Black Rice Can Slow Down Aging

2225

Scientists from Louisiana State University, USA, have found that one spoonful of black rice bran contains more anthocyanin antioxidants, fiber and vitamin E than a spoonful of blackberries or blueberries, which are regarded as strong natural antioxidants. However, the rice contains less sugar.

Antioxidants can prevent DNA damage, absorb harmful molecules in the body, and consequently slow down the aging of the human body.

Black rice is also called “forbidden rice”, because in ancient times, only the Chinese rich had the right to eat it, while this variety of rice was forbidden for common people.

The researchers believe producers need to add black rice bran that contains many useful substances (or extract from its bran) in products such as dry breakfast cereals, beverages, pies, and cookies.
