The manganese in brown rice helps to synthesize body fats. And it becomes vital to helping those battling obesity to control their weight. Brown rice reduces fat and body mass index, which is a weight-to-height ratio used as an indicator of obesity and underweight. Brown rice also enhances the activity of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which elevates the levels of good HDL cholesterol in obese people. Germinated brown rice has additional anti-obesity effects.
