Oat, scientific name Avena sativa, is a type of grain. It is difficult to cook as the grains are large and solid. Therefore, they are generally preferred as crushed, cut, and ground. Oatmeal contains fiber, iron, protein, potassium, selenium, magnesium as well as vitamins B1, B2, and B6. Thanks to the high amount of amino acids it contains, it stimulates lectin production in the liver and thus supports the cleansing of toxins from your body. Oatmeal is rich in carbohydrates and provides energy to the body. Contains plenty of Omega 3 and linoleic acids. These substances are known as “good fats” support heart and brain activity by helping to reduce bad cholesterol (LDL). Oatmeal, which contains eight essential amino acids, is an important source of protein for this reason.
