Vitamin E Tocotrienols (Pot Of 90 Capsules)


Vitamin E Tocotrienols (Pot Of 90 Capsules)

Full product description

Double Strength Tocotrienols ( 125mg)

Metabolics Vitamin E Tocotrienols is manufactured with tocotrienols sourced from the Annatto plant in preference to that obtained from palm oil; the annatto plant has the highest concentration of delta and gamma tocotrienol commercially available, containing 90% delta and 10% gamma tocotrienol. Annatto oil is naturally tocopherol free.

Recent research has shown that alpha tocopherol , above 15% can interfere with tocotrienol benefits both directly (Ref 1-6) and indirectly (Ref 1, 4, 7-11)and for these reasons although our last tocotrienol product contained just under 15% alpha tocopherol , Metabolics have opted for a pure product that contains no tocopherol.

In addition studies have shown delta tocotrienol to be the most potent antioxidant of the 8 vitamin E series, followed by gamma tocotrienol, then delta and gamma tocopherol ( Ref 12). Studies on the benefits of tocotrienols demonstrate an average dosage of 200mg+ so we have opted for a double strength capsule that can provide a daily intake of 2 capsules.

"The product is superior to many other brands. It gives an energy lift that lasts for many hours. I began taking 3 soft gels but I decrease the amount to 2 per day. I don't swallow the soft gels because they are difficult to digest. I bite on the soft gels and **** out the content."
