One of the most studied Phytonutrient by scientists – Tocotrienols have been proven to be mother nature’s gift that keeps on giving. It’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory property has amazing benefits for overall health!
four saturated anologuescalled tocopherols
four unsaturated anologuesreferred to as tocotrienols
Vitamin E refers to eight different isoforms that belong to two categories. Tocotrienols differ from the tocopherols in that they contain three double bonds in the side chain. Each of them has four stereoisomers, respectively, namely, α-, β-, γ-, and δ-tocopherols or tocotrienols.
66% of subjects on tocotrienols improved their non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) within a year while 50% of them had complete remission of their nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Tocotrienols are able to reverse fatty liver effects.
Mixed tocotrienols reduced LDL cholesterol by 17.2% in hypercholesterolemic patients. Improving cardiovascular health and protection.
The brain contains high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), making it very susceptible to free radical-mediated oxidative stress that negatively affects brain health. Tocotrienol’s antioxidant ability is crucial in minimizing oxidative stress and support healthy brain function
1 in 5 Malaysians are found to have Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) which is excess fat build up in the liver, not due to alcohol. It is often due to an unhealthy lifestyle.
Most people don’t even realise when they develop the first stage of NAFLD. Early detection and treatment with NATRIEO is able to reverse the condition! Delay in treatment however, may lead to liver inflammation, scarring, failure or even cancer.
Over 3 months of intervention, there is a reduction of 5% in the ALT readings of the tocotrienol-treated group, compared to an increase of 6% in the lifestyle-modification group.
Of the patients who showed significant reduction in liver stiffness measurement within 3 months, 79% were from the tocotrienol-treated group compared to only 21% from the lifestyle modification only group.
Ultrasound analysis of hypercholesterolemic NAFLD patients indicated that 66% of the tocotrienols-treated group showed improvement in their hepatic echogenic response within 1 year. Of the 66%, 75% normalized their hepatic echogenic response.
