Your diet and lifestyle can have a significant influence on your heart and overall cardiovascular system! Not taking care of your nutrition (choosing foods that are too low in fibre, too high in fat, etc.) and living an unfavourable lifestyle (too little exercise, smoking, etc.) can cause vascular damage and arteriosclerosis, which in turn damage the heart. The most common causes of vascular damage are excess weight, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels, and metabolism disorders.
Yumi Overnight Oats provide you with 24% your daily requirement of fibre.
Dietary fibre in oats (beta-glucans) binds with bad LDL cholesterol in the blood, which lowers your overall cholesterol level and helps reduce the risk of high blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases, including obesity and a narrowing of the blood vessels due to cholesterol deposits.
In addition, Yumi Overnight Oats keep you full for longer and prevent cravings, which can lead to excess weight.
Another amazing thing about oats is it’s potassium content! Potassium is considered to be important in maintaining normal blood pressure, and just one portion (55 g) of our Maple Cranberry Overnight Oats contains 197mg of potassium (that's 20% your daily requirement in potassium!)
