Dietary Carotenoids, Vitamin C Inversely Correlate to Lung Cancer Risk

A new study reveals protective effects of selected carotenoids and vitamin C against lung cancer risks and growth of different type of carcinoma cells (3). In this study, data from a case-control study of lung cancer in Montreal Canada was used to examine the roles of dietary beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein/zeaxanthin, lycopene and vitamin C...

Alpha-carotene, Beta-carotene, Lycopene Demonstrate Inverse Correlation To Parkinson’s Disease

A new study reveals that low serum alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and lycopene contribute to increased risk and progression of Parkinson’s disease (PD). In this study, serum levels of antioxidants such as alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, retinol, alpha- and gamma-tocopherol, lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-cryptoxanthin were measured and compared between 104 patients with idiopathic PD (Early PD (Hoehn and Yahr...

Palm Tocotrienol (EVNol™) Supports Neuroprotection by Modulating Microglia Responses

A new study conducted by researchers in Malaysia reveals that EVNol™ – full spectrum palm tocotrienol-tocopherol complex confers neuroprotection by reducing expression of CD40 (ie: co-stimulatory molecule produced by microglia). Increased in the expression of CD40 is associated with the development of neurodegenerative diseases. In this study, the BV2 or microglial cells (ie: central nervous... View Article

Safety Assessment of Palm Tocotrienol (EVNol SupraBio™) in Subjects with Metabolic Syndrome

A randomized, double-blind, cross-over and placebo-controlled clinical trial shows that in subjects with metabolic syndrome, supplementation with 400mg palm tocotrienol complex for 14 days are well-tolerated, with no signs of any adverse health events of blood profile (e.g. haematoxicity) and liver functions (e.g. hepatotoxicity). These results may contribute to the scientific community in the establishment... View Article

EVNol™ Palm Tocotrienol Complex Improves Oxidative Stress-Induced Vascular Impairments

A new study reveals that palm tocotrienol may attenuate vascular function impairment in rats fed with high-fat western diet. In this interesting study, male Wistar-Hooded rats were randomly assigned into standard diet (normal fat content) and western diet (high fat content) for 12 weeks. 40mg/kg/day of EVNol™ (formerly known as Tocomin, supplied by ExcelVite) or...
