So, what is alfa-tocoferol?

Alpha-tocopherol is a form of vitamin E, a fat-soluble nutrient that plays a vital role in maintaining the health of various bodily functions. As an antioxidant, alpha-tocopherol helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, which can lead to chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Alpha-tocopherol is found in a variety of foods such as nuts, seeds, vegetable oils, and leafy greens, but can also be taken as a dietary supplement. In the food industry, alpha-tocopherol is used as a natural preservative to extend the shelf life of various products.
