What are Tocotrienols?
Naturally occurring vitamin E from rice bran oil contains both tocopherols and tocotrienols. Tocotrienols are vitamin E-related compounds found to have antioxidant properties. This antioxidant formula highlights gamma, the most potent tocotrienol. Studies indicate that the effect of combining tocotienols with tocopherols enhances vitamin E's antioxidant properties.
While tocopherols are generally present in common vegetable oils (soy, canola), tocotrienols, on the other hand, are concentrated in cereal grains (oat, barley, rye, rice bran). Commercial tocotrienols and tocopherols are mainly obtained from natural sources, such as palm or rice bran oil.
What do Tocotrienols do?
Antioxidant: Tocotrienols have demonstrated greater antioxidant than what has been achieved previously in nutritional protocols and cosmetics formulas. The benefits of tocotrienols range from decreasing platelet aggregation (clumping of blood) to anti-inflammatory action. In addition to the free radical scavenging effect, the antioxidant function of tocotrienols is also associated with lowering tumor formation, DNA damage and cell damage.
Cholesterol Reduction: The development of new cholesterol-lowering agents has been given more and more attention by pharmaceutical companies due to the strong relationship between cholesterol and atherosclerosis. Tocotrienols were shown to be effective nutritional agents to treat high cholesterol in recent research programs. They appear to act on a specific enzyme called 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme and suppressed the production of this enzyme, which results in less cholesterol being manufactured by liver cells.
