Managing Blood Sugar

Simply Perfect Powder supports the management of blood sugar levels. Results from scientific studies show that foods like black rice, which are rich in anthocyanins, support lower blood sugar levels (1). In a 2016 study, black rice extract led to an increase in antioxidant capacity and antioxidant enzyme levels. The study concluded that black rice has anti-diabetic properties and that it supports the prevention of and management of diabetes and blood sugar regulation (2).* 

In addition, the soft milling process of our black rice leaves the bran intact, which retains the fiber content of black rice. Foods that are rich in fiber take longer to digest, which supports the prevention of insulin spikes. (3,4) An added benefit of the fiber in Simply Perfect Powder is satiation. Our Sprouted Black Rice Powder prolongs feeling full and supports a reduced calorie diet.*

Sprouted Black Rice Powder is low on the glycemic index, which supports the management of blood sugar, but also supports weight management. Doctors report that patients come in counting calories and feel frustrated with the lack of results. That's because keeping track of blood sugar levels is much more important. Dr. Muenzer wrote in the Tufts Medical Journal that "I found an easy, healthy way to lose weight fast and improve my overall health. I simply started to pay attention to the glycemic index of my food (5)." Most people don't understand this, but it is simple science. The body retains fat when blood sugar levels are spiked. When you eat low glycemic foods like Sprouted Black Rice Powder, it supports lower blood sugar levels and weight management.
