Do you love purple? I hope so. I hope you at least like it. Because maybe it means you’re smart, maybe not. But it’s definitely good for you….
You’ve probably heard that purple foods — from blueberries to purple versions of foods such as potatoes — are particularly good for your health, and you may have wondered what’s behind this effect. In fact, it literally is the purple color itself that’s good for you — the pigments that give foods their purple color are a family of potent antioxidants known as anthocyanins.
Studies have linked anthocyanins to lowered risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurological disease, cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease. They also appear to help control — and possibly prevent — obesity and diabetes, in part by inhibiting certain digestive enzymes and helping control levels of blood sugar. They are potent anti-inflammatories, and are therefore also likely to reduce the risk of most chronic diseases.
Consider Paula’s Micronized Purple Rice. Paula’s Micronized Purple Rice— is an 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 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 phyto-nutrients known as anthocyanins, is the key to its powerful and unique antioxidant properties.
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 very finely in order to be easily assimilated by the body and used by the body, to do the most good as quickly as possible.
So how can you boost your intake of these super-antioxidants? Start with Paula’s Purple Rice, of course! And include in your diet deep red, blue and purple fruits and vegetables. This includes all berries, including strawberries, as well as other fruits including cherries, pomegranates and plums.
Some vegetables are only high in anthocyanins if you pick the variety with the right color: purple sweet potatoes, red onions and purple cabbage, for example. Other high-anthocyanin vegetables include beets and eggplant. In the case of eggplant, be sure not to throw away the skin, as that’s where most of the anthocyanins reside. The skin is also high in fiber, potassium and magnesium.
The skins of red and purple grapes are of course a good source of anthocyanins, which also makes red wine a good source of this antioxidant. Along with resveratrol (another powerful antioxidant), anthocyanins may be responsible for many of the remarkable health benefits of red wine.
Even though we should be eating the best organically grown foods we can find and afford, (and that’s what I try to do), we would have to eat many pounds of these foods each day to get the equivalent of the concentrated anti-oxidants and anthocyanins and **other essential nutrients that we can get from just a few teaspoons each day of Paula’s Micronized Purple Rice!
So, if you didn’t like purple before, maybe you do now- at least I hope you see how good and beneficial purple foods and micronized purple rice can be for you. I love purple. The color, the foods and I especially love Paula’s Purple Rice and all the healthy benefits I get from it. Want to try it?
**Other essential nutrients in Paula’s Purple Rice:
- 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 well-being.
