Oats are one of the most perfect breakfast foods. Thanks to their nutrients, they are also suitable for weight loss. They contain complex carbohydrates with a gradual release, and have a low glycemic index. They contain a lot of insoluble and soluble fiber (which make them beneficial for digestion), help to combat high blood pressure, and fill you up for a long time. Thanks to omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids, regular oat consumption has a positive influence on the cholesterol level in blood. According to scientific studies, oats are designated as a good form of cancer prevention. With regular consumption, oats confer to your body fiber and nutrients that combat this disease. Oats contain a high amount of manganese (beneficial for healthy functioning of the nervous system, immune system, bones, and teeth health), vitamin K (necessary for blood coagulation and lowers cancer risk), phosphor, potassium, calcium, iron, zinc, and many other nutrients.
