Complete Tocotrienol Complex FORTRIENOL® provides the full spectrum of tocotrienol isomers in an optimal ratio of 3:1 to alpha-tocopherol. Research has found that a high ratio content of tocopherol could potentially interfere with the cholesterol-lowering action of tocotrienol.  Extracts from rice bran oil have a tocotrienol:tocopherol ratio of 1:1 and are thus less favorable. Extracts from both rice bran oil and annatto beans are also deficient in key tocotrienol isomers. As we now know, each individual tocotrienol isomer has its own unique protective and beneficial abilities. Hence it is very important to have access to the full spectrum of tocotrienols as provided by FORTRIENOL®.
