All the health benefits of red palm oil in just one softgel per day! By now you may have heard about red palm oil, heralded on popular television as one of “13 miracles for 2013” because of its remarkable benefits for the cardiovascular system, the brain and other organs and tissues throughout the body.
What sets red palm oil apart from all other healthy oils is its amazing antioxidant profile. The oil’s rich red color comes from high concentrations of carotenoids, including beta carotene, alpha carotene and lycopene—all of which are powerful free-radical fighters. Red palm oil is also a source of vitamin E, with an incredibly high concentration of heart-healthy tocotrienols. But the benefits of red palm oil go beyond its antioxidant activity. Red palm oil is an outstanding quick-energy source because its medium-chain fatty acids are metabolized in the liver for immediate energy rather than stored as fat, making it a great way to ignite your metabolism for healthy weight management.
The experts say you can get all the amazing health benefits of red palm oil with just two tablespoons per day, but with Swanson Ultra Red Palm Oil Concentrate it’s even easier. Our softgels feature SPECTRA 10/5, an ultra-potent 100:1 concentrate of oil from sustainably grown red palm fruit. Just one softgel delivers all the phytonutrients of two tablespoons of red palm oil fortified with 750 mg of medium-chain triglycerides. The manufacturer of SPECTRA 10/5 is committed to sustainability, sourcing all palm oil from existing cropland in Peninsular Malaysia, never from cleared rainforest land, and is a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.
