In Vivo Angiogenesis Is Suppressed by Unsaturated Vitamin E, Tocotrienol
Vitamin E continues to take undeserving hits on its reputation, but the reality is that, in almost all of these cases we are talking about only one form of Vit E, the alpha form. Mother Nature provides us with multiple forms of tocopherols, including their cousins the tocotrienols. Any good supplemental form of Vit E is going to have a mix of tochopherols. Giving high levels of just one form of Vit E can actually drive down levels of other forms of Vit E.
In this study, we see that tocotrienols have the ability to inhibit angiogenesis, an absolutely necessary process for tumors to create new blood vessels to feed its voracious appetite for nutrients.
