In the meantime, why don’t we expound on the health benefits of oats for you. According to renowned nutritionist Ishi Khosla, a full bowl of oats as cereal or mixed in chappattis or breads is a good way to derive the health benefits of oats on a regular basis. Oats are, in fact, a cure for cholesterol as well.
Numerous studies have linked cereal fibre intake to reduced risk of Type 2 Diabetes. Oat Beta-Glucan may delay gastric emptying time and consequently affect the rate of uptake of glucose from the small intestine.
Trying to lose weight? A fibre-rich meal is processed more slowly, promoting earlier satiety, thereby preventing obesity. In addition, high complex carbohydrate content and low glycemic index contribute to weight reduction.
