About Dr. Barrie Tan:

Dr. Barrie Tan, first and foremost a scientist with a Ph. D. in Chemistry/Biochemistry, was formerly an assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst (Chemistry, Food Science & Nutrition). For the last 35 years, Barrie has immersed himself in the world of Vitamin E and is considered one of the world’s foremost experts, credited with commercializing tocotrienol in 3 major natural sources – palm, rice and annatto. His first discoveries were in palm & rice, but due to their high levels of tocopherol, they also lacked potency. Barrie continued his research and was soon rewarded when he found the best-in-class tocotrienol in the annatto plant! Barrie’s relationship with annatto has spanned more than 20 years and multiple clinical trials across chronic diseases. He was again rewarded when he discovered geranylgeraniol, an endogenous nutrient that’s important to promote healthy aging.
