When is the best time to consume OAT?

Jan 30, '23
Eating oats is a great way to start your day off in the morning, as it can help to keep you feeling full and satisfied throughout the morning ( Good for weight loss ).
But did you know that consuming oats at dinner time can also help in lowering down your cholesterol?
One of the key benefits of oats is their high fiber content, specifically beta-glucan. This type of fiber dissolves in water, turning into a gel that acts as a sponge, binding to cholesterol and fats and removing them from the bloodstream to be excreted.Studies have shown that consuming 3 grams of beta-glucan from whole oats can reduce total cholesterol by 12 points.

As our body processes cholesterol at night, it makes sense to consume oats at dinner time to take advantage of this natural process. In addition, many cholesterol-lowering medications are also taken at night. Eating low-calorie oatmeal for dinner can not only help you lose weight, but also lower your cholesterol levels.

So next time you're thinking about what to have for dinner, consider oats as a tasty and healthy option. Not only will it help you to feel full and satisfied, but it will also improve your cholesterol levels.
