It can reduce diabetes-linked damage to the nerves, eyes and kidneys, says an endocrinologist

Dr Khalid Abdul Kadir of Monash University said he had found that nerve damage was reduced in diabetics who were given 400 mg per day of Vitamin E tocotrienols derived from palm oil.

Non-communicable diseases like diabetes and hypertension can cause metabolic stress and increases in oxidation products in the body.

He said this showed that in theory, at least, a diet supplemented with red palm oil could help slow down progression to diabetes and prevent eye, nerve and kidney damage in people who are already diabetic.

The vitamin also exists in the form of tocopherols, but tocotrienols are 30 to 40 times more potent.
