Rice Policosanols are a family of aliphatic (non-ring) alcohols that have diverse beneficial effects. The original Japanese research was based on rice wax policosanols. The main policosanols are Octacosanol, Triacontanol, Dotriacontanol, Tetracosanol, Hexacosanol, Tetratriacontanol, Hexatriacontanol and Docosanol. Rice is the richest source of Docosanol. Animal experiments have shown policosanols improve cholesterol metabolism and reduce circulating triglycerides*. Octacosanol has been studied for its effects on improving physical performance and reducing fatigue. Docosanol protects the prostate gland and is considered a primary active component of the herb Pygeum africanum, which is used to maintain prostate health.
