|Proprietary “Enrich” Blend|
|Soluble stabilized rice bran and rice germ||Natural rice bran from Brazil is one of the most nutrient-dense compounds known to man. Stabilized rice bran is the source of a newly discovered complex of vitamin E and tocotrienols, along with tocopherol, the compound generally called vitamin E. Tocotrienol compounds are 40-60 times more potent than other antioxidants, the vital nutrients that fight free radicals in our bodies. Free radicals may cause premature aging and degenerative diseases. Rice bran contains over 100 of these antioxidants and co-factors to help you feel young and healthy and supply your body with more than its daily nutritional needs.
Another special element of stabilized rice bran is lipoic acid. Lipoic acid produces energy in muscles and is an important part of the antioxidant system. It directs calories into energy production and away from fat production. Lipoic acid is known as the “universal antioxidant” that helps protect body components from oxidative stress damage.
