Black Rice And Benefits

Rich Antioxidants
The deep black or the purple hue of the black rice is a marker of its high antioxidant properties. In fact the amount of anthocyanin contained in black rice is higher than any other grain, including brown rice, red rice, red quinoa, or other coloured whole grain varieties.Anthocyanin can help prevent cardiovascular disease, restricting free radical movements which can cause variety of diseases like diabetes and even cancer. It can also help improve brain function and reduce inflammation. Black rice also contains important antioxidant-Vitamin E, which is useful in maintaining eye, skin, and immune health.

Natural Detoxifier

The phytonutrients present in black rice help cleanse the body of disease causing toxins (caused by free radicals). Black rice helps the liver (one of the most significant detoxifiers of the body) eliminate unwanted substances through its antioxidant activity.

Preventing Risk of Obesity
The black rice has about 3 grams of fiber per half cup serving. This rich fibre content helps regulate the bowel movements, prevent constipation, diarrhoea and bloating. Fibre also gives your body a satiated feeling after consumption which prevents you from binging into other fatty food, thus aiding weight loss.

Preventing Risk of Diabetes

To ward off the risk of diabetes and obesity, it is advised to consume whole grains instead of just refined carbohydrates. The entire bran of the grain is where the all the fiber is stored in the black rice. The fibre is able to help glucose (sugar) from the grain to be absorbed by the body over a longer duration of time, (Since fibre take the longest to digest), thereby maintaining consistent sugar levels.

Preventing Risk of Obesity
For people battling obesity, black rice is the best variant of rice to consume. Full of fibre, black rice not only gives you the feeling of being full, thus preventing overeating; studies show that the rice variant can also help prevent insulin resistance, which is often linked to the risk of developing diabetes and obesity.

Better Heart Health
Eating black rice will have a positive impact on your healthy cholesterol levels too. The anthocyanin phytochemical found in black rice, reduces the Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol also known as the bad cholesterol, which is a common contributor to cardiovascular diseases. It also brings down the total Cholesterol levels. The book 'Healing Foods' by DK Publishing, notes, black rice has been proven to actively reduce atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) as well.
