Focus On: Alpha Linoleic: Alpha-linoleic acid is a kind of omega-3 fatty acid found in plants. Alpha-linolenic acid is similar to the omega-3 fatty acids that are in fish oil, called eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). One of the best ways to help prevent and treat heart disease is to eat a diet that is low in saturated and trans fats, and rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, particularly omega-3 fatty acids.
Alpha-tocopherol: Vitamin E is an antioxidant. This means it protects body tissue from damage caused by substances called free radicals, which can harm cells, tissues, and organs. Naturally occurring vitamin E exists in eight chemical forms. Alpha-tocopherol is the only form that is recognized to meet human requirements.
