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.
