Nutrition – Starting From Zero

We are constantly bombarded with messages from the media telling us that foods we have consumed for years are suddenly bad for us. One day eggs are good for you, the next day they are bad for your heart – what is the actual situation now?

You can’t afford to miss the information in the new movie “Food Matters” – Click the Title to find out more.

You need to eat more leafy green vegetables, reduce your consumption of bad fats (saturated animal fats), increase your consumption of good fats (like olive oil and avocado), eat quality lean protein, eat more fish (but beware of the mercury!), reduce your intake of sugar. Eat fewer processed foods. So what is the bottom line? What are nutritionists trying to tell you? It all boils down to the fact that what you don’t eat is more important than what you do eat.

Start From Zero
The best way to figure out what you should be eating to live up to your highest health potential is to start from recording what you are eating. It’s so easy to forget that extra bit of something. So, use your digital camera or phone camera. Every time you eat, stop, think, take a picture. Remember that the camera doesn’t lie. At the end of each day, write a list of the foods shown in those pictures. This may take a while, but you will be able to see that most foods can be broken down into a few simple categories at their basic ingredients:

  • Meat (beef, pork,chicken, fish, other seafood, etc)
  • Dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt, cream, desserts, etc)
  • Corn products (bread, chips, popcorn, etc)
  • Wheat (pastas, breads, desserts, etc)
  • Soy (bread, desserts, drinks, anything processed, etc)
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Water
  • Energy drinks
  • Alcoholic drinks

Now take out a fresh piece of paper and add only the items that fall under the category of fruits and vegetables. This is what is called starting from zero. Remove everything that does not contribute to your health and only add back those items that you know are good for you. Mark whether the food is natural or processed. Aim for unprocessed, preferably organic, fruit and vegetables.

Why Fruits and Vegetables?

The governments of the world recommend that you eat between 5 to 10 fruits and vegetables every day. This recommendation is a great one and it has helped dozens of people lose weight and become healthier. It’s easy eat 5 to 10 fruits and vegetables a day by eliminating other snacks like muffins, cakes or cookies. Apples, bananas, mandarin’s, oranges are easy to take with you almost anywhere, just wash them at home to make life a bit easier.  Find out more about the colors of fruit & vegetables HERE

It is only by eliminating the unhealthy, extraneous or over-processed foods that you will be able to incorporate the recommended quantity of healthy ones.

The Building Blocks of Health
Think of this exercise as a way to build up your health, starting from the base. By eliminating meat, dairy and aggravating grains from your diet you prepare your body for proper nutrition. You allow yourself to cleanse and you provide your body with all the enzymes, the minerals and the vitamins that your body requires for proper functioning.

Find out more about Enzymes by viewing our Enzyme Series HERE

Looking at the new list of healthy foods, you might see that it needs to be improved upon a bit. Why not add some new and exotic fruits and vegetables that you never tried before? Add more healthful grains in the form of brown rice, quinoa, barley and buckwheat if you find you need something denser. Old fashioned foods like rolled oats are great for you as well as tasting good.

Give Yourself a New Start
By starting fresh you give your body a break and a chance to rejuvenate itself. If you decide that you would like to add some of the things from the original list back into your diet, do so only 30 days after this exercise. Then watch to see how your body reacts to this newly added food. If you don’t experience any side effects then you can continue to eat it, once again. Otherwise you have proof that it was never that good for you in the first place.

Natural News Article:NutraCea Invests in Rice Science to Bring Antioxidant Benefits of Stabilized Rice Bran to the Masses

“(NaturalNews) The rice bran ingredient manufacturer NutraCea has entered an agreement with HerbalScience Singapore to create two joint ventures to expand research, development and marketing of products based on stabilized rice bran.

The two companies are forming a third company, Rice Science, to develop stabilized rice bran extracts for use as a nutraceutical ingredient in foods and beverages. Rice Science will be 80 percent owned by NutraCea.

According to NutraCea, stabilized rice bran contains a variety of ingredients that provide benefits for preventing or treating arthritis and diabetes and improving immune health. Among the reasons cited for rice bran’s nutraceutical value are its high content of the vitamin E complexes referred to as tocotrienols and gamaoryzanol; B vitamins; betacarotne; and fiber. Rice bran is also high in powerful antioxidants.

