OAT+ is a product based on oat flour, rich in fibre, that provides constant and long-term energy supply, without causing any insulin peaks.
Oat flour is obtained by milling the seeds of Avena sativa, Graminaceae family. It contains mainly starch (70%), protein (17%), fat (7%) and fibre as well as vitamins and mineral salts. The protein content is high if you consider that it is 50% more than in wheat flour and contains a good acid framework. In vegan or vegetarian diets it is an excellent alternative above all for its high content of the Lysine amino acid which is normally lacking in cereals. Furthermore oat flour is high in fibre, which helps for the bowel and digestion to work correctly. Starch is digested and absorbed slowly so that the glycaemic index has no peaks and the product can be used by diabetics. The fibre portion contains a high percentage of beta-glucans, beneficial molecules for the treatment of some metabolic therapies. When beta-glucans deposit in the intestine, they trap cholesterol from food in a non-absorbable gel that crosses the bowel getting rid of the cholesterol. Its cholesterol-lowering property comes from this. Finally, oat contains nitrogenous phenolic compounds, avenanthramides, that are powerful anti-inflammatories that can protect from cancer and inhibit cell proliferation.
