Tocotrienols Stop New Fat Cells from Forming

One of the great problems involved with being overweight is the extreme ease with which new fat cells form. A new study shows that alpha and gamma tocotrienol can help prevent baby fat cells from turning into adult fat cells.

Gamma Tocotrienol in the War on Cancer

A flurry of recent studies demonstrates that gamma tocotrienol, a unique form of vitamin E, offers protection at the molecular level from a number of different types of cancer.

Vitamin D Stops Plaque Build Up In Arteries

Scientists have now proven that a lack of vitamin D helps damaged cholesterol (oxidized cholesterol) form plaque and that adequate vitamin D stops damaged cholesterol from forming plaque. This should make it painfully clear that the “public health” advice of the American Cancer Society to use sun block and stay out of the sun has directly contributed to heart disease in a major way in America.

Tocotrienols Offset Alcohol-Induced Nerve Damage

Excess alcohol consumption induces inflammatory damage to nerves resulting in cognitive dysfunction. A new study shows that the tocotrienol form of vitamin E is superior to plain d alpha tocopherol in reducing alcohol-induced nerve damage.

Top 10 Nutrients of 2009

This year saw an exciting expansion of scientific knowledge in support of the field of nutrition and dietary supplements to benefit human health. The more scientists learn about genes the more they realize that it is nutrients that make all the difference in terms of being healthy. This should not come as a surprise to anyone, since our bodies evolved in the context of using nutrients to aid survival. In the following sections I rank the top 10 nutrients of the year (don’t leave home without them).

Tocotrienols Offset Age-Related Immune System Decline

A new animal study with the tocotrienol form of vitamin E shows that tocotrienols can reverse the age-associated decline in immune cell proliferation.

Gamma Tocotrienol Protects Against Radiation Damage

Americans, compared to the people from any other country in the world, are exposed to the highest levels of radiation during medical CT scanning. Some are exposed to radiation during cancer treatment. And then there is radiation from your garden-variety X-rays, cell phones, microwaves, electric power lines, ionizing solar-flare radiation during plane flights, etc. A new animal study shows that gamma tocotrienol, a unique form of vitamin E, can protect against whole body radiation exposure.

Vitamin E from Tocotrienols and Tocopherols Prevent Alzheimer’s

Swedish researchers measured the blood levels of all 8 types of vitamin E in 232 cognitive-healthy subjects age 80+ and then followed them for 6 years to see who developed Alzheimer’s disease. The higher the blood levels of all four tocotrienols (alpha, beta, gamma, and delta) and all four tocopherols (alpha, beta, gamma, and delta) the risk of developing Alzheimer’s was reduced up to 55%.

Tocotrienols May Help Immunizations Work Better

A two-month human study in healthy individuals found that taking tocotrienols every day, and then getting a tetanus vaccine, significantly improved the immune response to the vaccine.

Iodine, Tocotrienols, Berries, and Lipoic Acid to Protect Against Radiation Exposure

The unfolding events relating to Japan’s damaged nuclear reactors is raising the concern in the U.S. of a worst-case scenario of a meltdown with a consequent cloud of radioactive particles following the jet stream over to the U.S. The prevailing jet stream winds would impact Los Angeles to Alaska, and would include Hawaii. Radioactive pollution would reach the U.S. within 36 hours. It would then travel the typical jet stream across the U.S that you see on your daily weather programs. While we all hope this problem does not happen, and various experts may debate the severity of public health issues involved if it should, it never hurts to have a better understanding of the subject. What would you do if such a cloud was headed your way?
