Kyani Sunset is not your usual over-the-counter preparation of Vitamin E – it contains the perfect blend of Mother Nature’s healthiest and most potent lipid-soluble elements.
Kyani Sunset contains four important ingredients:
- Tocotrienol – the most potent form of Vitamin E
- Omega 3s (the finest of its kind) that comes from the Alaskan Sockeye Salmon
- Vitamin A (Beta-carotene)
- Vitamin D
Together, these four ingredients bring the 9 benefits of Kyani Sunset, which include:
- Reduction of inflammation
- Healthier skin and hair
- Better cardiovascular health
- Healthier cholesterol level
- Healthier blood sugar level
- Improvement of cognitive function
- Promotion of healthy immune response
- Better cell membrane function
- Anti-cancer prevention
Tocotrienol (the most potent Vitamin E)
Alpha-tocopherol is the well-known over-the-counter form of vitamin E. However, until recently, the scientific community started focusing its attention to alpha-tocopherol’s less known cousin, the tocotrienol, a powerful form of vitamin E that is 50 to 80 times more potent than alpha-tocopherol.
Kyani Sunset’s tocotrienol comes from the Amazon’s annato bush, an oily plant that yields the purest form of tocotrienol in the world. Studies show that tocotrienol keeps the cardiovascular system healthy by helping maintain a healthy blood pressure and reducing the blood cholesterol levels by up to 35 percent. Aside from these beneficial effects of tocotrienol to the cardiovascular system, researches reveal that tocotrienol anti-tumor and anti-cancer properties. It also has the ability to decrease arterial blockage thereby reducing the possibility of developing cardiovascular diseases in high risk individuals.
Alpha-tocopherol interferes with the action of tocotrienol. Alpha-tocopherol can block the intestinal absorption of tocotrienol, compromise tocotrienol’s cholesterol reducing capacity, attenuate tocotrienol’s cancer inhibition, and induce faster tocotrienol breakdown. In fact, scientists just recently discovered that taking alpha-tocopherol may even increase cholesterol level in high doses.
Omega 3s is an important fatty acid for maintaining a healthy body. Every cell within the human body, particularly the cells of the heart and the brain, contains omega 3s. However, our body does not produce its own source of omega 3s. This is the reason why we should get our supply of this essential fatty acids from the food we eat.
The Alaskan Sockeye Salmon has the finest and purest form of omega 3s in the animal kingdom and it has the highest levels of DHA and EFA, two of thee most important forms of omega 3s needed for normal cellular function.
Omega 3s has a very potent anti-inflammatory property. It also improves the delivery of oxygenated blood and nutrients throughout the body by supporting the arteries and heart health.
Vitamin A (beta-carotene) is an essential nutrient from plants and vegetables needed for healthy eye and brain function. It also protects the cells from oxidation damage and improves the body’s immunity against diseases.
Vitamin D is a very important vitamin for normal growth and development. It helps in the proper absorption of calcium, an important mineral needed to facilitate healthy bone development and strength. Aside from this very important function, Vitamin D also helps improve the body’s immunity and reduce inflammation.
