- Ferulic acid Ferulic acid is a type of poliphenol extracted from rice bran. Its effects such as ultra-violet ray absorption, antioxidant function and others have been officially acknowledged. This has attracted the attention of many experts in such fields as cosmetics and medicine. Ferulic acid is an organic compound found in the cell wall components in sprouted brown rice, black rice and other plants, and is capable of suppressing the beta-amyloids which increase with age in the brain cells and are believed responsible for such conditions as dementia.
- Plasmalogen is present in all tissues of mammals, and in humans it accounts for about 18 percent of all phospholipids. Plasmalogen is especially abundant in brain neurons, the heart, lymphocytes and macrophages. Plasmalogen is present in large amounts in the brain and in recent years it was discovered that this substance participates in controlling the release of many substances, such as neurotransmitters responsible for basic brain functionality.
