Vitamin E, in its natural form, comprises eight different compounds: alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocopherols and alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocotrienols. Both tocopherols and tocotrienols are important to human health. Known as the “master antioxidant,” vitamin E has the ability to attenuate oxidative stress, and its antioxidant-related effects on various organs and systems have been the focus of vast research. More recently, non-antioxidant mechanisms have been proposed, such as those that affect cellsignal transduction and gene expression. Though the vast majority of research has been on alpha-tocopherol, recent mechanistic studies indicate that other isomers of vitamin E, such as gamma- and deltatocopherols and tocotrienols, have superior antioxidant and cell signaling properties that offer greater health benefits.
Studies have demonstrated that tocotrienols have superior antioxidant activity compared to tocopherols. Tocotrienols also exhibit biological activities related to neuroprotection, radioprotection, cell-life regulation, cytokine modulation, and lipid metabolism that are not shared by tocopherols. Many of these benefits are thought to be mediated via their carboxychromanol metabolites. Among other actions, tocotrienols have been shown to inhibit HMG-CoA reductase (3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase), attenuate transcription factor NF-κB activation, and inhibit COX-2. Given these mechanisms, in addition to their antioxidant mechanisms, tocotrienols have a very broad range of applications. Due to the poor absorption and low bio-availability of tocotrienols, scientists developed EVNol SupraBio™.
EVNol SupraBio: Bio-enhanced tocotrienol/tocopherol complex
EVNol SupraBio is a natural, full-spectrum tocopherol and tocotrienol complex extracted and concentrated from the red palm fruits (Elaeis guineensis) of sustainable plantations in Peninsular Malaysia. This vitamin E complex also contains minute amounts of other phytonutrients such as plant squalene, phytosterols, coenzyme Q10, and mixed carotenoids that are naturally extracted together with tocotrienols. This patented formula contains a precise mixture of oil and approved food emulsifiers at optimum ratio and processing that self-emulsifies in the gastrointestinal tract to facilitate and provide a rapid and consistent absorption of tocotrienols into the plasma, independent of dietary fat or food intake.
