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.
Another study proves that alpha-tocopherol does not interfere with tocotrienol uptake and distribution. As a matter of fact, it improves the uptake of tocotrienols. A recent study (Hansen H., et al., 2015) that evaluates the distribution of vitamin E isoforms (tocopherol and tocotrienol) in laying hens was conducted at Iowa State University. The study shows […]
The researchers found that all individual tocotrienol forms (alpha, gamma, delta) effectively scavenged superoxide, but did not improve endothelial function unless alpha-tocopherol is present.
A new study showed that vitamin E tocotrienols may help protect the liver from drug-induced injury. Many prescription medications – even acetaminophen – can be hard on your liver. Researchers point out that drug-induced liver injury (DILI) accounts for more than half of all cases of acute liver failure in the U.S.
The Malaysian palm oil industry cares about its environment. It invests in wildlife conservation and the country has pledged to set aside at least 50 percent of her total land to forest cover. This lush country is one of the largest carbon sinks in the world.

Palm oil can be substituted for solid fats such as butter, margarine or shortening when baking. Because palm oil is flavor-neutral, consider blending it with a small amount of butter so you still get a buttery flavor.
Sustainable Malaysian palm oil is abundantly rich in molecules called polyphenols. That’s a term often associated with plant-based nutrition, but what exactly does it mean? Polyphenols are natural, plant-based chemicals that are known to have multiple health benefits. For example, the polyphenols found in sustainable Malaysian palm oil are natural antioxidants*. As noted in a […]
The health of your brain’s white matter affects how well it learns and functions. This is also the area of the brain most often affected by stroke. Results of a two-year human clinical study published in the American Heart Association journal, Stroke, show that vitamin E tocotrienols derived from Malaysian palm oil supports white matter […]
