I need Seriously Dead in here ASAP...haha
Vitamin E is just a chain breaker, and in small doses shouldn't have any appreciable long-term negative effect on your own internal anti-oxidant system. Just keep the doses reasonable while getting your stress in from healthy sources (exercise, food, conversation, deep thought/focus, etc).
Vitamin E doesn't have much to do with glucose either, it's an agent to control oxidation from lipid peroxides and malondialdehyde, which are precusors of downstream glycolated proteins. So it has an very indirect effect on glucose spiking (which isn't really a concern in a healthy person anyway, as this is effectively regulated by the body in healthy people).
tbh though I don't know much of the difference on gamma vs. alpha. haven't looked into that at all.
as for your other question that you PM'd me: I have no idea. Never heard of either of them. If I ever find out more I'll let you know.
