General description

α-Tocopherol succinate is a fat soluble vitamin. α-Tocopherol is a form of vitamin E, which can be obtained through dietary sources. RRR-α-tocopherol is a natural form of α-Tocopherol.

Application

D-α-Tocopherol succinate has been used:
  • to as a dietary supplement to study its immunomodulatory effects in chicks
  • as a dietary supplement in pregnant women to evaluate its effects on arsenic exposure
  • as an antioxidant to investigate concurrent pathways of cell death due to acute exercise

Packaging

5, 25, 100 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Tocopherols (TCP) (vitamin E) are a series (α, β, γ and δ) of chiral organic molecules that vary in their degree of methylation of the phenol moiety of the chromanol ring. Tocopherols are lipid soluble anti-oxidants that protect cell membranes from oxidative damage. α-Tocopherol is the form of tocopherol preferentially absorbed by homo sapiens. α-Tocopherol succinate is used along the α-Tocopherol acetate, α-Tocopherol nicotinate and other esterified forms as a vitamin E supplement with similar but differential activities.
α-Tocopherol is also called as a radical-chain breaker due to its anti-oxidant property.
