Recent research carried out by researchers in Singapore has revealed that Tocotrienols, which is a nutrient belonging to the Vitamin E family, could help, improve health as well as lose weight.
Tocotrienols can help people lose weight and reduce body weight as well as help control triglycerides in the blood and prevent cardiovascular disease, claims the study.
Previously, studies have been able to demonstrate the efficacy of a polyunsaturated fatty acid found in fatty fish called eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in being able to lower the triglyceride levels in the body.
And now this study is claiming that Tocotrienols have an even more significant impact of lowering serum triglycerides than EPA. Also Tocotrienols were seen not to have any significant side effects that could make its use contraindicative.
It is also being claimed that there are unique health benefits that occur from the use of Tocotrienols which may be more powerful than alpha-tocopherol, the common form of vitamin E.
So researchers are suggesting that this could become an effective and safe remedy for lowering triglycerides naturally. Further, the researchers are also hopeful that this nutrient will be able to prevent occurrence of the Metabolic Syndrome or help to treat the condition.
