Shen Blossom Rice Sprouts are a tasty way to support your health by making the wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals, proteins, antioxidants, and micronutrients in rice available and absorbable in a way that anyone can enjoy.
Rice has been a staple food of some of the longest lived cultures on earth. To date, rice has been nourishing and sustaining us by providing one-fifth of the calories people consume worldwide.
Rice is such a nutrient dense food that many common isolated nutrient supplements you find on store shelves contain, or are derived from rice.
Just a few include:
- Ubiquinone Ubiquinol (CoQ10)
- Vitamin E
- B-Vitamin Complex
- Rice Protein Powders
- Tocotrienols and Tocopherol complexes
Our Shen Blossom Rice Sprouts are produced in a unique way, unlocking exponentially more nutrients than what is commonly available in many powders that only use the rice bran.
The Rice Sprout Advantage
Life force is activated in plants by the process of germination. Once a rice grain is germinated, there is a specific window where a small white tail on the rice forms and reaches its maximum life force potential.
When a rice grain sprouts, the vitamin, mineral, and fatty acid content increases 20 times, and the enzymes can increase up to 100 times.
Once we activate the rice to its full potential, we then let the rice sprouts go though a mild fermentation, unlocking and making nutrients that were previously unavailable, bio-available and easily digestible.
Just 2 tablespoons of our Rice Sprouts is equivalent to approximately 20 lbs of rice nutrition. You read that right, 20 lbs.
Our rice sprouts contain elements of the endosperm, rice germ and rice bran, providing a full spectrum storehouse of nutrition, including:
- All Essential Amino Acids
- Vitamin E
- Whole B Vitamin Complex
- Folic Acid
- Polyphenols, Phytosterols, and Sterolins
- Gamma Oryzanol and GABA
- Whole Tocotrienol Complex (the highest concentration found in nature)
- Multiple Micro-nutrients, Vitamins, and Minerals
- Pre-biotic Elements
- DMG + TMG
- IP6 Inositol Hexaphosphate
- Lutein and Zeaxanthin
Benefits of Rice Sprouts Include:
- Increased ATP Energy Production
- Over 100 Different Antioxidants
- Collagen Restoration and Tissue Repair
- Improved Vision and Eyesight
- Improved Digestion and Assimilation of Nutrients
- Increased Strength and Endurance
- Better Mood and Brain Support
- Healthy Liver and Muscle Support
Our rice sprouts are great for nourishing pregnant women and young children. They help people who have been on long term carb restrictive diets, as it helps to bring back balance to the body, improving mood, sleep functions, liver health, nutrient replenishment, and healthy glycogen replenishment without overdoing the volume of carbs.
Rice and Chi (Qi)
Cultures worldwide have traditionally respected the ability of rice to nourish their bodies and to increase vitality and resistance to disease. In eastern culture where rice is a staple food, rice is thought to increase the body's Chi, giving the body both energy and substance to thrive.
Chi (also spelled Qi) is a much deeper concept than we will discuss here, but to simplify, Qi translates to life energy, or vital energy. Qi can represent energy itself, or the state of a particular energy.
Trying to define Qi is like trying to define or quantify life. There are theories that try to make sense of this natural phenomenon, and the understanding of Qi is always unfolding and being more deeply understood. The concept of Qi has been debated for thousands of years and continues to this day.
I tend to think that Qi is more of a dynamic process than a static concept, and choose to give a very basic understanding here in order not to narrow or limit your future or current understanding, since it is a very deep subject. The definition of Qi can change relative to what context it is being used within.
If we look at how Qi is produced in the body, we can observe that it is produced by the air we breathe in and the food we consume.
In fact, one of the ways that the characters for Qi can be translated is "air and rice".
If we look at this from a scientific perspective, we could call Qi "bio-electricity".
The following scientific formula points to the biochemical reaction that leads to energy production or Qi:
Glucose + O2 ----> 6 CO2 + 6 H2O
ΔG0= - 686 Kcal (energy content)
This leads to heat/light/Bio-electricity (Qi)
So you can see that the above can point to rice as the glucose, oxygen as the air, and Qi is simply the bio-electricity.
How To Use Rice Sprouts Powder
Simply mix a couple tablespoons of rice sprouts into 4-6oz of pure water, or mix in with your favorite protein shake, smoothie, or food.
Take care not to cook your Rice Sprouts. Great effort has been put into gently and naturally unlocking all the nutrition of this premium grade rice, so please be mindful not to cook with it, as you will degrade or destroy much of the beneficial nutrients.
You may, however, add to warm dishes. For example, you can add it to cooked oats after they have had a chance to cool.
You may eat them straight out of the bag with a spoon if you wish (as we often do :-). Just be aware not to allow any moisture into the bag, as this is a living nutrient powder and it is affected by moisture, oxygen, and light.
Healing Qualities of Rice
Congee is a type of medicinal rice porridge that has been served for centuries in east Indian and Chinese homes. In this ancient recipe, rice is slow cooked for a long period of time in order to break it down and make the nutrients bio-available and easily digestible. It is recommended for older people or those with compromised immunity.
Congee is known to strengthen the spleen and stomach meridians, and to dramatically improve the digestive system. It tonifies the blood and Qi, and is demulcent, cooling, and nourishing. A chronically ill person often has weak blood and low energy, which becomes remediated by consuming congee. When congee becomes a consistent part of one's diet, it can help people who need to lose weight do so, yet it also helps scrawny people gain weight. It delivers what the body needs.
Our Shen Blossom Rice Sprouts are like an instant congee, with the exception that the rice spouts have a living nutrient quality that provides much more nutrition and bio-availability due to its special processing. This offers the full spectrum nutrition of rice, without having to go through all the work to make the nutrition bio-available, and risking losing some key components through the cooking process.

Love to add to cacao smoothies, tastes amazing, can eat of the jar. A great way to add a nutrient dense food into your daily routine.
Great taste!! My 5 year old daughter likes it too!! I feel more balanced and less anxious while taking the rice sprouts.
Awesome supplement! Highly recommend! Melts in your mouth right off the spoon. Dissolves well in liquid also. Great mild sweet taste.
This really does have a nice, mild sweet taste that works great in smoothies. Nice thing is that it blends fairly well with water with no dramatic clumping. Now part of my daily routine. Recommended!
Awesome delicious taste, I could easily eat more than the recommended amount. Hard to say what the effects are because I'm taking other herbs as well, but it just feels so right to consume this.
