The Science Behind the Product
Vitamin E is a complex of eight molecules that work together synergistically. Taking a Vitamin E supplement with only d-alpha tocopherol instead of the entire mixed tocopherols family of isomers can actually deplete the level of d-gamma tocopherol in the body.
The mainstream medical community only recently recognized the importance of d-gamma tocopherol. But A.C. Grace has noted the importance of d-gamma tocopherol since 1962. Our proprietary formula of concentrated tocopherols is specifically designed to provide the highest biological activity and maximum synergistic benefits of the all-natural complex.

What about vitamin E and drug interactions?
People using drugs such as blood-thinners, cholesterol medications, blood pressure medications, etc, should always start with 1 capsule (400 I.U.) and work up to optimum dosage over time as needed. Vitamin E can temporarily increase blood pressure in individuals with high blood pressure—monitoring dosage is required. However, it has been reported that, over time, vitamin E supplementation can support healthy blood pressure levels. Always speak with your primary health care provider before adding this or any other dietary supplement to your daily health regimen.* Vitamin E is fat soluble, what about liver toxicity, what level is safe?
Unlike other fat soluble vitamins, vitamin E is NOT accumulated in the liver. This astonishing fact was recently proven in a paper entitled, Vitamin E Trafficking (see references below). The authors report, “the liver does not accumulate ‘toxic’ amounts of vitamin E. Excess vitamin E is not accumulated in the liver, but is excreted, mostly in bile, via a p-glycoprotein (ABCB4)-mediated process.” Speak with your primary health care provider to determine a dosage that is appropriate for your health goals.*

Who We Are
The A.C. Grace Company was founded in 1962 by Roy Erickson, who after experiencing cardiovascular health challenges, devised an all natural form of Vitamin E to help himself feel his best. Roy experienced significant whole health effects from this superior product, and this led to selling it to friends and then health professionals and the vitamin/supplement retail industry.*
Roy lived until he was 93 years old and ran the company until his death in 2002. The company, located in Big Sandy, Texas and managed by the next generation of family, continues to manufacture and provide exactly the same product Roy invented many years ago under the name UNIQUE E®. We believe our product is the one of the highest, if not the highest, quality Vitamin E supplements on the market. Our product is the natural form of Vitamin E, not the synthetic form found in many stores today. Our product contains no additives or fillers. It is extracted from soybeans, but it contains no soy oil. It is simply a pure Vitamin E product.
