Tocotrienols and Cancer




Vitamin E against Cancer

If you take a multivitamin with Vitamin E or a Vitamin E supplement, check and see if it is a form called “alpha-Tocopherol.” If so, consider switching it out to a form of Vitamin E called “delta or gamma Tocotrienol.” Delta and gamma tocotrienols are derived from the seeds of annato (pictured above), which is what is used to make cheddar cheese orange. The color is very unstable and prone to oxidizing and turning brown so the plant protects it with delta and gamma tocotrienols. Tocotrienols can offer the same protection to your cells, preventing oxidative damage and the systemic inflammation that can follow. Many studies – both lab studies, animal studies, and human studies – demonstrate benefit from taking at least 200 – 300 mg of Tocotrienols a day in the following ways:

  • Healthy cell death (apoptosis)
  • Reduction in new blood vessel growth of tumors (cutting off their nutrient supply)
  • Stimulate Natural Killer cell activity against cancer cells and bacteria
  • Improve cholesterol levels
  • Decrease cardiovascular build up of arterial plaque
  • Decrease your risk for developing Type II Diabetes
  • Improve the symptoms of menopause
  • Prevent bone loss

So many benefits with no side effects! Come on by the clinic to pick up a bottle or ask when you are in for your next appointment. You can also call to have your tocotrienols shipped to you: 630-321-9010.
