Description

The four tocopherols (α, β, δ, and γ) and four tocotrienols (α, β, δ, and γ) are forms of vitamin E, which is known for its antioxidant activity.1 Tocotrienols are found in high concentrations in palm oil and wheat germ. β-Tocotrienol is a less potent antioxidant than α-tocotrienol (Item No. 10008377).1 A high cholesterol diet supplemented with a mixture of α- and β-tocopherols and tocotrienols has been shown to lower hepatic cholesterol and cholesterol ester concentration and to reduce atherosclerotic lesions in ApoE+/- mice.2
