Dr. Wright has always cautioned patients to avoid using the synthetic “dl-alpha” form of vitamin E. Every time you hear about a study where vitamin E is found to be useless or harmful, a little digging will reveal that researchers used the dl-alpha form.
Bad idea. Horrible idea! It’s junk, pure and simple.
The best way to supplement with vitamin E is to look for the full spectrum of eight E forms. Four are called tocopherols (alpha, beta, gamma, and delta), and the other four are tocotrienols (also alpha, beta, gamma, and delta).
Finding supplements of “mixed tocopherols” is fairly easy. You might have to do some searching to find the eight forms combined in one supplement (sometimes called “full spectrum”), but it will be well worth it.
