Tocotrienols are a form of vitamin E. “Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can actually absorb damaging UV light and protect skin cells. It also repairs sun damage on the scalp, which can cause hair to thin,” the article explained.
Tocotrienols have 40 to 60 times the antioxidant power of the more common Vitamin E tocopherols. These tocotrienols, found primarily in red palm oil, can help manage cholesterol levels, help protect against stroke damage and may even reduce cancer risk.
It’s becoming more frequent to see Malaysian sustainable palm oil mentioned in print and digital articles. This planet-friendly ingredient is also included on more food labels as a healthier alternative to trans fats.
