The researchers concluded that EVNol natural full-spectrum palm tocotrienol complex could play an important role in controlling oxidative stress-induced conditions in the brain that could lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
Based on these favorable findings, the researchers concluded that tocotrienols may have potential for metabolic syndrome therapy especially on cardiovascular and liver health, and therefore is worth further investigation.
Over the past eight years, the International Conference on Palm Phytonutrients and Chronic Diseases has provided a good platform for researchers and the industry to share the latest research and findings on palm phytonutrients with research scientists, medical doctors and formulators.
Researchers at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center uncovered a novel pathway for hair follicular regeneration. Palm tocotrienol complex (EVNol SupraBio) was shown to induce hair follicle growth via protein expression of epidermal E-cadherin dependent beta-catenin, the key signaling molecule for inducing pluripotent stem cells in the adult skin.
Palm-derived nutrients have been studied for more than 30 years and have been the topic of more than 180 research projects.
This year marks the 100th celebration of Malaysia’s first commercial oil palm planting. The golden oil has played a major role in the country’s history, helping it become a progressive and prosperous nation revered by many.
The results from this study, collectively, show that both alpha-carotene and gamma-tocopherol may help in the modulation of metabolic-inflammatory processes.
In the article, Cassiday explained that red palm oil is mildy processed. This enables it to retain, “beneficial components such as carotenes and antioxidants that are lost in traditional physical or chemical palm oil refining.”
Over the past year, the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) has changed the emphasis of its zero-deforestation campaign from palm oil to beef cattle and soybeans.
