Oats are a nutrient-rich food associated with lower blood cholesterol when consumed regularly. Oats are super-filling, satisfying, versatile, and can be used to cook a variety of healthy meals like salads and fruit porridges.
Oats are a rich source of beta-glucan fibre which is easy on the stomach and helps regulate bowel movements.
Certain antioxidants are almost exclusively found in oats which aid in dilating blood vessels, leading to better blood flow.
Soluble fibers and vitamins present in oats help reduce LDL cholesterol (the "bad” kind) and in general help keep the body clean.
Oatmeal porridge is not only healthy but also filling. Eating filling healthy foods ensures that you consume lesser number of calories and thus keep your weight in check.
