardiovascular health and healthy blood pressure.
Big Sandy, TX –October 1, 2013 – A.C. Grace Company today announced the introduction of UNIQUE OMEGA E+.™ Designed by leading nutrition and medical experts, UNIQUE OMEGA E+™ provides a novel, strategic formulation of omega-3 fatty acids with natural, safe compounds that accentuate and expand its benefits.
Using knowledge, experience and historical successes over their 50+ years as a family-owned vitamin E business, A.C. Grace Company's product development team worked hand-in-hand with Dr. Mark Houston -- Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and Director of the Hypertension Institute and Vascular Biology at Saint Thomas Hospital, Nashville, TN -- and nationally recognized leader in the research and education of cardiovascular health.
In a recent discussion at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine Conference in Boston, Jim Capps, President of A. C. Grace Company commented, “our team felt compelled to focus on one of the key areas doctors and patients alike recognize as important in managing their whole health goals -- that of supporting healthy inflammation cycles."
UNIQUE OMEGA E+™ was formulated with complementary and synergistic ingredients intended to help manage balanced inflammatory responses, provide improved lipid profile and strong wide-spectrum antioxidant protection to support cardiovascular health and normal blood pressure.
Added Capps, “this unique formulation supplies marine omega-3 fatty acids in their natural triglyceride form, vitamin E as natural tocopherols rich in gamma-tocopherol plus tocotrienols, CoQ10 and vitamin D3 specially formulated for enhanced absorption and natural carotenoids rich in lycopene and astaxanthin. ”
Decades of collaboration with doctors in all fields of expertise, along with recent industry support of the efficacy of vitamin E in its natural form, provided the catalyst for the company's product team to create this product where the objective is achieved by strategic formulation of omega-3 fatty acids with safe, natural compounds which attenuate their benefits with research supported synergistic and complementary mechanisms.
“We have received tremendous support for this new product by leaders in the medical industry, many stating they had been hoping for this UNIQUE mix of ingredients," said Capps. “We are very pleased that our team, along with Dr. Mark Houston, are able to make it available to the dietary supplement industry.”
A. C. Grace Company has 50+ years of history providing pure vitamin E products to the market and was the first company to introduce a high gamma-tocopherol mixed tocopherols (in 1962) when most companies were offering alpha-tocopherols only products.
Five decades later, this premier E product is still considered the best in the industry by tens-of-thousands of healthcare professionals, scientists and health-conscious consumers.
In the March 2012 issue of WholeFoods Magazine, the editors published a feature on the 50th Anniversary of A.C. Grace Company.

The A.C. Grace Company, located in Big Sandy, TX, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. A.C. Grace got its start under unfortunate circumstances; founder Roy Erickson suffered three heart attacks in 1962, and was told by doctors after the third just to go home and wait for the next one. As a young man in his 50s, Erickson thought this advice was unacceptable, so, let down by his doctors, he set out to discover a heart healthy aid on his own.
Erickson came from a health-minded family, his father being a physician and surgeon and Erickson with three years of premedical school under his own belt. He understood the importance of being educated and knowledgeable, and read up on vitamin E in the book Your Key to a Healthy Heart, by Herbert Bailey. He contacted experts, among them brothers Wilfrid and Evan Shute, two of the first doctors to use vitamin E to aid in heart conditions, to help him develop what eventually became A.C. Grace’s flagship all-natural vitamin E supplement.
After development, Erickson had such faith in his product that he tested it out on himself before heading back to the doctor’s office for a check-up. His doctor was surprised to see Erickson’s heart health managed, and observe his increased stamina and energy. That’s when UNIQUE E®, A.C. Grace’s sole product for 45 years, was launched.
Forty years later in 2002 at the age of 93, Erickson died with a healthy heart. Since that time, the next generation of family has upheld the high standards Erickson set in place when he founded A.C. Grace 50 years ago. Since its start, A.C. Grace has sought to be the foremost authority and expert on all elements of vitamin E, quickly setting the standard of quality and effectiveness within the supplement industry. “We believe our products are some of the highest, if not the highest, quality vitamin E supplements on the market. Our products are the ‘natural’ form of vitamin E, not the synthetic form found in many stores today,” says Scott Smith, director of marketing and operations. “We’ve surrounded ourselves with the leaders in their fields when it comes to E complex.”
