How long time "α-Tocotrienol (ab144451)"s biological half-life?
Asked on Jun 18 2014
Unfortunately, this is not something that we determine as we do not test our products in vivo.
I would suggest performing a literature search to determine the half life of α-Tocotrienol.
From my research, I have found a paper which describes that the mean apparent elimination half-life of α-, γ- and δ-tocotrienols was estimated to be 4.4, 4.3 and 2.3 h, respectively, being between 4.5- to 8.7-fold shorter than that reported for α-tocopherol.
For more information, please read the following paper:
