What are tocotrienols?
Vitamin E, long considered "a vitamin looking for a disease," plays an essential role in maintaining the structure and function of the human nervous system as well as being a powerful antioxidant that prevents free radical damage and enhances the immune system. When Vitamin E was originally being isolated, it was proposed to call the components tocopherols. Thus, a basic class of the initial four compounds were known as alpha, beta, delta and gamma tocopherols. The term "Vitamin E" now refers to a class of fat soluble antioxidants consisting of tocotrienols and tocopherols. Lately, as a result of research, tocotrienols have been found to exert powerful antioxidant, anticancer and cholesterol-lowering capabilities. In their antioxidant function, some of the tocotrienols have been found to be 6,000 times more potent than alpha tocopherols, and even alpha and delta tocotrienols are between 40-200 times more potent than alpha tocopherols.
The liver, the body's largest internal organ, is the main site of and the regulator of amino acid metabolism. Nutritional Essentials provides 19 essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. The importance of receiving a sufficient level of all the amino acids cannot be stressed enough. We must have a constant supply of amino acids to build the proteins that create our body’s tissues and influence the body's weight, shape and tone. Proteins are made and broken down daily. About 60-70 percent of the amino acids available in the body are recycled from old tissue proteins.
In addition, this complex contains a superior form of B Complex vitamins, along with powerful antioxidant vitamins and herbs.
