Oat bran contains B complex vitamins, protein, fat, minerals, and heart healthy soluble fiber. When eaten regularly, oatmeal and oat bran may help to lower total cholesterol levels by 25 or more within a very short time period (one to three months). In addition, oat bran can help to reduce the bad LDL and raise levels of good HDL cholesterol.

 

Oat bran is rich in a soluble fiber called beta-glucan. Oat bran is the first food allowed by the FDA to be registered as the first cholesterol-reducing food at an amount providing 3 grams of beta-glucan per day, although some evidence suggests this level may not be high enough to make a significant difference.

Oat bran also helps stabilize your blood sugar levels, keeps you full longer, and increases your metabolism.
