Accessory Nutrients and Essential Oils


General Features

Gamma-Oryzanol (esters of ferulic acid) is a growth-promoting substance in grains and is isolated from rice bran oil for

use as a supplement. In 1970 Gamma-Oryzanol was approved as a medicinal treatment to lower cholesterol and

triglycerides (Japan).1 As far back as the 1960’s, Gamma-Oryzanol was shown to be ef ective in the treatment of

menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes, and subsequent studies have supported these findings.1

Orally administered Gamma-Oryzanol is converted in the body to free ferulic acid.2
