The Different Types of Alpha D Supplements

The supplement market is constantly changing with each new news headline, influencer trend, and wellness breakthrough. As consumers learn more about the benefits of different types of supplements, they change their buying habits. If you’re not working with a trusted and dynamic third-party supplement manufacturer, your brand could get left behind with the next pivot in wellness. What’s happening with D alpha tocopherol supplements is a great example of why being able to keep up is so important! 


A product that is seeing a huge increase in demand lately is something called alpha D. All supplement brands need to be aware of why consumers are looking for alpha D supplements. Brands also need to know where they can find reliable third-party supplement manufacturers capable of creating these supplements. 


Take a look at how high-visibility brands are meeting the demand for innovative supplements using contract supplement manufacturing services.

What Are D Alpha Supplements?

Alpha D supplements are supplements containing D-alpha-tocopheryl succinate. Of course, most people simply know D alpha supplements as vitamin E supplements. D alpha tocopherol supplements are fat-soluble, oily liquids that range from yellow to brown-red in color. Vitamin E is praised for its antioxidant properties. In studies, vitamin E has been shown to help with heart health, skin health, and cognitive health. Many people also use vitamin E to reduce inflammation. While vitamin E in the form of D-alpha tocopherol is found naturally in meat, vegetables, oils, grains, seeds, and nuts, not everyone is able to get adequate levels of vitamin E through diet alone. This is why alpha D supplements are becoming so popular in the supplement market today!


Your supplement team may be wondering how your brand can begin meeting the demand for products with vitamin E if you don’t have an in-house team capable of creating custom formulations. By partnering  with a supplement manufacturer, like Icelandirect, you’ll have options for developing your own custom formulation, putting your label on a proven stock formulation, or tweaking an existing supplement in your lineup to add vitamin E. Supplement brands that partner with manufacturers also can enjoy benefits, such as production technology, research and development, and quality control measures.

Types of D Alpha Supplements

Like all popular supplements, alpha D supplements are available through a number of delivery methods. As part of your strategy for product positioning, it will be necessary to select a delivery method that matches the potency, price category, and convenience level that appeals to your customer profile. Supplement manufacturers can help brands to create the best products possible at the lowest price per unit possible, as well as determining the best type of delivery method for your new supplement based on how you want to position it in the market. Here’s a look at what brands can consider when creating custom formulations or stock D alpha tocopherol products.


Softgels are extremely popular on the supplement market right now. First, customers simply prefer the softgel to more “rugged” options that can make taking daily doses of supplements uncomfortable. Fatigued by large pills and capsules, customers are increasingly looking for easy-to-take softgels. One big benefit of the softgel for the “user experience” angle is that the design of the softgel makes covering up odors and unpleasant flavors very easy. 


Softgels also provide a premium alpha D supplement experience that leaves consumers feeling like they are getting the best value for their money. Unlike pills or tablets that must go through a complicated digestive process, softgels dissolve quickly in the gastric juices of the digestive tract. This greatly enhances the bioavailability of D alpha tocopherol. From the consumer’s perspective, this enhanced bioavailability enhances a product’s value by making it more “usable” by the body compared to supplements that have low absorption rates. Supplement brands are able to charge premium prices for this superior product. 


Icelandirect is pleased to offer vegan softgels to clients catering to the vegetarian and vegan supplement market.

Liquid D Alpha Tocopherol Supplements

Brands that use Icelandirect to bring their liquid alpha D products to the market can choose formulations with hints of citrus punch, super punch, lemon lime, cherry, lemonade, white mint honey, pink lemonade, mango, orange, peppermint, strawberry mint, chocolate mint, ginger, and cinnamon. Liquid supplements are becoming increasingly popular due to the convenience, control, and enhanced bioavailability offered by this option. Typically, a glass or plastic tincture bottle with a dropper is used to package liquid D alpha tocopherol supplements. Consumers feel like they are getting a high-potency, filler-free product that allows them to enjoy the purest results possible.

Other Options

If you’re simply looking to add vitamin E to multi-ingredient supplements, you can also consider other  supplement products, such as gummies, liposomal vitamins, pet treats, emulsions, and so much more!
