Famed TV personality and natural product proponent Dr. Oz has called red palm oil his most miraculous find for 2013. Red palm oil, with its “super vitamin E” tocotrienols, is reported to work as an anti-aging agent, fight belly fat and combat heart disease. The health benefits of red palm oil are attributed to two very powerful phytonutrients — carotenes and tocotrienols. A recent episode of the Dr. Oz show explained how tocotrienols protect against age-related brain and heart diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, arterial blockage and unhealthy levels of LDL-cholesterol.
According to Mr. WH Leong, vice president of the Malaysian company Carotech Inc., an international tocotrienol producer,“…these phytonutrients, especially the full spectrum palm tocotrienol complex, are proven by science to have significant unique health benefits such as protection against age-related neurodegeneration, heart, liver as well as skin health.”
