This study was to confirm the effect of supplementation of superjami bran extract on lipid and antioxidant metabolism. Twenty-five subjects were recruited, and divided into Superjami group (n=12), and Placebo group (n=13) random assignment. Among the groups, the Superjami group took a Superjami bran extract (2 g/2 capsule/day), and the Placebo group took dextrin (2 g/2 capsule/day), for 12 weeks. As a result of the experiment, concentrations of TG, TC, and HDL-C in the blood, were significantly lower than those in the control group, and HDL-C was significantly higher. AI and HTR also showed positive values. Leptin did not differ significantly, but as a result of adipectin, the Superjami group displayed a higher value, compared to the Placebo group, and LAR also had significantly lower value. Antioxidant results showed that GPx, CAT, and RGLU, were significantly higher before as well as after intakes of the Superjami group, and significantly higher levels of the Superjami group, compared to the Placebo group. AOPP showed significantly lower values for the Superjami group, compared to the Placebo group. So, based on this study, ingestion of Superjami bran extract is effective in improving blood lipid concentrations as well as inflammatory substances, and has positive effects relative to increasing antioxidant activity.
