- Tocotrienol was once found to inhibit cholesterol production within the liver.
- Tocotrienol suppresses hepatic 5-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme a reductase activity that ends up in the lowering of LDL cholesterol levels.
- Tocotrienols which can be naturally occurring in palm oil, have been shown to suppress / lower plasma cholesterol in human.
Effects On Carotid Atherosclerosis
Medical human research showed that patients with confirmed carotid atherosclerosis, who consumed 240mg of palm based tocotrienol complex per day for 18-36 months had a decrease within the amount of cholesterol plaque of their carotid artery even as the ones receiving placebo didn’t show such an effect.
Palm based tocotrienol complex protects the ApoE knockout mice against cholesterol build-up and hence save you arteriosclerosis.
