Tocotrienols, a form of vitamin E, might be the key to protecting our nerves from further neurological damage. Our nervous system is a complex and delicate structure of nerve cells, also known as neurons, and support cells that governs every part of our body. Everything that we feel and everything that we do, is transmitted and interpreted through this intricate informational highway that connects every cell within us. Currently, there is a high level of interest in applying neuroprotective principles in the prevention and treatment of diseases involving the CNS, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, schizophrenia, and stroke. A researcher at the Ohio State University Medical Center, United States, Prof Chandan K. Sen first started to look seriously into tocotrienols — a natural form of vitamin E found in abundance in palm oil — and neuroprotection since 1998.
