Studies Conducted On

Effects of Gamma-Oryzanol on the disease of Hypothyroidism

Year of Study: 1980

Title of the Study: " Effect of gamma-oryzanol on serum TSH concentrations in primary hypothyroidism / Shimomura Y, Kobayashi I, Maruto S, Ohshima K, Mori M, Kamio N, Fukuda H / Endocrinologia Japonica"

The results of this study suggest that gamma-oryzanol helps in inhibiting high Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) levels in primary hypothyroidism patients by its direct action at the hypothalamus (region in brain) rather than on (pituitary) gland secreting TSH.
