As you already may have read, Oats is a species of cereal grain loaded with nutritious properties and health benefits including lowering harmful effects of cholesterol and controlling diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Packed with more dietary fibre than any other grain and containing vitamins of the B-family like B-1, riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, vitamin B-6 and folate, oats can help in metabolizing carbohydrates, proteins, fats and nucleic acids from your food consumed, allowing the body to use energy drawing from it.
Oats, oat bran, and oatmeal contain beta-glucan, a type of fibre that has been proved to have the cholesterol-lowering properties. In addition, oats contain Avenanthramides - an antioxidant compound that prevents free radicals from damaging LDL cholesterol. With high amounts of fibre, oats stay in the stomach longer, reduce hunger and cravings, making it ideal for those on a diet or those who are unable to consume gluten.
