Better Digestive Health

Carrots for Fiber and Beta-Carotene

Oats for Soluble Fiber

  • Oats are rich in soluble fiber, specifically beta-glucan, which helps promote healthy digestion by forming a gel-like substance in the gut. This helps slow down digestion, allowing for better nutrient absorption.
