The deal was signed on Nov 13, 2013 between the two sides to undertake the development, construction, fabrication and operation of a plant to be sited in Kuantan, Pahang for the production of tocotrienol
(vitamin E) from refined bleached palm oil.
To capitalize on tocotrienol
benefits in human health, check in on alpha-tocopherol: less than 10% is recommended.
is now showing a wide range of signaling pathway modulation that produces health benefits that far exceed those of simple oxidant-reducing nutrients.
The project is being headed up by Dr Chris Porter and his team at Monash and will include synthesis of tocotrienol
derivatives based on the new delivery technology.
While further clinical studies are still required to investigate the effects of tocotrienols
in lung cancer, Smiti said the current findings provide experimental evidence that delta-tocotrienol
has the ability to inhibit Notch-1 signaling, cell proliferation and invasion, and induce cell death in non-small cell lung cancer cells.
content was higher than tocopherol in grains of selected pigmented rice genotypes.
Objective: To study the histomorphological effect of tocotrienol
on aortic atherosclerosis in diabetic mice having high fat diet.
Despite its low concentration, tocotrienol
is more effective than tocopherol in protecting cells from oxidative stress .
isomers ([alpha]T3, [gamma]T3, and [delta]T3) with a purity of at least 95% were kindly provided by Carotech Ltd.
Anti-tumor activity has been demonstrated in tocotrienol
which, in some studies, is shown to be the more potent form of vitamin E .
This article explores the impact of vitamin E tocotrienol
on inflammation manifested in cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and diabetes, cancer, and osteoporosis, as well as chronic inflammatory and drug-induced gastric injury.
is the most abundant tocotrienol
isomer circulated in plasma and lipoproteins after postprandial tocotrienol
-rich vitamin E supplementation.
