  • It reduces cholesterol
  • Prevents/reduces gallbladder stones
  • Because of the bran, it’s excellent for digestion and also helps prevent diarrhea
  • And also helps control type 2 diabetes
  • Another advantage is the fact that buckwheat grows very quickly and there is no need for spraying it with pesticides to protect it, therefore most of the kinds are actually organic.

  • Oat bran contains mostly carbohydrates and a little protein and fat
  • It contains almost all the necessary vitamins: A, C, D, K, Beta Carotene, Lutein and Lycopene
  • It also has a respectable contingency of minerals: potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, selenium, iodine, zinc, iron, chromium, phosphorus and sulfur
  • Helps cleanse the body, improves metabolism and strengthens the immune system
