Jasmine brown rice has an excellent source of manganese, and a good source of selenium, iron, phosphorus, copper, magnesium, and niacin (Vitamin B3), thiamine (Vitamin B1), riboflavin (Vitamin B2), and Vitamin B6. The complete milling and polishing that converts brown rice into white rice destroys up to 67% of the vitamin B3, 80% of the vitamin B1, 90% of the vitamin B6, half of the manganese, half of the phosphorus, 60% of the iron, and all of the dietary fiber and essential fatty acids.
Due to its dietary fiber, Vitamin B and Mineral contents, consuming organic brown rice daily helps to control weight, lower cholesterol, improve metabolism and immunity.
Manganese helps produce energy from protein and carbohydrates and is involved in the synthesis of fatty acids, which are important for a healthy nervous system, and in the production of cholesterol, which is used by the body to produce sex hormones. Manganese is also a critical component of a very important antioxidant enzyme called superoxide dismutase. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is found inside the body’s mitochondria (the oxygen-based energy factories inside most of our cells) where it provides protection against damage from the free radicals produced during energy production.
