Research in vitamin E was done on tocopherols and very little is known about tocotrienols. Recent publications indicate that tocotrienols are superior in their biological properties and are listed below(1):
a) Unique protection against heart diseases, atherosclerosis, stroke, and fatty liver disease.
b) Offer neuroprotection(2).
c) Improves carotid vascular flow and inflammation help reduce stroke-induced damages.
d) Improves the elasticity of arteries and lowers cholesterol and triglycerides, and inhibition of sticky adhesion molecules in early atherosclerosis.
Tocotrienols are proving truly to be next generation of vitamin E for heart, brain, liver, and to life.
Matreya can provide from milligram to multigram quantities of purified tocotrienols >98+%.
