14) This adverse effect may have been due to alpha-tocopherol-induced gamma-tocopherol
depletion, resulting in a deficiency of the natriuretic hormone, gamma-CEHC.
, stigmasterol and beta-sitosterol increased along fermentation process.
They also had a 13% greater concentration of delta-tocopherol than those of group D, and 11% greater gamma-tocopherol
concentration than those of group C.
or combinations of vitamin E forms induce cell death in human prostate cancer cells by interrupting sphingolipid synthesis.
The results were "somewhat opposite" for plasma gamma-tocopherol
levels at baseline.
on the other hand, functions in the scavenging of reactive nitrogen species, the resulting product being 5-Nitro-gamma-toeopherol.
and its major metabolite, in contrast to [alpha]-tocopherol, inhibit cyclooxygenase activity in macrophages and epithelial cells.
In laboratory experiments, the gamma-tocopherol
form of vitamin E destroyed cells taken from the brains of mice.
Vitamin E refers to two main compounds: alpha-tocopherol, found at high levels in sunflower oil and wheat germ oil, and gamma-tocopherol
, found at high levels in soybean and corn oils.
Vitamin E is found in whole foods in the form of gamma-tocopherol
and is a powerful antioxidant, which is why there is a great deal of interest in vitamin E supplementation.
In these mixtures, gamma-tocopherol
The Penn State study showed an increase in lutein and gamma-tocopherol
in the blood was related to a decrease in oxidized LDL (bad) cholesterol, when pistachios were eaten daily, thereby contributing to a reduced risk of heart disease.
