KNOW THE GRAIN
# Brown rice is hypoallergenic
It has low allergenic properties because it is gluten and lactose free. For those who are gluten or lactose sensitive, including brown rice in their diet could help to fill the nutrient gap and resulting deficiencies. One way of doing this is to make brown rice milk and have it instead of regular milk.
# Improves heart health
The plant lignans that brown rice contains in its cell walls are protective against heart disease. It is also rich in magnesium which helps maintain regular heart rhythm as well as selenium, a powerful antioxidant that strengthens the heart.
# Boosts digestion
It is a rich source of manganese and helps in the formation of digestive enzymes. Also, its rich fibre content helps in the formation of bulk which in turn regulates bowel function and makes digestion easier.
# Helps in diabetes and weight management
Brown rice is rich in physics acid and along with fibre, polyphenols and antioxidants, it contains complex carbohydrate which makes way for sustained release of sugar thereby regulating blood sugar and insulin levels, preventing cravings.
