Oats consumption make bones stronger

Oats are a great way to get whole grains. Gram for gram, all whole oat products provide the same whole grain benefits.

It is known that oats as a vital source of B-complex vitamins, fat, soluble fiber β-glucan and also contains macronutrients and minerals such as protein, magnesium, zinc, and iron which are important for bone health.

In fact, the presence of copper, zinc and magnesium means that human bones are better able to absorb calcium, leading to even better bone health.

A balanced diet including calcium is needed to keep human bones healthy and to prevent fractures. Human bodies use calcium continuously, so we must replace it regularly via diet. Adults with Osteoporosis need up to 1000mg a day.

Magnesium is also important for healthy bones. Magnesium helps human body absorb and retain calcium to help build and strengthen bones and prevent osteoporosis. People with higher intakes of magnesium have a higher bone mineral density.

Consuming foods rich in vitamin B complex may help to prevent bone loss. Animal studies have shown that a deficiency in folic acid and Vitamins B6 and B12 can lead to increased levels of homocysteine and, consequently, an increased production of free radicals and oxidative stress, which lead to endothelial dysfunction, decreased bone blood flow and, eventually, osteoporosis.
