Top 10 Healing Traits of Tocotrienols


There’s a new superfood on the scene known as tocotrienols, tocos for short, derived from vitamin E. It can be found in such foods as rice bran, palm oil, coconut oil, barley, wheat germ, oats, and rye. Add tocotrienol powder, which tastes like creamy vanilla ice cream, to your smoothie bowl, matcha, latte, tea, or juice and let the healing begin.

Smart for your heart. Tocotrienols may reduce inflammation for a healthier heart.

Reduces cancer risk. Shown to slow cancer cell growth, it’s even helped speed breast cancer cell death in the lab.
