Benefits of Tocotrienol

Many of you have been asking about the Cardio-Care product with Xinko Global, and one of its key ingredients, Tocotrienol. Here are some of the key benefits of Tocotrienol. Of course no product can promise any certain result, and Xinko Cardio-Care is no exception – it is not intended to treat, diagnose or cure any disease. However, we do know that the following benefits are achieved by some users of the product and can possibly benefit you in the following ways:

1) CHOLESTEROL LOWERING EFFECTS
Inhibit cholesterol production in the liver, thereby lowering total blood cholesterol.
Alpha Tocotrienol inhibit the biosynthesis of cholesterol.
Tocotrienols have been shown to suppress cholesterol biosynthesis and reduce cholesterol level.
Combination of gamma-tocotrienol and alpha-tocopherol is found as a potential hypolipemic agent in hyperlipemic humans at atherogenic risk.
Tocotienols inhibit cholesterogenesis by suppressing HMG-CoA reductase.
2) INHIBITION OF PLATELET AGGREGATION
Tocotrienols have anti-aggregation effect on blood platelets which will inhibit the thrombosis process.
3) ANTI- CANCER & TUMOR SUPPRESSIVE
Confer anti-cancer properties
Inhibit tumour growth of certain cancers
Alpha and Gamma-Tocotrienols have shown to prolong the life span of cancer-infected mice.
Tocotrienols inhibited tumour cell growth of HELA and P388 cells in culture.
Gamma-tocotrienols is 3 times more potent in inhibiting growth of human breast cancer cultured cells than Tomoxifen.
4) ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES
Alpha Tocotrienol showed better antioxidant activity than alpha-tocopherol in rat liver microsomal membrane.
Antioxidants such as palm tocotrienols caused regression in carotid artery stenosis.
Palm oil vitamin E significantly protects against ischemia/ reperfusion injury in the isolated perfused Langendorff heart.
5) OTHER BENEFITS
Supports immune health
Aids in management of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
Retard cellular ageing due to oxidation
Supplies increased oxygen
Prevents varicose veins
Alleviates fatigue
Prevents external scar formation
Accelerates healing of burns
Lower blood pressure
Aids in preventing miscarriages
Prevents deficiencies caused by excess polyunsaturated oils, chlorinated drinking water, hormone contraceptives and menopause.

Some information on Tocotrienols from Wikkepedia includes:

The discovery of tocotrienols was first reported by Pennock and Whittle (USDA, Liverpool) in 1964, describing the isolation of tocotrienols from rubber.[8] The biological significance of tocotrienols was clearly delineated in the early 1980s, when its ability to lower cholesterol was first reported by Qureshi and Elson (UWisconsin/Madison).[9] During the 1990s, the anti-cancer properties of tocopherols and tocotrienols began to be delineated.[10]
The current commercial sources of tocotrienol are rice, palm, and annatto.[11] The ratio of tocopherol-to-tocotrienol in rice, palm, and annatto is 50:50, 25:75, and 0.1:99.9, respectively. . α-tocopherol makes up roughly 25-50% of palm and rice vitamin E mixtures, respectively, and has been shown to interfere with tocotrienol benefits. Annatto, on the other hand, naturally contains only δ- and γ-tocotrienols and is essentially tocopherol-free, hence not confined by α-tocopherol interference issues.
Other natural tocotrienol sources include rice bran oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, barley, and wheat germ.[12] Sunflower, peanut, walnut, sesame, and olive oils, however contain only tocopherols.[13] Vitamin E supplements typically supply 50–200 mg/day of mixed tocotrienols. In a number of clinical trials, doses of tocotrienols as low as 42 mg/day have shown to reduce blood cholesterol levels by 5%-35%.[14] Tocotrienols are safe and human studies show no adverse effects with consumption of 240 mg/day for 48 months.[15]
Tocotrienol rich fractions from rice, palm, or annatto, used in nutritional supplements, functional foods, and anti-aging cosmetics, are available in the market at 20%, 35%, 50%, and 70% total vitamin E content. Molecular distillation occurs at lower temperatures and reduces the problem of thermal decomposition. High vacuum also eliminates oxidation that might occur in the presence of air.[16] For the utility and quality it is desired for the absolute tocotrienol concentration to be highest, tocopherol to be the lowest, and the process used to be solvent-free. Annatto tocotrienol has the highest tocotrienol concentrations, and is tocopherol-free. (From Wikkepeida)
