Reduce arthritis pain with
vitamin E —
but not just any vitamin E
If you have painful joints from osteoarthritis, vitamin E might be able to help. But a new study says it has to be a special form of the vitamin.
The study followed 64 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. The researchers randomized the participants to receive one of two nutrients. They took either 1.5 g of glucosamine sulfate (a standard daily dose) or 400 mg of palm vitamin E. They gave the nutrients for six months. At the end of the study, they found that palm vitamin E was as effective as the glucosamine sulfate in reducing symptoms. Of course, it was free of serious side effects.
Palm vitamin E contains about 30% tocopherols and 70% tocotrienols. Tocotrienols have an advantage. Their molecular 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 helping osteoarthritis.
You can find palm tocotrienols online
as Tocomin from Carotech. The delta fraction of tocotrienols is the most active form. So, you might
consider Delta Tocotrienols from Advanced Bionutritionals instead. It should work as well, if not better. Take one daily.
