Our vitamin E

Baze measures your vitamin E levels (alpha-tocopherol in blood plasma) and offers customized supplementation dosing to get your levels in the optimal range.

Since the term ‘Vitamin E’ actually encompasses 8 different nutrients that work together to form its beneficial effects, supplementation can take on many forms: alpha-tocopherol, gamma-tocopherol, tocotrienols, and mixed tocopherols to name a few. We use natural vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol), which is the form you would find in foods. Whereas most supplements only contain alpha-tocopherol, our product contains all 4 tocopherols in safflower oil to promote optimal absorption.
