TOCOMAX20% contains predominantly made up of gamma-tocotrienol, delta-tocotrienol, beta-tocotrienol and alpha-tocotrienol.

The unique combination of phytonutrients in natural proportion and their synergistic effects may ultimately confer the many beneficial health effects associated with tocotrienols.
Tocotrienols are members of the vitamin E family. An essential nutrient for the body, vitamin E is made up of four tocopherols (alpha, beta, gamma, delta) and four tocotrienols (alpha, beta, gamma, delta). The slight difference between tocotrienols and tocopherols lie in the unsaturated side chain having three double bonds in its farnesyl isoprenoid tail. Tocotrienols are natural compounds found in select vegetable oils, wheat germ, barley, saw palmetto, and certain types of nuts and grains. This variant of vitamin E typically only occurs at very low levels in nature.
Chemically, vitamin E in all of its forms functions as an antioxidant. All of the tocotrienol and tocopherol isomers have this antioxidant activity due to the ability to donate a hydrogen atom (a proton plus electron) from the hydroxyl group on the chromanol ring, to a free radical in the body.
In addition, this vitamin E, promotes heart health, promotes respiratory health, supports circulation, supports prostate and breast health and is good for your brain.
