For decades, international food manufacturers have associated Malaysian-sourced palm oil with quality. This proud nation produces more than 40 percent of the world’s certified sustainable palm oil. The United States, as well as other countries with high standards, imports most of its palm oil from Malaysia because the country is dedicated to palm oil quality.
Apart from ingesting carotenoid-rich foods, a convenient way of attaining high levels of alpha-carotene and beta-carotene is via dietary supplements.
The new study demonstrates that oral administration of high dose of alpha-tocopherol as well as mixed-tocotrienol do not cause any significant negative effects on bone mass, bone microarchitecture, bone formation and bone marrow osteogenic (bone forming) gene expressions.
Long-term supplementation of mixed-carotene may help to regulate metabolic health in obese children.
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.
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.
