Annatto-E™ 150 is a unique tocopherol-free, tocotrienols-only product, featuring tocotrienols sourced from the annatto tree. Annatto is the richest known source of tocotrienols, containing 100% tocotrienols (90% delta and 10% gamma isomers), with no tocopherols. Annatto-E™ 150 contains 150 mg per softgel of delta/gamma tocotrienols. Commercial vitamin E supplements are typically rich in tocopherols and low or absent in tocotrienols; however, tocotrienol fractions have unique beneficial effects across a variety of tissues that make them desirable for supporting many aspects of health. Research indicates that tocopherols—especially alpha-tocopherol—may interfere with key therapeutic effects of tocotrienols, so it may be best to dose tocotrienols alone, without tocopherols.
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take one softgel per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Vitamin E is not a single nutrient, but rather a complex consisting of 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols. Each of these components has a different molecular weight and slightly different chemical structure, which impart distinct properties that influence their biochemical functions. Annatto-E™ features DeltaGold®, a patented annatto tocotrienol formula produced in the US by American River Manufacturing.
Annatto-E™ may help support:
- Cardiovascular health & a healthy lipid profile
- Antioxidant status
- A healthy inflammatory response
- Bone mass, skin and eye health
- Anti-proliferative effects
Why No Tocopherols?
Alpha-tocopherol compromises several of the beneficial effects of tocotrienols, including blocking their absorption and inducing their catabolism. Tocopherol may also inhibit adipose and liver storage of tocotrienols, so it’s advisable to take tocotrienols alone.
