Oats for your immune system

Have you eaten your oats today? These grains are immune boosters, rich in B vitamins (stress reliever), E, folate, magnesium, selenium, zinc, and more. They contain flavonoids that help break down cholesterol and are thought to prevent cancer, particularly colon cancer. They are well-known for their high fiber content, but did you know that the silica in them is anti-inflammatory and can help soothe the digestive tract? And, as a bonus, they can help in weight loss as their energy is slowly released, keeping you full longer and staving off hunger pangs.
And, if you are suffering from the itchiness of eczema, psoriasis, Chicken Pox, bug bites, or other, you can tie a muslin bag of oats over the tap when you run a bath. Soaking in that bath will bring you relief.
