The new superstar nutrient in arthritis treatment

If you suffer with painful joints from osteoarthritis, there's a new superstar on the block. This nutrient isn't new. But it's new to arthritis treatment. It's a special form of a very inexpensive vitamin. And this cheap vitamin may work as well as glucosamine sulfate — the very popular arthritis supplement.

A new study followed the effects of palm vitamin E on 64 patients with osteoarthritis. The researchers randomized the participants to receive either 1.5 g of glucosamine sulfate (a standard daily dose) or 400 mg of palm vitamin E for six months. At the end of the study, palm vitamin E matched glucosamine in effectiveness. And, of course, it was free of serious side effects.

Palm vitamin E contains about 30% tocopherols and 70% tocotrienols. Tocotrienols have an advantage over tocopherols. They have a different molecular structure. And that structure enables them to penetrate deeper into cells.

I've told you in the past how the delta form of tocotrienols dramatically helps vascular disease. This form also aids those with cancer. Now we see tocotrienols help those with osteoarthritis.

This overlooked hormone might be the real reason you still struggle with out-of-control blood sugar. But most doctors (even alternative doctors) ignore it completely.

You can find palm tocotrienols online as Tocomin from Carotech. However, the delta fraction of tocotrienols is the most active form. So, if you already use Delta Tocotrienols distributed by Advanced Bionutritionals, you may have what you need already. Take two softgels daily. That should provide what you need. If you take advantage of the 6-month price, this will cost you only 67 cents a day. That's less than most co-pays for arthritis drugs — and you won't have any negative side effects.
