NEW DOUBLE STRENGTH TOCOTRIENOLS ( 125MG)
We have recently changed our source of Tocotrienols to an oil obtained 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.
