DIGESTION

Keep things moving

Every time you eat a bowl of oats, the oats get busy feeding your body fiber that can help keep things moving through your colons and intestines. And that’s great – because you definitely want to make sure that colon is chugging along.

Start with Oats

Age can take a toll on your digestive tract. Decreased activity, lower muscle tone and drinking less water can all slow things down. But adding fiber to your diet can help keep you regular – and oats are a good place to start. Most experts recommend eating at least 25 to 30 grams of fiber a day from grains, fruits, and vegetables to support a healthy digestive system. And one serving of oats provides four of those grams.
