Hair loss treatment: The vitamin supplement shown to promote hair growth

According to a review article published in the International Journal of Trichology, oxidative stress is prevalent in many skin conditions, including normal skin ageing. Oxidative stress also appears to play a role in premature hair loss, the article says. Patients with alopecia generally exhibit lower levels of antioxidants in their scalp area, which further supports this association, notes a study published in the Tropical Life Sciences Research. In light of this fact, a study was conducted to investigate the effect of tocotrienol supplementation on hair growth in volunteers suffering from hair loss.

Tocotrienols may complement antiplatelet drugs, reducing aspirin resistance, says new study

Recent findings from the NUTRITION human clinical trial (Natural Tocotrienol Against Ischemic Stroke Event)1 showed that supplementation with the tocotrienol EVNol Suprabio (from ExcelVite, based in Edison, NJ) may decrease aspirin resistance in patients taking blood thinning drugs. In the single-center, randomized double-blind clinical trial, 150 patients who suffered transient ischemic attacks or stroke in the previous six months were assigned to take either placebo, 400 mg of tocotrienol or 800 mg of tocotrienol in addition with aspirin or clopidogrel alone or in combination. While aspirin has been shown to reduce the relative risk of recurrent stroke by inhibiting platelet aggregation, some patients develop aspirin resistance, becoming resistant or only partially responsive to the antiplatelet effects.
