Oatmeal every morning. The thought sometimes solicits a frown from both adults and children. They will go for waffles, cereals and pancakes, but not oatmeal. What they don’t realize are the important health benefits, this seemingly small earth produce gives to everyone. Let’s start!
Lowers blood cholesterol level
Oatmeal is a very good source of soluble fiber, which is also found in apples, pears, prunes and barley. Soluble fiber inhibits the body’s absorption of low-density-lipoprotein, or LDL, which is known as the bad cholesterol. Eating just one-and-a-half cup of oatmeal each morning, contains more than five grams of fiber, enough to reduce cholesterol level.
Reduces risk of high blood pressure
Eating one bowl of oatmeal or whole grain cereal per day is recommended for postmenopausal women who have the tendency to develop high blood pressure level because of hormones deficiency. Men too can also reduce the risk of heart disease by consuming oatmeal on a daily basis.
Rich in Antioxidants
Avenanthramides is a special type of antioxidants and oatmeal is full of this. Avenanthramides fight off free radicals that attack high-density lipoproteins, or HDL, which is known as the good cholesterol. These also protect LDL cholesterol from oxidizing from copper, which reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Avenanthramides also prevents the arteries from hardening. Vitamin C intake enhances the benefits of oatmeal.
Stabilizes Blood Sugar
Fiber in oatmeal stabilizes blood sugar level as it acts like a sponge and flashes out later excess glucose from eating high carbs. Once the sugar level is stabilized, diabetes is not a scary illness anymore. Add low fat milk to your oatmeal everyday is beneficial too.
Boosts the Immune System
The beta-glucan fiber contained in oatmeal helps the immune cells regenerate and fights bacterial infection.
Prevents weight gain
Because oatmeal is so rich in fiber, it will make you fuller for a longer period of time. Fiber will increase the viscosity of the stomach’s contents so that it will take longer to empty. Feeling full for a longer period of time will also prevent the need to snack on sugary or salty foods throughout the day.
