Eating Oatmeal May Keep Arteries HealthyBy Health News Team • Sep 1st, 2010 • Category: Clogged Arteries, True Health News
Researchers say there’s another reason to reach for heart-healthy oatmeal for breakfast. A new study has found that a compound in oats can help keep arteries from becoming clogged.
A research team at Tufts University studied the effects of oat compounds, called avenanthramides, on arterial health.
They say that their findings suggest the avenanthramides of oats decrease the expression of inflammatory molecules that can lead to chronic inflammation and eventually a hardening of the arteries known as atherosclerosis.
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), atherosclerosis is a common disorder of the arteries. It occurs when fat, cholesterol and other substances build up in the walls of arteries and form hard structures called plaques. Eventually, the plaques can make the artery narrow and less flexible, making it harder for blood to flow. If the coronary arteries become narrow, blood flow to the heart can slow down or stop. This can cause chest pain, shortness of breath and other symptoms.
Among the ways to keep your arteries healthy are eating a low-fat diet, exercising regularly, maintaining your weight and avoiding smoking and drinking alcohol.
The study is published in the scientific journal Free Radical Biology & Medicine.
Eating oats has previously been shown to improve health and lower the risk of coronary heart disease by helping to lower cholesterol.
