The major difference between the tocopherol form of vitamin E and the tocotrienol form is in the molecular structure of the tail portion of the molecule. The tail of the tocotrienol form contains unsaturated bonds similar to polyunsaturated fatty acids. It is this unique molecular structure that confers special properties of this form of vitamin E for many different health related issues.
