This Japanese study affirms previous findings and helps explain how tocotrienols may deliver its neuroprotective benefits. EVNol SupraBio, the supplement used in the study, is sourced from responsibly grown and produced Malaysian palm oil.
Palm-derived vitamin E tocotrienols are the hottest nutritional aid in stroke prevention. Studies have proven tocotrienols’ ability to prevent the expansion of white matter lesions in the human brain. Tocotrienols may also be beneficial in the management of dementia, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

A joint study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease may provide hope to individuals affected by the debilitating disease. In the study, mice induced with Alzheimer’s that consumed palm tocotrienols – the potent antioxidant present in Malaysian certified sustainable palm oil – exhibited signs of memory and leaning improvement compared with the control mice.
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.
Tocotrienols often aren’t found in vitamin E supplements and can be hard to get from food. The richest source is red palm oil.
Neuropathic pain is a chronic pain caused by neuronal dysfunction. Severe pain could affect quality of life.
“The assumption that saturated fat at any level of intake is deleterious is not supported by scientific evidence.”
The Non-GMO Project is an independent third-party verification program for non-GMO food and products in North America.
“Saturated fat does not cause heart disease and we need to get it back into our diets,” he stated. But it needs to be the right kinds for saturated fats, such as certified sustainable Malaysian palm oil.
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.
