During my recent Fox News appearance, I reminded the Minneapolis viewers of the importance of wearing sunscreen. Be sure to always keep some on hand, and don’t forget your lips. I also explained how you might protect your skin from within with tocotrienols. This super potent form of vitamin E helps shield skin from the sun’s harmful rays. One of nature’s richest sources of this nutrient is a protective healthy oil derived from the fruit of the Malaysian oil palm tree.
There are actually eight different forms of vitamin E: four tocotrienols and four tocopherols. They have different health benefits. You may want to consider a Malaysian palm oil-derived tocotrienol supplement. It helps fight UV damage and protects your skin from the inside out. Palm oil is nature’s richest source of tocotrienols.
Malaysian palm oil is a nutritious, non-GMO oil that is used worldwide. You can look for it as an ingredient in healthy foods. You can also find this healthy oil in the cooking oil aisle of many international grocery stores. Some of the cooking oils are red because they are rich in beta carotene, the red-orange pigment found in many fruits and plants. This antioxidant is also great for our health. Malaysian sustainable palm oil is heat stable. It retains its nutritional value when cooking, baking and frying.
This healthy oil is sustainably grown and produced in the environmentally friendly country of Malaysia. Half of the country is protected forest lands that will never be developed. Only four percent of U.S. lands remain undeveloped. The country’s oil palm trees produce bunches of fresh fruit every three months for up to thirty years. They just squeeze the oil out. The country and its palm oil industry are also involved in many wildlife initiatives, such as the Borneo Elephant Sanctuary. It’s amazing and so sustainable.
