The Truth About Vitamin E

Vitamin E types

Hey everyone-

I have recently been reading a book – The Truth about Vitamin E: The Secret to Thriving with Annatto Tocotrienols by Dr. Barrie Tan. He discusses the research and amazing health benefits of a natural form of vitamin E – Annatto Tocotrienols. I would like to share what I have learned and highlight the above products that we carry at Beeing Well.

Vitamin E is a family of 8 separate but related molecules including 4 tocopherols (delta, gamma, alpha, and beta) and 4 tocotrienols (also delta, gamma, alpha, and beta). For many years, the focus was only on tocopherols because they were discovered first, forty or fifty years before tocotrienols. In the last 10-15 years a lot of research and clinical studies show that tocotrienols combined with a healthy lifestyle do incredible things in the body. With all the research on the tocotrienols, studies also showed that the other form of vitamin E (tocopherols) actually hindered the body’s ability to absorb the tocotrienols. Of the four different tocotrienols, the delta and gamma molecules had the most significant effects on improving overall health.

Here is a summary of the the health benefits of Tocotrienols :

  • Helps maintain a healthy brain for healthy aging
  • Helps maintain a healthy blood sugar level
  • Maintains healthy cells
  • Keeps cardiovascular health and cholesterol in check
  • Reverses metabolic and liver maladies
  • Maintains healthy bones
  • Radiation protection
  • Keeps inflammation at bay
  • Upgrades all your cells to lipid antioxidant protection

I was taken back by the sincerity of the author’s message to the readers – “It is my hope that once you have learned about tocotrienol – you will be able to make changes that will improve both your health and your life.”

It is also my hope that each of you will find at least one thing this month that will make a difference in your health and your life – walking, sunshine, laughter, eating good food, or spending time with a good friend.

Come see what services and products we offer at Beeing Well that will help you improve your health and bring more joy into your life.

Sending hugs and sunshine!

Love ya – Carrie
