The magic grain we know by the name of Oats

Eating oats in your diet provides a wide range of important health benefits. Oatmeal and oat bran are significant sources of dietary fiber. This fiber contains a mixture of about half soluble and half insoluble fibers. Oats, like all cholesterol-lowering agents, are most effective when consumed as part of a low-fat, high-fiber diet taken together with plenty of exercise. The beneficial health effects of oats are best if ½-1 cup (1½-3 ounces) of oats are eaten every day. One component of the soluble fibre found in oats is beta-glucans, a soluble fiber which has proven effective in lowering blood cholesterol. A bowl of oats is all that the body needs to get its daily dose of protein and fiber in one serving. Oatmeal has been known by many as the healthiest breakfast option around. Not only is it low in fat, it is also delicious and versatile too. Get your oatmeal on!