“We know that stabilized rice bran contains a rich bounty of natural compounds at therapeutic levels,” said NutraCea Chief Executive Officer Brad Edson. “We believe by isolating these specific elements, we can create quantifiable isolates that have the potential to be measurably effective in dealing with some of the most serious health threats that we face today.”

In white rice, the bran and germ are discarded from the rice seed, and much of the nutritional content along with it…”

Cell Rejuvenation For Optimal Health – Part 9 – Daily Regime

Having learned about the things which affect your quality of life how do you protect yourself from the daily onslaught?

Develop a daily regime.

After all we are “attacked” on a daily basis, so it makes sense to protect yourself on a daily basis.

Your simple daily regime should include, the following (follow the links to read more about each):-

  • Drinking plenty of pure energized water – drink Hexagon Water
  • Intake of enzymes to preserve your “personal supply” and create a reserve – if you run out of enzymes you run out of life – drink Bio N-Zymes
  • Detoxification – a toxic body is a sick body – internal detox consume Chlorella – external detox apply Super Kino Plasters
  • A way to increase your alkalinity – an alkaline body is a step towards a healthier you – consume Wheatgrass and Japanese Plum Balls
  • Intake of essential nutrients – consume Chlorella, Spirulina and Stabilized Rice Bran
  • Intake of antioxidants – to fight free radicals which damage your body at a cellular level – consume Stabilized Rice Bran

LINK TO THE WRAP UP


Cell Rejuvenation For Optimal Health – Part 8 – Antioxidants

Did you know that studies show that antioxidants can prevent aging on a cellular level? This is where the aging process begins. They prevent one of the tell-tale signs of cellular aging – the accumulation of an “age” pigment called lipofuscin and AGE (advanced glycation end-products).

Accumulation of lipofuscin and AGE is the main cause of the signs of premature aging, such as wrinkles or brown spots on the skin, and can cause even more destruction inside your body.

Antioxidants can slow down their formation and dramatically keep your cells youthful for a longer period of time.

What are antioxidants? Basically they are a group of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phyto-nutrients, and phyto-chemicals that help protect your body from free radical damage. Free radicals are highly unstable molecules which are constantly being formed in our bodies as a result of oxidization (simply breathing oxygen causes this), toxins (like pollution, pesticides or house-cleaning chemicals), stress, include exposure to sunlight, cigarette smoke, a diet high in fat or sugar, processed food, medication, exercise, etc.

In short they are impossible to avoid.

Each cell in the body suffers at least 10,000 HITS by free radicals each day.

And there are close to 100 trillion cells in the body. Imagine the number of HITS your body suffers daily.

So, what can we do about it? We can consume antioxidants to help our bodies fight the effects of free radicals.

Stabilized Rice Bran has the highest ORAC score compared to 28 types of other antioxidant-rich food.

What is ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity)?

ORAC measures the antioxidant levels of a substance. A high ORAC score means that a particular substance is high in antioxidants.

Stabilized Rice Bran has ORAC score of 2,447 per 12g serve! Equivalent to 5 servings of fresh fruits & vegetables!

Beyond ORAC
Apart from Antioxidants that contribute to high ORAC score, Stabilized Rice Bran also contains Cofactors that work synergistically to offer More Effective & More Complete Protection.

Stabilized Rice Bran provides highest lipophilic (fat soluble) antioxidants compared to 28 types of other foods.

  • Lipophilic antioxidants have higher bio-availability and are preferred by cells.
  • Lipophilic antioxidant penetrates the cell membrane more easily and stay in the cell longer to fight free radical damage.

Impressive spectrum of both lipophilic (fat soluble) and hydrophilic(water soluble) antioxidants.

Protects the cell inside an out for a more complete protection against free radical damage.

Why Do You Need A Spectrum Of Antioxidants & Cofactors?

Even though Antioxidants can work independently but they work better as a team. Some Antioxidants can resuscitate one another when they get wiped out by free radical – this literally “recycles” the antioxidants. The best solution is to stick with eating foods that contain a broad spectrum of naturally occurring antioxidants and their cofactors.

Nn Stabilized Rice Bran is your solution!!

Cell Rejuvenation For Optimal Health – Part 4 – Eliminating Toxins

There are both external toxins (which we breathe in and absorb through our skin) and internal toxins (from water, food containing preservatives, additives, colorings, stabilizers and the like, medications, cell degeneration, free radicals, stress and other lifestyle issues).

