Oats have always fallen into the bucket of “healthy” food, but most don’t know why exactly.
While oats contain beneficial antioxidants and plant-derived compounds called polyphenols (also found in things like olive oil), the most notable is a unique group of antioxidants called avenanthramides.
Multiple studies suggested that Avenanthramides may help lower blood pressure levels by increasing the production of nitric oxide. This gas molecule helps dilate blood vessels and leads to better blood flow. They’ve also been studied for numerous other potential benefits, such as their anti-inflammatory properties.
We’ve heard “breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” more times than we can count. But what’s more important is a protein-packed breakfast.
Studies have shown that the addition of a daily high-protein breakfast helped with weight management by preventing body fat gain and fewer calories consumed due to feeling satiated.
