The benefits of whole wheat

While high consumption of refined grains is certainly linked to health problems such as obesity and inflammation, whole grains are another, consumption of whole wheat has legitimate health benefits, including lower risk of diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

1. Reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke
Researchers have concluded that heart-healthy diets should include more whole grains and less refined grains.

While most studies include all types of whole grains and make it difficult to distinguish between the benefits of individual foods, bread and whole grain cereals, as well as added sound, have been specifically associated with a lower risk of heart disease according to a study.

In addition, three compounds found in whole grains - fiber, vitamin K and antioxidants - can reduce the risk of stroke.

2. Reduces the risk of obesity
According to one study, eating three servings of whole grains a day was associated with lower BMIs and reduced belly fat in a review of 15 studies involving nearly 120,000 people.

3. Reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes
Studies have linked whole grain consumption, decreased fasting blood glucose, and improved insulin sensitivity. This could be due to magnesium. This mineral found in whole grains helps the body metabolize carbohydrates and is also linked to insulin sensitivity.

4. Improves digestion
Fiber found in whole grains can promote healthy digestion in many ways.

First, it helps to give stool volume and prevent constipation.

Second, some types of fiber in grains act as prebiotics. This means that they help nourish the healthy, healthy bacteria in the gut, which is important for digestive health.
