Looking at this since it contains more active and is cheaper than PP's Toco-8. Anyone with comments??
High Absorption Formula. Mixed Tocotrienols and Vitamin E
Up to 3X Greater Absorption. TocoSorb™ tocotrienol Vitamin E complex utilizes SupraBio™ enhanced absorption system. Tocotrienols protect cardiovascular function by affecting biosynthesis of cholesterol (mevalonate pathway) and reducing oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL-Cholesterol).
Typically, bioavailability of tocotrienols is low (absolute bioavailability is about 28%). Patented SupraBio™ specialized lipid mixture enhances tocotrienol uptake 2-3 times.

So tocosorb is a very slightly better deal if you only consider quantity of tocotrienols. Toco8 has more of everything else. Toco8 is also not capped, and since tocotrienols are sensitive to heat I would consider this important. Toco8 is also not sitting in stocked shelves for a year, and is shipped almost as fast as it is bottled.
I definitely give the win to toco8, but it is close enough.

Gamma Tocopherol is the key tocopherol you want.
I would still have to say Toco-8 is superior, even adjusted for cost.

Ordered two bottles of Toco-8 while it was on sale... should've gotten four.

and in regards to cost, I typically grab toco8 as part of one of their stacks (TRS, etc), which cuts cost quite a bit. Also, the new PP points program looks like a pretty good deal as well.
