"Palm tocotrienols and tocopherols"
Recent research shows that palm tocotrienols help to protect brain cells and attenuate brain cells damages.
Tocotrienols were proven to reduce the progression of WMLs formation in the brain, hence is a promising ingredient in reducing a form of brain cells degeneration, the risk of Stroke & Dementia.
Compared to tocopherol, tocotrienols possess more powerful neuroprotective, anti-cancer and cholesterol lowering properties.
Vitamin E represents a group of fat-soluble compounds with distinctive antioxidant activities. Vitamin E consists of two class of compounds known as tocopherols and tocotrienols while each of them consist of 4 different subunits: alpha, beta, gamma, and delta. Of these, d-alpha-tocopherol is the naturally occurring form with the greatest vitamin activity.
can bring these benefits to you.
Taking 200 mg/day tocotrienols helps to reduce the progression of white matter lesions formation that contribute to dementia, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease.
Gamma tocotrienol could be used to enhance therapeutic responsiveness in breast cancer patients and extend the survival rate of victim.
Skin and anti-aging
Vitamin E having anti-aging properties and able to prevent oxidative stress. It reduces inflammation within body and on the skin, helping maintain healthy, youthful skin.
Reduce blood glucose level
Palm tocotrienols could improve glucose utilization in the body and improve insulin senstivity in order to reduce blood glucose level.
Mixed tocotrienols help in improving lipid profile by lowering serum total and LDL cholesterol levels.
The antioxidant effect of vitamin E has been shown to have protective effects against nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), or known as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
