Brown rice is high in magnesium. Magnesium as well as calcium, is necessary for healthy bones. About two-thirds of the magnesium in the human body is found in our bones. Some help give bones their physical structure, while the rest is found on the surface of the bone where it is stored for the body to draw upon as needed. Brown rice can help you keep those storage sites replenished and ready to meet your body's needs. A cup of brown rice will give you 21.0% of the daily value for magnesium.
