BENEFITS - (Body)
Combat free radicals! Clear pollutants from cells! Promote better circulation! Rice bran is rich in antioxidants: Tocopherol, Oryzanol and Tocotrienol.
Tocopherol is a fat soluble substance, essential for human health. Oryzanol, a powerful antioxidant, is only found in Rice Bran oil. It's more effective fighting free radicals than vitamin E. Gamma oryzanol is up to ten times higher, than vitamin e, in rice bran. Tocotrienol is the most powerful vitamin E antioxidant, in nature!
Fight obesity! According to Dr. Oz, gamma oryzanol convinces cells to
burn up sugar in blood that would normally be deposited on the hips and
belly. It reduces absorption of cholesterol from foods you eat. Omega 6 fatty acids decrease the appetite and helps you feel full. Use cold pressed versions, for better health, with fewer impurities.
