Vitamin E exists in two major forms in nature and that are Tocotreinol and Tocopherol. Tocotrienol is one of its forms which is undoubtedly underrated as it possesses exceptional anti-cancer attributes which are unknown to the world.  This has moved researchers towards tocotrienols for cancer management in most natural ways.

Tocotrienol is a revolutionary discovery in the world of therapeutic Vitamin E supplements because of its uniqueness in purity and rarity in natural stores. Many researches on Vitamin E have suggested that Tocotrienols are a better source of vitamin E than Tocopherols. This is because of the structural difference between the two. Tocotrienol molecules have shorter tails than Tocopherol molecules which make them more motile and improve their binding tendency towards the damaging free radicals. The antioxidant capability of Tocotrienols is 50 times better than that of the Tocopherols. Moreover, tocotrienols have a way better bioavailability towards the tissues than the Tocopherol Vitamin E supplements.

The Tocotrienols which are extracted from beans of Annatto plant are 90% Delta Tocotrienols. Therefore Annatto is the source of the best Vitamin E which has superb natural anti-cancer potential. There are various natural Annatto based Supplements available in the market like Eannatto 125 mg which can help in natural cancer management along with conventional anticancer modalities.

Natural capabilities of tocotrienols that help in following:

  • Lightening Oxidative burden

  • The tocotrienols have a huge tendency of scavenging miscreant free radicals to protect cells, thereby preventing subsequent development of chronic and deadly diseases.

  • Clogging the nutrition of cancer cells

  • Angiogenesis is the process of maintaining blood supply of a region by forming new blood vessels. By cutting the blood supply of the cancer cells and inhibiting angiogenesis in the affected area, tocotrienols very effectively cause tumour cell starvation, ultimately causing cancer cell death.

  • Programing cancer cell death

  • Apoptosis is the program of cell suicide. All Tocotrienol isoforms possess the tendency to activate cascade of apoptosis in lung cancer cells.

  • Shunting Cancer Growth

  • The cancer cells undergo multiple mitotic divisions to replicate their cancer transformed DNA into their daughter cells. This process is cancer cell proliferation. Delta Tocotrienols especially inhibit cell proliferative activities in lung cancer cells.

  • Preventing cancerous transformation of Cancer cells 

  • Chemoprevention is a unique attribute of Tocotrienols especially its Delta form which prevents cancerous transformation of the normal cells which are under the high risk of getting cancerous.

  • Efficiently managing Hypoxia (low blood oxygen)

  • Lowering the count of inflammatory markers very effectively.

  • Minimising blood cholesterol levels very effectively.

People suffering from from  following diseases can consume tocotrienols for desired health benefits:

  • Inflammation and associated diseases
  • High Lipids levels in blood stream (hyperlipidemia)
  • Arthritis of osteoarthritis
  • Cancer, especially breast cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer, etc.
  • Cardiovascular Diseases & Mets
  • Eye diseases like Retinal Neurodegeneration Diseases or Diabetic Neuropathy
  • Immunocompromised diseases
  • Diseases causing bone weakening
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Asthmatic diseases of respiratory tract
  • Skin diseases
  • Damage caused by radiations especially during radiation therapy during cancer treatment
  • NAFLD or Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver disease 
  • Hyperlipidemia caused by diabetes
  • Bone Fractures
  • Post-menopausal Osteopnea
  • Age-related osteoporosis in women
