Early-stage discoveries: Vitamin E and heart
In the lab, alpha-tocopherol, and alpha-, gamma-, and delta-tocotrienols reduced abnormal enlarging and thickening of the heart muscle in obese rats, and reduced inflammation.

Gamma and delta-tocotrienols improved cardiovascular function and normalized systolic blood pressure.

Delta-tocotrienol improved glucose tolerance, insulin sensitivity, lipids, abdominal fat, liver structure, and function.
