The Amazing Health Benefits of Oats

People might not realize it, but oats are one of the most powerful and nutritious food that they can, and should, include in their diet. For instance, oats are rich in fiber, which helps you feel fuller for longer, while also promotes and protects colon health.

However, there are many other benefits you can gain from eating a diet high in oats. Studies have shown oats can help lower and maintain cholesterol with a substance found in oats called beta-glucan. Taking three grams of oat fiber everyday could reduce your cholesterol by up to 23 percent. And, there are many studies that have been conducted to confirm those results.

Adding oats to your diet can also help to significantly lower blood pressure according to recent studies, while also decreasing your risk of diabetes by up to 61 percent. Amazingly, the fiber rich breakfast food has also been found to prevent asthma if given to individuals at an early age.

As Dr. Daniel Amen knows well, heart disease is one of the most deadly illnesses, and eating a diet with oats can help stop the progression of coronary artery disease with those who have been previously diagnosed.

The benefits of eating a diet with oats in it are almost endless. You can easily add the super-food to your diet by eating a delicious bowl of natural oatmeal as your first meal of the day.


Miscalculated Vitamin D Recommendations

When it comes to vitamins, Susan McGala says there is always a suggested amount that we should get in a day, and we always trust that number to be just right. We purchase vitamins according to the recommendations that we have been given, and we expect to be doing the right thing when we consume the vitamins according to those recommendations. But, the recommendations aren’t always 100% accurate, as is the case now with the news that has come out in regard to the old recommendations for vitamin D.

It seems that the recommendation that we have been given when it comes to vitamin D intake is too low. Our bodies need more vitamin D than had originally been suggested. We need to consume a higher amount of vitamin D to maintain the health of our bones than has been the suggested daily intake for years. Sometimes the recommendations that we are given in regard to vitamins are just not correct.
