What Is Delta-Tocotrienol?

The vitamin E family consists of eight different molecules - four Tocopherols and four Tocotrienols. All are tadpole-shaped with a head and a tail. Tocopherols have straight tails. Tocotrienols have "wig-wag" tails with three unique double bonds that permit its gifted properties. (Tocopherols lack these double bonds.)

Tocopherols and Tocotrienols come in four configurations - alpha, beta, gamma, and delta - determined by the number and location of methyl groups in their heads. Delta-Tocotrienol is the first and smallest of the eight vitamin E molecules made by nature, allowing greatest mobility through membranes providing rapid responses to cell damages, as the best-in-class, fat-soluble antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Smaller is Better.


Delta-Tocotrienol is also gifted with cardiovascular and cancer benefits... It inhibits monocyte adherence to arterial endothelium in fatty streak formation - one of the first steps in plaque formation. It improves arterial health by preventing the artery walls from getting too narrow and forming blood clots. It inhibits liver cholesterol biosynthesis and decreases Total and LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. It fights cancer by targeting multiple cell signaling pathways and inhibiting cancer cell growth and metastasis. It induces apoptosis (programmed cell death) in cancer cells selectively and causes tumor regression by inhibiting cellular telomerase and promoting anti-angiogenesis (thereby starving the tumor) in cancer and macular degeneration. It also stimulates cytoprotective autophagy in certain cancers.
