8. Relieves Constipation
Old people almost always have to face constipation, irregular bowel movements that are painful and difficult to pass. An easy solution for these problems is eating a small portion of oatmeal daily. As it is rich in fiber, it relieves stomach problems in people of all ages.
The current trend to combat digestion problems is the use of laxatives. Although laxatives perform their duty of clearing the digestive system well, they have a lot of unpleasant side effects like weight gain and a reduction in quality of life. Oatmeal, of course, is all-natural and has no negative side effects.
