Vital Star (Rice Bran & Germ Oil) Dietary Supplement
Rice Bran & Germ Oil is extracted from the brown layer of unpolished brown rice. The process of rice bran and germ oil extraction is important in producing an end product with a high nutritional content. The extraction processes used include GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice), HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) and ISO 9001:2000
In order to maintain the nutritional content of rice bran & germ oil, the rice bran has to freshly milled within no more than 24 hours of harvesting. The Electro Mechanical Sample Taker for sampling rice bran and the NIRS (Near-infrared System) for evaluating the quality of raw materials are used in this process and are the most advanced technologies in the world for these processes After extracting the crude rice bran& germ oil is rich in a wide array natural nutrition substances, namely, Oleic Acid, Linoleic Acid and Gamma Oryzanol.
Oleic Acid is a monounsaturated fatty acid of omaga-9 series found naturally in many plant sources and in animal products. It is non-essential fatty acid which means that the body can produce it. Oleic Acid can lower total cholesterol by raising levels of high-density lipoproteins (HDLs) while lowering low-density cholesterol (LDLs)
Linoleic Acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid of the omaga-6 series. It is an essential fatty acid, which means that our body cannot produce it. Because the body cannot produce essential omaga-6 fatty acid, it must be obtained through diet. Linoleic Acid produces prostaglandins which are substances that are found in every cell and needed for healthy maintenance of our body.
Gamma Oryzanol is a natural high- potency antioxidant.Gamma Oryzanol has been widely recognized in many studies and has been shown to have several physiological effects. Among these effects are its ability to decrease cholesterol absorption and lower the cholesterol levels in the blood (Hypocholesterolemic effect) Gamma Oryzanol may also lower the risk of coronary heart disease by decreasing early atherosclerosis and inhibiting platelet aggregation. Gamma Oryzanol has also been used to improve nerve imbalances and disorders associated with menopause. As can be seen in the references below, the many beneficial effects of Gamma Oryzanol found in rice bran and germ oil have been documented in numerous studies and reports.

I get a lot of questions about whether the raw food diet is healthy. There is no simple answer to that. A raw food diet can be incredibly healthy-in fact probably the healthiest diet on the planet.
However, do it wrong and rush into it and it can be unhealthy. You have to know how to transition into it properly. The same thing goes for eating cooked food again once you have transitioned properly to raw food. If you suddenly start eating even a small amount of cooked food again, it can have a huge impact on your body.
I teach a simple two-step process to transitioning to a raw food diet. You can learn all about my realistic, real world approach to the raw food diet by picking up my free ebook to the right.
You’ll get the book and frequent tips on following the raw food diet and a healthy lifestyle.
Global Biohealth Solutions has patient facilitating relationships with hospitals that provide patients with stem cell therapy for diseases and conditions for which all other traditional medicinal and surgical interventions have proved ineffective.
One of the programs for which we are the primary patient facilitator for is the Apollo Bramwell Stem Cell Therapy Program. The Apollo Bramwell Hospital is the first hospital in the Apollo Hospitals Group and in the entire Indian Ocean Region to treat cardiovascular, vascular, orthopedic and sports injury conditions and diseases with bone marrow derived autologous (the patients own) stem cells. For patients looking for autologous stem cell therapy, please visit our Apollo Bramwell Stem Cell Therapy Program website.
Global Biohealth Solutions also facilitates patient education, travel and logistics with hospital and research groups in India where allogenic umbilical cord, bone marrow and adipose stem cell treatments are available for cerebral palsy, diabetes type 1 and 2, inter-vertebrate disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury and Parkinson’s disease. These treatments have undergone pre-clinical safety evaluations and are approved by the Institutional Committee for Stem Cell Research and Therapy (ICSCRT) as well as the treating hospitals Institutional Ethics Committee. Stem cell therapy is also available for certain cosmetic procedures such as anti-aging, breast augmentation, and facial augmentation.
To receive stem cell therapy now, please fill in our Patient Application Form. For a full list of treatable conditions please visit Treatable Conditions.
