Here are some of the health benefits you'll find from a simple porridge bowl.
- Porridge is an excellent source of both insoluble and soluble fiber that is both vital to a healthy digestive system, but it's not the only benefit to be gained from the fiber.
- It helps lower cholesterol levels, control the weight of your body and keep blood pressure under control and reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes strokes, heart disease, and more.
- Another reason porridge oats can benefit your gut is that they aid in feeding the 'good' microbiome' bacteria.
- It's believed that your gut health impacts the health of a variety of issues, such as the skin, mood, immune system, and the weight of our bodies to name some examples. The gut is often described as the "second brain' due to the effect of gut health on our entire body.
Energy is yet another benefit that porridge can provide. "Slow-release" energy, to be precise. Since oats have an extremely low glycemic index they don't trigger the blood sugar spike (like that you'd get from a sugary breakfast cereal).
