Delta-Fraction Tocotrienols contains delta- and gamma-tocotrienols. Along with tocopherols, tocotrienols are part of the vitamin E family. They are important oil-soluble antioxidants, crucial to the protection of fats, oils, and cell membranes against free radical damage. Free radicals are reactive oxygen compounds generated by our normal biological processes and by exposure to ultraviolet radiation, pollution, cigarette smoke and other environmental and biological stress factors. High levels of free radicals can break down cell membranes and damage cell DNA. Tocotrienols have been shown to strengthen arterial walls, and to support blood flow through arteries (coronary, carotid, and peripheral). Tocotrienols help prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, and some studies suggest that tocotrienols may prevent cholesterol oxidation more effectively than tocopherols. Unlike tocopherols, delta- and gamma-tocotrienols also support healthy levels of cholesterol, including total and LDL cholesterol. Tocotrienols have an inhibitory effect on HMG-CoA reductase, the liver enzyme that is critical to the rate at which cholesterol is synthesized.
