Ontario TV viewers recently learned how vitamin E tocotrienols extracted from Malaysian red palm fruit oil may soothe their dry, scaly and itchy winter skin.
Holistic pharmacist Sherry Torkos stopped by the CHCH Morning Live studio to explain that frying, sautéing or even baking with this heat-stable oil may help you "get some benefits of the positive fatty acids."
She added that palm oil, which is rich in vitamin E tocotrienols, is also available in soft gels.
Torkos believes regular tocotrienol supplementation helps with body cell hydration, fights UV deterioration and free radical damage that can lead to premature aging.
When we consume these powerful healing anti-oxidants we get to experience slowdown in skin aging from the inside out. So, this is a simple change we can make from a lifestyle perspective to improve our skin health, from what we eat and drink.
Another side benefit worthwhile to look out for is that tocotrienols may also improve heart-and brain-health.
