Oats are an amazing detox superfood since they are loaded with both soluble and insoluble fibre which help keep your digestive system moving and eliminating effectively. Their high-fibre content will help to keep you satiated and also makes them a great snack or breakfast choice for diabetics since they help to regulate blood sugar. The type of fibre that is found in them is known as beta-glucan which helps neutrophils (the most abundant type of nonspecific immune cell) navigate to the site of an infection more quickly and enhance their ability to eliminate the bacteria they find there, making it a great immune-boosting food.
