Before you load the kids into the SUV for your annual family road trip, make sure that you’re packing everything you need. Nutritionist, best-selling author and mom Dr. Felicia Stoler knows how easy it is to forget the little things that make vacations more manageable. She joined WBTV News This Morning’s host to describe her must-have kit for traveling with a family. Her advice for Charlotte TV viewers included supplementing with non-GMO Tocomin SupraBio Tocotrienols, which are derived from a form of vitamin E found in Malaysian red palm fruit oil.
“Parents don’t realize that it would be much easier if you bring things with you than have to scramble. I’ve been that mom that’s had to try in the middle of the night to go to the convenience store, looking for some things and I can’t find what I need,” Stoler began. She suggested a number of healthy, shelf-stable items to have in a grab-and-go bag so that you’re always prepared.
When you’re having fun outdoors (camping, swimming, hiking) it’s easy to underestimate the sun’s strength. “Sun block is important, but I brought something that I wanted to show you, which is tocotrienols. [Tocomin SupraBio Tocotrienols] give you a little bit of SPF from the inside out,” Stoler recommended.
While research indicates that Tocomin’s bio-enhanced full spectrum vitamin E palm tocotrienol and tocopherol complex may work from the inside to help make your skin look healthier, it is still essential to protect yourself from sunburns on all fronts. “Bringing a can of sun block is important too,” Stoler advised.
Natural vitamin E comes in eight different forms. Four are called tocopherols, which are the forms typically found in the synthetic or natural vitamin E supplements. The other four are called tocotrienols, nutrients which function completely differently than tocopherols.
If you are hoping get the benefits discovered in the research – and this applies to any nutritional supplement – it is wise to use the same product and brand (in this case Tocomin) that was used by the researchers. That way you are assured that you are getting the proper purity and dosage.
