Forget what you thought or heard about oatmeal. It’s more than just that stuff your grandmother used to give you for breakfast.
Oatmeal may not be as chic as an egg white omelet. But let me tell you, a bowl of these wholesome whole grains can pack a healthful punch.
Folate (heart health, stroke reducer, prenatal must have), Magnesium (Bone health, muscle building, chronic pain reducer), Iron ( brain health, regulates body temperature, chronic disease fighter) and B vitamins ( Boost Immunity, healthy metabolism maintainer and lowers cholesterol) are some of the vitamins and minerals found in oats. Regularly including oats in your diet can help prevent a whole lot of health issues later in life.
