Annatto-E™ 300 is a unique tocopherol-free, tocotrienols-only product, featuring tocotrienols sourced from the annatto tree. Annatto is the richest known source of tocotrienols, containing 100% tocotrienols (90% delta and 10% gamma isomers), with no tocopherols. Annatto-E™ 300 contains 300 mg per softgel of delta/gamma tocotrienols. Commercial vitamin E supplements are typically rich in tocopherols and low or absent in tocotrienols; however, tocotrienol fractions have unique beneficial effects across a variety of tissues that make them desirable for supporting many aspects of health. Research indicates that tocopherols—especially alphatocopherol—may interfere with key beneficial effects of tocotrienols, so it may be best to dose tocotrienols alone, without tocopherols.
Vitamin E is not a single nutrient, but rather a complex consisting of 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols. Each of these components has a different molecular weight and slightly different chemical structure, which impart distinct properties that influence their biochemical functions. Annatto-E™ features DeltaGold®, a patented annatto tocotrienol formula produced in the US by American River Manufacturing. Annatto-E™ may help support:
Why No Tocopherols?Alpha-tocopherol compromises several of the beneficial effects of tocotrienols, including blocking their absorption and inducing their catabolism. Tocopherol may also inhibit adipose and liver storage of tocotrienols, so it’s advisable to take tocotrienols alone.
