Who is Dr. Barrie Tan
Dr. Barrie Tan is renowned as the world’s leading scientist and expert on Vitamin E. His extensive research, spanning over 30 years, has primarily focused on nutrients sourced from the Annatto plant, a wonder plant from the Amazon. His work has led to significant discoveries in the field, notably identifying and developing tocotrienols and geranylgeraniol.
Known for his passion for exploring the health benefits of these compounds, Dr. Tan’s contributions have been pivotal in advancing our understanding of Annatto-sourced ingredients and their applications in health and wellness.
Annatto Sourced Ingredients by Dr. Barrie Tan
Annatto, derived from the seeds of the achiote tree (Bixa orellana), has been a part of human history for centuries, primarily in Central and South America. Its earliest recorded use dates back to the ancient Maya and Aztec civilizations, where it was used for its vibrant red dye, both in textiles and as body paint.
This dye, obtained from the waxy coating of the seeds, was not just cosmetic but often played a role in religious and cultural rituals. In traditional medicine, Annatto was valued for its therapeutic properties.
Indigenous people used it to treat various ailments, from skin irritations to digestive problems. Its role in food as a natural coloring agent also emerged during these times, adding a distinct hue to foods and symbolizing vitality and health.
Dr. Barrie Tan has harnessed and applied this ancient wisdom to modern science, particularly in Vitamin E research. He discovered that Annatto seeds are rich in Tocotrienols Vitamin E source. He has been using this plant to develop advanced health supplements.
1. Eannatto DeltaGold® Tocotrienols – Revolutionary Vitamin E Supplement
Eannatto DeltaGold® Tocotrienols signify a significant advancement in Vitamin E supplements. Unlike traditional Vitamin E, which is predominantly composed of tocopherols, DeltaGold® primarily contains tocotrienols, particularly the Delta and Gamma forms.
These forms are acclaimed for their exceptional antioxidant properties, offering holistic benefits for cardiometabolic health, skin, bone, and antioxidant support.
This innovative development by Dr. Barrie Tan marks a substantial contribution to nutritional science, providing a more effective and holistic approach to Vitamin E supplementation.
- 50X more potent than tocopherols
- Enhanced antioxidant capacity
- Patent Protected DeltaGold® formulation
- May support heart health, skincare, and bone strength
GG-Essential GG-Gold® - Building Block of Healthy Aging
GG-Essential GG-Gold® is a product developed under the expertise of Dr. Tan, focusing on Geranylgeraniol (GG). This compound is essential for the body’s metabolism, contributing significantly to hormone synthesis and the production of CoQ10, a critical nutrient for cellular energy.
GG is produced in the body through the mevalonate biochemical pathway and is a building block for protein synthesis, progesterone, testosterone, CoQ10, and Vitamin MK4 (an active form of Vitamin K2).
As GG production decreases with age, supplementation becomes necessary to maintain energy levels, physiological functions, and structural support and mitigate age-related decline.
- Patent Protected GG-Gold® formulation
- Supports healthy aging
- Maintains overall physiological functions
- Supports CoQ10 production
- Encourages cellular energy production
3. Bio-Qunol Ubiquinol plus GG (active CoQ10) as DuoQuinol®
Bio-Qunol, a unique formulation developed under the guidance of Dr. Tan, combines Ubiquinol, an active form of CoQ10, with Geranylgeraniol (GG). This innovative supplement is part of the Annatto product line and offers a novel approach to health and vitality.
Ubiquinol, known for its role in energy production and antioxidant protection at the cellular level, enhances the supplement’s effectiveness when paired with GG. Bio-Qunol is the first bioavailable CoQ10 supplement to incorporate both Ubiquinol and GG, making it a robust health supplement.
- Patent Protected DuoQuinol® formulation
- Combination of Ubiquinol and GG
- Beneficial for individuals on statin therapy
- Boosts cellular energy