Undigested food causes toxins – carbohydrates ferment, protein putrefies, fats turn rancid – all causing production of toxins. Slow movement through your digestive system (constipation) causes toxins to be absorbed by the body.

How do you help prevent these problems? Some ideas are:-

  • Correct diet and lifestyle choices – eat natural superfoods and get exercise

  • Proper digestion – consume Japanese Plum Balls and TummyTrimm
  • Antioxidants to combat free radicals which damage your cells and impair cellular function – Stabilized Rice Bran contains over 110 antioxidants.
  • Drink pure, energized water – Hexagon Water
  • Consume Chlorella to detoxify your body

TIP – Not just any Rice Bran will do. Nn Stabilized Rice Bran is special – find out why Here

I use one of those Magic Blenders with the juice attachment to make my juice and then use the mixer blade to wizz up the juice and Rice Bran.

SPECIAL TIP: Ever wondered what to do with the leftover fruit pulp? Sometimes I use it in a cake. I add it to a store bought cake mix, I omit the butter/margarine/oil component, but I do use the eggs per recipe and add some milk. I mix the ingredients thoroughly and use a loaf pan (buttered and floured inside) so the cake cooks evenly. I cook the cake in a slow oven for longer than the recipe time as it has so much moisture from the fruit pulp. Just keep an eye on it, when its risen and nice and brown on top (maybe after around 50 minutes) – it’s done.

What Is Fuelling Your Body? Empty Calories or Natural Superfoods?

Chemicals in processed food? “Empty calories” from high fat, high sugar foods or fast food?

Artifical this? Artificial that? It’s scary when you read the ingredient labels on some processed foods. You would need to be a scientist to even pronounce some of the ingredient names. And “they” expect us to eat it.

IN REALITY, NATURE KNOWS BEST!

Fresh whole foods really are what we should be eating. Nature has provided all the components to make a complete nutritionally balanced diet.

What’s more, because they are not processed they are more affordable, and with minimal packaging, the impact on the environment is lessened.

So what are nature’s whole foods?

Stabilized Rice Bran FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions


1. As brown rice contains some part of the bran, do I still need to take Nn Stabilized Rice Bran if my diet consists of significant amount of brown rice?
Yes, brown rice does contain some part of the bran however, untreated whole brown rice turns rancid very rapidly as the oil content is very high. Therefore, most of the brown rice available in the market is chemically treated for extended shelf life. Moreover, intact uncooked brown rice contains only 10-12% of the bran, therefore, in order to enjoy the same benefits provided by 12g x 2 servings per day of Nn Stabilized Rice bran, you’d need to consume 200g of uncooked brown rice or 4 bowls of cooked brown rice. Surely you can’t eat raw brown rice, even if you can eat up to 4 bowls of cooked brown rice, heat destroys nutrients. In other words, it’s impossible to enjoy the same benefits as taking Stabilized Rice Bran.

2. I’ve seen some rice bran products in the market and the price is leaning towards the lower side. How is Nn Stabilized Rice Bran different from those in the market?
The key word is STABILIZED. Rice Bran has always been a storehouse of health-enhancing nutrients and antioxidants, but until recently its nutritional power could not be tapped because it was easily oxidised (making it unfit for human consumption) or it was treated with high heat or chemicals (stripping its nutrient value). So far, not many companies are able to produce stabilized rice bran, therefore most rice bran products in the market are just normal rice bran, they are not stabilized without high heat or chemicals. As rice bran turns rancid/oxidised very quickly, taking rice bran that is not stabilized may introduce toxins into the body, including cancer-causing substances. Rice bran that has been oxidised is lower in nutritional value too.

Now, with NutraCea®’s patented, proprietary technology that stabilizes rice bran without adding chemicals & heat treatment or degrading its nutritional profile, we can finally harness the full goodness of rice bran.

3. Since rice bran is all about antioxidants and fibre, if I am currently on antioxidant and fibre supplements, do I still need to consume Nn Stabilized Rice Bran?
Good for you! Antioxidants are essential for many bodily functions and they help defend your body against the free radical attacks that are responsible for premature ageing & degenerative diseases.

