“Therefore, it is very important for everyone, especially elderly people to increase plasma alpha-carotene through dietary supplements or foods with high content of alpha carotene in the body for promoting night vision and cardiovascular health,” says CheeYen Lau, Nutritionist of ExcelVite.
Researchers around the world are studying Malaysian sustainable palm oil, and how it fits into a healthy diet. There is a lot to understand about palm oil. This healthy oil is a rich source of vitamin E tocotrienols and has a neutral effect on blood cholesterol. Studies have also shown promising results in reducing stroke damage, limiting diabetes symptoms and protecting skin from UV damage.
These posts share research findings and other scientific reports on nutrition, fats and Malaysian sustainable palm oil.

Studies suggest that approximately 50 percent of women and up to 25 percent of men age 50 and older will break a bone due to this disorder. Researchers are learning, however, that consuming palm oil’s tocotrienols may lead to stronger bones.
Malaysian palm oil is a rich source of tocotrienols, which are part of the vitamin E complex. While extremely beneficial, many people aren’t getting enough tocotrienols from the foods they eat.

Most of us agree that tans look great. But spending too much time in the sun may cause premature wrinkling, brown spots or skin cancer. A recent study found that a diet rich in carotenoids gives your skin a healthy color. This may be a healthy alternative to tanning.
A randomized, controlled study reveals that red palm oil (RPO, enriched with high levels of tocotrienols, tocopherols and carotenoids) supplementation decreases lipid peroxidation and endotoxemia (the presence of heat stable toxin derived from certain gram negative bacteria in the blood), production of inflammatory cytokines, and monocyte tissue factor (TF) in chronic liver disease patients.
A cross-sectional study reveals that high concentration of serum carotenoids is positively correlated to higher bone mineral density (BMD) in middle-aged and elderly Chinese adults, especially in women.
There are epidemiologic data that do not support the position that saturated fatty acids represent a risk to the development of cardiovascular disease. There are also data that suggest dietary saturated fatty acids may reduce the risk of stroke.
Once again, the health benefits of high carotenoid intake especially alpha-carotene and beta-carotene, as this study reveals, is linked to reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, the most common form of diabetes.
