Sun Potion Tocos is derived from the Bran of Organically Grown Brown Rice. Bran is the powerhouse of the sprouting rice and contains all the nutrients required for the rices early development and growth.

It also contains naturally occuring Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Iron, Zinc, Manganese, Copper, Iodine and other Trace Minerals
Research studies suggest that Vitamin E has numerous health benefits. Vitamin E is thought to play a role in preventing atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases (heart disease and stroke) due to its effects on a number of steps in the development of athersclosis (e.g. inhibition of LDL oxidation, inhibition of smooth muscle cell proliferation,inhibition of platelet adhesion, aggregation and platelet release reaction).
Recent studies suggest that vitamin E enhances immunity in the elderly, and that supplementation with vitamin E lowers the risk of respiratory tract infections, particularly the common cold.
There is a great deal of research underway investigating the role of Vitamin E in protecting against outside pollution and lowering the risk of cancer.
