Recently, oats have been blowing up on TikTok as the ideal healthy breakfast. This has not been without merit, as oats do have a lot of great health benefits. Firstly, they are a whole grain, meaning they are packed with nutrients. They are an incredible source of over 9 nutrients, some of which include manganese, phosphorous, and magnesium. They are also packed with protein and fiber and relatively low in calories, especially compared to the amount of nutrients. They are rich in antioxidants, which are incredibly important for the body to protect against chronic diseases. Oats also contain a special type of fiber called beta-glucan, which can lower bad cholesterol levels, lower blood sugar, and increase the feeling of fullness. This type of fiber is also great for diabetics as is balanced out blood sugar. Because they keep you full for long, oats are great for weight loss because they are nutrient-packed and will leave you eating less often. Oats are also great for the skin, as they are extremely soothing and can increase moisture. There are many skincare products that have oatmeal in them because of this property. There have even been some studies that show that children eating oatmeal regularly can decrease the chance of developing asthma. Overall, oats are a great addition to any diet, and with their rise in popularity, people have found incredibly creative ways of preparing them!
