Malaysian palm tocotrienol supplier ExcelVite is finding out how its flagship ingredient could provide new health benefits.

In the past 20 years, it has been studying the benefits of its flagship ingredient – EVNol SupraBio – on brain health. Other benefits that it has been researching on includes skin health. 

One of the key findings showed that consuming 200mg of EVNol SupraBio twice per day for one year is able to control the growth of white matter lesions in the brain.

Speaking to NutraIngredients-Asia​ at Vitafoods Asia held in Singapore, Noordiyanah Nadhirah Roslan, nutritionist at the firm, revealed the other ongoing research that the firm was conducting.

Advancing further into the area of brain health, the firm is researching how EVNol SupraBio could improve neurodegenerative diseases, with Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) – a type of roundworm – as a study model. 

With the rise of diabetic cases, the firm has also started to explore the potential of EVNol SupraBio on alleviating related health complications, such as kidney, nerve, and eye damage.
