Why Are Whole Grains So Good For You?

The science is in, and it comes to us as no surprise that researchers everywhere have confirmed what we knew all along:  whole grains are great for your health.  Here at Great Harvest, every day we work hard to prepare a number of delicious whole grain products.  If you're looking for the best bread in Kirkwood, and also want to know that you are making a healthy choice, please see the following list of health benefits bestowed upon us by whole grains.
  • They are full of fiber, which among other things, can help lower your cholesterol.
  • They help with digestion--not only because they contain fiber--but also because of their lactic acid content, which promotes good bacteria in the large intestine.
  • They lower blood pressure, which reduces the risk of heart disease.
  • They help regulate blood sugar, which greatly reduces the risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
  • They can help you redistribute body fat, which often times means less fat in your belly area.
  • They can help you control your weight and avoid any major weight gain.
