Vitamin E is an essential nutrient in the equine diet, meaning horses cannot make it themselves and must consume it through their diets. Horses can easily meet this requirement with adequate access to high-quality pasture. However, vitamin E levels drop rapidly in preserved forages (think hay). And horses with decreased vitamin E levels can be at risk for developing some neuromuscular conditions. As such, owners might need to supplement this vitamin in their horses’ diets, one veterinarian and researcher said.
A study has found that people with Alzheimer’s disease showed significantly lower plasmatic concentration of total tocopherols, total tocotrienols and total vitamin E (full-spectrum vitamin E consisting of all eight isoforms) compared to cognitively healthy subjects. The researchers also measured the leukocyte telomere length (LTL), which has been known to be associated with cognitive decline as well as decline in LTL with aging. The study showed the LTL is shorter in Alzheimer subjects and also that excessive nitrosylation of γ-tocopherol influences the risk of developing Alzheimer’s only in those individuals with preserved telomere length (i.e., biologically younger).
Vitamin E or , known for fighting free radical damage, has health benefits including a reduced risk of skin and hair conditions, low cholesterol levels, potential prevention of cancer, and improvement in heart health. It also helps in improving hormonal balance and PMS symptoms, metabolism and the immune system, along with boosting endurance and muscle growth.
Tocotrienols, or “Tocos” as they’re affectionately known, have been around for a while, but more recently, they’ve become increasingly popular thanks to the growing alternative wellness market. Like turmeric and medicinal mushrooms, Tocotrienols can be found in powdered form and can be plucked off the shelf to adorn your lattes and smoothie bowls.
During the 2019 Natural Products Expo West, the Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) is collaborating with top healthcare professionals and supplement manufacturers to share the latest information learned from 20 years of brain health research using palm-derived vitamin E tocotrienols as well as the Malaysian palm oil industry’s sustainability practices.
Popular alternative health expert Bryce Wylde recently told his nearly 13,000 combined Instagram and Facebook followers about the health benefits of palm-derived tocotrienols. In his lead paragraph he states, “Best supplemental sources of tocotrienols are derived from Malaysian sustainable red palm fruit oil.” Wylde describes how palm-derived tocotrienols support the brain, heart, skin, hair, liver and immune function.
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble compound with antioxidant properties. Getting enough vitamin E is essential for the immune system, blood vessel health, and keeping the skin youthful.

Vitamin E can be used to help restore the irregular balance of calcium that contributes to mitochondrial dysfunction in neutron and heart cell models of Friedreich’s Ataxia.
The study with that finding, “Calcium Deregulation: Novel Insights to Understand Friedreich’s Ataxia Pathophysiology,” was published in the journal Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience.
