 Rice Bran Oil can Help Reduce Cholesterol
Oryzanol present in rice bran oil can protect a person from the dangers of coronary heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, reveals study.

Rice bran oil is the oil extracted from the oily layer in between the paddy husk and the white rice(polished rice). It is nutritionally superior edible oil providing immense benefits for the heart and general health which is one reason why the Japanese call it the 'heart oil', Diabetic Living India magazine reported.

According to human clinical studies conducted in the University of Lowell, the oil has significantly better cholesterol lowering properties compared to other popular oils. Scientists have attributed this to presence of Oryzanol in the oil.
