Hemicellulose (dietary fiber): Rice-Bran In The Spotlight
Rice-Bran and Shiitake Mushroom Fungus Create Degenerated Arabinoxylan Compound (Bio-Bran), the Immune Strengthening Product
Arabinoxylan is an ingredient that occurs in significant quantities in true grasses such as rice shoots, wheat and corn. It is the principal ingredient of hemicellulose, which creates cell walls. Hemicellulose is a type of dietary fiber. Recent tudies have identified its role in digestion and the absorption of nutrients, its contribution to the healthy excretion of body wastes, and its usefulness in increasing the growth of intestinal bacteria.
Among the various dietary fibers, 1 kilogram of rice-bran contains a rich 30 to 50 grams of hemicellulose B, which is regarded as a valuable material for strengthening the immune system.
The rice-bran hemicellulose B and shiitake fungi (DAIWA-A95, bred for stronger enzymation by glycosidases) are cultured in fluid. Degenerated arabinoxylan is produced by using carbohydrase complex, which is a partially refined culture filtrate. The degenerated arabinoxylan produced in this way has an extremely low number of molecules. Studies are beginning to demonstrate that these molecules activate the NK (natural killer) cell which is said to increase an individual's immune power through oral administration, thereby controlling the growth of cancerous cells. Usefulness to AIDS (HIV) patients is also starting to be recognized through the administration of test doses.
