Reports published online on June 15, 2011 in the Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism and on June 30, 2011 in the journal Stroke reveal the findings of Ohio State University professor Chandan K. Sen and his associates of protective effects for tocotrienols against the damage incurred by stroke. Alpha, beta, gamma and delta tocotrienols are four of the eight forms in which vitamin E occurs and, while not abundant in Western diets, are available in supplemental form.
A natural form of vitamin E called alpha-tocotrienol can trigger production of a protein in the brain that clears toxins from nerve cells, preventing those cells from dying after a stroke, new research shows.

A study with human cells and tocotrienols has demonstrated potent anti-aging effects of tocotrienols, actually extending the length of telomeres while preventing damage to DNA. This study is knocking on the door of the fountain of youth. Tocotrienols, the most potent form of vitamin E, have garnered world-wide scientific attention for their ability to help kill cancer in tandem with and without cancer drugs, their ability to lower cholesterol in a safe way, and a literal mountain of impressive cardiovascular research that I recently reviewed in my article, Tocotrienols: Twenty Years of Dazzling Cardiovascular and Cancer Research.
Extensive Big Pharma propaganda has most allopathic physicians and their patients focused on blood cholesterol levels as a critical factor in cardiovascular disease development, as this is a number they can easily manipulate with dangerous statin drugs. Extensive scientific research points to increased levels of blood fat triglycerides as a primary cause of heart disease, cognitive decline, dementia and metabolic syndrome leading to diabetes.
Davos Life Science (DavosLife) has announced preliminary results of a phase I clinical trial of its delta-tocotrienol (Naturale3) in patients with resectable pancreatic cancer. Tocotrienols are highly potent members of the Vitamin E family that have been found by researchers to inhibit the growth and survival of various types of cancer cells.
A form of Vitamin E may help protect against high levels of radiation exposure. Studies show that a potent form of Vitamin E called gamma tocotrienols may counteract the harmful effects of radiation. “It is something we have been working on for about five years now,” says Dr. Martin Hauer-Jensen, director of radiation health at UAMS.

Numerous studies over the past two decades have clearly proven that the tocotrienol form of vitamin E is a top choice for cardiovascular protection and heart health. A recent review oftocotrienol science points out that they are also being researched for benefits to bone health, blood sugar metabolism, brain health, and cancer. Since tocotrienols offer a safe and effective way to help achieve or maintain healthy cholesterol, while simultaneously protecting your arteries, it is worthwhile to understand more about them and how they can help you with your health.
