Abstract

Numerous nutraceutical applications have been explored during the last decades. The present study is based on extraction of oil from super kernel basmati rice which has shown effective analgesic, anti- inflammatory, and anti-arthiritic activities. The feeding experiments on male Wister rats and female Sprague-dawley (SD) rats have elaborated the therapeutic value of variety of bioactive components including γ-oryzanol present in the oil.
