Unlike other grains such as wheat and barley, even after processing oat retains the bran and germ, the parts of the grain which contains the majority of nutrients as well as high levels of cardioprotective substances.
Oat contains high levels of potassium and B vitamins. A minor element, avenalin, tones and energises the body as well as having a balancing effect on the nervous system.
