Vitamin E refers to a group of eight related, lipid-soluble, antioxidant compounds commonly found in plants. Tocopherol and tocotrienol are each composed of alpha, beta, gamma, and delta fractions which have distinguished biological effects. The ratios of these complex compounds are different in each different part of a plant. For example, the green parts of a plant is where the highest concentration of alpha tocopherol and the seed germ and bran is where the highest concentration of tocotrienols are found. Tocopherols and tocotrienols, amongst other nutrients, are concentrated in the bran layers of the rye grain. Tocopherols and tocotrienols are only present at low levels in the flour endosperm. Tocopherols are also present in algae, mint teas, and other foods.
Tocotrienols have displayed the ability to help maintain arterial and heart health. This wonder nutrient is highly effective because of its structure of double bonds in the isoprenoid side chain. This what makes it the premiere scavenger of free radicals.
Sesame lignans have been added to help block or inhibit the enzyme that breaks down tocotrienols, allowing tissue levels of tocotrienols to build up in the body. This translates into much greater antioxidant protection, decreasing destructive free radicals.
Research has shown that tocotrienols display potent neuroprotective properties.
