Health Benefits of Oatmeal:

Nothing starts off the day better than a bowl of warm oatmeal. This traditional meal has been a smart choice by many as oatmeal carries a variety of health benefits. Below are seven reasons why you should enjoy a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast with spiced apple rings.

  1. Lowers Cholesterol--Oatmeal contains a strand of fiber called beta-gluten that reduces levels of bad cholesterol. Just one bowl of oatmeal can lower cholesterol by up to 20 percent.
  2. Boosts Immune System--Beta-gluten can also amp up the immune system and help fight bacterial infections.
  3. Special Antioxidants for Heart Protection--Oatmeal does not just lower bad cholesterol, it also protects good cholesterol.
  4. Stabilizes Blood Sugar--Being rich in fiber allows oatmeal to stabilize the blood sugar and keep your system from "crashing" by mid-day. Sugary and refined carbohydrates can cause you to have a surge of energy in the morning, but unlike fiber rich cereals the energy usually does not last.
  5. Lowers Risk of Diabetes--Oatmeal also contains high amounts of Magnesium which helps the body to properly digest glucose as well as secrete insulin.
  6. Prevents Breast Cancer--Whole grains and a rich in fiber diet can protect against breast cancer. Eating oatmeal and other whole grains can reduce your risk of breast cancer by up to 40 percent.
  7. Gluten-Friendly--Although oatmeal does contain gluten it is such a small amount that it can be tolerated by adults and children alike with Celiac disease.
