In 2015, researchers found palm-based tocotrienols provided protection against stress induced ulcers in animals. The study found that gastroprotective effect is likely related to the ability of tocotrienols to support gastric antioxidant enzyme activity. This supports earlier animal research and suggests that the tocotrienols in Palm Fruit can help support a healthy digestive tract. Try mixing your Palm Fruit with yogurt or kefir for belly nourishing snack.

In 2008, researchers from the School of Medical Sciences found that 100 mg/day of palm-based tocotrienols improved arterial function in healthy adults after only 8 weeks of supplementation. Tocotrienols work by supporting blood vessel flexibility and dilation, which supports healthy blood flow. Each serving of Palm Fruit contains the effective dose of tocotrienols for supporting healthy circulation, available only at botanicalcraft.com

Our Palm Fruit is the highest potency palm-based extract in the world. A single scoop contains the same phytonutrient content as 1 cup of red palm oil. The phytonutrients are extracted by a patented low-temperature vacuum distillation process. This creates an extract rich in naturally occurring tocotrienols, tocopherols, carotenoids, phytosterols, coenzyme-Q10, plastochromanols, and dozens of other phytonutrients that revitalize skin, hair growth, and circulation.

Our Palm Fruit is manufactured to ensure FDA/GMP compliance. Each batch is sent to a 3rd party lab and tested by HPLC and spectrophotometry for the identity and potency of 15 different phytonutrients, then verified to be free of dangerous heavy metals and bacterial contamination. The end result is the safest and most effective tocotrienol and carotenoid extract in the world -- only from www.botanicalcraft.com

At the FCG Research Institute in Japan, healthy women with dry skin were given capsules containing 40 mg of palm-based tocotrienols + 2 mg of astaxanthin per day for 4 weeks. In the supplemented group skin hydration increased while the appearance of wrinkles decreased significantly after 4 weeks. Our Palm Fruit contains a 117 mg of palm-based tocotrienols and 10 mg of carotenoids per serving which provides a clinically effective dose for healthy skin hydration and appearance. Even greater cosmetic benefit may be achieved by taking Palm Fruit with 2-4 mg of astaxanthin.

Proud to see our Palm Fruit featured in the Wall Street Journal! Our nutritional science consultant, Eric Potratz, had the pleasure of speaking with Laura Johannes about palm fruit based tocotrienols & carotenoids and the human research behind the skin protection and hair loss prevention.

In two human clinical trials, 8 months of supplementation with palm fruit based tocotrienols (145 mg/day) increased the number of hairs on the scalp by an average of 38% in men and women suffering from hair loss. Tocotrienols are known to stimulate several growth factors that stimulate hair growth (e.g., ↑IGF-1, ↑VEGF, ↑FGF-7, ↓TGF-b, ↓MMP-1). Each serving of Palm Fruit contains the clinically effective dose for hair growth.

Fresh luscious clusters of palm fruit being loaded up for processing. Unfortunately you won't find these fruits in the grocery store. As soon as they are cut from the tree it activates an enzyme within the fruit that makes them go rancid within days. So these little fruits are immediately processed for oil (red palm oil) which remains stable for many months.

DNA damage contributes to aging and cell dysfunction. In one human study, 160 mg/day of palm-based vitamin E for 6 months lead to a 43% reduction in DNA damage. This effect was attributed to the broad spectrum antioxidant protection from tocotrienols and tocopherols. Regular vitamin E (i.e., alpha-tocopherol) does not have this benefit. One serving of Palm Fruit provides the clinically effective dose for DNA protection.