And these experts aren’t keeping their vitamin E knowledge to themselves; the company is doing everything it can to spread what it knows about vitamin E to health professionals and patients alike.
Education is just as important to A.C. Grace as having a pure product. “We believe in the purity of things,” says Smith. “Most other folks in the nutraceutical world like to mix unnatural antioxidants or other nutrients in there and we don’t…We want to get more specific on individualized care and conditions and knowing the dosage and mixture of those homologues to best benefit the user.”
The company’s products contain no additives or fillers, and are extracted from their source without including any source oil. Such pure products can only come from research and knowledge that other companies tend to put aside, says Smith. At A.C. Grace, work will not go forward on a product until in-depth research and scientific studies have been conducted, or before being passed on to a university to be tested and possibly improved upon before finally rolling it out.
Along with working beside university students and teachers, A.C. Grace partners with practitioners across a wide range of specialties to educate and put their products in the hands of those that can understand and use them properly in their practices. This is what Smith calls “doctor-tested: application-based science.” “If you look at trades, a lot of indication from the science community and the [medical&91; community are touting evidence-based science. We say evidence-based science is relative based upon three questions: what type of E is used, what is the condition treated, and what dosage is used. The real, key data is in the application in the field across medical disciplines,” says Smith. “The real successes have been in the front lines with the medical professionals that have taken the time to learn from their patients.”
Doctors can only perform as well as they’re taught, says Smith, so to ensure a well-informed medical community, A.C. Grace goes on lecture tours to give practitioners and new doctors the tools and resources they need to think out of the box in their own practices while informing their patients of their options. Patient understanding is just as important to A.C. Grace as educating their medical counterparts. “No matter the protocol,” says Smith, “it’s imperative to enable patients to not only choose their healthcare, but also to understand what’s happening to them. We’ve educated for 50 years, and we’re going to continue to educate.”
According to Smith, Erickson formulated UNIQUE E® with a higher gamma-tocopherol content to be similar to foods in nature. This was different than what the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated in its daily dietary requirements. In 1968, the agency released the RDA requirement for vitamin E, saying that only the alpha-tocopherol portion of the eight vitamin E compounds was beneficial to the body. “More and more, recent studies have shown that a full natural mixed-tocopherols concentrate, with high-gamma, provides maximum benefit compared to alpha-tocopherol only,” says Smith. “This validates what the company has known for 50 years through doctor and customer feedback. Furthermore, recent studies have stated that the results show alpha-tocopherol alone, especially the synthetic form, may be damaging to the body.”
In keeping with the tradition of being ahead of the game, in 2008, A.C. Grace released UNIQUE E® Tocotrienols ahead of other vitamin E competitors in order to provide a wider spectrum of benefits with the eight vitamin E compounds. Then, in 2010, the company expanded into a secondary line of partner products under the brand UNIQUE C.A.R.E.® (Complementary and Alternative Resources for Vitamin E). Since then, other A.C. Grace products have been introduced, some even winning awards. UNIQUE E® Natural Moisturizer won high honors from the Best of Natural Beauty Awards and Best of Expo 2010 awards in their skin care categories.
The A.C. Grace Company has taken pride in its vitamin E products for 50 years and plans to be around for at least another 50, learning and growing along with any new developments to continue staying ahead in the industry. “We want to be known as the E specialist,” says Smith. “We want to be the best, the most knowledgeable on one nutrient that has confused most of the health care community.” WF

San Rafael, Ca (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
Published in the October edition of the Archives of Internal Medicine, this research was called the Iowa Woman's Health Study consisting of a questionnaire review of post-menopausal women living in Iowa. The idea was to see if taking vitamin supplements reduced mortality rates in older women.
“This study supposedly shows that taking vitamin supplements actually shortens one’s lifespan,” said Dr. Shames…”Don't believe it. This is a flawed study.”
Dr. Shames continued, “Unfortunately, the mainstream media has seized upon some of the study’s erroneous conclusions in a manner best described as yellow journalism. “
When asked what the flaws were in the study, Dr. Shames indicated the study showed that taking vitamins C, D, E, and calcium, alone or in combination, was moderately associated with longer survival. Other nutrients, like strong doses of iron and vitamin A, however, had a major detrimental effect. So the study authors combined all of these effects to get a meaningless “average” of a mild detrimental effect of “taking vitamins in general”.
