Various studies have shown that a lack of vitamin E can ultimately trigger walking and coordination difficulties, as well as muscle weakness. Also known as alpha-tocopherol, or a-tocopherol, it is mainly found in fatty foods such as cooking oils – like olive oil and sunflower oil, and nuts and seeds. Vitamin E works to protect the neurons moving through our bodies – and without it the function of the nervous system can break down.

RHR: The Health Benefits of Tocotrienols, with Dr. Barrie Tan

Dr. Barrie Tan, one of the world’s foremost experts in vitamin E, joins Chris Kresser in this episode of Revolution Health Radio to discuss tocotrienols and their health benefits. Dr. Tan talks about his discovery of the tocotrienol content in the annatto plant, explains how tocotrienols differ from and interact with tocopherols (the more commonly-known form of vitamin E), and discusses research showing the potential benefits of tocotrienols on everything from osteoporosis and bone health to inflammatory conditions, cardiovascular risk, metabolic conditions, and cancer prevention.

Study: Vitamin E Can Boost Immunotherapy Responses by Reinvigorating Dendritic Cells

Researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have found that vitamin E can enhance immunotherapy responses by stimulating the activity of dendritic cells in the tumor, according to findings published in Cancer Discovery.

The researchers found that vitamin E directly binds and blocks the activity of the SHP1 checkpoint protein in dendritic cells, which increases antigen presentation and primes T cells for an anti-tumor immune response. Further, the results lead to a possible new therapeutic approach to improve immunotherapy outcomes, including combinations with vitamin E, as well as directly targeting SHP1 in dendritic cells.

Study: Tocotrienols Show Benefits for Alzheimer’s Disease

NYC, New York—study published in the journal of Biochemistry and Biophysics Reports suggests that tocotrienols may improve brain function in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The study suggests that the vitamin E compounds—alpha-tocotrienol (α-T3), gamma-tocotrienol (γ-T3), and alpha-tocopherol—may reduce amyloid beta (Aβ) plaque accumulation and improved cognitive health.

Patients with AD have lower tocopherols and tocotrienol levels compared to the healthy population, furthering the link between vitamin E and cognitive health, noted Bryan See, Vice President of PhytoGaia, in a press release outlining the findings.

Team Investigates Anti-Obesity Effects of Vitamin E Using Mouse Model

Obesity and its consequences on overall health have become a serious global problem. However, very few substances or drugs can fight obesity. In a recent study, Japanese researchers investigated the anti-obesity effects of tocotrienols, a subtype of vitamin E. Experiments showed that tocotrienols significantly reduce the weight gained by mice on a high-fat diet, while also lowering “bad” cholesterol levels. The results pave the way to efficient treatments for obesity.

Study Finds Tocotrienol, Carotene Complex Beneficial in Animal Model of Lung Fibrosis

The researchers monitored the efficacy of the treatment based on modulations of TGF-β/Smad, PI3K/Akt/mTOR, and NF-kB signaling pathways. According to the authors, both palm tocotrienol and palm carotene treatments significantly restored the BLM-induced alterations in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant functions.
