Of the 8 types of Vitamin E, only Alpha-tocopherol meets the Recommended Daily Value
Of these 8 types, only Alpha-tocopherol is retained by the human body and plays an important physiological role. A special protein in the liver preferentially maintains blood levels of Alpha-tocopherol over every other form and incorporates it into low-density lipoprotein (LDL), which prevents the oxidation of LDL into harmful cholesterol that helps maintain cardiovascular health.
