Healing Properties

  • δTE-13′-COOH (13’-carboxychromanols) are a metabolite from δ-Tocotrienol (delta-tocotrienol).
    • δT-13’-COOH competitively and potently inhibits cyclooxygenases (COX-1 and COX-2) and is much stronger than tocopherols or short-chain metabolites in these effects.
    • Inhibition of COX can provide relief from the symptoms of inflammation and pain.
    • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin and ibuprofen, exert their effects through inhibition of COX.
    • Shown to significantly suppressed the growth and multiplicity of colon tumors in mice.
