Figures and Tables from this paper

Comparative Evaluation of NS-5 Mixture and its Components on Superoxide Production in HUVEC, and Inflammatory Biomarkers in Humans

Results suggest that NS-5 mixture and its components are potent agents in the reduction of superoxide production, cardiovascular risk factors and inflammatory biomarkers, which are modulated by NF-κB.

Impact of ô-Tocotrienol on Inflammatory Biomarkers and Oxidative Stress inHypercholesterolemic Subjects

In a dose-dependent study of 125-750 mg/d, δ-tocotrienol maximally reduced inflammation and oxidative stress parameters with a 250mg/d dose in hypercholesterolemic subjects, and may be a potential therapeutic alternative natural product for the maintenance of health during aging process.

Actions of annatto-extracted tocotrienol supplementation on obese postmenopausal women: study protocol for a double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomised trial

This is the first randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blinded study to determine dietary TT supplementation on an obese population and if successful, will guide the future efficacy TT interventions and TT can be implemented as an alternative for obese population in antiobesity management.

Co-Treatment of Purified Annatto Oil (Bixa orellana L.) and Its Granules (Chronic®) Improves the Blood Lipid Profile and Bone Protective Effects of Testosterone in the Orchiectomy-Induced Osteoporosis in Wistar Rats

The results suggest that co-treatment with annatto products improved the blood lipid profile and the anti-osteoporosis effects of testosterone and overall, GRA had better results than PAO.

Effects of delta‐tocotrienol supplementation on Glycemic Control, oxidative stress, inflammatory biomarkers and miRNA expression in type 2 diabetes mellitus: A randomized control trial

It is demonstrated that δT3 supplementation in addition to oral hypoglycemic agents, improved glycemic control, inflammation, oxidative stress, and miRNA expression in T2DM without any adverse effect, and δ T3 might be considered as an effective dietary supplement to prevent long‐term diabetic complications.

Pharmacokinetics and Bioavailability of Annatto δ-tocotrienol in Healthy Fed Subjects

The results support that tocotrienol, particularly δ-tocotrienol as a dietary supplement might be useful in the prevention of age-related and chronic ailments and when tocotrianols are supplemented in absence of tocopherols, ε-tocOTrienol has better bioavailability, and δ'Tocopherol is converted stepwise to other tocotianols/tocopherols.

Evaluation of Pharmacokinetics, and Bioavailability of Higher Doses of Tocotrienols in Healthy Fed Humans

These higher doses of tocotrienols were found safe in humans and may be useful for treatments of various types of cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease.

Tocotrienol supplementation suppressed bone resorption and oxidative stress in postmenopausal osteopenic women: a 12-week randomized double-blinded placebo-controlled trial

Twelve-week annatto-extracted TT supplementation decreased bone resorption and improved bone turnover rate via suppressing bone remodeling regulators in postmenopausal women with osteopenia.

Pain reduction and improved vascular health associated with daily consumption of an anti-inflammatory dietary supplement blend

Consuming DSB helped manage pain, increased comfort during daily activities, and improved vascular function, and was associated with selective effects on specific blood biomarkers associated with inflammation and vascular health.

Nutritional Studies of Rice Bran Oil



Dose-response impact of various tocotrienols on serum lipid parameters in 5-week-old female chickens

The safe dose of various tocotrienols for human consumption might be 200–1,000 mg/d based on this study, and the HDL/LDL cholesterol ratios were markedly improved by the supplements.

The therapeutic impacts of tocotrienols in type 2 diabetic patients with hyperlipidemia.

Synergistic effect of tocotrienol-rich fraction (TRF(25)) of rice bran and lovastatin on lipid parameters in hypercholesterolemic humans.

Response of hypercholesterolemic subjects to administration of tocotrienols

Dietary assessments based on unanticipated recalls of 24-h food intake records suggest that significant reductions in energy and fat, predominantly in saturated fat, intakes are responsible for the subjects experienced significant Palmvitee- and γ-tocotrienol-mediated decreases in cholesterol.

Letter: Enzymatic determination of cholesterol in high-density lipoprotein fractions prepared by polyanion precipitation.

Data indicate that more investigations in the area of drug/vitamin A interaction are needed and indicate that four additional drugs influence actual or apparent plasma vitamin A values.

Antioxidant effects of tocotrienols in patients with hyperlipidemia and carotid stenosis

The findings suggest that antioxidants, such as tocotrienols, may influence the course of carotid atherosclerosis.

γ-tocotrienol as a hypocholesterolemic and antioxidant agent in rats fed atherogenic diets

The data suggest that the combination of γ-tocotrienol and α-tocopherol, as present in palm oil distillates, deserves further evaluation as a potential hypolipemic agent in hyperlipemic humans at atherogenic risk.
