Cancer Research and Black Rice

Black rice contains anthocyanins and antioxidants. Studies have shown that a black rice extract rich in anthocyanins supports the bodies resistance to cancer. This extract was shown to support the suppression of tumor growth in the human body, particularly human breast cancer. 

A study that looked at tumor growth showed that the anthocyanins in black rice extract significantly suppressed the growth of tumors. When subjects were given an anthocyanin rich extract made from black rice, it killed off cancer cells and suppressed the growth of new blood vessels in tumors. This resulted in suppressed tumor growth and the study concluded that an anthocyanin rich black rice extract supports the bodies resistance to cancer, particularly human breast cancer (1).* 

Another cause of current health issues is inflammation. Inflammation has been shown to lead to cancerous tumor progression and current research has led to anti-inflammatory therapeutic approaches to fight cancer (2). In a 2010 study, the findings demonstrated the ‚Äúvalue of black rice bran as an anti-inflammatory and antiallergic food ingredient‚ÄĚ. The study concluded that black rice bran is a ‚Äútherapeutic agent for the treatment and prevention of diseases associated with chronic inflammation.‚ÄĚ This study also went on to show that including black rice bran in a diet suppressed dermatitis on the skin (3).* Simply Perfect Powder is 100% Sprouted Black Rice Powder and can be added to any lifestyle.¬†
