UNIQUE E® Tocotrienols — Each beef softgel contains Tocopherol-FREE High-Delta and Gamma Delta-Gold® Tocotrienols derived from the Annatto Bean and contains the highest concentrates of tocotrienols at 125 mg per softgel. Unlike products derived from palm or rice bran oil our tocotrienols contain no alpha-tocopherol—which has been shown to inhibit assimilation of tocotrienols in the body. Taking them separately achieves maximum benefits. Our health professionals recommend taking tocotrienols with the evening meal.
Tocotrienols help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Research indicates that they may also contribute to improving vascular and cardiometabolic integrity, help support a healthy cardiovascular system, and help maintain normal blood glucose levels.*
Available in a 60-softgel bottle size.
UNIQUE E® Mixed Tocopherols and UNIQUE E® Tocotrienols are synergetic in their support for cardiovascular and metabolic health. They are most effective when taken separately though. We recommend that you take UNIQUE E® Mixed Tocopherols with your morning meal and UNIQUE E® Tocotrienols with your evening meal.*
Dr. Barrie Tan is responsible for discovering the only natural source of tocopherol-free tocotrienols – the annatto bean. A.C. Grace works directly with Dr. Tan’s company, American River Nutrition (ARN) to provide superior-quality natural source tocotrienols containing the highest contentrates at 125mg per softgel.
ARN is the sole distributor of this tocotrienol ingredient, which has been studied for its ability to support arterial health and vascular integrity. Tocotrienols are known for their antioxidant properties, especially delta-tocotrienol which—due to less methylation of its chromanol ring—is more adept at being incorporated into cell membranes.*
Tocotrienols have also been shown to support healthy blood pressure levels, probably through promoting healthy blood lipid levels (through antioxidant effects) and promoting appropriate nictric oxide synthase activity.*

UNIQUE E® Tocotrienols
Available in a 60-softgel bottle size.
Take one (1) 125 mg softgel daily with your evening meal. If you are consuming other dietary supplements that contain alpha-tocopherol, these should be taken in the morning. Alpha-tocopherol has been found to inhibit assimilation of tocotrienols in the body. Taking tocopherols and tocotrienols separately will help you achieve maximum benefits.*

I have been taking this unique E tocotrienol for
about a year and find it seems to enhance the effects of saw palmetto. I take it in the late afternoon or evening to avoid conflict with the tocopherols I take in the morning. I think it's the best one on the market and it is American made for decades.

I have read in medical journals that using Tocotrienols can help support health. I take saw palmetto along with Tocotrienols from A C Grace for specific health goals and I can tell a big difference in the effects on the performance of those goals. I would point out that if taken with Tocopherols at the same time, that may inhibit the action of both. This is the best grade of Tocotrienols on the market that I have found, and I have been into
nutrients from 1985 to current 2015.

I have researched vitamin E for some time. and I have seen where Doctors order from A.C. Grace, but that isn't the only reason I buy this product. There are many others who sell everything to cure everything of which I then see that they are in for the money. But A.C. Grace only does Vitamin E. Also I have read articles they have posted on their site and has helped immensely. e.g. You don't take Tocotrienols with Tocopherols as they cancel each other out. So I take one in the morning and the other in the evening. Other places that sell them don't tell you that and when I told them, my words fell on deaf ears. I pay more because I get more.
