Tocotrienols Shown to be Effective in Lowering Fat Levels in Blood
Date:10/17/2010

f cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.

The scientists found that gamma and delta tocotrienols, derived naturally from palm oil, are potent in lowering triglyceride levels by 28% in the blood of human subjects after two months of supplementation. In addition, tocotrienol-treated subjects in the double blind, placebo-controlled human trial showed decreasing trends in average weight, body fat mass, body fat percentage and waist measurement. The study hence points to the potential of tocotrienols as a natural remedy in fighting obesity.

This research study, which involves collaboration between scientists at Davos Life Science (Singapore), researchers at Malaysia Palm Oil Board (Malaysia) and Phytopharma Co. Ltd. (Japan), was reported in the October 2010 issue of Journal of Atherosclerosis and Thrombosis, the reputable publication of the Japan Atherosclerosis Society. The study involved twenty human subjects with borderline hypercholesterolemia and was conducted in Takara Clinic in Japan. The subjects were not receiving any cholesterol-lowering medications at baseline.

"Other studies have shown triglyceride-lowering effects of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), a polyunsaturated fatty acid found in oily fish, which is approved by Japan's Ministry of Health as a treatment for hyperlipidemia. This study reveals that tocotrienols have a more significant serum triglyceride-lowering effect than EPA. More importantly, tocotrienol did not have any observable side effects, suggesting that it could become a natural remedy to lower triglycerides effectively," said Dr. Daniel Yap, Head for Tocotrienol R&D, Davos Life Science.

An elevated triglyceride level is one of the risk factors for the identification of metabolic syndrome, which is linked to an increase risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and stroke. This study demonstrates -- for the first time -- that gamma and delta tocotrienols work to lower triglyceride levels, by directly suppressing
