flOATing through the countryside

This summer will be a little different for everyone. We discarded the catalogs that promise us a paradise vacation on the emerald sea topped with glittering pebbles in which we walk barefoot. Instead, we will re-explore the beauties of the native landscape and discover their flora and fauna. Because July is at the door, especially in Europe, on the way to the country, we can experience a beautiful view of the infinite fields of oats fluttering gently in the wind and reminding us that perfection is what carries peace to us.

Oats are the airiest home-grown grain, adore light, and bloom from July to August.
The Greeks and Romans knew wild oats and considered it a weed. For old naturopaths, oats were not important at all. The value was realized only in the Middle Ages.
Oats are one of the most nutritious grains, as they have twice as much fat, protein, and carbohydrates as wheat. It is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. Numerous studies show that oats have many health benefits, such as weight loss, lower blood sugar, and also reduce the risk of heart disease, which is why it should be present in your daily diet. Oats contain most of the vitamins and minerals needed for the proper functioning of the human body. It also has a beneficial effect on hair, nails, and skin.

Kitchen
Oats are very affordable food, and you can use them in several ways. In addition to oatmeal for breakfast, oats can also be used in baking cookies, bread, pancakes, and can also be added instead of breadcrumbs in meatballs, rolls, pies.
However, people who are sensitive to gluten and have a problem with uric acid should be careful when eating oats.

Health
Regular consumption of oats helps lower cholesterol as it has the most soluble fiber of all grains. Long-term research has shown that people who have high blood cholesterol levels have had their blood cholesterol reduced by 8 to 23 percent with daily consumption.
Because it contains the essential amino acid tryptophan, it has a beneficial effect on people struggling with depression, insomnia, stress, and anxiety.
One of the prime vitamins found in oats is vitamin K. Its role is to participate in blood clotting and thus reduce the risk of developing cancers of the breast, ovary, colon, and prostate.

From the old pharmacy
In 1563, Mathiolus wrote: The effect of oats: a soup prepared by soaking oatmeal is good for coughs. Eating it thickens the stool. Like juniper berries, oats also help with gallstones if heated and used to make a hot compress. There is nothing better for children in the fight against scabies than a bath with soaked oats.
Because of the benefits like soothing, cleansing, moisturizing, and many more, we put a CO2 extract of oat kernel in our daily moisturiser SOOTHE AND REPAIR to make it even more pleasant for your daily skin routines.
