Carlson Labs E-GEMS 400 IU, 90 softgels

Carlson Labs E-GEMS are golden gelatin gems containing concentrated natural-source vitamin E oil, d-alpha tocopheryl acetate. The vitamin E is derived from soybean oil, and synthetic vitamin E is never used.

It also contains the antioxidant values of other tocopherols, including d-beta, d-delta, and d-gamma tocopherols, and in significant amounts. Carlson Labs E-GEMS 400 IU contain potent antioxidants that protect our bodies from free radical damage and keep us healthy.

Vitamin E is a major antioxidant and the primary defense against lipid peroxidation. It is particularly important in protecting the body's cells from free radical/oxidative damage.  These protective benefits are achievable with supplemental intakes higher than what is normally consumed in the average diet.

Vitamin E is necessary for structural and functional maintenance of skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle. It also assists in the formation of red blood cells and helps to maintain stores of certain vitamins & minerals.

It has a positive effect on immune health, protects against the oxidative damage that can lead to heart disease, cancer, help relieve symptoms of dementia including alzheimer's disease, and is helpful in prevent some diabetes-related damage, especially to the eyes.

Carlson Labs Excipients:

  • Binder: Holds the ingredients in a tablet together. One of three types of binders are used as required: Plant fiber known as cellulose, acacia gum from the stem of the Acacia tree or brazil wax from the leaves of a palm tree.

  • Filler: Fills out the size and shape of a tablet or capsule making it practical to produce and convenient for the consumer to use. Plant cellulose (pure plant filler) is the filler of choice in Carlson tablets or hard gelatin capsules. Soybean or safflower oil is used in soft gelatin capsules.

  • Disintegrant: Expands when wet causing the tablet to break apart in the digestive tract releasing the nutrients for absorption. We prefer to use plant cellulose as a disintegrant.

  • Lubricant: Prevents ingredients from clumping together and from sticking to the tablet punches or capsule filler. Common minerals, silica, and forms of vegetable oils known as vegetable stearin, magnesium stearate or stearic acid are the most often used lubricants in Carlson tablets or hard gelatin capsules.

  • Coating: Protects tablet ingredients from deterioration by moisture in the air and makes large tablets easier to swallow. For most coated tablets, a cellulose (plant fiber) film coating is used which is free of sugar and potential allergy-causing substances. Occasionally, other coating materials are used such as corn protein (zein) or an extraction from trees (pharmaceutical glaze).

  • Sweeteners: Added to make the nutrients more palatable only in chewable tablets or liquids. Sweeteners found naturally in fruits such as fructose and sorbitol are chosen. More information on fructose and sorbitol can be sent to you upon request.

  • Flavors and Colors: Added to improve the taste or appearance of a formulation. We use flavors and colors only when necessary and choose the natural ones.
