Oats are known for being a breakfast and brunch stapple, but perhaps a less known fact is that they are super good for you for more reasons than just being a good food to aid weight management. It’s a great ingredient to keep your tummy full and happy and has also been proven to assist with gut health by maintaining the balance of your microbiome. In addition, as an ingredient in skincare, the oat has long been celebrated as one of the most effective at helping to maintain the balance of the skin’s natural barrier with moisturising properties helping to give you that healthy looking complexion.
