Premium tocotrienols: a form of Vitamin E that supports cardiovascular, cholesterol, and metabolic health.

Pure Tocotrienols

The term “Vitamin E” covers eight compounds grouped into tocopherols and tocotrienols, each with different chemistries and biological effects. Clinical studies show delta- and gamma-tocotrienols provide significant health benefits, but the commonly used alpha-tocopherol form interferes with delivery of those benefits. GRAS DeltaGold® is derived from annatto, the only known plant containing tocotrienols with virtually no tocopherols present.
