Herbert cLean Evans discovered Vitamin E in 1922 for the first time. But it was initially discovered as a fertility factor. On further research, it was found that it is a fat-soluble organic compound that possesses incomparable antioxidant properties. In nature, Vitamin E exists in two fat-soluble forms Tocopherols and Tocotrienols. Each form has further four isoforms i.e., Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta. Earlier, Tocopherol was consumed most commonly because Vitamin E Tocotrienol sources were very rare in nature.
But a decade ago, Dr. Barrie Tan, came out with a dumbfounding and wonderstruck discovery of Tocotrienols in natural stores like annatto plant, palm, and rice, which was a profound achievement towards the antioxidant therapeutic science for the cure of various chronic illnesses, as Tocotrienols are the proven highly potent antioxidants.
If we go centuries back to the time of ancient Mayans, they used to paint their body with Annatto plant extracts, a storehouse of 100% tocotrienol, because of the natural cosmetic value of the plant. Moreover, it was used as a staple food as well as to treat many ailments too because they had a very deep knowledge of its medicinal value.
The major sources of tocotrienol are annatto, palm and rice bran. However, it can also be extracted in some quantities from wheat germ, coconut, cocoa, oats, grapefruit seed oil, hazelnuts, olive oil, maize, buckthorn berry, flaxseed oil, rye, sunflower oil, and poppy seed oil. According to various researches, annatto is the source of the most potent form of this vitamin as these provide tocopherol free tocotrienols. It is known that tocopherol tends to interfere very badly with the key therapeutic behaviors of this form. So, if it is 100% pure, then only it will provide us maximum health benefits, thereby making tocotrienol the best vitamin E supplement. Let us compare the various vitamin E sources to know their therapeutic excellency based on the composition.
As already been discussed, tocotrienol tends to show maximum activity if it is taken solely. This makes the annatto the most effective source because it is the storehouse of tocopherol free tocotrienols. Dr. Barrie Tan has invested his whole life in researching this particular form of vitamin E and is the flag bearer of a number of achievements in this field.
Dr. Barrie Tan’s journey towards tocotrienols started when he visited his friend in Malaysia. His cognizance of the huge antioxidant capabilities of the orange-colored byproduct produced in his amigo’s palm oil manufacturing unit led to the discovery of natural storehouses of the most potent vitamin E form and these are palm, rice, and annatto.
After huge research, he found that Annatto is the most potent source of the purest form of this vitamin as it contains a maximum concentration of Delta Tocotrienols. It has been proven that the Delta Tocotrienol has the maximum bioavailability and incomparable therapeutic benefits among all the eight isoforms of vitamin E. This led to the basis for the synthesis of 100% natural vitamin E supplements such as Eannatto Tocotrienols. AsterVeda Healthcare is making you available the all natural annatto tocotrienols of varied concentrations which one can consume for following purposes:
Eannatto 125mg: One can consume this vitamin E supplement to avail best antioxidant benefits.
Eannatto 300mg: This supplement may help in managing high blood cholesterol levels and chronic inflammations side by side enhancing heart and bone health.
Eannatto 400mg: It may help you in management of various cancers and cell damage caused by radiations.
Most of the following discussed health benefits of this form of vitamin E are due to its outstanding antioxidant properties that means it has an unmatchable tendency to stabilize free radicals. These free radicals are reactive oxygen species that are formed during our regular body activities like exertion, respiration, digestion, mental activities, etc. Such radicals bind to the cell walls and damage them, deteriorating cellular health.
Its three major health benefits are:
It is safe to take tocotrienols but it is always recommended to consult your doctor or health practitioner before taking high doses of tocotrienols, especially when you are on some medication or have any health issue.
