As stated in the product’s name, Natural 100 Percent Oats and Whey by Optimum Nutrition, combines two powerful sources of the nutrients you’ll need to fill your muscle-building and fitness requirements - oats and whey. There are other fitness supplements in the market today that combine these two ingredients, instead of just having whey. Why do you need oats in bodybuilding and fitness? There are a number of good reasons and among the best ones are weight control, energy, and general health.
People who consume oats regularly are less likely to become obese. In fact, studies show that children who eat oatmeal regularly lower their risk of becoming overweight adults by 50 percent. The soluble fiber content of oats forms a gel in your digestive system, causing you to feel full longer and eventually helping you with weight loss. The gel that forms inside you also traps bad cholesterol and helps minimize its absorption into your bloodstream.
