The eight different compounds are four tocopherolsand four tocotrienols (designated as alpha, beta, gamma, and delta). They are found in different places in the plant. The green parts of a plant contain the mostly alpha tocopherol and the seed germ and bran contain mostly tocotrienols. Alpha tocopherol is considered the most absorbable form of Vitamin E.
The tocopherol compounds are sensitive and can be destroyed by light, heat, and oxygen. After buying a Vitamin E supplement, it is important to store it in a cool, dry, dark place.
