Category - Gamma Oryzanol

Gamma oryzanol is a substance derived from rice bran oil. Gamma oryzanol is being consumed by bodybuilders due to its supposed anabolic effects. The compound is claimed to increase testosterone production and stimulate human growth hormone release, as well as improving strength during resistance exercise training. Studies show no differences between gamma oryzanol and placebo. Furthermore, scientific studies indicate that gamma oryzanol is poorly absorbed. It has been shown that less than 5% orally supplemented oryzanol is absorbed.
