Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Tocotrienols (α-T3) are widely utilized for their strong antioxidant properties. The various isoforms of tocotrienols differ in their methyl substitution in the chromanol head. α-tocotrienol demonstrates neuroprotective properties by blocking glutamate-induced cell death in neuronal cells. α-Tocotrienol may be used along with other isoforms to differentiate tocotrienol activities.
