Deltanol™ is the “21st century vitamin E.” This excellent product features delta tocotrienol, the delta fraction of the vitamin E family that has the most significant properties for cardiovascular and circulatory health. Deltanol features delta and gamma tocotrienols that have been naturally sourced from annatto. Annatto comes from the nutrition-rich bean pods of the achiote tree‚ a majestic tree that grows mainly in warmer climates. Tocotrienols have been well researched for their antioxidant activity, which can fight free radicals to protect cells. Research supports evidence that tocotrienols may have even more powerful antioxidant properties than tocopherols (such as the typical type of vitamin E). Although normal metabolic processes of the body can contribute to certain amounts of free radicals, the body may be exposed to an excess production of free radicals caused by ongoing exposure to pollutants, toxins and other stressful factors. High levels of free radicals in the body can damage cells and break down their membranes, which is why the remarkable antioxidant capability of tocotrienols is so valuable.
