Low-fat diets are not recommended. Current dietary advice puts the emphasis on optimizing types of dietary fats and not reducing total fat.
Tocotrienols have been shown to have an effect on gene locus p53 which has been identified as a tumor suppression locus.
The study’s conclusion notes that the Dietary Guidelines must carefully consider the health effects of alternatives fats. Many American manufacturers are turning to Malaysian sustainable palm oil for a healthier alternative to trans fats. This versatile and non-GMO oil is naturally trans fat-free and rich in heart- and brain-healthy vitamin E tocotrienols. Palm oil is a balanced oil which contains equal parts saturated and unsaturated fat.
Dr. Beverly Yates, presenting at the August 2015 Palm International Nutra-Cosmeceutical Conference (PINC), reported that Malaysian palm oil may help restore balance to the highly inflammatory Western diet.
The PINC Conference is a venue for palm bioactive researchers to share their results with physicians, pharmacists, other researchers and the media. Palm oil, the world’s most widely consumed oil, is rich in vital nutrients such as tocotrienols, carotenoids and phenolics. Researchers are studying their effect on heart health, stroke recovery, immune health and cancer.
