It was reported that the group ate three servings of whole grains a day with less fat accumulation around the abdomen. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure values are also more monitored. Lower blood glucose and triglyceride levels were also recorded compared to the comparison group.
The benefits are due to the whole grains that preserve the bran and the germ. They are very high in fiber and beneficial for the heart . They have edible parts by nature, which are then expelled in the refined product. Bran and germ are rich in fiber precisely because the endosperm remains intact. This contains a lot of carbohydrates and minor vitamins and minerals.
