Summary
"A New Avenue of Research Beyond Traditional Studies of Vitamin E. The first 90 years of vitamin E research has produced prolific and notable discoveries. Until the last few decades, attention has been given mostly to the biological activities and underlying mechanisms of alpha-tocopherol, which we now know is one of more than eight vitamin E isomers. Tocotrienol discovery came much later, in 1965, but existed for almost 20 years as an obscure vitamin E. Explores Treatment Possibilities: Tocotrienols have proven to contain some exceptional benefits that aren't shared by the better known tocopherols. Although both are antioxidants, today a bright spot for tocotrienol research is in cancer and heart disease, while emergent fields of tocotrienol research are on the rise with many covered in this edition. Currently, tocotrienols have reached a new measure of research height: more than one-third of all vitamin E tocotrienol research of the last 30 years was published in the last 3 years. The thriving field of tocotrienol research gives ground for publication of this 2nd edition, a compilation of the latest tocotrienol research in all new chapters. For the past 10 years, Professors Ronald R. Watson and Victor R. Preedy have published books on bioactive nutrients and dietary supplements. Professor Watson has been and is currently funded to do research by grants from the American Heart Foundation and the U.S. National Institute of Heart, Lung, and Blood. By gathering the contributions contained in this volume, they have expanded the field of knowledge and forged a new path in disease treatment and prevention"--Provided by publisher
