The natural healing power and goodness of black rice has been very well noted in modern times. Loaded with antioxidants, Vitamin E, fibre, and valuable anti-inflammatory properties, this special rice is truly remarkable in its abilities. What’s really incredible about Black Rice is the fact that it contains even more antioxidants (per serving) than blueberries; which are famous for their anti-ageing properties. 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. Black Rice has been eaten in regions of Asia for thousands of years; in fact for centuries it was reserved for only Chinese royalty. Today this type of rice is picking up in popularity and popping up in more health food stores across the US, Australia, and Europe, as people discover the numerous health benefits that whole grain black rice has to offer. In ancient times, Chinese Emperors reserved this wonderfully nutty rice for their own consumption because it was thought that it would extend their lives. Black Rice does provide many health benefits that we are just finding out about now; including prevention and treatment of very serious ailments. Avoiding diseases and conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, and others is surely a great way to extend the length and quality of your life. In China, black rice has been known for being good for the kidneys, stomach and liver since ancient times. In addition to its healing and nutritious qualities, it would seem that Black Rice was also considered to be somewhat of an aphrodisiac at one time. It is highly likely that the Emperors down throughout the ages probably shared their Black Rice stock with their consorts or concubines. Read more
