What is Annatto E and Why Do I Need It?

Heart and blood health is vital to your body’s everyday functioning as well as your long term health. At FX Chocolate, your overall wellness is important to us. Our products contain Annatto E, an all-natural vitamin E supplement that helps promote cardiovascular health on top of its other benefits. This unique product contains tocotrienols sourced from the annatto tree and supports healthy bones, eyes, skin, and cholesterol.

What is Annatto E?

Any explanation of the benefits of Annatto E must include a discussion on Vitamin E. Vitamin E is necessary for several important functions in your body:

  • Protects Vitamin A
  • Helps prevent excessive clotting
  • Improves heart and cellular respiration
  • Stabilizes blood lipids (such as triglycerides and cholesterol)
  • Protects cell membranes
  • Acts as an antioxidant
  • Reduces inflammation

There are two families of Vitamin E: tocopherols and tocotrienols. 

  • Tocopherols: The latest research indicates that tocopherols have a higher antioxidant capacity than other supplements. Tocopherols are the components of Vitamin E that reduce inflammation, improve cholesterol levels, and support eye, skin, and bone health. They have superior bioavailability, which means that the majority of the tocopherols you consume enter your bloodstream and have an active effect.
  • Tocotrienols: Research has shown that tocopherols may interfere with the therapeutic effects of tocopherols. It is therefore more desirable to dose tocopherols only. If you take any other supplements that contain alpha-tocopherol, it is recommended to separate your supplements by at least six hours to maximize your benefits.

Rich sources of Vitamin E in your diet include whole grains (including wheat, barley, rice, corn, oats, and more), leafy greens, and palm fruit. However, most of these foods are higher in tocopherols than tocotrienols. The richest known source of naturally occurring tocotrienols is the annatto tree; nearly 100% of this Latin American tree is made up of potent tocotrienols, while it is almost completely free of tocotrienols. Annatto E is a unique compound that is sourced from this tree, giving you all the benefits of Vitamin E in its most potent form.
