Brown rice is the whole grain rice, only with the hull removed. It is healthier than other types of rice, because it does not go through the milling and polishing process where a lot of the nutrients are lost.
Brown rice is extremely high in fiber and it is among the top foods to prevent colon cancer. One cup contains 3.5 grams of fiber, about 14% of the daily recommended intake. This helps reduce constipation and maintain bowel health, leading to a healthy digestive system.
Manganese is a mineral found in a lot of whole grains, including brown rice. One cup contains 88% of our daily recommended intake. Manganese helps produce energy from protein and carbohydrates, and it is involved with the synthesis of fatty acids, which is crucial for a healthy nervous system. It is also part of an enzyme called superoxide dismutase, a powerful antioxidant protecting from free radicals.
With its powerful antioxidants it has been said that brown rice reduces hypertension, levels of cholesterol, stress, and skin disorders. Its nutritious components also protect from cancer, obesity, diabetes, as well as provide bone structure and strengthen the immune system.
