In the case of menopausal women with early menopause symptoms include insomnia, muscle pain, depression, hot flashes and other symptoms appear. So this study is to improve these symptoms and to identify glucose metabolism and antioxidant metabolism of the high functional rice (pigmented rice) in â�?�?Keunnunjamiâ�?. The experiment used rice bran in 70% ethanol extract. After the Sprague-Dawley female rats were randomly assigned in to groups like SHAM (not ovariectomized; Sham-Control), OVX-AIN76 (ovariectomized; feed is AIN76), OVX-KN (ovariectomized; feed is Keunnunjamir rice bran extract). First result include glucose metabolism: G6pase, PEPCK of glucose metabolism experimental result of kidney tissue ovariectomized Keunnunjami rice bran extract diet group showed a significantly lower value. Second result is antioxidation metabolism: The antioxidation experiment of liver tissue, GPx, CAT, GR, PON showed a high value Keunnunjami rice bran extract diet group compared with AIN76 expression group in the ovariectomized group. A result of the antioxidation experiments of kidney tissue, CAT, GR, the case of PON, among ovariectomized formula group, the AIN76 diet group and pigmented rice bran extract diet group showed a significant difference, of pigmented rice bran extract diet group case of GR, Keunnunjami rice bran extract expression in the middle, the military showed a significantly higher value. This has a positive effect on glucose metabolism, antioxidant compared these results with those Keunnunjami rice bran extract on a regular diet group.
