The Benefits of Tocotrienol Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which is good for the body as it neutralizes dangerous free radicals. Free radicals damage and age your cells if their levels rise too high. Annatto E contains numerous plant-based compounds with antioxidant properties, including carotenoids, terpenoids, flavonoids, and tocotrienols.
Both forms of Vitamin E -Tocopherol and Tocotrienol- can be found in foods such as whole grains, such as wheat (especially wheat germ), rice, barley, oats and corn, select leafy green vegetables, nuts (such as almonds, peanuts, and hazelnuts), seeds (such as sunflower seeds), green leafy vegetables (such as spinach and broccoli), Palm fruit and Annatto. Most of these foods, however, are higher in Tocopherol E rather than Tocotrienol E. The richest known source of naturally occurring Tocotrienols is found in Annatto, a tree native to Central and South America. Annatto is virtually free of Tocopherols and contains nearly 100% Tocotrienol E. The Tocotrienol form of vitamin E is an important nutrient to include in your Anti-Aging supplement regimen available in our Annatto E -Tocotrienol supplement.
What are Tocotrienols?
Tocotrienols are a group of chemicals that are part of the Vitamin E family. Annatto contains nearly 100% tocotrienols in the strongest and most potent form. Annatto, from the bright red seeds, is the only plant source to provide exclusively the delta- and gamma-Tocotrienol E, which are the most potent and beneficial forms of Vitamin E.
Why do I need them?
Research suggests that Tocotrienol E has an overall positive effect on human health including anticancer properties, brain protective effects, and helps reduce cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately, Tocotrienol E isn’t commonly found in nature and if found, they occur at very low levels so it’s best to take it in concentrated supplements like our E Tocotrienol Annatto supplement.
Vitamin E itself has a multitude of benefits including but not limited to reducing blood clotting, boosting the immune system, protecting eyesight, and fighting off infection. It is also known for helping slow the aging process of your cells and research has supported Vitamin E as a treatment for a variety of degenerative diseases. According to the NIH, people with Crohn’s disease, cystic fibrosis or a dysfunctioning liver may take vitamin E supplements to avoid digestive problems. Some people may be more prone to a vitamin E deficiency than others.
Where can I get Vitamin E?
Naturally occurring sources of vitamin E include nuts and seeds such as almonds, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, pine nuts, and sunflower seeds. It can also be found in fish such as trout, atlantic salmon, and crawfish. Still, it’s important to get enough vitamin E and in the proper form, Tocotrienol Vitamin E, through supplementation.
Our Vitamin E Tocotrienol Annatto supplement gives you valuable therapeutic and preventive options that aid in improving lipid profiles (LDL & Triglycerides) and may reduce homocysteine levels, high blood sugar, high blood pressure and skin inflammation.
The more common form of Vitamin E, Tocopherol E, actually inhibits some of the beneficial effects of Tocotrienol E.
For example: Tocopherol form of Vitamin E blocks Tocotrienol E from lowering your bad cholesterol.
Tocopherol E, the type of vitamin E found in most supplements, does not improve cholesterol. Many authorities now recommend supplementing with Tocotrienol E and avoiding supplements containing Tocopeherol E. If you still desire to use Tocopherol E we recommend separating it from your Tocotrienol E supplement by 6 to 8 hours.
