ABSTRACT

Excessive free radicals trigger oxidative stress which implicates the pathogenesis of various physiological disorders. Maintenance of oxidative balance in the brain is tightly regulated by antioxidants. An overall antioxidant status can be evaluated by clinical parameters like TIBC, transferrin, iron, uric acid and albumin in blood serum. Based on different level of TPC, FRAC and TAC, a total number of four HYV rice like BR5, BR16, BRRI dhan28 and BRRI dhan29 were selected to investigate the effect of dietary administration of these rice varieties in improving the antioxidant status in rat model. Different level of antioxidant enriched HYV rice varieties like BR5, BR16, BRRI dhan28 and BRRI dhan29 were systematically fed to Long Evan rats for four weeks under clinical experiment and data revealed that antioxidant status measuring parameters like serum TIBC, transferrin, uric acid and albumin were persisted the most elevated level in BR5 rice treatment among other rice varieties which positively correlate healthy antioxidant status in rat blood serum. Thus we concluded that antioxidant enrich rice in dietary pattern improve the antioxidant status in rat.
