Australian scientists conducted a series of studies, during which they found out that frequent consumption of oatmeal can harm the body.
It turns out that too much oatmeal in the diet can lead to the destruction of bone tissue. It’s all about the high content of phytic acid in oatmeal.
This substance interferes with the normal absorption of calcium by the body, which is washed out of the bones and not absorbed by the intestines at the proper level. This problem cannot be solved even by the use of various dietary supplements.
A lack of calcium can cause a person’s bones to become more brittle and therefore prone to frequent fractures and cracks.
However, you should not completely abandon oatmeal: it normalizes the work of the stomach and the cardiovascular system. Oatmeal is also able to effectively strengthen the immune system.
In order for oatmeal to bring only benefits to the body, you just need to use it correctly. Scientists recommend eating oatmeal for 14 days, then taking a two-week break. At the end of this period, porridge can be returned to the menu. With such a diet, oatmeal will only bring you benefits and health.
