Tocotrienols are widely utilized for their strong antioxidant properties. The various isoforms of tocotrienols differ in their methyl substitution in the chromanol head. In addition to its antioxidant properties γ-tocotrienol has been shown to inhibit the NF-κB activation pathway. γ-tocotrienol also acts as an inhibitor of HMG-CoA, the rate limiting enzyme in cholesterol biosynthesis.
