Most of us know that fiber is good for our stomach, but it turns out that there are fibers that are more useful than others. One of these fibers is β-glucan, which helps lower the level of cholesterol in the body.
Oatmeal is filled with β-glucan, gel generating fiber that sits under the shell of the oats.
