  • Rich in naturally-occurring oils

Naturally occurring oils are beneficial for the body as these healthful fats help normalize cholesterol levels.

The fiber content of brown rice keeps bowel function at its peak since it makes digestion that much easier.

It is the perfect addition to the daily diet for those seeking bowel regularity. In addition, it also makes the tummy feel full which translates to smaller meal portions.