“Another flaw was how the researchers controlled for specific factors like weight, diet, disease, smoking other factors. For instance, a sizable percentage of the study group were on hormones (including the hazardous non bio-identical combo of Premarin and Provera). Likely the health conscious hormone-taking women were more likely to be also taking vitamins. The study lumped them all together.”
Dr. Shames maintains that one of the biggest flaws in the study is the doubtful validity of self-reported questionnaires, without verification controls. According to him, the more reliable WHI Study (Women/s Health Initiative) used good validation techniques. This present study did not. “In addition”, Dr. Shames continued, “this study did not take into account the quality or the source of the vitamins mentioned. The actual benefit of vitamins has long been known to be reduced by the adverse effects of additives, and by-products found in cheaper brands. What type of vitamins do you suppose most of the elderly ladies of Iowa were taking?
“It was already quite clear before this study that older women should not be taking iron; or that no one should be taking high doses of vitamin A. To now utilize that older news to discourage sensible taking of beneficial vitamins is a big mistake.”
“Today’s consumers are confronted with so-called “scientific” reports that question the value of some dietary supplements,” said Dr. Shames. "In my view, many of these reports seem purposely deceptive, with the intent of falsifying the true conclusions of the overwhelming number of studies that confirm the benefits of taking vitamins. In this case, the economic beneficiaries will be pharmaceutical companies who can expect increased sales of prescription drugs to those who fall for the latest media hype. As has been the case of previous studies conducted by mainstream doctors, the potencies of the nutrients evaluated in this negative report are far different than what knowledgeable health conscious consumers take on a daily basis. So while the media was running headlines like “Taking Vitamins May Shorten Your Life”, the report the headline was based on omitted most of the vitamin studies that should have been included. This obvious bias rendered the findings meaningless. Of 815 studies considered, only 67 were included for the meta-analysis.”
Dr. Shames continued, “In today’s Western world, a large percentage of the population fails to ingest optimal potencies of many essential nutrients. As you will read in part two of this report, a shocking majority (93-96%) of people of people who don’t supplement with vitamin E are deficient in vitamin E. This negative report attacking supplements is fatally flawed because it:
“The final shocker is that this meta-analysis report attacking vitamin A, beta-carotene and vitamin E is not new. It was in fact published last year and drew a lot of criticism for the obvious flaws it contains. Perhaps the reason this story was quickly removed from media websites on the day it appeared is that the broadcasters realized they were not relaying “news”, but instead regurgitating anti-supplement propaganda.”
“Needless to say, even this brief exposure was a public relations score for pharmaceutical interests, as millions of people worldwide may be frightened away from supplements that could reduce their future need for expensive prescription drugs.”
When asked what we might learn from this, Shames was very clear. “How about concluding that it's not very smart to get our health information from the mainstream media. This is an age of scare headlines or business driven news. The erroneous conclusions from this latest flawed vitamin study were used to grab your attention, rather than truly inform.”
Dr. Shames’ final words of advice: “The main thing to remember is that you need to be extremely skeptical with health claims that are media reported. Instead find a source of health information that you can better rely upon.”

BIG SANDY, TX, February 10, 2012 – A.C. Grace Company announced the introduction of a NEW, more user-friendly and informative website for its customers and interested readers to learn about Vitamin E and the UNIQUE E® brand that has been so recognized and requested for 50 years.
“As we celebrate our 50th Anniversary providing the BEST Vitamin E Products -- we also wanted to provide our customers with the BEST shopping experience online,” said Scott Smith, Director Marketing/Operations for A.C. Grace. “The redesigned website provides vitally important information on the truth of how the right kind of Vitamin E has historically shown fantastic benefits when used appropriately in the human diet.”
“With so many people depending on the Internet for information and product purchases, we felt it would give one more way to get valuable information to those who so desperately want and need it, while making their shopping experience fast, easy and streamlined.”
The new website at www.acgrace.com is also a great tool for introducing NEW UNIQUE E® products to existing and new consumers. The company used its new website launch to announce the reformulation of its award-winning UNIQUE E® Natural Moisturizer in two sizes. The product was originally only offered in a 1-ounce size.
