Delta -Tocotrienol Fights Cholesterol, Cardiovascular Disease, Cancer???

Very interesting and provocative article:

"Vitamin E in the form of delta-tocotrienol can lower cholesterol by an astonishing 15-22%, and markedly improve LDL/HDL ratios"

"Tocotrienol from annatto has a far greater L-ORAC (Oxygen radical absorption capacity) value than alpha-tocopherol, and is more potent than resveratrol and green tea catechins. It is up to 60-fold more potent and 70-fold more bioavailable than alpha-tocopherol."

"Tocotrienols have repeatedly been shown to inhibit proliferation and induce cell death in cancer cells. They may be doing so in multiple ways: by inhibiting angiogenesis, through free-radical quenching, by interfering with tumor pathways"

"“Our study has shown for the first time that lovastatin and delta-tocotrienol, two suppressors of HMG-CoA reductase, synergistically suppress tumor growth in vivo,” they conclude. "

Look, we must be careful in what materials we ingest so as to obtain the best results. But if you want to begin using this unique form of Vitaman E I recommend Mito-GOLD from Geronova Research, a unique and powerful combination of lipoic acid and this rare, specific form of Vitamin E called delta-tocotrienol sourced naturally from the annatto bean.

Why not order some right now?

Hearing Loss, Lipoic Acid and CoQ10

Very interesting research in this article: "One of the most surprising findings was that these two — alpha lipoic acid and coenzyme Q10 — were very specific in their protection against apoptosis and hearing loss,"

"Becoming "hard of hearing" is a standard but unfortunate part of aging: A syndrome called age-related hearing loss affects about 40 percent of people over 65 in the United States, and will afflict an estimated 28 million Americans by 2030.

"Age-related hearing loss is a very common symptom of aging in humans, and also is universal among mammal species, and it's one of the earliest detectable sensory changes in aging," says Tomas Prolla, a professor of genetics and medical genetics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. "

Geronova Research offers a unique R-lipoic Acid (much more effective than alpha-lipoic) and CoQ10 combination in one convenient, easy to swallow capsule.

Along with all the other benefits lipoic and coQ10 provide, you should be thinking of daily lipoic therapy as a nutritional supplement insurance policy.
