Oatmeal was ranked third in terms of health benefits by scientists from Harvard Medical School. This was stated by Yulia Chekhonina, Ph.D. and dietitian.
According to the expert, oatmeal greatly contributes to the improvement of intestinal microflora. It contains choline, which helps fight excess cholesterol. In addition, the Center’s study shows a reduction in the risk of hypertension when eating porridge twice a day. Buckwheat porridge is one line higher. Its calorie content is lower than that of oatmeal. Buckwheat also contains dietary fiber and B vitamins, and it, in turn, helps to conserve energy and maintain endurance.

“This is the only vegetable product that contains one of the three fatty acids – Omega-3. It is necessary for blood vessels and blood circulation because it reduces blood viscosity. It is also a preventive factor against some malignant diseases because it has antioxidant properties, helps prolong youth, and prevents premature aging,” Chekhonina said.