“Our customers asked for a larger jar for them to keep in their home while they carried the 1-ounce ‘travel-size’ pump bottle with them in their purse,” said Smith, “We appreciate our customers’ suggestions and now have a 1.7-ounce jar available, along with our freshly redesigned website.”
A.C. Grace Company, located in Big Sandy, Texas, was founded by Roy Erickson in 1962. The company manufactures UNIQUE E®, the purest form of natural vitamin E products available today, and a complete line of complementary vitamin E products. Their multi-E scientists and doctors understand the synergy of ‘evidence-based science’ along with ‘application-based science’ for a powerful perspective in achieving maximum benefit through supplementation and topical application.
BIG SANDY, TX (February 10, 2012) – From the seed of a fateful medical diagnosis five decades ago, an innovative company built on dedication to the purity found in nature has grown to become the leader in the vitamin E industry.
The A.C. Grace Company, makers of UNIQUE E® and other complementary vitamin E products, was founded in 1962 by Roy Erickson, a leading sales professional whose fast-paced career was abruptly interrupted at age 53 by not one…not two… but three heart attacks in the same year.
Handed what amounted to a death sentence by his doctors, Erickson applied the same determination and energy to finding a solution that he had applied to his sales career. The son of a physician, and a pharmaceutical representative with three years’ medical school training of his own, Erickson produced research that suggested the dietary benefits of vitamin E.
After formulating his own product, Erickson not only used it to supplement his own diet, but he established the A.C. Grace Company so that he could share it with others.
That product, UNIQUE E®, remains unparalleled in the vitamin E industry.
“Our product is the natural form of vitamin E, not the synthetic form found in many stores today,” said Scott Smith, Director Marketing/Operations. “We believe in purity.”
That natural form is obtained through the company’s proprietary processes that enable them to extract only pure vitamin E oil from natural sources.
From the beginning, Erickson sought to share his knowledge—and his product—with professionals in the medical field. Because of this, A.C. Grace is held in high esteem by physicians and other health practitioners around the world.
“For 50 years, A. C. Grace Company has been providing doctors and consumers with products that are the standard in the vitamin E industry,” said Smith. “Our multi-E scientists and doctors understand the synergy of ‘evidence-based science’ along with ‘application-based science’ for a powerful perspective in achieving maximum benefit through supplementation and topical application.”
In recent years, A.C. Grace has expanded its product line to include vitamin E supplements in alternate forms, along with skin creams, moisturizers and other products designed to provide natural benefits for supporting common physical health goals like cardiovascular wellness, healthy cellular membrane function and integrity, and many other aspects of whole health.
Roy Erickson lived 40 vigorous and energetic years after that fateful diagnosis in 1962, all of which were dedicated to sharing his knowledge and belief in the benefits of pure, natural vitamin E with the world.
A.C. Grace Company continues to share that mission and expand Roy’s vision “to consistently provide our customers with products that show promising benefits to the body when taken correctly, in the correct dosage and for the right reasons.”
A.C. Grace Company, located in Big Sandy, Texas, was founded by Roy Erickson in 1962. The company manufactures UNIQUE E®, the purest form of natural vitamin E available today, and a complete line of complementary vitamin E products. Complete information is available at www.acgrace.com.

Big Sandy, TX - 22, March, 2010 – A.C. Grace Company today announced that its UNIQUE E® NATURAL MOISTURIZER product has been awarded top honors in the Skin Care Category from both Best of Natural Beauty Awards and Best of Expo 2010 Awards.
"Our Natural Moisturizer was four years in the making as we testing multiple formulas," says Lyn Capps, President of A.C. Grace. "In keeping with our mission to provide PURE, NATURAL products to the market, we wanted to make sure that all of the ingredients in this product were food grade, natural products that would benefit the skin health of our customers who have been using our UNIQUE E® line of vitamin E products for almost 50 years, and new customers who understand the benefits of Vitamin E in their diets and on their skin."
"The key base ingredient in UNIQUE E® NATURAL MOISTURIZER is 10% (by volume) of our PREMIER product, UNIQUE E® MIXED TOCOPHEROLS, which is a non-synthetic, natural form of High gamma-, High alpha-tocopherol concentrate including all four tocopherol isomers (alpha, beta, gamma and delta). The unadulterated PURITY of the Vitamin E oil keeps the ingredients from separating like other cosmetic products that use lesser quality Vitamin E," Capps continued. "It is our understanding that this product contains the highest amount of Vitamin E in any cosmetic product to date!"
