Life Extension Super Absorbable Tocotrienols: The adult scalp loses about 100 hairs every day. Starting from the age of 40, hair follicles shrink causing hair to grow back thinner, or worse, not at all. While the prevention and treatment are complex, using a supplement with tocotrienols can be pivotal in addressing the mechanisms that lead to thinning hair. Most people don’t realize that vitamin E is composed of eight different compounds. Many people only focus on the four vitamin E compounds called tocopherols. But vitamin E tocotrienols have plenty of health benefits as well and offer potent antioxidant protection to boot. Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Super Absorbable Tocotrienols combat the underlying causes of hair loss, supporting otherwise healthy hair follicles that genetic disposition, advancing age, and sebum buildup may cause to weaken, degrade, or shrink. Super Absorbable Tocotrienols can be taken to support youthful hair thickness and growth. (10). In several studies, volunteers who took tocotrienols for several months, all showed significant improvement in hair thickness and density. (10).
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Life Extension's Super-Absorbable Tocotrienols soft gels deliver high-quality vitamin E tocotrienols derived from red palm oil from the Elaeis guineensis tree. Because of their specific chemical structure, tocotrienols provide potent antioxidant benefits throughout the body.
