*This formula provides a natural blend of 30% tocotrienols and mixed tocopherols extracted from rice bran oil. Tocotrienols are isoprenoid compounds related to the vitamin E family. While the structure of tocotrienols differs only slightly from vitamin E, it gives tocotrienols distinct functions of their own.
In studies, tocotrienols have been shown to support lipid metabolism by maintaining healthy enzyme activity. Tocotrienols have demonstrated the ability to support human breast cell health and scavenge free radicals as well. Gamma tocotrienol is believed to be one of the most prized constituents. In addition, this formula contains alpha and gamma tocopherols, the active forms of vitamin E.
A powerful antioxidant, vitamin E helps to preserve the cell membranes of cardiac and skeletal muscles. Vitamin E also plays a critical role in nucleic acid and protein metabolism, mitochondrial function, and hormone support.
This combination of tocotrienols and vitamin E provides potent, synergistic support for the cardiovascular system and antioxidant protection for cells.
