Higher absorption mixed tocotrienols!


Tocotrienols are potent fat soluble free-radical scavenging nutrients that belong to the Vitamin E family. Alpha tocopherol (Vitamin E) is the most famous tocopherol that is considered an antioxidant. The main difference between tocotrienols and tocopherols is that tocopherols have saturated side chains, whereas tocotreinols have unsaturated isoprenoid side chains with three double bonds [1]. Some scientists suggested that tocotrienols are better antioxidants when compared to tocopherols [2][3][4]  However tocotrienols appear to have absorption issues due to their reliance on micelles, which are produced by the body only when adequate amount of dietary fat is present. In order to increase the bioavailability of tocotrienols a patented formula with a vegetable emulsifier has been developed[5]. With this patented system an average of 250% increase in absorption can be achieved when compared with the regular tocotrienol oil extract. Since the tocotrienol products are generally more expensive than the tocopherol products it is even more important that the absorption of this valuable nutrient is enhanced. 


In a human clinical study that was published in the Journal of Nutrition the specific tocotrienol raw material that is used in our product has been shown to be taken up efficiently (absorption into the plasma) and deposited at important human organs like the liver, heart, skin and the brain. [6]


TOCOTRIENOL SOURCE: Virgin Crude Palm Oil (also known as Virgin Red Palm Oil) – the oil that is freshly extracted from palm fruits (Elaies guineensis).


EXTRACTION METHOD: Mild molecular distillation without the use of organic solvents with additional advantage of preserving other natural phytonutrients such as squalene, phytosterols, CoQ10, and mixed carotenes that are naturally present in red palm oil.
