What is Raktashali Rice

Did you know, the red rice in Indian Ayurveda has its varieties. And Raktashali Rice(Oryza Punctata) is one of those varieties.  Its health benefits are unique and endless. There is a different thing about these old and sacred varieties of rice as they are the most beneficial and promote better health.
