Brown rice retains its nutritional content, flavour and aroma which is stripped out during the milling process to make white rice. Brown rice is rich in essential minerals: calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, selenium and zinc. It is packed with vitamins: B1 (thiamine), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6, vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol), folate and vitamin K. It is also a source of fiber, fatty acids and protein. Brown rice is low on the glycemic index which helps stabilize blood sugar levels. It also contains antioxidants which help prevent cell damage during energy production. Combined with the vitamins and minerals found in brown rice, the antioxidant properties accelerate brain metabolism without excessive nerve and muscle contraction. The relaxed nerves and muscles in turn enhance the quality of sleep, relieving insomnia. Brown rice is instrumental in weight control because it helps synthesize body fats and lower bad cholesterol. It is high in fiber which helps one feel full for longer and regulates bowel function. Studies have shown that the tissue surrounding each grain of brown rice combats the development of high blood pressure. The antioxidant / fiber synergy helps prevent various forms of cancer. The vitamins and minerals in brown rice boost the immune system and are particularly effective in maintaining bone health.
