So what makes it so nutrient dense?
When it comes to vegan protein, Brown rice is packed full of it and protein is needed to build and repair tissues, make enzymes, hormones and other body chemicals. Protein is also an important building block of bones, muscle, cartilage, skin and blood.
Brown rice is a wonderful wholegrain which is loaded with fibre, that’s essential for optimum gut health as well as helping to stabilise those blood sugar levels.
Unlike white rice, brown rice retains its amazing nutrients that white rice lacks such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Although brown rice is high in nutrients such as magnesium, selenium, some B vitamins, it’s exceptionally high in manganese. Manganese is a mineral which is vital for many important processes in the body, such as bone development, wound healing, muscle contraction metabolism, nerve function and blood sugar regulation.
But Blissful not only has brown rice, it combines it with the antioxidant powerhouse that is cacao.
Cacao is loaded with antioxidants and has 40x the concentration of antioxidants than blueberries.
Cacao has the highest plant based source of magnesium which is needed for over 300 chemical reactions within the body including supporting heart health, energy production, muscle relaxation, helps turn glucose into energy enabling your brain to work with clarity and focus, and support blood sugar balance.
Cacao also contains 4 amazing mood boosting chemicals serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine, which can help with those feelings of happiness and wellbeing as well as alleviating symptoms of depression.
And not forgetting the high concentration of plant based iron with a whopping a whopping 7.3mg per 100g.
