Watch out for Synthetic Versions
When comparing vitamin E supplements, look on the label for the type of vitamin E. Ingredients starting with ‘dl’, such as dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate, are synthetic versions of vitamin E. This ‘dl’ form of vitamin E is significantly cheaper than its natural counterpart.
