Delta and Gamma-tocotrienols:
Vitamin E is made up of eight different compounds, half what are known as tocopherols and the other half, tocotrienols. These Delta and Gamma tocotrienols are powerful antioxidants that work at the cell’s surface and help support a healthy vascular system and coagulation contributing to overall cardiovascular and metabolic health.
Studies performed on the health and habits of large groups of people, have shown that the risk of suffering from cardiovascular disease is greatly reduced by the intake of diets rich in tocotrienols, such as grains, vegetables and fruits.
Specifically, tocotrienols have also been shown to improve the cholesterol profiles. A 2002 study found that 100 milligrams per day of a tocotrienol- rich supplement, reduces
- Total cholesterol as much as 20 percent
- LDL as much as 25 percent. (Low-density lipoproteins which transport cholesterol from the liver to the tissues of the body and when elevated are associated with an increased risk of heart disease)
- Apolipoprotein B (the primary binding protein of LDL) as much as 14 percent
- Triglycerides as much as 12 percent. (Triglycerides are the main constituents of natural fats and oils which when elevated in the blood, lead to a higher risk of stroke)
