    According to Dr. J Shiv Kumar, Senior Consultant Cardiologist, Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad, “Heart attack is an epidemic in our country with over 3 Crore people suffering from a heart disease and more than 3 Lakh new cases of Heart Attack reported every year. The main reason for this is the Deposition of Fat in the coronary artery. The main culprits are the diet and habits of the people. The diet, mostly the oil consumed should have low saturated fats and high PUFA & MUFA content as it helps in staying heart-healthy. Rice Bran Oil fits the bill and therefore must be used for good heart health.”

    Moreover “The active constituents in the Rice Bran oil (Gamma oryzanol and Vitamin E) improve blood cholesterol by reducing total plasma cholesterol and triglycerides, and increase the proportion of HDL (good) cholesterol. Moreover, Food cooked in Rice Bran Oil absorbs up to 20% less oil, resulting in reduced calories, lighter tasting, and enhanced flavour and palatability as it sticks less to the food and the tongue. Thus, less absorption of fat helps in reducing weight. In addition, Oryzanol helps fight ‘metabolic syndrome’, a leading cause of obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease. Rice bran oil can also be safely be used for deep frying of foods.”, said Dr.Shalini P Reddy, MD, FRCA Columbus Ohio, USA.
