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.
Explore the fascinating world of Vitamin E, which comprises eight forms categorized into tocotrienols and tocopherols. Within these categories, there are four distinct tocotrienols and four different tocopherols, each with its own structure and unique properties that influence its function and impact on the body. While conventional supplements typically focus on tocopherols, the tocotrienol forms of Vitamin E offer exceptional effects on various body systems, making them highly desirable for overall health and wellness support.
While Vitamin E can be found in common Western food sources like wheat, rice, oats, and corn, the annatto seed stands out as the richest known natural source of tocotrienols. Derived from the annatto tree native to Latin America, annatto seeds contain exclusively tocotrienols, specifically delta- and gamma-tocotrienols, and are free of tocopherols. Annatto-E harnesses the power of annatto-derived tocotrienols, available in two serving size options: 150 mg and 300 mg, promoting clinical efficacy.
The tocotrienols found in Annatto-E have been associated with supporting cardiovascular health, skin health, eye health, bone health, lung health, and a healthy inflammatory response. These remarkable benefits make Annatto-E clinically relevant for individuals looking to enhance their overall wellbeing. Moreover, Vitamin E is renowned for its role in supporting antioxidant status, contributing to healthy aging and metabolic health.
While tocopherols can have their own positive effects, it’s crucial to note that they may potentially interfere with the clinical benefits of tocotrienols. To maximize the benefits, it is advisable to take tocotrienols separately from any other supplement containing alpha-tocopherols or space out the intake by at least 6 hours.
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take one softgel per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
