Webinar: The Broken Promise of Vitamin E: Why Annatto Sourced Tocotrienols are the 21st Century E
July 25, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Vitamin E supplementation has been promoted for prevention or mitigation of everything from cardiovascular disease to Parkinson’s. In clinical trials, however, vitamin E has rarely lived up to its potential.
That’s because most studies only use alpha-tocopherol—just one of the 8 tocopherols and tocotrienols that comprise vitamin E. Recent research suggests that alpha-tocopherol may not be the most powerful of the 8. Taken alone, it may even be detrimental.
Annatto (Bixa Orellana), an Amazonian tree that produces bright red seeds, has been used as a source of food and oil since 3,600 BCE. Modern research shows that annatto is the only plant source to provide exclusively the delta- and gamma-tocotrienols– the most potent forms of vitamin E.
This webinar will cover milestones in vitamin E research, with special emphasis on distinguishing between tocopherols and tocotrienols, and the ways in which the widely used alpha-tocopherol interferes with tocotrienol function.
Dr. Barrie Tan, one of the world’s experts on vitamin E, will share clinically relevant data on tocotrienol’s anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in the context of cardiometabolic disease, NAFLD, cancer, bone health, and overall cellular health. An overview of the latest randomized trials will highlight annatto tocotrienol’s role as the “21st century vitamin E.”
