It pains me to write a negative review on a Swanson product because I am a HUGE Swanson fan. I’ve been taking this product for years thinking I was getting a good mix of tocopherols. However I recently inquired on the actual mix quantities of the various tocopheols via emails with three customer support reps. What I found out was deeply disappointing.
Of the 268 mg (equivalent of 400 IU) of vitamin E in each of these caps, over 265 mg is D-Alpha and less than 2 mg is a mix of the other three. Sad but true. Roughly 1% contains a mix, while roughly 99% is straight D-Alpha which according to many well respected experts in the field is not only the least beneficial of the tocopherols but can also displace some of the others (notably the Gamma) in their function in the cells. In fact high doses of Alpha without enough Gamma can be counter-productive according to recent research. The beneficial form of vitamin E from dietary sources that has been researched is in the Gamma form.
My disappointment with Swanson is not that they are putting out pretty much a straight D-Alpha product. I’m fine with that. The vast majority of what is on the market is D-Alpha (whether it be natural or synthetic). What bothers me is that they call this “Mixed Tocopherols” which I feel is very misleading based on the amounts involved. I don’t believe that this is intentional, but I still find it disappointing.
I recently switched to the Swanson Maximum Strength Gamma, which contains a whopping 750 mg of Gamma along with a decent amount of Beta and Delta. Much more expensive, but in my mind well worth every penny.

Product arrived quickly. Soft gels are fresh and pliant, not hard like some get in stores. Exactly the amount I wanted at a perfect price. Thank you!

I started taking natural vitamin E forty three years ago. I will be attending my 50 year reunion this summer...How do I explain to all my former classmates why I look like I just stepped out of a time machine?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cynthia1 Dual usage---for me
I use this product sporadically. And, just as often as I take one, I slice off the tip of another capsule and apply it to my face, sometimes using 2 capsules on my face, doing this usually when the air has been quite dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Prometheus I'm always recommending this type and brand
I keep coming back to this brand and this mix of tocopherols. It's the best and a great value. The others seem to have no effect for me. The difference with these is notable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ThePersonWhoReviewedThis Great price and quality
There is no real qay to quantify how well this "works". I take it because it's so good for you.
The reasons I chose this one, was because of the great price, and the lack of fillers and additive ingredients.
I haven't had any problems with it, so I will continue to buy it! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by bogman Great Value !
I take one every day. I can't say that it does anything for me, but as 400 IU's are recommended daily, this is the cheapest form of all natural E I've found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by waricson From an old geezer
I'm 89 and I have opted for the Mixed Tocopherols form of Vitamin E for over 45 years. It is the natural form and I love natural. I have always said that they (meaning those who study nutrition) have not discovered everything that is present in natural nutrients yet and if I go natural I will get the benefit of what has not yet discovered. I believe that is part of the reason I am healthy at 89.

I am happy to order this quality Vitamin E at a good price from Swanson's. I like the 250 soft gel size bottle so it lasts a long time before I run out. I have been taking two 400 mg soft gels a day for a LONG time...just part of my effort to maintain health.

Vitamin E Mixed Tocopherols is a great antioxidant and it make me feel so rejuvenate after taking it in a matter of a couple of days. It works effectively when taking it with the Swanson Essential Fatty Acids product lists.
