It comprises eight different compounds which can typically bifurcated into two categories, namely, ocopherols and tocotrienols. Each category can be further divided into vitamers—α, β, γ and δ—of chiral organic molecules. Of these, α-tocopherol (or alpha- tocopherol) has been considered to be the primary molecule in ways more than one. The vitamer α-tocopherol has a predominant presence in the diet and, hence, Vitamin E supplements almost always contain this molecule. Some of the other key forms of vitamin E are γ-tocopherol (or gamma- tocopherol) and γ-tocotrienol, which have gained significance in molecular researches. The intake of most of the supplements of vitamin E is motivated by its role in reducing various deficiencies. Since the deficiency may be intrinsically related with bone fractures, vitamin E supplements are recommended to elderly people.

However, over the past decade, gamma-tocopherol has gained increased clinical significance and is considered equally important form of vitamin E in human diet. In recent years, several researches have been conducted to explore the efficacy of gamma-tocopherol in preventing the risk of a variety of diseases, such as asthma, various cancer types, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s. Most of these point to promising scope for the growth of the vitamin E market.
