Use the benefits of oatmeal

If you want to make your Oatmeal more appealing and more healthier in healing then add a tablespoon of Virgin Pure Coconut Oil. Both are wonderful for Eczema problems and combined its a powerhouse on the intestines for healing and topically on eczema etc. The only downfall in overall health is the sheer amount of Mucus it contains like Rice and Eggs. But alas if you're suffering Eczema, psorisis and other INTESTINAL problems then you really want that mucus. Some use the Slipperly Elm as the intestinal mucus layer also.

The Benefits of Oatmeal

by: Ryan Cote


Eating a bowl of oatmeal each morning is the perfect way to start
your day off right. This article will explain the six benefits of
eating oatmeal and ways to make it taste delicious.

First off, the oatmeal discussed here is not the instant kind that
comes in the different flavors — these are full of sugar. The real
stuff is the plain oat flakes from Quaker Oats or a similar brand.

The benefits of oatmeal are due to the fact that it's made from oats
and oats are a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber.

According to the American Cancer Society:

1. Insoluble fiber's cancer-fighting properties are due to the fact
that it attacks certain bile acids, reducing their toxicity.

2. Soluble fiber may reduce LDL cholesterol without lowering HDL
cholesterol. LDL is bad; HDL is good.

3. Soluble fiber slows down the digestion of starch. This may be
beneficial to diabetics because, when you slow down the digestion of
starch, you avoid the sharp rises in your blood sugar level that
usually occur following a meal.

4. It has been found that those who eat more oats are less likely to
develop heart disease, a disease that is currently widespread in the
United States.

5. The phytochemicals in oat may also have cancer-fighting
properties.

6. Oats are a good source of many nutrients including vitamin E,
zinc, selenium, copper, iron, manganese and magnesium. Oats are also
a good source of protein.

The difference between insoluble and soluble fiber, besides the
foods that they come from, is what they do in your body.

Insoluble fiber's main role is that it makes stools heavier and
speeds their passage through the gut, relieving constipation.
Soluble fiber breaks down as it passes through the digestive tract,
forming a gel that traps some substances related to high
cholesterol, thus reducing the absorption of cholesterol into the
bloodstream.

Oatmeal has a pretty bland taste, which makes it hard for the
average person to consume every morning. Here are ways you can make
it taste better.

1. Make the oatmeal with milk instead of water. This will also add
calcium and more protein.

2. Add Stevia powder to the oatmeal. It will naturally sweeten up
the taste without adding sugar.

3. Stir in your favorite-flavored protein powder to it after it's
been cooked. This gives the oatmeal a pretty good taste plus it adds
protein. Combine this with using milk and you'll have a meal that is
high in fiber, calcium and protein!

4. Add fruit such as blueberries to the oatmeal.

You should aim to eat roughly 1 cooked cup of oatmeal each morning
for optimal health benefits. And play around with the above
preparation suggestions until you find a taste that you fall in love
with.

Your heart and body will thank you for it!
