Product Description

UNIQUE E® Mixed Tocopherols Concentrate (OPTIMUM E COMPLEX)

Available in two sizes — 120-capsule bottle and an "easy travel size" 30-capsule bottle.
Kosher friendly.

Each 700mg beef softgel capsule contains the highest concentration of the complete Vitamin E tocopherol complex — HIGH-Gamma, HIGH-Alpha, with Beta and Delta isomers — completely void of fillers or additives that can turn rancid. This all-natural, PURE Vitamin E concentrate consists of the natural form of Vitamin E as obtained through the diet and as used by the body.

The Science Behind the Product

Vitamin E is a complex of eight molecules that work together synergistically. Taking a Vitamin E supplement with only d-alpha tocopherol instead of the entire mixed tocopherols family of isomers can actually deplete the level of d-gamma tocopherol in the body.

The mainstream medical community only recently recognized the importance of d-gamma tocopherol. But A.C. Grace has noted the importance of d-gamma tocopherol since 1962. Our proprietary formula of concentrated tocopherols is specifically designed to provide the highest biological activity and maximum synergistic benefits of the all-natural complex.

Product Information

There are three general dosage recommendations:
  • Maintenance Dose: 1-3 capsules daily
  • Therapeutic Dose: 1 capsule (400 I.U.) per 40 pounds of body weight
  • Intensive Dose: 4-6 capsules regardless of body weight
General Dosage Rules:
  • Maximum dose 6 capsules (2400 I.U.)—more than this is usually wasted.
  • Entire dosage to be taken ALL AT ONCE.
  • Best effect when dosage is taken WITH a meal.
What about vitamin E and drug interactions?
People using drugs such as blood-thinners, cholesterol medications, blood pressure medications, etc, should always start with 1 capsule (400 I.U.) and work up to optimum dosage over time as needed. Vitamin E can temporarily increase blood pressure in individuals with high blood pressure—monitoring dosage is required. However, it has been reported that, over time, vitamin E supplementation can support healthy blood pressure levels. Always speak with your primary health care provider before adding this or any other dietary supplement to your daily health regimen.* Vitamin E is fat soluble, what about liver toxicity, what level is safe?

Unlike other fat soluble vitamins, vitamin E is NOT accumulated in the liver. This astonishing fact was recently proven in a paper entitled, Vitamin E Trafficking (see references below). The authors report, “the liver does not accumulate ‘toxic’ amounts of vitamin E. Excess vitamin E is not accumulated in the liver, but is excreted, mostly in bile, via a p-glycoprotein (ABCB4)-mediated process.” Speak with your primary health care provider to determine a dosage that is appropriate for your health goals.*

  1. The Unique E formulation is very important

    Posted by C. D. Curtis on 18th Jun 2014

    I have been a Unique E user for many years. It was introduced to me in the Blaylock Wellness Report. Dr. Blaylock explains why all vitamin E formulations are not the same. Buying cheap E's at a discount store will not have the correct formulation and probably not produce the results desired.
