Based on these favorable findings, the researchers concluded that tocotrienols may have potential for metabolic syndrome therapy especially on cardiovascular and liver health, and therefore is worth further investigation.
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.
Researchers at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center uncovered a novel pathway for hair follicular regeneration. Palm tocotrienol complex (EVNol SupraBio) was shown to induce hair follicle growth via protein expression of epidermal E-cadherin dependent beta-catenin, the key signaling molecule for inducing pluripotent stem cells in the adult skin.
Palm-derived nutrients have been studied for more than 30 years and have been the topic of more than 180 research projects.
The results from this study, collectively, show that both alpha-carotene and gamma-tocopherol may help in the modulation of metabolic-inflammatory processes.
When comparing to the control group, the tocotrienols-treated mice demonstrated reduced tumor sizes and tumor volumes in a dose-dependent manner.
You may be reading and hearing more about tocotrienols. Studies have shown that premium tocotrienol supplements, derived from Malaysian certified sustainable palm oil, may help protect your brain from stroke damage, promote younger skin, support liver health and even reduce cancer risk.
Both parties took undue liberty by extrapolating the findings to raise an alert that palmitic acid is a main component of animal and vegetable fats and present in high levels in palm oil which is used in many household products. Incidentally, palmitic acid is the major fatty acid that our body makes to sustain life.
These results may help the scientific community establish intake recommendations for tocotrienols, particularly the tolerable upper intake level.
“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.

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.
