Octacosanol is a long-chain aliphatic alcohol, found abundantly in rice bran oil and in many other plants, presents a variety of important biological activities, including antioxidant and ergogenic properties and anti-Parkinsonism. Octacosanol is the main component of policosanol.
Animal studies show that octacosanol possesses anti-nociceptive (i.e.. counters pain nerve stimulus) and anti-inflammatory activities, which could be of relevance for the control of pain and inflammatory processes, particularly related to the nervous system.
In other animal studies, octacosanol reduced disrupted hepatic reactive oxygen species metabolism associated with acute liver injury.
