Oat drink helps reduce bad cholesterol and promotes health for the body
The oat drink is a healthy alternative to cow’s milk and can be included in many recipes. The benefits of oats are numerous, as the ingredient is rich in fiber and vitamins that help balance blood sugar levels and strengthen the immune system. It is also responsible for improving the intestinal flora, which leads to bowel regulation and prevents constipation. In addition to having a lower fat content in its composition, cereal milk stimulates the cleaning of blood vessels and reduces the percentage of bad cholesterol in the body.
Peanut butter is rich in protein and healthy fats that strengthen muscles
Despite the amount of calories it has, peanut butter is a great option to satiate hunger and strengthen muscles. The food reduces fatigue, stimulates muscle contractions during physical training and prevents cramps and injuries. This is because peanuts are naturally a nutritious food (although it is recommended not to consume them in excess) and carry good amounts of vitamins and minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. The ingredient also has antioxidant actions and proteins that stimulate the proper functioning of cells. It’s just important to be careful, as peanuts are often an allergenic food!
Coconut sugar has a low glycemic index and regulates blood pressure
Unlike the most popularly consumed sugars, coconut sugar is a healthier option for recipe preparation. Despite not having the same benefits as coconut (because it is derived from the palm tree and not directly from the fruit), the food is very nutritious and offers benefits to the body. In its composition, you can find B-complex vitamins, which improve gastrointestinal health, promote metabolism and produce energy for the body. It is also a great immune system booster as it is a source of minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium and zinc. Finally, it helps to reduce blood glucose levels due to its low glycemic index and helps to regulate blood pressure.
