Most people don’t realize that vitamin E contains eight different compounds. Commercial vitamin E supplements focus on only four of these compounds called tocopherols, while mostly leaving out the four tocotrienols that are rich in therapeutic and antioxidant benefits.
Life Extensions Super-Absorbable Tocotrienols softgel capsules contain tocotrienols derived from red palm oil from the Elaeis guineensis tree. Due to their unique chemical structure, tocotrienols provide potent antioxidant benefits throughout the body. Most importantly, tocotrienols shield DNA from oxidant damage while protecting cellular membranes.
As research continues to accelerate, scientists are discovering that tocotrienols support healthy cell division, 1 promote a healthy lipid profile, 2 protect brain function, 3 and even support healthy hair growth.4
