Scientists have discovered that a particular type of vitamin E found in rice bran oil may have brain-protective powers.
All About E
Rice bran is derived from the husk of the rice kernel -- and an oil made from this bran is popular in Southeast Asian cooking. Rice bran oil is also great for stir-fries because it has a high smoke point -- meaning it's not likely to burn during this method of cooking. More importantly, rice bran oil is naturally rich in alpha-tocotrienols, a particular type of vitamin E. And scientists think this form of vitamin E could help protect the brain following a stroke. In animal studies, tocotrienols seem to save more brain cells in the event of a stroke, leaving the brain relatively intact.
