Dr. Atkins on Tocotrienols

The following article is an excerpt from Dr. Atkins' Vita Nutrient Solution:

Tocotrienols: the undiscovered antioxidants

" These members of vitamin E's extended family once were considered of minor significance to our health. We should have known better than to second-guess nature's nutritional master plan. The four tocotrienols, now starting to attract the scientific attention they deserve, are making big waves in stroke and heart disease research."

The Better Antioxidant

" These new kids on the nutritional block reduce inflammation and cancer risk, too, and they might be as much as forty to sixty times stronger than vitamin E in stopping oxidative damage to our cells. If further research verifies the results of one very small clinical experiment, the tocotrienols may have opened the skies for reversing disease far beyond our highest ambitions. This creates a curious parody - nutrients that are not classified as vitamins, yet are more effective than the vitamins they emulate."

" The study that raises this possibility examined fifty people with plaque buildup inside the main artery that supplies blood to the brain. The condition, called "arteriosclerotic narrowing of the carotid artery," can be an ominous prelude to an eventual stroke. Each subject was given 40 mg each of alpha-tocotrienol and gamma-tocotrienol. After eighteen months, fifteen of the twenty-five tocotrienol takers appeared to benefit from the program. For seven of them, the cholesterol accumulation decreased, opening the artery to a greater flow of blood and decreasing the risk of stroke."

"I have seen no other single treatment - no drug, no nutrient, no other special therapy - work quite that well. Such a remarkable reversal of disease risk could, if shown to work for other people, change the way we prescribe nutrients."

" In other promising research, taking 200 mg of gamma-tocotrienol for a month reduced blood readings of cholesterol by a whopping 30%. Thromboxane, a component of blood that encourages clotting and inflammation, also fell, by more than 20 percent."
