Tocotrienols

The Heart of Your Health

The link between Tocotrienols and heart health has the support of many studies that suggest a correlation between Tocotrienols and a decrease in certain risk factors for heart disease such as atherosclerosis and platelet aggression.

Atherosclerosis, or a hardening of the arteries caused by cholesterol accumulating on the blood vessel walls, is a progressive condition that is a primary contributor to heart disease. A heart attack can occur when the blood vessels in the heart (coronaries) are completely blocked. It can also lead to stroke if the blood vessels to the brain (carotids) are choked, thus hindering the brain's oxygen supply.

Tocotrienols are thought to have an influence on the course of carotid atherosclerosis[8]. A four-year study has shown that patients with confirmed carotid atherosclerosis saw a fall in blood vessel narrowing (carotid stenosis) after receiving palm Tocotrienol supplements. The result points to the potential for using palm Tocotrienol mixes as a natural aid to prevent or/and reverse carotid atherosclerosis[9].





Heart Health

Platelet aggregation (the clumping together of platelets in the blood) also raises the risk of heart disease by forming abnormal clots or thrombus. Excessive platelet aggregation hinders normal blood flow in the blood vessels and increases the risk of a heart attack or stroke. Tocotrienols have demonstrated a strong anti-thrombotic effect by reducing the ability of platelets to adhere to the inner wall of blood vessels. [10]

Palm Tocotrienols, in particular Gamma Tocotrienols, have been found to have potent cardioprotective properties.[11]. Studies have also indicated a cardioprotective role for Tocotrienols in alleviating ischemia reperfusion injury, an inflammatory condition caused by the sudden restoration of blood flow to an area or organ following a period of restricted blood supply.[12-13]
