The Benefits of Vitamin E

The Power of Vitamin E: Understanding Tocotrienols

Vitamin E isn't just one thing! In nature, it's a complex of compounds called tocopherols and tocotrienols, each with unique benefits. Here's why tocotrienols are the real superstars:

  • Supercharged Antioxidants: Tocotrienols work 5000 times faster than tocopherols to neutralize damaging free radicals.

  • Essential for Cellular Health: Vitamin E protects cell membranes, critical for healthy skin, brain, nerves, and blood vessels.

  • Why You May Need More : Foods are richer in tocopherols, so a tocotrienol supplement can be beneficial.

Potential Benefits of Tocotrienols

  • May Combat Cancer: Research suggests anti-cancer properties

  • Heart Health: Could offer cardiovascular protection

  • Liver Support: May aid in liver health

Best Sources of Tocotrienols

  • Rice (not keto-friendly)

  • Palm Oil

  • Annatto (potentially the richest source)


  • Balanced Approach: Consider a whole vitamin E complex with both tocopherols and tocotrienols.

  • Targeted Boost: Focus on dietary tocopherols and try an annatto-based tocotrienol supplement.
