What is tocotrienol powder?
Tocotrienols Powder are a member of the vitamin E family and have antioxidant properties. Vitamin E in nature is divided into two major families, one is Tocopherol and the other is Tocotrienol. The difference between the two lies in their structure. Tocopherols are synthetic; tocotrienols are natural. Most importantly, tocotrienols also have stronger antioxidant effects, bringing greater health benefits.
Vitamin E is known for its antioxidant properties, which help neutralize free radicals in the body. Specifically, tocotrienols support cardiovascular health, healthy cholesterol levels, and even gastrointestinal health. It has also been shown to support cognitive health, bone health, hair skin and nail health.
History and discovery of tocotrienols
Although vitamin E (a form of alpha-tocopherol) was discovered as early as the 1920s, it was not until the 1960s that tocotrienols were evaluated and determined to be part of the vitamin E family tree. Vitamin E is called a "vitamin" because it is essential for reproduction and is sometimes called the "fertility vitamin." Its antioxidant activity was discovered earlier (1930s). Dr. Barrie Tan, inventor of many processes for extracting tocotrienols from natural sources, developed and marketed tocotrienols from current sources (rice, palm oil, and annatto) First person. These findings include tocotrienols from palm oil (1992), japonica rice (1998), and annatto (2002).
What are the benefits of tocotrienols?
reduce cholesterol. Modern medicine shows that excess sterol is one of the causative factors of cardiovascular disease, especially high levels of low-density lipoprotein, which is an important causative factor and is the main vehicle for transporting cholesterol to extrahepatic tissues. In human liver experiments, tocotrienol inhibits the activity of HMG-CoA reductase (hydroxymethylglutarate coenzyme A reductase) that catalyzes cholesterol biosynthesis in the liver through a post-transcriptional regulatory mechanism, thereby effectively reducing LDL in serum -Cholesterol and total cholesterol content, total cholesterol synthesis was reduced by 32%. Tocopherol does not have enzyme-inhibiting activity.
Promote neurodevelopment. An experiment used gene chip technology to study the effect of vitamin E on fetal brain development in rats. The results showed that the level of α-tocopherol in the fetal brain was about 1/2 of that of the mother. In the tocotrienol-added group, the level of α-tocopherol in the fetal brain was lower than that of the mother. -Tocotrienol levels are significantly higher than those of the mother, indicating that tocotrienols are more likely to break through the blood-brain barrier. In addition, α-tocotrienol can also inhibit the signal transduction reaction induced by glutamate that leads to neurodegeneration in the body, which is a function that tocopherol does not have.
Promotes joint health. Generally speaking, vitamin D is closely related to bones and joints, and recent studies have shown that vitamin E also plays an important role in bone health. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial published in the journal Nutrition followed 87 postmenopausal women (average age 60 years old) with lower than average bone density for 12 weeks. The results show that tocotrienol supplementation improves bone turnover rate and is a safe and effective new option for bone health care.
Anti-oxidize effect. As a fat-soluble antioxidant, tocopherol mainly exists in cell membranes, capturing free radicals generated by lipid oxidation and playing a certain antioxidant role. Scientific research has found that a mixed component rich in alpha-tocotrienol extracted from palm oil is a better antioxidant. Its antioxidant activity is 40 to 60 times that of alpha-tocopherol, and it can be removed more effectively. Free radicals on lipid cell membranes, thereby delaying aging.
Prevent atherosclerosis. Scientific research has found that tocotrienols can inhibit the peroxidation reaction of cell membrane lipids, increase the antioxidant capacity of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), reduce the production of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and protect low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Protected from oxidation. Tocotrienols also inhibit platelet aggregation on the surface of blood vessels and protect vascular endothelium, and are therefore considered to have the effect of preventing atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.
Biological functions of Tocotrienols Bulk
Tocotrienols and tocopherols have similar structures, so tocotrienols also have some of the functions of tocopherols, such as antioxidants . Since tocotrienols have unsaturated phytyl side chains, tocotrienols have some functions that are different from tocopherols. For example, the unsaturated side chains of tocotrienols enable them to effectively penetrate layers containing saturated fats. Tissues, such as liver and brain tissue, are better distributed in the fat layer of cell membranes, thus having superior antioxidant functions and free radical scavenging effects; the side chains of tocotrienols can increase the metabolism of the metabolic intermediate product farnesol content, thereby inhibiting the activity of hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HMG‑CoA reductase), so tocotrienols have the function of lowering cholesterol; tocotrienols also have anti-angiogenic properties, and Cellular uptake potential is 70 times greater than tocopherol.
