But, before we jump into the recipe, let me remind some of the most incredible benefits of oats. Yes, my friend. Because “Food IS Medicine.”
Five Health Benefits of Oats
1. Rich in Antioxidants and Nutrients
Half of cup of oats contain more than 10 different nutrients and vitamins for your body, including Manganese, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Copper, and many more.
2. Can Lower Cholesterol Levels and Improve Blood Sugar
Heart disease is the main cause of death globally. As a human culture, we tend to take a pill to solve our health issues, and forget that food is our medicine.
For example, the beta-glucan fiber in oats is reduces both cholesterol levels: total and LDL levels. Furthermore, the beta-glucan’s ability to form a thick gel delays the absorption of glucose into the blood; thus reducing the sugar levels in the body.
3. Relieve Constipation and Might Help you Lose Weight
Constipation is a very common issue globally. Especially when a person lacks of proper nutrition and exercise, this problem arises.
A common solution are laxatives, but the side effects of these affect the quality of life and other organs in the body.
Many studies have found that the fiber outer layer of the oats helps relieve constipation in people.
Now that we have discussed one of the most important health benefits of oats, let’s jump into this Delicious Banana and Blueberry Oatmeal. And check out my other breakfast ideas
