Annatto tocotrienols formula is a unique, tocopherols-free, tocotrienols only product extracted from the food grade South Amercan annatto bean. This product contains 90% delta-tocotrienol and 10% gamma-tocotrienol, making it extremely potent and efficacious for the support of cholesterol management.
The vitamin E family contains four tocotrienols and four tocopherols
Each has the designation of alpha, beta, gamma, and delta. The tocotrienols differ from the tocopherols in the chemical nature of the side chain or tail. Tocotrienols are fat-soluble, water-insoluble oils and modulate several mechanisms associated with the aging process and aging-related diseases.
Most tocotrienol products are derived from palm oil or rice bran oil. Tocotrienol and tocopherol concentrates, referred to as tocotrienol-rich fractions or TRFs, typically contain 25% to 50% tocopherols from rice or palm.
The most effective concentrates shown to lower plasma cholesterol and oxidative indicators were those with low tocopherols and high tocotrienols. Annatto Tocotrienols are tocopherol-free because these tocotrienols are extracted from food grade annatto. Annatto is the most commonly used carotenoid in foods, added for natural coloring. Colorful foods are known for their high antioxidant concentrations.

- Lowering elevated total and LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and Apolipoprotein b
