Are vitamins added to the algae oil?
We have added Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) to our DHA+EPA product.
There are two reasons to why Testa Omega-3 adds extra vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) to the product DHA+EPA:
- Essential fatty acids are vulnerable for oxidation and Vitamin E protects the product against this since vitamin E functions as an antioxidant;
- When the free radicals (pro-oxidants) outnumber the antioxidants, this can lead to a state called oxidative stress. Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
