Oats for Beautiful Skin, Hair, and Health
A Good Start to Your Day
It is said that a healthy breakfast at the beginning of your day can do wonders for you mood and keep you happy and satisfied for the rest of the day. One of the most popular breakfast choices that have spread all over the world is oats. Oats are a form of cereal grain, mainly known for their seeds. They are a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants. The most intact and whole form of oats is known
as oat groats. The oats that we consume go through the process of being rolled, crushed or steel-cut. Instant oats are a highly processed form of oats and are usually advised against consumption since they are stripped of most of their nutrients and all that is left are the fats and carbs. Oats can be consumed in various forms. The most famous one is the oats porridge which is made by boiling oats in water and milt. You can add berries or fruits to this to increase the nutrient value and taste. People have also come up with savoury recipes for oats such as soups and curries.
Oats to the Rescue!!
Oats seem to have a huge number of benefits for the human body. They are the answer to all your prayers. They contribute to boosting your health, skin and hair.
1) The dietary fibre (beta-glucan being the most important of that) and minerals present in oats help avert numerous dangerous conditions like heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and even cancer. They also aid in weight loss. As mentioned before, oats are a huge source of fibre, which helps to keep you satiated for longer and improve your digestive system and cleanses it. If your body has a habit of retaining water, thus making you feel bloated all day; oats help to soak up this retained water and further aid in your weight loss.
2) Oats also have a major effect on oily skin. If your skin secretes excessive oils which results in acne and pimples, oats are your saviours. Just boil some oats in water and apply that paste to your face. Oats help to soak the excessive oil on your skin, thus leaving it clear and glowing. Oats also help to lighten your skin tone and act as a natural cleanser.
3) Tired of itchy scalp and dandruff in your hair? Oats to the rescue! Just like your skin, oats are a major benefactor for your hair as well. Just make a paste and apply it to your skin and experience the magic yourself. Add one spoon of lemon or vinegar to prevent a dry scalp and keep your hair shiny. Oats also prevent major hair loss and help to increase the thickness of your hair.
Oats are quite versatile and can be consumed both in cooked and raw forms. You can achieve a softer texture by soaking a cup of raw oats in two cups of water and leaving it for 2 hours. Get delicious Overnight oat bowls delivered to your doorstep with Garden Bar.
