Health News (Week 02 – 2013)
By Robert Redfern

I’d like to start the year off talking about something that will be of great health benefit to you and has me very excited.

As you know Vitamin E already has a good reputation for health.

This email is about a special type of Vitamin E.

Anne and I have recently started to take it because I read a study that suggests:

“Daily supplements of a patented tocotrienol (Vitamin E) complex may increase hair density growth by up 42 per cent”.

In fact I really wanted to just do this whole blast on how good it is for hair but at the same time, didn’t want to neglect the other amazing benefits it can provide.

Before I get into more detail about just why it is so “special”, let’s look at Vitamin E in general.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants remove free radicals – the unstable compounds that damage cell structure and damage health.

Studies show there are multiple benefits for everyone, for instance, Vitamin E has been shown to benefit:

  • Hair growth
  • Stroke induced injuries
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Non alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Immune function
  • Skin health
  • much more!

As you can see, Vitamin E really does posses a wide range of health benefits.

In 1998 researchers found that higher doses of Vitamin E may lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease [1] and another study says it may slow the progression of the disease [2].

It was found in healthy elderly individuals that Vitamin E improves immune responsiveness [3].

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common chronic liver disease in US children and adolescents and researchers are keen to continue investigating the promising results that Vitamin E has shown in the treatment of it [4].

While the health benefits mentioned above are all great, that’s not even the best part!

Let me share with you some exciting news…

Making Vitamin E Even Better………

Like with many things in the supplement world not all things are created equal.

Vitamin E is no exception.>

Vitamin E occurs naturally in basically 2 forms: Tocopherol and Tocotrienol.

Tocopherol, although less effective, is most commonly used in most Vitamin E supplements.

Tocotrienol is up to 300% better and more effectively absorbed compared to Tocopherols.

And the research supporting the vastly greater health benefits of Tocotrienol is rapidly growing……..

In 2007, in the Journal of Nutrition, Japanese researchers from the Tohoku University and Nippon Medical School showed that natural full spectrum palm Tocotrienol complex showed promising anti-angiogenetic properties in the lab.

Anti-angiogenic therapy is a recognized strategy for the prevention of various angiogenesis-mediated disorders such as tumour growth, diabetic retinopathy, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Introducing Naturally Better Vitamin E (a patented form of Tocotrienol)…….

The team at Good Health Naturally have just introduced the, ‘Naturally Better Vitamin E’ – this is a new 100% tocotrienol patented product.

More Amazing Health Benefits of Tocotrienol Vitamin E

Cholesterol Reduction

A study in 2007[5] directly compared Tocotrienol vs Tocopherols and their effects on total cholesterol.

Tocopherols showed little to no benefit. However, the results for Tocotrienols were very promising with researchers concluding “The study adds to existing evidence of the favourable effect of tocotrienols on total cholesterol”

Cardiovascular Health & Protection

Tocopherols have been shown to improve arterial compliance [6]. Arterial compliance is an important cardiovascular risk factor. It has to do with the elasticity and stretch of arteries.

Anti Aging

It appears that Tocotrienols powerful antioxidant properties could provide insights into the mechanisms of aging.

Free radical damage is one way to shorten the lifetime of cells and researchers are excited about the potent antioxidant effects which Tocotrienols exhibit.

Scientists conclude “tocotrienols merit further investigation as possible agents for anti-aging and oxidative stress prevention.”[7]

8. EDISON, NJ—Results of a human clinical trial evaluating the effect of a tocotrienol-tocopherol complex (as Tocomin®SupraBio™, from Carotech) on hair-loss prevention has been published in the journal Tropical Life Sciences Research (Dec. 2010; 21(2):91-99). The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Science
Malaysia. The study involved 38 male and female volunteers who suffered hair loss; they were given either mixed tocotrienol softgel capsules containing 50mg Tocomin®SupraBio™ (n=21) or a placebo (n=17) twice a day for eight months. At baseline, four months (16th week) of supplementation and eight months (32nd week), researchers measured hair count and hair weight over a designated scalp area of 2×2 cm, and recorded obvious hair thinning.
After statistically analyzing the collected data, researchers found 95 percent of volunteers in the tocotrienol group (19 of 20 who actually finished the trial) experienced hair growth. Of these, 40 percent (8 volunteers) had more than 50 percent hair growth, 5 percent (1 volunteer) had 25 to 50 percent hair growth, 45 percent (9 volunteers) had 10 to 25 percent hair growth, and 5 percent had less than 10 percent hair growth. Only one volunteer in this group had a slight decrease in the number of hairs. In the placebo group, only one volunteer experienced more than 20 percent hair growth, seven volunteers (46.7 percent) had negligible increases, while the remaining 7 volunteers (46.7 percent) had a decrease in the number of hairs. Overall, the results indicated supplementation with 100 mg/d Tocomin SupraBio for eight months increased hair growth by 34.5 percent and resulted in a significant increase in the number of hairs, compared to the placebo group. There was no significant difference between he groups in the area of hair weight.
