Mga biyayang pangkalusugan ng oatmeal

Ang pagiging malusog daw ay hindi muraKasabihan nga, “Health is wealth.  But health needs wealth”.   Mahirap mapanatiling malusog ang ating katawan nang walang gastos.  Ngunit marami pa rin namang  paraan upang makapag ehersisyo at kumain nang tama sa karampatang halaga.

Halimbawa, ang paglalakad sa parke o sa mall ay isang uri ng ehersisyo na walang gastos. Sa pagkain naman, marami ring masusustansiyang pagkain na mura at nagbibigay ng maraming benepisyo sa ating katawanIsa na dito ang  oatmeal.

Ang oatmeal ay isa sa mga “wonder foods” na nagbibigay ng sustansiya at maraming benipisyo sa ating katawan. Ang oatmeal ay epektibo sa pagpapababa ng risk of cardiovascular disease o sakit sa puso sa pamamagitan  ng pagbaba ng bad cholesterol sa ating katawanMainam din itong remedyo sa mga taong constipated dahil ito ay may mataas na fiber content na tumutulong upang maging regular ang ating pagdumiNakatutulong din ito upang maiwasan ang panganib  ng  pagkakaroon ng cancer lalo na sa gastro intestinal tract.

Ayon kay Dr. Rodolfo F. Florentino, chairman ng Nutrition Foundation of the Philippines at dating direktor ng Food and Nutrition Research Institute, ang oatmeal ay  nagtataglay ng mataas na uri ng carbohydrate at fiber na kailangan ng ating katawan sa ating pang-araw-araw na gawainAyon pa kay Dr. Florentino, ang oatmeal ay may mas maraming protina kaysa sa mais, bigas, at trigo (wheat) kung kaya’t inirerekomenda ito sa mga body builders na nais magpalaki ng muscles. Ang oatmeal ay mayaman din sa minerals tulad ng manganese, selenium, magnesium, zinc, at copper.

Ayon pa rin kay Dr. Florentino, ang pagkain ng oatmeal araw-araw kasabay ng pagkunsumo ng maraming prutas at gulay, at pagiwas sa  mga pagkaing may saturated fats o sobrang matataba ay epektibong paraan upang bumaba ang bad cholesterol sa ating katawan at maiwasan ang panganib na magkaroon ng cardiovascular disease tulad ng coronary heart disease at stroke.

Ang fiber sa oatmeal ay parang maliit na sponge na sumisipsip ng sobrang cholesterol at inilalabas ito sa ating katawan. Idinagdag pa ni Dr. Florentino na ang oatmeal ay epektibo sa pagpababa ng blood pressure at blood sugar.  Ang soluble fiber na taglay nito ay  nakakatulong upang maantala  ang  pagtaas ng blood sugar level at inilalabas ang glucose sa ating dugo pagkatapos kumainKaya mainam ito para sa may mataas na blood pressure at sa may diabetes.

Ayon pa rin kay Dr. Florentino, ang oatmeal ay mabuting pangpapayat dahil sa taglay na fiber nitoMadali itong makapagpabusog dahil sa sinasabing “feeling of satiety” na madaling maramdamanSubalit, ang oatmeal ay mataas sa uric acid kung kaya’t bawal ito sa mga taong may gout at arthritis

Napakaraming benepisyo ang dulot ng oatmeal kaya maaari itong kainin anumang oras araw-araw. Upang hindi magsawa at para sa karagdagang sustansiya, maaari itong dagdagan ng prutas, low fat milk o nuts.  

Para sa masaya at malusog na pamumuhay, sundin natin ang mga tagubilin sa Nutritional Guidelines No. 1 “Kumain ng iba’t-ibang uri ng pagkain”, at sa Nutritional Guidelines for Filipinos No. 10 “Mag ehersisyo nang  regular, huwag manigarilyo, at iwasang uminom ng alak
