Title of the Study: Effects of gamma oryzanol supplementation on anthropometric measurements & muscular strength in healthy males following chronic resistance training / Saghar Eslami , Norhaizan Mohd Esa, Seyed Mohammad Marandi, Gholamali Ghasemi, Sepehr Eslami / The Indian journal of medical research

The findings of this study indicated that 600mg/day Gamma Oryzanol supplementation during 9-week resistance training increased muscular strength in young healthy males.

Title of the Study: Effects of β-Hydroxy-β-Methylbutyrate and γ-Oryzanol on Blood Biochemical Markers in Exercising Thoroughbred Race Horses / Piotr Ostaszewski, Agnieszka Kowalska Ewa Szarska, Piotr Szpotański, Anna Cywinska, Bożena Bałasińska, Tomasz Sadkowski /Journal of Equine Veterinary Science /

This study showed that supplementation with Gamma-Oryzanol for 16 weeks before the racing session, resulted in decreased creatine kinase and blood lactate (LA) after the exercise session. These findings support the hypothesis that Gamma Oryzanol supplementation helps to prevent exercise-induced muscle damage.
