Vitamin E

WLA | Oct 17, 2002 10:25 AM

Anyone else catch the article in yesterdays WSJ about vitamin E? Evidently there are several different types, and the most common type that you find in multi-vitamins or plain E caps is Alpha, which is a much weaker type of E and may not confer the same health benefits that scientists see E giving to us. The type that they are now saying is much more potent, and therefore may be better to take, is the Gamma form.

Given the fact that I don't take any vitamins at this time the story is in the academic realm for me, but wanted to pass it along to those that do.
