I am not a scientist by any means, but for those those of you who like to know the why of things, here is a summary on the Science behind this amazing vegan food product:
Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is what the micronized purple rice helps your body to produce in great quantity, without straining digestion and conversion processes to provide it, because it sidesteps these digestive and glycation mechanisms and goes directly into the cells as monosaccharide. Each unit of energy is fully realized and utilized, without any loss. I have yet to hear of any other food on earth that does this.
The Siam Valley of Thailand has for ages been acknowledged for the production of superior strains of rice. The richness of its organic alkaline soils has created the utmost of all strains of rice… a specific strain of anthocyanin-rich purple rice. This purple rice and the essence, Micronized Purple Rice, derived through an advanced method of milling and washing has recently made waves within health and wellness communities all around the world.
This cultivated and highly specific strain of unpolluted vegan rice, defined as a functional food, may resolve the many unanswered questions concerning metabolic x syndrome that plague the medical community and their inability to control the associated symptoms of X. These include:
Metabolic syndrome is a group of five risk factors that can increase your chance of developing heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. The five risk factors include:
- Increased blood pressure (greater than 130/85
- High Blood Sugar, or Diabetes Type II, (insulin resistance)
- Excess fat around waistline
- High triglyceride levels
- Low levels of good cholesterol, or HDL
A new definition was adopted in 2011 and debated at the 9th International Conference on Functional Foods and Chronic Diseases: Science and Practice at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. They concluded, “Functional food is a natural food that contains known biologically-active compounds which when is defined in quantitative and qualitative amounts provides a clinically proven and documented health benefit, and thus, an important source in the prevention, management and treatment of chronic diseases of the modern age.”
The biologically-active compounds that exist within the heart of this heirloom strain of purple rice include specific polysaccharides, amino acid patterns, organic minerals, natural vitamin B-complex, and many essential antioxidants. Both the husk and the endoderm of each grain of rice are retained after 60 pounds of rice is milled into 1 pound of micronized powder. The remaining product known as Micronized Purple Rice has been embraced as a super-food, with those who consume it reporting positive results — everything from more energy to reduction of chronic inflammation.
How does Micronized Purple Rice help us gracefully manage our aging process?
The many bio-ready compounds that Micronized Purple Rice offers help the cells of your body to perform at their highest functional potential. This simply means that the work that each cell of your body performs is enhanced by the active production of energy inside the mitochondria. The mitochondria of each cell can only be properly supported in its goal to create cellular energy when the specific nutrient for energy production is provided. The essence of this specific strain of purple rice contains this exacting nutrient (alpha glycopeptides). Healthy cell renewal and repair are the hallmarks of efficient energy production within the cell.
If the cell is diseased, dysfunctional, or damaged by free radicals, then its offspring will not be as healthy. However, because alpha (meaning small enough to penetrate the membranes of cells) glycopeptides provided by Micronized Purple Rice support the parent cell with energy and antioxidants, they also support the quality of the offspring. Dr. Jack Tips, in his book, ‘The Healing Power Within’ says “that when your body is reproducing healthy cells, it’s called anti-aging in our modern confrontational vernacular.” So when we say “anti-aging”, we mean that our cells are functioning more efficiently, like those of a younger person. Aging is part of the life cycle, but if you take good care of your body with rest, nutrients, and activity, it does not have to be a painful process.
To manage the aging process, you want the highest quality functional food available in the world for the mitochondria of your cells to produce energy. This strain of micronized purple rice and what it can provide as a pure food nutrient for the cells of our body performs an almost miraculous-seeming and still undervalued benefit. The prevention or healing of the metabolic x syndrome and the reversal or slowing of the deterioration of old age can lead to a re-energized, healthier life. To prevent and/or heal metabolic x syndrome, you want the best nutrition you can get, delivered cleanly and efficiently to your cells. While many foods and “superfoods” are rich in nutrients, amino acids, and proteins, the micronizing process that purple rice goes through means that all that nutritional goodness is much more readily available for your body to use.
The problem with healing of acutely or chronically damaged tissue in the body is that there has to be excess energy for us to accomplish this healing, and very often, the area that needs the healing is so badly injured or diseased that there is insufficient energy available to heal. That makes it a chicken and egg type of thing for people without access to Micronized Purple Rice — without energy they cannot heal, and without first healing, they cannot produce enough energy to heal.
Micronized Purple Rice changes that. It provides cells with raw materials (nutrients) at no cost of energy (to digest and transport the nutrients into the cell).
Energy – Is Often the Missing Ingredient For Healing Processes to Take Place
With the abundance of stress, toxins and insufficient sleep in most people’s lives, the cells of the body often do not have surplus energy with which to obtain nutrients or initiate repair processes; in situations of disease, overexertion, invasion of microbes or free radical assault this deficiency can lead to chronic pain or damage. Micronized Purple Rice may be the only thing, besides sleep, that can create large enough amounts of excess cellular energy for healing to take place at a high rate. But it is not an “energy supplement” or anything like that — just super nutrients from a food source that have been milled down to be super accessible to your body’s cells.