The ingredients in UNIQUE E® NATURAL MOISTURIZER use a proprietary matrix-structure-formulation created specifically to bind the emollient ingredients with the antioxidant rich Vitamin E, and provide time-release 'hang-time' on the skin of up to seven hours. This matrix structure provides four key areas of natural benefit to the skin: 1) moisturizing; 2) absorption; 3) elasticity; and, 4) oxygenation.*
Along with the recognized benefits to the skin from topical application of PURE Vitamin E products, clinical studies show powerful correlation to oral ingestion of Vitamin E along with application to the skin -- benefits from the 'inside-out' and the 'outside in!' *
"We are thrilled to be recognized by our peers in the cosmeceuticals industry, just as we have been for decades in the dietary supplement industry," concluded Capps. "We just want to make sure our core of dedicated, knowledgeable customers can continue knowing that A.C. Grace Company will always provide the best products available!"
A.C. Grace Company was founded 1962 and is well-known as the Standard in the Vitamin E industry. They have been providing thousands of healthcare professionals in all fields of practice, their patients and tens of thousands of consumers worldwide, a line of PURE Multi-E products for nearly a half-century.

Big Sandy, TX – A.C. Grace Company announced the introduction of UNIQUE OMEGA™ Krill Oil – containing PURE oil from Antarctic Krill, providing an optimal combination of Omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids and critical antioxidants to support heart and joint health. Unlike fish oil, the Omega-3 fatty acids in UNIQUE OMEGA™ Krill Oil are absorbed and carried to the body’s cells in phospholipid form. Phospholipids form the structural basis of cell membranes and are effectively utilized by the body.*
“Our customers, including doctors worldwide who have been using and recommending our UNIQUE E® Vitamin E products for nearly a half-century, asked us to provide an UNIQUE Omega product that they could include in their suggested supplementation protocols,” says Lyn Capps, President of A.C. Grace. “Our product research team found that PURE oil extracted from the Antarctic Krill species Euphausia Superba is rich in Omega-3, mainly in the phospholipid form, and has been found to have antioxidant potency up to 48 times higher than fish oil in terms of ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) values.”*
“The inclusion of UNIQUE OMEGA™ Krill Oil to our product line fits perfectly into our long-standing dedication to PURITY and natural-source products for the maximum benefits to the user. We are thrilled to be able to provide this product to our customers!” Capps continued.
Benefits attributed to Omega-3 include significant support for cardiovascular health and joint health and also support for: brain and central nervous system development, cognitive functioning, and skin health. Research indicates that even more Omega-3 benefits for individuals will be identified and that greater intake can support whole health.*
In addition, A.C. Grace Company supports the cooperative for sustainable Krill harvesting and management in the Antarctic Ocean. A patented Eco-Harvesting fishing system allows the fishing equipment to remain under water while a continuous stream of water flows through the hose, bringing the Krill live and fresh directly into the factory vessel, which allows for processing of fresh raw material with superior product quality.
“I beta-tested UNIQUE OMEGA™ Krill Oil and experienced results never experienced with standard fish oil Omega-3 products,” stated Jim Harper, President of The Road Back, and author of 13 health and wellness books . “We plan to include this fantastic product in our protocols and congratulate A.C. Grace Company for expanding their product line outside of the Vitamin E market. We know their products are the best available.”

Leading Vitamin E company provides NEW findings based on Application Based Science to support the use of Vitamin E!
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) 25, December, 2009 – A.C. Grace Company, producers of UNIQUE E® products, known as the highest quality Vitamin E supplements available, sponsored two scientists specializing in their fields of Vitamin E research in workshops at the 17th Annual World Anti-Aging Congress and Exposition put on by A4M in Las Vegas, Dec. 10-12.
“Our goal was to provide NEW findings based on Application Based Science to support the use of vitamin E with focus on the TYPE of vitamin E to use, DOSAGE to use, and USE (oral or topical), to enable doctors and nutritionists address condition specific health issues,” stated Lyn Capps, President of A.C. Grace Company.
