The vitamin, mineral, and anti-oxidant content is very high. This essentially means they are one of the most nutrient-dense foods that you can eat.
Oats contain a high amount of beta-glucan. While that may not mean anything to you, it increases your gut health, makes you feel fuller (so you eat less crap throughout the day), and reduces cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
