Yes: Synthetic vitamin e contains only Alpha tocopherol and this strips the brain of gamma tocopherol which can lead to increased brain hemorrhage and delta tocopherol in the liver which can lead to elevated liver enzymes. Get a all natural mixed tocopherol with all 4 isomers. You can also increase vitamin e in your diet by eating wheat germ, nuts, seeds, oleves asparagus green leafy vegetables.
