The secret ingredients behind germinated rice
The researchers then demonstrated that the ASGs had the ability to activate enzymes related to diabetes, and this activation required the acyl
chemical group; regular steryl glucosides (SGs) had no effect. And, although ASGs are found in many plants, soybean derived ASGs had no effect on the ...

Gladstone scientists reveal key enzyme in fat absorption
...stone Institutes of Cardiovascular Disease (GICD) have found that a key enzyme involved in absorbing fat may also be a key to reducing it. The enzyme, acyl