You should still take Nn Stabilized Rice Bran along with your antioxidant formula, simply because Nn Stabilized Rice Bran will make your antioxidant formula even more potent and effective. The human body is a complex system and therefore an orchestra of antioxidant team members are needed to support one another perform. In a typical “battle” against free radicals, antioxidant gets wiped out – destroyed. However, some antioxidants can resuscitate other antioxidants making these antioxidants more available for the body, and to be used over and over again – for many more times before they get wiped out by the free radicals. Nn Stabilized Rice Bran provides you more than 110 antioxidants & cofactors for this function. It is a good antioxidant formula on its own, and when taken with your existing antioxidant formulas, it makes them even more powerful.
Moreover, some studies show that while some antioxidant is good for you, the presence of some heavy metals in the body can cause them to turn into a pro-oxidant. For example, taking huge amount of Vitamin C in the presence of free Iron may have the opposite effect – the Vitamin C may turn into pro-oxidant rather than function as an anti-oxidant. For these reasons, Nn Stabilized Rice Bran comes to the rescue again. It is rich in fibre to bind away heavy metals that may potentially cause some antioxidants to turn pro-oxidant. Also, it contains other antioxidant cofactors to support the complex antioxidant system in the body to prevent any undesirable effects. It is after all, a natural antioxidant formula…. And nature knows best!

4. This product tastes sweet and I am a diabetic patient, can I take this product?
Certainly. This product is naturally sweetened with maple that offers benefits to your health too. Maple is an excellent source of zinc and manganese (an essential trace mineral required by the body), both components of SOD (Superoxide dismutase) – a powerful antioxidant enzyme that disarms free radicals to prevent ageing. Maple used is 100% natural and the amount added per serving is very insignificant. However, all diabetic patients should keep their blood sugar levels in check.

5. Can Nn Stabilized Rice Bran be added to hot water? What about adding it while cooking?
Nn Stabilized Rice Bran contains heat-sensitive nutrients so it is not advisable to mix it with hot water or add it to cooking or baking. For maximum benefits, we suggest that you mix it with lukewarm water, sprinkle it on cereal, toast, etc. or just eat it by itself.

6. Can I take more than 12g twice daily?
It is 100% natural & safe, no chemical additives and whatsoever. You may take more than the recommended amount as desired or required.

Stabilized Rice Bran Antioxidant ORAC score

Nn Stabilized Rice Bran & ORAC

Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) measures the antioxidant levels of a substance. A high ORAC score means the substance is high in antioxidants.

Nn Stabilized Rice Bran’s ORAC value surpasses that of other antioxidant-rich fruits, including blueberries and pomegranates.

Nn Stabilized Rice Bran has the highest ORAC score when compared to 28 types of other well known antioxidant-rich food. Each 12g serving is equivalent to 2,447 ORAC score!



Beyond ORAC, Stabilized Rice Bran provides higher lipophilic (fat soluble) antioxidants when compared to 28 types of other foods.

A good antioxidant formula should provide both lipophilic (fat soluble) and hydrophilic (water soluble) antioxidants, along with other antioxidant cofactors, because the human body is a complex system that requires more than one type of antioxidant. An orchestra of antioxidant team members is needed to help one another perform (it’s all about teamwork!)

Antioxidant products – both lipophilic such as Vitamin A, E etc and hydrophilic such as Vitamin C, B etc are available in the market but it is very rare that a single product comes with a combination of both lipophilic and hydrophilic PLUS all other vital nutrients. Lipophilic antioxidants penetrate the cell membrane and protect the inside whereas hydrophilic antioxidants protect the outer cell membrane.

Stabilized Rice Bran helps protect cells from the inside out for better protection against disease-causing free radicals.

What Makes Our Rice Bran Different?

Rice bran contains a lipase enzyme that causes rancidity within hours after harvesting so traditionally it has been removed and discarded or used as animal feed.

Rice Bran is an amazing storehouse of health-enhancing nutrients and antioxidants, but until recently its nutritional power was not fully available because it became oxidized right after milling (making it rancid and unfit for human consumption) or it was treated with high heat or chemicals (which kills the nutrients). Now, with NutraCea®s patented, proprietary technology, rice bran can be stabilized without high heat or chemicals, and we can finally enjoy the true power of rice bran.

