Nutritional Spotlight: Tocos

If we told you that you should be working “rice bran solubles” into your day, would you think we were crazy? They might not sound like the sexiest superfood, but rice bran solubles — also known as tocotrienols or tocos — are a secret weapon of alternative health practitioners.

Rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals, tocos can rival even your daily multivitamin when it comes to nutrient density.

The Benefits

Though rich in many vitamins and minerals, tocos is best known for its impressive amounts of vitamin E, a vitamin that becomes more and more important for us as we age. On the inside, research has shown that vitamin E can enhance immunity in men and women over 60, and it plays a role in preventing heart disease and strokes. On the outside, vitamin E can help skin stay healthy and maintain elasticity. Forget the fancy creams: You might just need a dose of this “skin food” in your next latte.

The Best Bet

Sun Potion’s tocos powder has a cult following amongst the wellness minded. Use a scoop or two of this superfood in your next smoothie, latte, or cup of tea. And did we mention it tastes like vanilla ice cream? You’re welcome.
