8 Health Benefits of Adding Oats to your Diet
Oats are considered to be one of the greatest whole grains on the planet, and with GOOD reason. While oats are typically used for breakfast, you can include them in your cooking for a whole range of purposes, from cookies to granola bars, muffins and more.
- Oats Contain Antioxidants
There is a unique type of antioxidant called avenanthramides, which are found almost exclusively in oats. This group of antioxidants may help to reduce blood pressure due to the elevated production of nitric oxide. Another type of Antioxidant found in oats is called Ferulic acid.
- Highly Nutritious
Oats contain fibre, protein, and carbohydrates, they also have an excellent nutritional composition. Because they are packed full of essential vitamins and minerals, when you eat them, you are getting a highly nutrient dense food. They contain the below-listed elements:
- Vitamin B1, B3, B5, & B6
- Blood Sugar Control
Oats may have the ability to reduce blood sugar levels due to the attribution of the Beta-Glucans potential to formulate a dense gel which can hold-back the emptying of the stomach and overall glucose absorption into the bloodstream. Beta-Glucan is a variety of soluble fibre that is found in large amounts in oats.
- Skin Health
There is a specific ingredient that is found in many modern skin care products; it is called Colloidal Oatmeal. Essentially this is another term used for finely ground oats. In 2003, the FDA approved the inclusion of this ingredient for the purpose of skin protection, but in history, the inclusion of oats in skin care dates back a lot longer.
- It Helps you Feel Fuller for Longer
Oats are renowned for being one of the most filling types of breakfast. It is commonly regarded that if you eat filling foods, this helps to stay in control of your calorie consumption and removes the desire to consume more calories throughout the day. For those looking to lose weight, oats are a great choice for breakfast. The inclusion of the soluble fibre Beta-Glucan is also key to this point, this is because it serves to enhance your feeling of being fuller for longer, while also delaying the time it takes to empty your stomach.
Yet another benefit that is directly linked to Beta-Glucan is the potential that it provides to lessen LDL cholesterol levels. By enhancing the excretion of bile that is rich in cholesterol, it can lessen the amount of cholesterol in the bloodstream.
- Heart Healthy
The inclusion of fibre doesn’t just benefit the digestive system, it is also linked to heart health. The FDA has officially recognised Beta-Glucan as a key component that may lessen the risk of coronary heart disease. Grains along with many other oats are considered to be key to reducing hypertension and cholesterol, both of which negatively impact heart health.
- Packed with Protein
Just a single serving of oatmeal contains approximately 5g of protein. As far as grains and protein content are concerned, that’s a pretty good amount. With the inclusion of Whey in the Good Guru’s Organic Oats and Whey - Berries, and Organic Oats and Whey - Chocolate – this truly boosts your regular consumption of protein to help you attain your health goals more easily.