NutraCea ® from USA Arizona-based is the only manufacturer in the world that has successfully

  • Stabilized rice bran by inactivating the lipase enzymes within seconds after harvesting
  • Performed the whole stabilisation process without using chemicals or high heat treatments that degrade the nutritional profile.

What is in Stabilized Rice Bran?

If it is stabilized WITHOUT high heat or chemicals, rice bran contains:

Protein — stabilized rice bran contains easily digested, hypoallergenic essential amino acids that are necessary for building human protein. These include Tryptophan, Histidine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Isoleucine, Lysine, Valine, and Leucine.

Complex Carbohydrates — unlike simple carbohydrates which can add to blood sugar and fat storage problems, healthy complex carbohydrates like those found in stabilized rice bran have a “low glycemic index” which means that they don’t cause spikes in your blood sugar. In fact, stabilized rice bran has been found to help normalise blood sugar.

Fibre — stabilized rice bran contains soluble and insoluble fibres necessary for optimum digestive health, blood sugar regulation, lowered cholesterol, and the prevention of diabetes and heart disease.

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) — Omegas 3, 6 & 9 help to strengthen cellular membranes (so the bad stays out and the good stays inside cells). They also help with energy production (eliminating fatigue); transporting oxygen to the cells; removing waste from the cells; regulating hormones; reducing inflammation, pain and stiffness; reducing LDL “bad” cholesterol & increasing HDL “good” cholesterol, on top of improving your complexion, mood, memory & concentration!

Enzymes — including Glutathione Peroxidase, Methionine Reductase, Polyphenol Oxidase, energy enhancing, immune boosting CoQ10, Aspartate Amino Transferase Isozyme AAT-1 & AAT-2, Catalase, and Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), which is an exceptionally powerful antioxidant.

Tocotrienols & Tocopherols (Complete Vitamin E family) — Tocols as a complete group are much more powerful than regular vitamin E. They are great for your cardiovascular system, your immune system, and your complexion! Stablized rice bran contains a-Tocopherol, b-Tocopherol, g-Tocopherol, d-Tocopherol, a-Tocotrienol, ß-Tocotrienol, g-Tocotrienol, d-Tocotrienol, Desmethyl-tocotrienol, and Didesmethyl tocotrienol.

Phytosterols and Sterolins (phytosterols glucosides) — these are natural phytonutrients with healthful properties that range from helping to fight free radicals, prevent cancer, reduce blood sugar and blood lipid levels, lower cholesterol and ease menopausal symptoms. Stabilized rice bran contains ß-Sitosterol, Campesterol, Stigmasterol,?5-Avinasterol, ?7-Stigmastenol, Sterol glucoside, Acylsterol glucoside, Oligoglycosylsterol, Gramisterol,Monoglycosylsterol, Dimethylsterol, Cellotetraosylsitosterol, Branosterol, Isofucosterol, Obtusifoliol, Sitostenol,Methylsterol, 28-Homosteasteronicacids, ß-Amyrin, 28-Homotyphasterol, Citrostadienol, and 6-Deoxycastasterone,

Calcium — which helps build strong bones, teeth and muscles; promotes healthy nervous system; has a calming effect on the nervous system; helps with proper functioning of the heart, muscles, and nervous system; and plays a role in maintaining normal blood pressure, regulating blood clotting, preventing cancers of the digestive tract and decreasing mood swings, food cravings, and the pain, tenderness and bloating associated with premenstrual syndrome.

Magnesium — which is an essential element for proper functioning of the nervous, muscular and cardiovascular systems. It also helps with nerve and muscle functioning, helps relieve cramps and PMS, aids in bone formation, regulates heartbeat and helps to normalise blood pressure.

Potassium — which helps to regulate fluid balance, heart rhythms and blood pressure and helps with mental function by sending oxygen to the brain. It is required for the proper functioning of the heart, kidneys, muscles, nerves, and digestive system.

