The form found most commonly in the body, and has the greatest nutritional importance – is alpha-tocopherol.There are two types of alpha tocopherol – dl-alpha-tocopherol and d-alpha tocopherol. dl-alpha tocopherol, the synthetic form, can be commonly found in nutritional supplements and fortified foods. The dl-alpha tocopherol form is utilized in fortification and supplementation due to its resistance to oxidation which allows for greater shelf-life.1 Kirkland SignatureTMVitamin E 400 IU provides vitamin E in the dl-alpha tocopherol form to help you meet your daily vitamin E needs.Major sources of alpha-tocopherol include vegetable oils (olive, safflower and sunflower oils), nuts, and seeds, which can be calorically dense.
