The best gluten-free oats are organic and non-GMO (genetically modified organisms). Genetically modified foods are banned or regulated in most of the world due to concerns about their health effects on humans. Organic foods are grown without harmful pesticides and/or herbicides because these chemicals can have a negative effect on the body, building up over the course of years to toxic levels.

That’s why we made super healthy Holy Crap Maple + Gluten-Free Oat organic oats cereal blend.

7 Reasons Why To Choose Gluten Free, Organic Oats 

  1. Oats and oat bran are among the most heart-healthy foods in the world. Loaded with soluble and dietary fibre, oats are great for the digestive system and the arteries. Soluble fibre becomes a gel in the stomach and intestines. This gel captures cholesterol from the liquids in the digestive tract. It takes low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the so-called “bad cholesterol”, and removes it from the body while leaving the HDL (high-density lipoprotein), “good cholesterol” in the body.
  2. Oats also contain antioxidants. Antioxidants bind with free-roaming oxidants that can damage cells and are thought to contribute to cancers and other illnesses.
  3. Eating oats can prevent blood sugar spikes and crashes by spreading the rise of blood sugar over a longer period of time. This helps to control glucose and insulin levels. Beta-glucan, an abundant molecule in the oats, helps to slow the rise of glucose in the blood.
  4. Oats are abundant in phytochemicals that have been shown to have an anti-cancer effect, particularly for cancers that have been on the rise in recent decades, such as colorectal, prostate, and hormone-related cancers, like ovarian cancer.
  5. Oats have been proven to reduce blood pressure when eaten on a consistent basis. Oats contain fibre, as well as calcium and potassium. Aside from the well-established cholesterol-lowering powers of fibre, calcium and potassium have also been shown to reduce blood pressure naturally.
  6. Constipation and other bowel issues can be caused by a lack of fibre in the diet. Oats, being a significant source of fibre, can help to improve bowel function and help a person to stay more regular.
  7. Oats are a great source of complex carbohydrates providing lots of energy for athletes. Because these aren’t simple sugars, like processed flour or sugar, they last longer and fuel the body more efficiently.
