Refdanita Refdanita, Evy Damayanthi, Cesilia Meti Dwiriani, Cece Sumantri, Adi Teruna Effendi


The objective of this study was to analyze the effect of intervention with rice bran oil-emulsion beverage on serum triglycerides, HDL-c, and blood pressure in men with metabolic syndrome aged 35-60 years. This study used a double-blind randomized controlled trial design. The subjects were assigned into two groups, i.e. 19 people in the intervention group who were given rice bran oil-emulsion beverage equivalent to 28.80 mg oryzanol/glass, two glass a day for four weeks; and 17 people in the control group who were given placebo beverage in the same quantity. The results showed that trend increase in serum HDL-c and decrease blood pressure of the intervention group after intervention, although they were not significantly different from the control group (p>0.05). Intervention using rice bran oil-emulsion had the potential of preventing the development of metabolic syndrome.
