Vitamin E Succinate (Alpha-tocopheryl succinate) Bulk Powder
- Vitamin E Succinate (Alpha-tocopheryl succinate)
When I worked on my PhD in Immunology, Vitamin E Succinate (D-Alpha-Tocopheryl Acid Succinate), and no other form of Vitamin E, was under study.
There was incredible optimism and excitement around it.
I'll have to leave that to you and a Google search to answer that question. There is so much, cancer prevention and treatment being the primary draw.
I do have to add that it is currently unknown if the Succinate form of Vitamin E can be taken orally for the same benefits seen in animal studies where the compound was administered by injection.
It most certainly maintains its full Vitamin E activity when taken orally.
With this form of Vitamin E, 1 gram (1,000 mg) = 1210 IU
If you don't have a somewhat accurate milligram scale, you can use the approximation of 1/2 teaspoon is about 400 mg (~ 484 IU) if you don't pack the powder and let it remain loose. Since the toxicity is really low, this should be accurate enough for the majority of buyers.
I looked at online ads for Vitamin E Succinate, and it seems to run about $6.00 per 1000 IU
If you do the math, this listing offers you Vitamin E Succinate for just above 20 cents per 1000 IU.
And for those that might think that I compromise the quality, I can tell you that many retail brand name suppliers use the same exact manufacturer that I use. It's not that I charge too little, it's that typical retail vitamin companies charge too much and most of that is for the bottle and encapsulation.
This is a fresh batch.
Again, my pricing is for high purity bulk powdered Vitamin E Succinate.
It comes in functional packaging, nothing pretty or slick, and is intended for use as a supplement.
This minimal packaging allows for steep discounts and this offering is a small fraction of what you would pay if this was encapsulated and bottled. By far, most of the cost of selling supplements is the packaging.
