Dec 6, 2017: For those who suffer from heart disease or are at a high risk, one of the most important things that strikes the mind is to replace your cooking oil. It is in this sphere that health experts are suggesting people to try out rice bran oil. This vegetable oil is loaded with a number of health benefits and today we come with 3 core reasons as to why you should go for rice bran oil.
Rice bran oil is being regarded as one of the popular oils that promote health, particularly your heart.
Rice bran oil is loaded with vitamin E, a potent antioxidant, which helps in fighting free radicals. Therefore, increasing your consumption of vitamin E not only stops the accumulation of cholesterol on the walls of arteries but also reduces atherosclerosis and heart attack risks.
Since the oil is low in saturated fats and high in unsaturated fats (healthy fats); it is considered to be a healthy option for people at a high risk of heart disease or those already suffering from high cholesterol level. The presence of unsaturated fats nullifies the harmful effects of saturated fats and hence, aids in improved cholesterol control, which is a risk factor for heart disease.
Unlike olive oil which has a low smoke point, this miracle oil has a high smoke point, making it the best oil for Indian cooking standards. It also contains gamma oryzanol, which has cholesterol-lowering properties that not only reduces the absorption of but also boost the removal of cholesterol from the body. It is also known to decrease LDL (low-density protein) cholesterol level and increase your metabolism.
