Five ways whole grains can change your life:
1. Heart health
- Heart-healthy diets rich in whole grain foods can reduce the risk of heart disease.
2. Reduce cancer risk
- Low fat diets rich in fiber-containing grain products, fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of some types of cancer, particularly of the stomach and colon.
3. Manage diabetes
- The American Diabetes Association recommends whole grain as part of a diabetic diet.
4. Keep you regular
- Fiber from whole grains promotes regularity and keeps the intestines working smoothly to help
maintain good digestive health.
5. Weight management
- A growing body of evidence supports that people who eat more whole grain tend to have healthier body weights and gain less weight over time than those who don’t.
