Tocotrienols have shown superior action in maintaining arterial health. This wonder nutrient is so effective because of its structure of double bonds in the isoprenoid side chain, making it a great scavenger of free radicals.
Sesame lignans have been added to help block or inhibit the enzyme that breaks down tocotrienols allowing tissue levels of tocotrienols to build up in the body. This translates into much greater antioxidant protection, decreasing destructive free radicals.
A study of Swedish women showed supplementing with sesame oil increased gamma-tocopherol levels 41.7% without any other sources of tocopherols.
Sesame lignans have been shown to have the ability to lower a measure of oxidative cell membrane/DNA damage by 82%. The isoprostane marker measures the amount of cell membrane (also called lipid peroxidation) damage caused by free radicals. Life Extension’s in-house study showed a reduction in serum isoprostane levels after two weeks of supplementation of tocopherols with sesame. The in-house study also showed a substantial decrease of dityrosine (marker which measures serum levels of deep tissue protein oxidation caused by peroxynitrite radical reacting with tyrosine) by 22%.
