Tocotrienols

Cholesterol Reduction

More than 20 years ago, scientists discovered that Tocotrienols are able to reduce cholesterol levels. Since then, numerous studies have demonstrated this cholesterol-lowering effect which is achieved through the post-transcription suppression of HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme involved in cholesterol biosynthesis in the body.

The positive health impact of Tocotrienols lies in a selective lowering of total and LDL (low-density lipoprotein or ‘bad') cholesterol. Supplementary daily doses of 100-200 mg of mixed Tocotrienols over 4-10 weeks have resulted in 8-25% reductions of LDL-cholesterol levels.[3-6]







Cholesterol

Recent animal and human studies also showed that Tocotrienols can lower triglyceride levels[7], high levels of which have been linked to increased risk of heart disease. More research is being carried out, but the evidence indicates that the unique molecular structure of Tocotrienols may also play a role in lowering the risk of metabolic disorders arising from heightened serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
