Why Whole Grains Can Be Both Good And Bad For Your Digestive Health

We’ve all heard about the health benefits of a diet rich in whole grains but, as with everything else, it has a negative side to it as well. Whole Grains are not suitable for consumption by everyone. Find out if a diet of brown rice, whole-wheat bread or oats is the right food choice for you.

The Upside:

Whole Grains have health benefits which include lowering your cholesterol and improving your digestive health as they are rich in fiber. As Anderson says, ‘”If there’s one thing America lacks, it’s fiber…We need 20 to 30 grams a day and we maybe get 12.” Plus, it also gives you the feeling of a full stomach.

Downside:

However, whole grains are a complete no-no if you have gluten intolerance or celiac disease. And as we all know, too much of anything is always bad and excess consumption can lead to gas-related problems and bloating.

What You Should Do

Whenever you’re consuming a meal rich in whole grains, make sure you chew it slowly and thoroughly instead of gulping it down. This will ensure that it is properly digested. Moreover, always check your diet plan with your physician or dietician to ensure you have included the right nutrients as per your medical history.
