Vitamin Retailer covered Vitamin E tocotrienols in its September 2011 issue. The article describes research studies on the health benefits of tocotrienols, including the potential ability to reduce stroke damage. All of the studies mentioned looked at the effects of tocotrienol dietary supplementation. Tocotrienols occur at very low levels in nature, but the highest concentration can be found in palm fruit oil, a healthy oil that is ideal for most cooking uses. The full article is quite interesting.
