Tips & Notes
Oat bran is a high-fiber food that can lower your cholesterol and provide a number of other health benefits. To get the most health benefits from oat bran, make it a part of your daily diet.
One benefit of oat bran is its ability to produce long-term improvements in your blood sugar following a meal, as demonstrated in a study reported in the “Journal of the American Dietetic Association.”
Oat bran helps to keep blood sugar levels from getting too high after a meal by slowing down the digestion of carbohydrates and reducing the rate at which sugar enters your bloodstream. It may also improve blood sugar levels by increasing sensitivity to insulin, which helps to clear sugar from the blood.
Another major benefit of oat bran is its ability to lower cholesterol. Beta-glucan, the main soluble fiber in oat bran was shown to significantly lower total cholesterol and LDL or “bad” cholesterol in a recent study. The fiber in oat bran binds with cholesterol-rich bile to increase the amount of cholesterol that is excreted.
Oat bran also helps to reduce the amount of cholesterol absorbed from the foods you eat. Reducing cholesterol can help to prevent the buildup of dangerous plaque in your arteries.
