PRODUCT DETAILS

Sprouted Black rice known as "Emperor's rice" is a rare variety of rice revered for its health benefits. Black rice was once the exclusive preserve of Chinese royalty, forbidden to be eaten by the masses.

Black rice is a superfood and is nutritionally well balanced; bran- complete whole-grain, gluten free, cholesterol free, low in fat, low glycemic, low sugar and salts yet high in fiber, amino acids, anthocyanin antioxidants, vitamins B and E, niacin, thiamine, magnesium, iron and phosphorous. 

Sprouting: Before mass commercialized production using combines and silos, grains were left in the fields to germinate before being harvested. Natural sprouting was cast aside for commercial mass processing and nutrition was cast aside as well. By sprouting our Black rice we create an easily digestible food in its culturally correct form eaten as nature intended.

Antioxidants are concentrated in the deep purple pigments in the kernel. Sprouted Black Rice powder helps with symptoms of hypertension and maintains healthy sugar levels.

Black rice has a super-satiation effect and is a nutritionally well balanced functional superfood that holds the key to efficient and healthy weight management.

Health Benefits of Sprouted Black Rice Capsules:

Antioxidants: Remarkable dietary balance of black rice makes it an antioxidant rich whole superfood. A distinguishing characteristic of Black Rice is the strong anthocyanin antioxidants contained in the deep-purple flavonoid pigments of its kernel. The strong antioxidant properties of Black Rice makes it effective to lessen inflammation; which helps in general infections and illnesses. Many health reports point out that anthocyanins protect against damaging free radicals that can give rise to a wide spectrum of serious health problems. Dr. Zhimin Xu, associate professor at the Department of Food Sciences of Louisiana State University reports that "Just a spoonful of black rice bran contains more health promoting anthocyanin antioxidants in a spoonful of blueberries with less sugar, more fiber and vitamin E antioxidants.”

These findings were announced at 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) Boston, Mass.

Cornell University researchers found that antioxidant content was approximately six times higher in black rice than in common brown/white rice. The black rice bran had higher content of phenolics, flavonoids and anthocyanins. Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, July 14, 2010; 58(13): 7580-7.

Has been known to control hypertension: In an article published in the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition” investigating the consumption of major flavonoid groups (flavonoids, flavones, flavonones, flavan-3-ols, proanthocyanidins, and anthocyanins) determined that anthocyanins were the group most significantly associated and has the ability to control hypertension. 

Cassidy; Habitual intake of flavonoid subclasses and incident hypertension in adults; American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2011) 93:338-347.

Satiation / Weight Management: Satiation is a complex neurobiological phenomenon mediated by hormones and enzymatic reactions that send signals to the brain associated with the recognition of the feeling of fullness (satiety). In the case of black rice there is a super-satiation effect that can greatly assist all those for whom weight management is a concern. In the dark purple flavonoid pigments in rice husk (pericarp) there are seven distinct anthocyanin species many of which are localized. Due to different localization patterns these are not released and digested in the same place and at the same time in your digestive tract. The effects are felt over time. They are in a sense “time released.” The recognition process and digestion of the multiple species of anthocyanins slows the pace at which food moves through the digestive tract. In addition, the anthocyanins carried in the fiber slows down the oxidation of the food causing it to move slower and take longer to be processed. 

Different Localization Patterns of Anthocyanin Species in the Pericarp of Black Rice Revealed by Imaging Mass Spectrometry” Yukihiro Yoshimura, Nobuhiro Zaima, Tatsuya Moriyama and Yukio Kawamyra published online 2012 February 17, doi: 10,1371/journal.pone.0031285

Black rice has antioxidants woven through a carrier that is nutritionally well balanced, high in fiber (soft milled) and very low in sugar. Other foods with high levels of antioxidants (blueberries for one example) may also be high in sugar. Sugar oxidizes quickly and may neutralize any satiation benefit.

Cyanidin-3-Glucoside - C3G: This is a rare antioxidant found in abundance in the dark flavonoid pigments of black rice that affects the gene expression of fat metabolism. It turns off the gene expression for fat storage and turns on the gene expression for fat metabolism. You burn fat instead of storing fat.

This makes black rice an effective and safe vehicle for weight loss. “Microarray profiling of gene expression in human adipocytes in response to anthocyanins” Takanori Tsuda, Yuki Ueno, Toshikazu Yoshikawa, Hitoshi Kojo, Toshihiko Osawa Biochemical Pharmacology 71 (2006) 1184- 1197

Scientific animal studies (with dosage adjusted to the human equivalent of 250 mg C3G) indicate that in thirty days, C3G reversed the weight gain of a high fat diet to the level of a normal diet. Weight gain was significantly lower in the high fat diet plus anthocyanins as compared to the high fat diet only.

Kwon; Anti-Obesity and Hypolipidemic Effects of Black Soybean Anthocyanins; Journal of Medicinal Food (2007) 10:552-556.

C3G helps to override the body’s dysfunctional inflammatory nutrient uptake signals that cause fat cells to store high levels of glucose which results in out-of-control appetite and obesity. Decreased levels of leptin (fat cell signaling protein secretions) and increased levels of AMPK (an enzyme that helps to regulate your weight) triggers the use of stored energy from fat. 

Reduces signs of inflammation: Researchers at Ajou University in Suwon, S. Korea tested brown rice and black rice for their effectiveness in protecting against skin inflammations and found that the black rice bran did suppress dermatitis, but the brown rice bran did not. This scientific study suggests that black rice may be a “useful therapeutic agent for reducing inflammation.

"Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Aug. 23, 2010: 58(13):7580-5 in a study published in the “American Chemical Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.”

Researchers found that mice fed with a diet supplemented with ten percent black rice bran significantly reduced inflammation and also found that black rice bran inhibits the release of histamine, a chemical that triggers inflammation. Black rice consumption can alleviate allergic dermatitis symptoms such as swelling, allergy and asthma sufferers may find relief by adding black rice to their diet.

“Global Challenges/Chemistry Solutions.”

Known to maintain healthy glucose levels: Harvard School of Public Health scientists estimated that replacing about two servings a week of white rice with the same amount of black rice would lower sugar levels and by 16%. 

"Archives of Internal Medicine, June 14, 2010: 170 (11); 96-99 - Insulin resistance has been strongly associated with non alcoholic fatty liver disease. Numerous studies have suggested that natural anthocyanins are potent antioxidants associated with maintaining a healthy glucose level. “We hypothesize that black rice containing C3G may reduce the risk of hepatic fat accumulation and improve insulin resistance.” 

"Black rice (Oryza sativa L.) extract attenuates hepatic steatosis in C57BL/6J mice fed a high-fat diet via fatty acid oxidation Hwan-Hee Jang, Mi-Young Park, et. al. “Nutrition & Metabolism” 2.89

Scientific studies using rats as subjects with dosage adjusted to human equivalency of 120mg C3G demonstrated that in eight weeks C3G inhibited lipid peroxidation (cell membrane damage leading to cell death), improved activity of superoxide dismutase (antioxidant defense mechanism of the body) and demonstrated a hypoglycaemic effect (lowering of blood sugar levels). 

Nasri; Vascular mechanisms of cyanidin-3-glucoside response in streptozotocin-diabetic rats; Pathophysiology (2011) 18:273-278

A clinical evaluation published in “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition” investigating the effects of consumption of major flavonoid groups concluded that anthocyanins were the only group significantly known to maintain sugar level. 

American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2012) 95:925-933.
