ExcelVite Sdn. Bhd. was incorporated in August 2013 in Malaysia. Although the name is relatively new, ExcelVite’s history dates back to 1990 (as Carotech) when the company’s pioneering team began to commercially extract palm nutraceutical products such as tocotrienol (vitamin E) and mixed carotene from virgin red palm oil through a patented molecular distillation process.
ExcelVite is the world’s leading and largest GMP-certified integrated producer of natural full-spectrum tocotrienol complex (EVNol™), mixed carotene (EVTene™), palm phytosterol complex (EVRol™) and red palm oil concentrate (EVSpectra™). They are extracted and concentrated from sustainably sourced virgin red palm oil/palm fruits (Elaeis guineensis) in Peninsular Malaysia. These products are non-GMO, Kosher-Certified and Halal-Certified. Palm tocotrienols and carotenoids are both self-affirmed GRAS, with Letter of No Objection from FDA.
As the only GMP-certified tocotrienol manufacturer in the world, ExcelVite’s manufacturing facility in Chemor, Malaysia, has been inspected by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2012.
ExcelVite is committed to providing products and services with the highest quality. Stringent quality control is implemented throughout the process from sourcing; from quality control of raw materials; in-process controls; to final analysis of finished products using highly sophisticated and complex instruments. The high-end, state-of-the art laboratory of ExcelVite is accredited with ISO/IEC 17025 (Chemical and Microbiology) accreditation. The accreditation reflects our commitment to ensuring quality and gives customer the confidence that we operate in conformance to established standards and practices.
ExcelVite’s flagship product, EVNol SupraBio™ is a patented and self-emulsifying tocotrienol system that ensures consistent and improved absorption of each individual isoform of tocotrienols into the blood plasma compared to a regular tocotrienol oil extract. EVNol SupraBio™ has been selected and used by numerous researchers worldwide, with more than 13 published human clinical papers, including the NIH funded clinical studies on neuroprotection. Hence, EVNol SupraBio™ is the most bio-available and most-researched tocotrienols in the market.
ExcelVite maintains three sales and marketing offices respectively in the USA, Malaysia and Australia. These offices serve to strengthen the position of ExcelVite in the U.S. market and throughout the world and to provide the best possible service to existing clients as well as establish new opportunities for the company.
ExcelVite continues to develop, produce and market high-quality products at competitive prices, backed with comprehensive customer service and science. We are committed to finding the best opportunities for our customers and adding new capabilities that will solidify our position as the leading and largest producer of tocotrienol and palm mixed carotene in the world.
