Annatto-E™ 300 is a unique tocopherol-free, tocotrienols-only product, featuring tocotrienols sourced from the annatto tree. It has been shown to support diabetes, relieve diarrhea, reduce fevers, fluid retention, heartburn, and is also used as an antioxidant, inhibit the growth of certain bacteria, may have anti-cancer properties, and bowel cleanser.
Annatto is the richest known source of tocotrienols, containing 100% tocotrienols (90% delta and 10% gamma isomers), with no tocopherols. Annatto-E™ 300 contains delta/gamma tocotrienols. Commercial vitamin E supplements are typically rich in tocopherols and low or absent in tocotrienols; however, tocotrienol fractions have uniquely beneficial effects across various tissues that make them desirable for supporting many aspects of health. Research indicates that tocopherols, especially alpha-tocopherol, may interfere with the therapeutic effects of tocotrienols so that it may be best to dose tocotrienols alone, without tocopherols.
