Last week, we talked about some of the benefits of rice bran. Today we want to get into more specific details about the nutrients contained in the rice bran.


Rice Bran is packed with hundreds of health-enhancing vital nutrients!


Protein — Stabilized rice bran contains easily digested, hypoallergenic essential amino acids that are necessary for building human protein.


Complex Carbohydrates — unlike simple carbohydrates, which can add to blood sugar and fat storage problems, healthy complex carbohydrates like those found in stabilized rice bran have a “low glycemic index,” which means that they don’t cause spikes in your blood sugar. In fact, stabilized rice bran has been found to help normalize blood sugar.


Fiber — Stabilized rice bran contains soluble and insoluble fibers necessary for optimum digestive health, blood sugar regulation, lowered cholesterol, and the prevention of diabetes and heart disease.


Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) — Omegas 3, 6 & 9 help to strengthen cellular membranes (so the bad stays out and the good stays inside cells). They also help with energy production (eliminating fatigue); transporting oxygen to the cells; removing waste from the cells; regulating hormones; reducing inflammation, pain, and stiffness; reducing LDL “bad” cholesterol & increasing HDL “good” cholesterol, not to mention, improving your complexion, mood, memory & concentration!


Enzymes — Enzymes are the catalyst that makes everything happen in our bodies. The enzymes in rice bran also act as powerful cell protectors. They are also some of the most powerful antioxidants we could ever ingest.


Tocotrienol’s & Tocopherols (Complete Vitamin E family known as tocols) — Tocols as a complete group are much more powerful than regular vitamin E. They are great for your cardiovascular system, your immune system, and your complexion!


Phytosterols and Sterolins (phytosterols glucosides) — These are natural phytonutrients with healthful properties that range from helping to fight free radicals, prevent cancer, reduce blood sugar and blood triglyceride levels, lower cholesterol, and ease menopausal symptoms.


Gamma Oryzanol Complex — this amazing group help boost immune response, reduce inflammation, increase energy, metabolize glucose, regulate blood sugar, build muscle, and more!


Polyphenols — including Ferulic acid, α-Lipoic acid, Methyl ferulate, ρ-Coumaric acid, ρ-Sinapic acid, Isovitexin, Proanthocyanidins. These have been shown to assist the immune system and to reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.


Metal Chelators — including Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorous, Potassium, and Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6). Getting heavy metals out helps to ensure that antioxidants don’t “turn to the dark side” and become pro-oxidized free radicals.


Carotenoids — Rice bran contains very effective free radical scavengers, including Lutein, α-Carotene, β-Carotene, Lycopene, Zeaxanthine, and Crytocyanthine.


B-Vitamins & Vitamin-like substances — including Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic acid, Pyridoxine, Betaine, Dimethyl glycine, Inositol, Biotin, Choline and Folic acid. These help reduce cholesterol buildup, support adrenal function, calm and maintain the nervous system, and assist in key metabolic processes.


Polysaccharides — These are known to help immune function, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and increase coronary artery flexibility and capacity.


Phospholipids — Phospholipids are essential fats that help support the growth and renewal of cellular membranes, forming a barrier to filter toxins out. They also act as cellular antioxidants when free radicals try to penetrate the cell. Phospholipids are also thought to prevent depletion of the neurotransmitter choline, improving mental focus, brain function, and both mental and physical stamina.


Rice bran is a functional food.
