Science-Based Health Benefits of Oatmeal

Science-Based Health Benefits of Oatmeal

A lot of people might see oatmeal as this uninteresting, gooey, grey slop that their mothers forced them to eat for breakfast, but in reality, oatmeal is packed with complex carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals that can be very beneficial to those trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

We at West Lake Pharmacy believe that living a good and healthy life begins with a nutritious breakfast. As a responsible and well-meaning retail pharmacy in Union City, New Jersey, we’re giving you science-based health benefits you can gain from eating a simple bowl of oats.

  • Oatmeal is a stellar fiber source.
    With four grams of fiber per cup, cooked oatmeal covers about 14% of the daily required value of fiber, making it a good source, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
  • Oatmeal can bolster healthy digestion.
    The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health says, “not only do oats provide insoluble fiber, which promotes regularity, it also has soluble fiber.” This helps feed the good bacteria living in the gut, for a healthier microbiome.
  • Oatmeal helps lower cholesterol.
    Oatmeal contains a particular fiber called beta-glucan, which acts like a Roto-Rooter to clear out cholesterol that may be building up in arterial walls.
  • Oatmeal can help boost body immunity and raise its energy.
    One bowl of oatmeal contains not just fiber but also B vitamins, plus minerals including manganese, iron, magnesium, and zinc. These are all necessary for immune function and proper distribution of oxygen in the body.

If oatmeal isn’t enough to meet your daily vitamin and mineral needs, we have a variety of reliable supplements available in our pharmacy.

Our compounding pharmacy in New Jersey can also alter its taste and shape. Contact us today for more details.