Gamma Oryzanol Complex — this amazing anti-mutagenic group includes Campesterol Trans-ferulate, Cycloartenol Trans-ferulate, Cycloartenol Cis-ferulate, Cycloeucalenol Trans-ferulate, Cycloeucalenol Cis-ferulate, Stigmasterol Trans-ferulate, 24-Methylenecycloartanol Trans-ferulate, 24-Methylenecycloartanol Cis-ferulate, ß-Sitosterol Trans-ferulate, ß-Sitosterol Cis-ferulate, ß-Sitostenol Trans-ferulate,21 ß-Sitostenol Cis-ferulate, Stigmasterol Cis-ferulate, Stigmastenol Cis-ferulate, Campesterol Cis-ferulate, Cycloartanol Trans-ferulate, Cycloartanol Cis-ferulate, Stigmastenol Trans-ferulate, 24-Methylcholesterol Trans-ferulate, and 24-Methylcholesterol Cis-ferulate. These help boost immune response, reduce inflammation, increase energy, metabolise glucose, regulate blood sugar, and more!

Polyphenols — including Ferulic acid, a-Lipoic acid, Methyl ferulate, ?-Coumaric acid, ?-Sinapic acid, Isovitexin, Proanthocyanidins. These have been shown to assist the immune system and to reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Metal Chelators — including Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorous, Potassium and Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6). Getting heavy metals helps to ensure that antioxidants don’t “turn to the dark side” and become pro-oxidised free radicals.

Carotenoids — very effective free radical scavengers including Lutein, a-Carotene, ß-Carotene, Lycopene, Zeaxanthine, and Crytocyanthine.

B-Vitamins & Vitamin-like substances — including Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic acid, Pyridoxine, Betaine, Dimethyl glycine, Inositol, Biotin, Choline, Folic acid, and Phytates. These can help prevent cancer and prohibit cholesterol buildup, support adrenal function, calm and maintain the nervous system, and assist in key metabolic processes.

Polysaccharides — including Cycloartenol-ferulic acid glycoside, Diferulic acid complex, Diferulic acid-calcium complex, Hemicelluloses, Arabinogalactan, Arabinoxylan, Xyloglucan, Proteoglycan, Glycoprotein, Arabinofuranoside. These are known to help immune function lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and increase coronary artery capacity.

Phospholipids — including Phosphatidylserine, PhosphatidylCholine, Phosphatidylethanolamine, Lysophophatidylcholine, Lysophosphatidylethanolamine. Phospholipids help support the growth and renewal of cellular membranes, forming an important barrier to filter toxins out. They also act as cellular antioxidants when free radical “bullets” try to penetrate the cell. Phospholipids are also thought to prevent depletion of the neurotransmitter choline, improving mental focus, brain function, and both mental and physical stamina.

Myriad Benefits of Stabilized Rice Bran

RICE is a food staple for more than half the world’s population but a by-product of this humble grain also has myriad benefits.



Mention rice to most people and the first thing they’ll think of is Asian food. A grain belonging to the grass family, rice is consumed by billions of people across the globe, and in many countries it is a staple.

Although rice is one of the few foods in the world that is entirely non-allergenic and gluten-free, it has little nutritional value. Ironically, however, it’s also the end result of a process that produces a by-product which is packed with benefits for both health and beauty.

After it’s harvested, rice goes through a milling process, during which the hull and various bran layers of kernel are removed. After this process, the rice is polished, giving the resulting seed a bright, white coating.

The discarded layers of rice bran may account for only around eight per cent of the harvested weight of the rice, but they contain more than two-thirds of its nutrition. It’s this stuff that’s a storehouse of super-nutrients.

Inside and out

Sue Shepherd, an accredited dietitian and author of Gluten Free Cooking (Penguin), says, “Rice bran contains many health-promoting nutrients.

They include high-quality protein, a complete profile of essential amino acids, omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, and more than 100 antioxidants.”

Health benefits include cardiovascular and digestive tract protection, blood sugar regulation, liver function support, diabetes management and cholesterol reduction.

Rice bran is also an excellent source of dietary fibre, which helps to keep bowels healthy.

“Total dietary fibre makes up 29 per cent of rice bran, of which the main type is insoluble fibre – fibre that doesn’t absorb water,” Shepherd explains.

Insoluble fibre has water-attracting properties that help to increase bulk, soften stools and shorten transit time through your intestines, while soluble fibre is processed through fermentation in the body.

“Some people experience abdominal discomfort if they consume a large amount of soluble fibre as it can be broken down to produce gas and distension in the gut,” Shepherd says.

“But rice bran fibre does not have this effect, and has been shown to improve bowel function and promote healthy bacteria in the colon.”
