Annatto-E Liquid by Designs for Health


Annatto-E Liquid is a unique Vitamin E supplement that is pure tocotrienol and tocopherol-free. This is useful since most Vitamin E supplements contain only tocopherols (alpha-tocopherols) and tocotrienols are rapidly broken down and inhibited by tocopherols. One bottle has 1 fl oz (30 ml) liquid.


You might already be familiar with Vitamin E complexes being known for their antioxidant properties, but did you know that there are two main types and that their functions are different? Tocopherol and tocotrienols both have antioxidant properties activity by protecting tissues from damage by free radicals, but tocotrienols are more potent in neutralizing free radicals. This has been demonstrated in studies on eye and skin health where tocotrienols have been shown to reduce the growth of abnormal blood vessels in the eye.

Tocotrienols also has other benefits: metabolism health, cardiovascular health, inflammatory response, and bone health. More specifically tocotrienols support healthy cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism, which relate to cardiovascular health and modulation of blood glucose and insulin. In addition, they support normal blood lipid metabolism which may support blood glucose and insulin metabolism.

It is recommended to take tocotrienols over tocopherols since tocopherols reduce the effectiveness of tocotrienols. Annatto-E allows you to utilize tocotrienol without hindrance from tocopherol.  Annatto-E from Designs for Health is now available in 150 mg softgel capsules, 300 mg softgel capsules, or liquid.
