    anti-angiogenesis effects of tocotrienols


    So I found a study that states that angiogenesis is inhibited by consuming tocotrienols.

    Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels sprouting from old ones. Endurance training is supposed to bring about angiogenesis I think, so would this not be a bad thing?

    Here's the article off pubmed: Anti-angiogenic function of tocotrienol. [Asia Pac J Clin Nutr. 2008] - PubMed Result

    It's a good thing as it relates to tumors.

    So yeah, this would be considered a good thing.

    On the flip side, Tocotrienols have actually been found to increase blood flow to bodily tissue (ie, the scalp) by having an anti-atherosclerotic effect. (cleaning of arteries)

    Yep! Tocotrienols are one of my (daily) staples...

    I take it that you have a firm belief that smoking cigarettes is bad for the hair and skin.

    Yes, I would assume so.

    You mean an anti-atherosclerotic effect?
