What is Natural-Ferulic acid?
Ferulic Acid, extracted from Rice Bran Oil, is one of the most powerful natural anti-oxidants. Many plants contain Ferulic acid, which plays a key role in the plants self-preservation mechanism, re-enforcing it's cellular wall strength and protecting it from microbial damage as well as sun damage.
Health Benefits of Natural Ferulic acid
In vivo testing has shown Ferulic Acid to be highly effective as a topical anti-oxidant. Comparable to Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) Ferulic Acid may help to prevent the propagation of the free radical chain. Ferulic Acid has been demonstrated to be an anti-oxidant extender, for many of the other anti-oxidants. In particular the combination of Vitamins C, and E, were shown to double their photo protective capacity on the skin. It is well known that Vitamin C is very problematic in skin care due to it's highly oxidative state.
A 2004 Italian study concluded that ferulic acid is a more powerful antioxidant than alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), beta-carotene, and ascorbic acid (vitamic C). Meanwhile, Duke University researchers blended it with vitamin C and E and proclaimed it a "potent ubiquitous plant anti-oxidant". In fact, it was discovered to act synergistically with other antioxidants and, in this case, rendered the vitamins C and E more powerful. The Duke Study found it particularly good for preventing sun damage, and studies elsewhere have demonstrated that exposure to ultraviolet light actually increases the antioxidant power of Ferulic acid.
