A team of researchers from Malaysia and Libya recently investigated the effect of Vitamin E, extracted from palm oil, on rat liver mice as its compound is known to have antioxidant effects that protect cells from damage to toxic chemicals produced by metabolic processes.
Vitamin E extracted from palm oil helps to increase the body’s immune response, enhancing research found in rat liver cells.
Palm oil is rich in vitamin E, which includes tocopherols and tocotrienols. These compounds have antioxidant effects, which protect cells from damage from toxic chemicals produced by metabolic processes. While tocopherol is a well-known and researched compound, there is still much to learn about tocotrienols.
A team of researchers from Malaysia and Libya recently investigated the effect of tocotrienols extracted from palm oil into rat liver mice.
The team investigated genetic expression levels influenced by the Nrf2 transcription factor, and the transfer of the same substance to the cellular nucleus. Nrf2 is known to alter the second phase of drug metabolism in response to metabolic processes. Genetics use cellular protective mechanisms.
“Our study is the first in vivo study on the effect of tocotrienols on Nrf2on genetic material in the nucleus,” said Azman Abdullah (Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia), co-author of the study.
The team noted that the transmission of Nrf2 to rat liver cells was dose-dependent, and effective.
“We have seen that the major effect of Nrf2 transfer into the cell nucleus after the control of palm oil extraction took place within 60 minutes of administration,” Abdullah said.
Palm oil is a great source of vitamin E, and many studies have shown beneficial effects on the immune system, including the anti-oxidant and anti-cancer activity and its protective actions. remedies for a variety of diseases. The current study was published in Current Pharmaceutical Biotechnology.
