Antioxidants & Anthocyanins

Black rice is a food that is high in antioxidants. In fact, it has some of the highest levels of antioxidants and anthocyanins of any grain and any food. The key is the outer layer of the rice that contains the bran (1). The reason black rice has a black or purple color is due to the high level of antioxidants in that outer layer. As we know, foods that are dark in color, like blueberries, have high antioxidant levels (2).

Simply Perfect Powder's Sprouted Black Rice Powder is made from soft milled rice. This means the bran is intact when it is sprouted and freeze dried, which retains the antioxidants, anthocyanins and the nutrients that black rice contains. This makes Simply Perfect Powder superior to the rice you find in stores, because the typical cargo rice that you can find has the bran removed (3). 

Foods that are high in antioxidants and anthocyanins, like black rice, have also been shown to limit oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can be detrimental to the human body and has been linked to chronic conditions such as heart disease, certain types of cancer, autoimmune disorders and Alzheimers (4).*
