There's a reason why oats are often a key ingredient in breakfast cereals-they're good for you! Made from the oat hulls, oat bran is a wonderful source of soluble fiber which can support cholesterol and heart health. Oat bran supplies trace amounts of naturally occurring B vitamins, and minerals including manganese, phosphorus, calcium, iron, potassium and more.
What are oats? An annual plant, oats (avena sativa) grow best in temperate climates like northern Europe and North America, where they can tolerate cool temperatures with abundant rain. All parts of the oat plant are used for food, supplements and skin care products including the seed (oat), leaves and stems (oat straw) and bran (the outer layer of whole oats).
Soluble vs. insoluble fiber-what's the difference? Both soluble and insoluble fiber are vital for good health and wellness. Since neither is absorbed into the bloodstream, they are excreted through your body. Soluble fiber forms a gel when mixed with water while insoluble fiber passes through your system intact. Insoluble fiber sources include wheat bran, vegetables, lentils, flax seeds, most whole grains and most beans. Because its main function is to add bulk to the intestines, the greatest benefit of insoluble fiber is digestive health. Soluble fiber sources include oat bran, soy, fruit, psyllium husk, navy beans, black beans, edamame, figs, and oranges among others. Soluble fiber, which attracts water, helps prolong the time it takes to empty your stomach. This means sugar is released and absorbed more slowly. That's good news for blood sugar support and total health. Its main benefit, however, is in supporting healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range.
