Fermented rice can be a great source of probiotics which are extremely beneficial for the body and is essentially what does the magic.

If you crinkle your nose at the thought of fermented foods–you may want to keep reading this article. One of the most popular health and beauty trends to have emerged over the past couple of years is the use of rice water–either consumed or applied topically for skin and hair health.

Fermented rice water was veritably one of the most popular ingredients in ancient Chinese medicine and is also used as a key ingredient in many modern Korean beauty products.

However, what is the correct way to determine if you should use rice water? Are there any health benefits to it?

The study also explained how fermented rice beverages–which are alcoholic in nature–are one of the most common beverages consumed in Northeast India.