“We were happy to present two speakers at this year’s show: Barrie Tan, PhD, who spoke about the effectiveness of Annatto Tocotrienols working cooperatively with Mixed Tocopherols to provide the full-spectrum of benefits Vitamin E can offer; and Robert Stuart, PhD, who discussed extensive tests carried out to show how Natural Vitamin E works faster and more effectively than synthetic forms of Vitamin E as it carries across the blood-brain barrier.”*
“The interest in Annatto Tocotrienols and PURE, NATURAL Vitamin E products is higher this year than in previous years,” said Capps, “it seemed like everyone attending the show came by our booth to discuss our product line of UNIQUE Vitamin E supplements.”
Since 1962, A.C. Grace has been committed to the study and advancement of the benefits of Vitamin E. Vitamin E has been shown to support a healthy aging process by providing substantial antioxidant support in older individuals and by promoting healthy focus and memory. It also has been shown to help maintain the integrity of cellular function and enhance immune function in the elderly. A growing number of practitioners are becoming aware that not all Vitamin E supplements are created equal, and there are many factors to consider when choosing which Vitamin E is best.*
A.C. Grace Company offers five specific Vitamin E products that meet the high standard UNIQUE E® is known for: UNIQUE E® Mixed Tocopherols Concentrate, UNIQUE E® Mixed Tocopherols Concentrate Oil, UNIQUE E® Tocotrienols and UNIQUE E® Natural Moisturizer. The fifth product was pre-launch tested at the show this year -- UNIQUE E® Omega Krill Oil, a pure Antarctic Krill oil which uses a patented technology allowing processing to be done right on the ship, thus providing the most pure product.
When asked why UNIQUE E® is considered the best, Capps responded, “Simply put . . . IT WORKS!”
Big Sandy, TX -- June 22, 2009 – A.C. Grace Company today announced the introduction of UNIQUE E® Natural Moisturizer – formulated using ALL-NATURAL ingredients including 10% (by-volume) High-Gamma UNIQUE E® Mixed Tocopherols Concentrate – their PREMIER product. Pure High-Gamma Vitamin E is known to be a powerful antioxidant to support ongoing cellular repair for protecting and maintaining the health of your skin!*
Mixed Tocopherols work synergistically in the body and in the cells when they contain high amounts of gamma- and alpha-tocopherols along with the beta and delta isomers. Receive the same Vitamin E health benefits you receive internally by applying directly to your skin!*
“For years our customers have been using our mixed tocopherols oil directly on their skin to moisturize, smooth the appearance of fine lines, and support the skin’s regeneration process,” says Jim Capps, General Manager of A.C. Grace. “This new Natural Moisturizer is five years in the making – we wanted to provide our customers (who understand the essential value of Vitamin E in the body and on the skin) with a product containing the highest amount of Vitamin E in the cream.”*
“Over the past few decades many cosmetics companies have had problems stabilizing Vitamin E in their creams. We recognized their problem to be the type of Vitamin E they used – usually a synthetic form that contained “other” oils which would separate from the cream.”
The UNIQUE E® product line has always been NATURAL (not synthetic) and has never contained ANY fillers of any kind. When A.C. Grace Company produced their NEW Moisturizer with that unadulterated Vitamin E oil, they used a proprietary matrix structure, never before developed, that helps keep the E from de-emulsifying to evenly disperse in the cream. This matrix creates a 4-stage time-release absorption that provides up to eight hours of moisture retention.
UNIQUE E® Natural Moisturizer contains natural ingredients that help nurture the skin, assist in creating a smooth feel to your skin and will not clog your pores due to the non-synthetic nature of the ingredients.
A.C. Grace Company was founded 1962 and is well-known as the Standard in the Vitamin E industry. They have been providing thousands of healthcare professionals in all fields of practice, their patients and consumers worldwide, a line of PURE Multi-E products for nearly a half-century.

Vitamin E is the body's naturally occurring lubricant as well as a very powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals in the body. Adequate amounts of vitamin E are vital to support heart health, maintain healthy antioxidant status in the body, and promote overall whole health.*
Coordinating Producer of Life and Leisure Television, Michael Richards added, “Consumers are constantly being sold products claiming to be Vitamin E but most times, they are purchasing low grade products that have up to 50% fillers than actual Vitamin E. My goal was to find a company that is providing top-of-the-line products and my search ended when I found AC Grace. I am pleased to feature them on our show and share their excellent products with our viewers.
