In one of the latest published human studies (Patel and others, 2012), researchers from the Ohio State University Medical Center show that tocotrienols from Tocomin SupraBio (Carotech) are well absorbed and distributed to vital human tissues and organs including skin, adipose, brain, heart and liver, even with the presence of alpha-tocopherol. This is the first ever tissue distribution study with tocotrienols on humans and thereby unequivocally dispelling claims that tocopherol inhibits the absorption of tocotrienols. More importantly, tocotrienols were transported to human brain at a concentration reported to be neuroprotective.
Tocomin SupraBio- A potent natural neuroprotective agent
The outlook for Tocomin SupraBio as a natural dietary supplement addressing neuronal health is bright. The market potential for such a product is huge and remains untapped. There is increasing public awareness that stroke risks can be reduced through changing lifestyle, dietary habits, and the use of scientifically-proved nutritional supplements. Consumers are also seeking out natural compounds in an effort to avoid any unwanted side effects often associated with synthetic drugs.
The applications are widespread, ranging from aging to other neurodegenerative disorders, and represent a sizeable fraction of all health problems taken together. Tocotrienol content in our diet is trace at best.
Natural palm mixed tocotrienol complex shows promising neuroprotective and hypocholesterolemic properties. As such, it is potentially a useful agent for people at risk of ischemic stroke including patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) or mini-stroke. These findings have set the stage for a large scale "nutrition" trial, which is the also the acronym for Natural Tocotrienol Against Ischemic Stroke Event.
Tocomin SupraBio, which is a patented and bioenhanced natural full spectrum palm tocotrienol complex, is well positioned to emerge as the most potent neuroprotective form of natural vitamin E. This further strengthens the case for Tocomin SupraBio tocotrienol supplementation for brain health and brain protection especially among baby boomers and the senior population.
