Can Oatmeal Treat Fatty Liver Disease?

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is becoming increasingly prevalent just because we are eating too many calories and those calories don’t come with protective phytochemicals to prevent liver damage.

Whole grains, especially a bowl of oatmeal can help reduce obesity, fatty liver disease, AND reduce one’s cholesterol while you are at it. A “Power” breakfast is steel cut oats,  dark berries, walnuts, ground flaxseed with organic soy or almond milk and maybe a glass of 100% pomegranate juice to wash things down and a cup of green tea to get you to work.

Whole grains are good for you! Pay attention if you feel you may be sensitive to them. Brown rice, quinoa, millet and amaranth are the gluten-free ones. But I would try oatmeal, barley and rye even though they are gluten containing and just pay attention to see if they bother you. Barely is very high in beta-glucan, and a powerful immune potentiating substance and cholesterol lowering agent.
