Canola oil and tocotrienols both significantly reduce inflammation

Daily supplementation with pure canola oil or canola oil enriched with 200 mg mixed tocotrienols significantly decreased inflammation markers (CRP) by 40 to 44% in individuals with Type 2 diabetes, with the larger decrease in the enriched group. Although the pure canola oil was intended to serve as a placebo, canola oil contains a substantial amount of vitamin E and omega-3 fats, making this more of a two-arm intervention than a placebo-controlled trial. However, both interventions were quite effective. View abstract.
