Vitamin E

Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a naturally occurring vitamin and is important as an antioxidant in the body; however, too much Vitamin E can cause health effects in animals and humans. Thus, it is important to know the amount of Vitamin E in the diet. Vitamin E can also be manufactured and is termed synthetic Vitamin E. Chemically, there is no difference between natural and synthetic, but there is a difference in how the body utilizes the vitamin.
