Oats

 

GOOD DIGESTION: Oats contain a wealth of fibre, which helps to maintain a healthy digestive system. It also helps to regulate blood sugar levels, preventing sugar spikes and crashes. Fibre is also digested slower in the body, keeping you feeling fuller for longer.

REDUCES CHOLESTORAL: Oats contain a specific type of fibre, known as beta-glucan, which can help lower unhealthy levels of cholesterol. It can also reduce the risk of high blood pressure and heart attacks.

KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON: Oats contain the alkaloid gramine, which is a natural sedative. This can help treat anxiety, depression and insomnia naturally without any side effects.

ENERGY: Oats are Low GI Carbohydrates, meaning they release slowly into the blood stream and give you a slow release of energy throughout a long period of time. Unlike high-sugar carbohydrates (the bad kind) like white bread, or white pasta, oats convert into glucose slowly without giving you a sugar-crash.
