Increase Life Expectancy in Cancer Patients
Tocotrienols have been studied in human cancer clinical trials and were shown to almost double overall life expectancy when taken with standard therapy. Tocotrienols have also repeatedly been shown to hinder the rapid multiplying of cancer cells.
Support Cardiovascular Health
Tocotrienols support healthy blood lipid levels and a healthy inflammatory response. They have been shown to simultaneously lower cholesterol, triglycerides and inflammation.
Improve Bone Health
Tocotrienols have been studied in a human clinical trial of post-menopausal osteopenia subjects and demonstrated that they help to resist bone loss.
Reduce Fat in the Liver
In a trial conducted with patients who had NAFLD (nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, suffered by 25% of the US population), tocotrienols were found to reduce both fat and enzymes in the liver as well as reduce inflammation of the liver. Those in the study saw an average weight loss of ~10lbs.
Promote Cell Health
The average human body has over 37 trillion cells. Each of those cells has a cell membrane that can be damaged without antioxidant protection. Tocotrienols’ antioxidant properties have been shown to be highly effective in preventing cells from going rancid and maintaining a strong cell wall.
Keep Inflammation at Bay
Tocotrienols’ proven ability to reduce inflammation can help prevent many associated diseases and chronic conditions, improving your overall health.
Uphold a Healthy Blood Sugar Level
Owing to their positive effect on lipids, tocotrienols may be beneficial for patients who need help managing blood sugar and insulin levels. They have been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and help the body create and process glucose better.
Boost Brain Health
Tocotrienols, in addition to a healthy lifestyle, may help keep you sharp and contribute to better brain health. Population-based studies conducted by the Karolinska Institute showed that higher levels of vitamin E tocopherols and tocotrienols in elderly subjects were associated with a lower risk of cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease.
Reverse Skin Damage
Tocotrienols have been found to reduce hyperpigmentation, repair skin damage, heal wounds, protect from light exposure and suppress skin cancer.
Provide Radiation Protection
Tocotrienols help protect sensitive cells from destructive ionizing radiation.
