Brown rice, in contrast to refined, white rice, carries the outer shell and bran. These two ingredients improve digestion mainly because they sit “lighter” in the digestive system. Probably the most critical aspect bran provides is an abundance in health proteins, vitamin B1, calcium mineral, the mineral magnesium, soluble fiber, and blood potassium. For those seeking weight loss or people struggling with diabetic issues, brown rice proves a nourishing blend considering its reduced glycemic level assisting a decrease in blood insulin spikes.
