When we were young, our parents or grandparents used to feed us with oatmeal, which filled us with energy from the very first hours of the morning.
But what makes oats special? Why do we feel so energized after eating them?
Well, oats are a long-term energy supplier that do not strain your digestive system. They are also rich in vegetable proteins and soluble fibers, which absorb water and help form a gel in the stomach. This process helps you feel full for longer, while helping to lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
Anthropologists discovered ancient writings that tell all about how the Dacians and Germans used this cereal as a staple food. Later on, in the Middle Ages, the Nordic populations of Europe have also started consuming oats, which they soon found to be an excellent energizing food, particularly great during the cold and humid weather.
But oats are much more than that.