Salient description points regarding Micronized Purple Rice include:
- Micronized Purple Rice supplies nearly everything except oxygen and water for creating ATP. It directly targets the mitochondria (power plant) of the cell to create ATP (cellular energy).
- Micronized Purple Rice does not have to be actively transported across cell membranes. Active transport process (digestion, absorption, circulation) consumes up to 35 units of ATP energy in order to make 36 units of ATP, netting only 1 ATP, while Micronized Purple Rice allows the entire 36 units of ATP to be netted.
- Micronized Purple Rice contains all of the essential amino acids, (making it a source of all proteins that could be needed for making repairs).
- It also contains all of the essential fatty acids (GLA, ALA, LA, SDA, EPA, DHA, and AA)
- and all of the essential functional sugars as well as an abundance of vitamins and minerals.
Its completeness in terms of essential amino acids, essential fatty acids and essential sugars, plus small molecular size and free pass into the cells and mitochondria makes these alpha glycans powerful in terms of health and wellbeing.
Alpha Polysaccharide Peptides Pass Easily Through Cellular Membranes
Cell membranes have pores and an active transport system which allows only particular atoms and molecules to pass through it. Most foods eaten must be metabolized before passing through the cell membrane. This requires energy in the form of stored ATP. Using nanotechnology, alpha polysaccharide peptides have been mechanically hydrolyzed to monosaccharides size. In this form, they pass through all cell membranes without the need to go through the usual metabolic pathways.
The mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell) have a double membrane and an active transport system, which even more carefully determines what molecules can enter into it. One type of molecule they always allow through are monosaccharides (alpha polysaccharide peptides), where the last step of their metabolism takes place via the Krebs cycle. The Krebs cycle converts the energy, which is held within the bonds between the atoms of each molecule, into packets of energy – ATP. ATP stands for adenosine triphosphate. (Cellular Energy)
After the production of ATP within the mitochondrion, ATP energy packet molecules migrate into the cell where its energy is released. If you had an electron microscope you could see little fireworks as the ATP turns into ADP (adenosine di phosphate). The cell uses the energy to perform its various duties: protein, RNA and DNA synthesis, cell membrane maintenance, organelle maintenance, as well as, and most important, detoxification and maintaining individual cell health.
MICRONIZED PURPLE RICE can provide each cell with up to 36 ATP, whereas an equivalent amount of normal carbohydrate provides each cell with 1 or 2 ATP. This is more energy than the cell has ever seen before. It takes care of all its cellular duties and still has more energy than it’s ever seen before – energy which it uses to do the work of repairing damage to the body’s cells.
However, just as food is eaten every day for energy, Micronized Purple Rice must be eaten every day consistently, if we want to keep cells in this heightened state of energy/health. The suggestion to spread servings throughout the day is because Micronized Purple Rice is water soluble and flushes through the system very quickly. It enters cells instantly, and the mitochondria do their work. But cells never go to sleep, they work 24/7. Always working, always detoxifying, always trying to maintain optimum health.
What you feed your body is of the greatest importance. What you feed your cells is even more crucial. What you feed to your cells make the world of difference. What you feed these cells is the power of the cells.
Alfa Micronized Purple Rice— is a Peerless Alpha AnthoCyanin Superfood — from specially processed strains of purple rice from Thailand. These rice strains are chosen because of their high concentration of anthocyanins, which give it its purple color and which offer numerous benefits, chief among which is the most powerful free radical protection of any food substance on earth.
The Purple, short-grain heirloom rice used in Alpha Micronized Purple Rice is more widely known as Forbidden Rice, since only ancient Chinese emperors were allowed to consume it. It is packed with powerful nutrients of many types.
The purple color, which comes from the presence of powerful phytonutrients known as anthocyanins, is the key to its powerful and unique antioxidant properties.
Purple rice has more proteins than white rice, and can have up to between 7 and 8.5 g of nutrients for each 100 g of rice, compared to only 5 grams in other rice strains.
Anthocyanins Plus Nanotechnology Yields Micronized Purple Rice!
Anthocyanins are potent free radical scavengers. But, Micronized Purple Rice incorporates alphaglycanology technology, whereby the food particles are reduced to nanosized particles. These food particles are so small that they have free access to cross through cellular and mitochondrial membranes and deliver their fuel and antioxidant molecules, WITH NO LOSS OF ENERGY due to active-transport (such as is necessary with most other foods).
With Micronized Purple Rice, you get cellular energy-enhancing properties, vital nutrition, and antioxidants delivered directly to your cells. All that is to say, Micronized Purple Rice is a nutrient-packed superfood, milled so finely that it can be absorbed directly into the body to do the most good the fastest.
