In the synthetic form, the methane groups (CH3 groups) are differently arranged than in the natural form of vitamin E. A slightly different position of atomic groups in a molecule can cause a molecule to behave drastically differently in the body.
Several studies show that the natural version is more effective in the body than the synthetic one.
Some scientists believe that the synthetic version does not have health benefits. Others believe that the synthetic version can even cause health problems. This is because the body has proteins that have been created to work best with the natural vitamin E.
That is why we have composed BENJA in such a way that it consists entirely of natural vitamin E. All vitamin E is therefore derived from the natural ingredients in BENJA, such as seeds, vegetables and other substances.
We did not have to add vitamin E because the ingredients in themselves are healthy enough to contain lots of vitamin E.
This also means that BENJA also contains different forms of vitamin E, and not just alpha-tocopherol.
However, because BENJA is completely plant-based, we had to add certain vitamins and minerals.
After all, plant-based food does not naturally contain vitamin B12. And food generally contains very little iodine and vitamin D.
We only selected the best forms of these vitamins and minerals that the body can actually use.
For example, we add vitamin D3, because this variant works better than vitamin D2, which unfortunately is often added to food.
In short, we were guided by nature and an extensive knowledge of how the human body works to create BENJA.
