McCauley's Rice Bran Oil is excellent for improving the body condition of horses, especially those that are unable or unwilling to consume more feed.One gallon of rice bran oil is equivalent to the oil content of approximately 36 pounds of rice bran. Natural antioxidants, notably various forms of vitamin E and oryzanols are present in significant levels. The antioxidant property of vitamin E helps to maintain cell membrane structure, red blood cell stability and capillary blood vessel integrity. Furthermore, the more active the cell (e.g. muscle cells), the greater is the risk of tissue damage if vitamin E is limiting. Hence, vitamin E helps prevent muscle damage, inflammation and "tying-up" in horses. Another important function of vitamin E is its role in maximizing the immune function. Besides having an antioxidative function, gamma-oryzanol is listed in The Merck Index (12th ed., 1996) as an anti-ulcerative. Therefore, McCauley?s Rice Bran Oil may also reduce the incidence or severity of gastric ulcers. McCauley's Rice Bran Oil contains approximately 2% gamma-oryzanol. Therefore, 2.5 fluid ounces (2.28 ounces by weight) will contain 1290 mg of gamma-oryzanol, which is higher than the daily dose of most equine "body building" supplements. (Please note: After an exhaustive search, no research could be found to support the body building effect of gamma-oryzanol in horses or humans.)
