Stabilized Rice Bran is now widely available through the Internet or Health Food Stores, it wasn’t when I began using it almost 20 years ago. It is nutrient rich and contains over 100 anti-oxidants. You need to build your immune system and this is an excellent way to do this.
The benefits of Stabilized Rice Bran was initially discovered in India. Rice Bran, (the outer hull), is milled off of the rice to present an attractive product. Researchers discovered that mothers in India would go to the mill and gather the discarded Rice Bran and make a broth from it and give it to their sick children. The children, more often than not would recover. When they began to research the reason, they found that Rice Bran was filled with good things. As is often done, we discard the most beneficial part of the plant because we don’t like the look, the texture or the taste.
“Abnormal cells, bacteria, and viruses proliferate in our bodies all the time, but normally the immune system annihilates them before they have a chance to develop into illness, disease or cancer. Stabilized Rice Bran boosts this immune system to fight these.
The immune system is a complex network coordinating the activities that protect us from harmful microbial invaders (bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites) and stop abnormal cell proliferation. This system protects us from all types of illness and disease. But it can be weakened by nutritional deficiencies, prolonged illness and inflammation, and by the carcinogens, dangerous metals, poisons, toxins and stress we are exposed to every day.
When a person has a weakened immune system, even a simple cold or flu can escalate and become a life-threatening illness. Having a strong immune system is the best defense against illness and disease. Nutritionally strengthening and supporting the immune system is essential, especially after the age of 50 because the body’s natural defenses decline with age.
Sterols and Sterolins (found in plants) are great immune supporters. They help the immune system stop cancer, kill bacteria, destroy viruses and slow down the aging process. They have also been shown to keep patients infected with the HIV virus from developing AIDS. Stabilized rice bran has high concentrations of Sterolins and Phytosterols that have demonstrated potent antiviral and antibacterial effects.
Stabilized rice bran also contains the following immune system helpers:
- Polysaccharides (known to improve immune function)
- Gamma Oryzanol and other phytonutrients that increase immune response and reduce pro-inflammatory cytokines
- Omegas 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids and Tocopherols & Tocotrienols that have been shown to suppress auto anti-DNA antibodies
- CoQ10 which is a known immune booster routinely recommended as part of the treatment for people suffering from: Cardiovascular Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Muscular Dystrophy, Cancer, Diabetes Mellitus, Infertility, AIDS, Asthma, Thyroid Disorders, and Periodontal Disease
- Alpha Lipoic Acid which is extremely effective against oxidative stress and free radical destruction.
Lower Cancer Risk
Cancer is now the leading cause of death globally. It is estimated that cancer will kill 84 million people in the next ten years. While the causes of cancer are complex, it is well known that certain things can lower the risk of getting it. The most important recommendations are to avoid toxins and eat healthy foods. Stabilized rice bran has many nutrients that are known to help protect against cancer”. (WebND)
