Oats Help with Constipation | Yoga of Eating

Updated: Jan 27

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.

*Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of traditional natural healing in the world. Also known as the sister of Yoga, it stresses deeply on nutrition and lifestyle for optimal health.

Ayurveda believes that there are three bio energies ie Vata ( Air and Ether Elements), Pitta ( Fire and Water ) and Kapha ( Earth and Water) within the body and their balance or imbalance determines the state of good or ill health .
