The Amazing Anti- Inflammatory Properties of Black Rice

Published on Oct 21, 2010

Inflammation is the human body’s response to the presence of harmful bacteria, pathogens, viruses or substances; and it is one of the reasons that the body is able to heal itself. Occasionally, inflammation will become acute or chronic and won’t subside easily (or at all). While there are specific drugs that can be used to treat these conditions, they tend to be expensive and come with possible side effects. The best method for avoiding inflammation is prevention, but until now there weren’t many options to choose from; enter black rice.

While the full results are still being studied, recently conducted research suggests that black rice can protect against (chemically induced and possibly other types of) inflammation. The full breadth of uses and possible applications for Black Rice are still being studied as we speak. Black Rice is proving to be one of the most amazing and beneficial ‘super foods’ available.

This research may very well lead to the possible development of new drugs and / or treatment therapies for a wide range of ailments. In fact, there are more than a few research teams all over the world that are studying the potential medicinal uses of black rice, most of this research will most likely lead to the development of new and safer drugs to treat a wide range of conditions.

Here is an excerpt from a recently published report on the subject:

Feeding mice a standard diet with added 10% black rice bran also significantly suppressed DNFB-induced allergic contact dermatitis on the skin of the mice. By contrast, a non-pigmented brown rice bran extract did not inhibit the TPA-induced edema and failed to significantly suppress production of pro-inflammatory biomarkers (mediators). These in vivo findings further demonstrate the potential value of black rice bran as an anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic food ingredient and possibly also as a therapeutic agent for the treatment and prevention of diseases associated with chronic inflammation.”

for over three hours i have been trying to cook this horrible black rice. i used 2 cups of black rice and 4 cups of water in my rice cooker, when it finally finished it was like chewing on gravel!! so i added more water and put the rice cooker back on... a total of 5 times now and still this rubbish is not cooked! had i cooked white or brown rice i could have eaten hours ago, but with this silly rubbish black rice i will be up all night long waiting for it to cook right. this is just absurd, don't waste your time with black rice, certainly not if you are hungry and don't want to throw away hours of your life waiting for this silly gimmick of a rice to properly cook.

rice that takes longer to cook than an entire turkey?? very disappointing, never again!

i\'ve just finished eating this wonderful piece of treasure. it was the best rice i\'ve ever eaten. i prepared it according to the instructions on the packet - i put 1 big glass of the rice and three glasses of water into a pot and cooked for cca 45-55 minutes, it was very soft and sticky and soooo delicious. it tastes great even without salt and oil. i ate it with salmon grilled on butter and tomato salad. i highly recommend you this meal, it\'s really outstanding.

tried black rice for the first time this week. a coworker prepared some for me. i bragged to her how fantastic it was. the next day she brought me a bag. cooked some today and we enjoyed it with some good ol' fashion beef stew- lots of veggies. tasted great! looking forward to this being a regular part of our meals.
