Fiona Ho of the Star, Malaysia’s most widely read English-language newspaper, interviewed biochemist and exercise physiologist Dr. Shawn Talbott for a wonderful article about palm fruit oil’s potential ability to counteract the debilitating stress of daily life.

Stress signals the adrenal glands to secrete a hormonal cocktail that includes adrenaline and cortisol, trigging oxidative and inflammatory responses. These can lead to everything from weight gain and wrinkles to gastrointestinal problems and brain fog. Fortunately, the carotenoids and tocotrienols in Malaysian palm fruit oil may combat these negative repercussions.

According to Dr. Talbott, these phytonutrients may play a role in helping our bodies restore their natural biochemical equilibrium. Both carotenoids and tocotrienols are powerful antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. Long-reputed for their anti-aging properties, carotenoids, for example, are thought to protect cells from oxidative stress, free radical damage (including UV exposure) and pro-inflammatory chemicals.

Dr. Talbott believes that carotenoids and tocotrienols combined “make the palm fruit the ideal package to help protect your body against the ravages of stress.”
