Oats are some of the healthiest of grains. Not only are they gluten free, they also contain both soluble and insoluble fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Oats are also known to help with heart health, weight loss and blood sugar. By Ayurvedic wisdom, overnight soaked Oats being demulcent and slimy in nature, could be very useful for people having a Vata type constipation ie when the stools are dry , hard and often rabbit pellet like. Always use organic, steel cut and gluten free oats. Soak them for at least 10 to 12 hours before as soaking makes whole grains easier to cook and much more easier to digest.
