This discovery led Dr. Tan to develop Tocotrienol ingredients into dietary supplements with great phyto-nutrient value and rich in antioxidants. Dr. Tan continues his research into phyto-nutrients, and in particular Tocotrienols, and their impact and effect on cardiovascular disease, diabetes, atherosclerosis, cancer, myopathy and sarcopenia and cholesterol.
