Tocotrienol Shows Distinct Health Benefits

The unsaturated side chain of tocotrienols is thought to be the key determinant for tocotrienols to exhibit distinct biological activities as shown in the table below. This is because  when compare to tocopherols, tocotrienols

  • penetrate more efficiently  into cell  membranes;
  • distributed in a more uniform manner;
  • collide efficiently with free radicals to reduce free radicals mediated lipid peroxidation- main driving factor of chronic diseases;
  • 70 times higher cellular uptake
