Eastern Health Description

The main thing that separates Black Rice from all the other varieties of rice is its amazingly strong Antioxidant properties; which come from its pigment. This is the same type of pigment found in other types of antioxidant rich foods such as the many varieties of berries. Antioxidants are quickly becoming a staple for scientific food research;anthocyanins are in the flavonoid pigments of Black Rice and are the source of antioxidants. They have been linked to prevention and even treatment of a wide range of medical conditions. In addition to its almost legendary antioxidant properties, Black Rice is also a well known anti-inflammatory food; which helps cut down on general infections and illnesses. In recent studies antioxidants have been found to seriously slow down the agingprocess, so Black Rice is really worth eating if just for those benefits alone; but it also offers an entire host of other great benefits in addition to that as well.
