UNIQUE E ® Tocotrienols – This is a 90 count bottle!
UNIQUE E ® Tocotrienols — Each beef softgel contains Tocopherol-FREE High-Delta and Gamma Delta-Gold® Tocotrienols derived from the Annatto Bean and contains the highest concentrates at 125 mg per softgel. Unlike products derived from palm or rice bran oil our product contains no alpha-tocopherol—which has been shown to inhibit assimilation of tocotrienols in the body. Taking them separately achieves maximum benefits. Our health professionals recommend taking with the evening meal.
Tocotrienols help in the maintenance of cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range. Research indicates that they may also contribute to improving vascular and cardiometabolic integrity, help support a healthy cardiovascular system, and help maintain normal blood glucose levels.
Until recently, there had not been much discussion of the tocotrienol portion of the vitamin E family. This is due to several factors, but the most significant is the emphasis of alpha tocopherol at the expense of the rest of the Vitamin E complex.
Current research suggests that tocotrienols serve as antioxidants and also have other important non-antioxidant functions, such as helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, promoting healthy cellular growth and function, and helping regulate cell adhesion. All of these promising benefits have caused some to ask whether the tocotrienols are more important than the tocopherols. Others have insisted that vitamin E supplements should consist of both the tocopherols and tocotrienols in order to provide vitamin E “as found in nature.”
The following examines the implications of tocotrienol research to date.
Vitamin E is a family of eight molecular structures that consist of a chromanol “head” and side-chain “tail.” Of these eight molecules, there are four tocopherol isomers and four tocotrienol isomers. While the chromanol “heads” of the respective alpha, beta, gamma, and delta tocopherols and tocotrienols are the same, they differ in their hydrocarbon “tails.”
- Tocopherols have phytyl side chains attached to their chromanol nuclei
- Tocotrienols have tails that are unsaturated and form an isoprenoid chain
So, within the vitamin E family are two distinguished lines of tocols that share common chromanol “heads,” yet have different “tails.” This is why tocopherols and tocotrienols are both designated by the Greek a, b, g, and d letters. Thus, the vitamin E family actually consists of two sub-complexes: one tocopherol and one tocotrienol, both of which have distinct bio-activity and function.
