TT No. 641: Nano-Tocotrienols

Palm-tocotrienols are widely recognised as high value nutraceuticals with enormous nutritional benefits. In addition to its role as a family of vitamin E, tocotrienols are also reported to exhibit distinctive functions such as lipid lowering and anti-ageing. While formulation of hydrophobic substances has always been a challenge in the pharmaceutical industry, nanotechnology provides an alternative solution.
