7 Reasons to eat Gluten Free Oats

The best gluten free oats are organic and non-GMO (genetically modified organism). Genetically modified foods are banned or regulated in most of the world due to concerns about their health effects on humans. Organic foods are grown without harmful pesticides and/or herbicides because these chemicals can have a negative effect on the body, building up over the course of years to toxic levels.

That’s why we made super healthy Holy Crap Plus Gluten Free Oats with non-GMO, organic oats.

 7 reasons why to choose Gluten Free, non-GMO, organic oats:  

  1. Oats and oat bran are among the most heart-healthy foods in the world. Loaded with soluble and dietary fiber, oats are great for the digestive system and the arteries. Soluble fiber becomes a gel in the stomach and intestines. This gel captures cholesterol from the liquids in the digestive tract. It takes low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the so-called bad cholesterol, and removes it from the body, while leaving the HDL (high-density lipoprotein) in the body.
  2. Oats also contain anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants bind with free-roaming oxidants that can damage cells and are thought to contribute to cancers and other illnesses.
  3. Eating oats helps to spread the rise of blood sugar over a longer period of time, helping to prevent sugar spikes and crashes. This helps to control glucose and insulin levels. Beta-glucan, a large molecule made up of multiple sugar molecules, in the oats slows the rise of glucose in the blood.
  4. Phyto-chemicals, non-nutritive plant chemicals that have protective or disease preventative properties, are found in all vegetables and grains. Oats are no different. Phyto-chemicals have been shown to have an anti-cancerous effect, particularly for cancers that have been on the rise in recent decades, such as colo-rectal, prostate, and hormone-related cancers, like ovarian cancer.
  5. Hypertension, high blood pressure, has many causes, such as heredity, obesity, and diet. Oats have been proven to reduce blood pressure when eaten on a consistent basis. Oats contain fiber, as well as calcium and potassium. Aside from the cholesterol-lowering powers of fiber, calcium and potassium have been shown to reduce blood pressure naturally.
  6. Constipation and other bowel issues can be caused by a lack of fiber in the diet. Oats, being a significant source of fiber, can help to improve bowel function and help a person to stay more regular.
  7. Oats are a great source of complex carbohydrates providing lots of energy for athletes. Because these aren’t simple sugars, like processed flour or sugar, they last longer and fuel the body more efficiently.
At Holy Crap, we use only the finest non-GMO, organic gluten free oats. Combined with the other superfood ingredients in our Holy Crap Plus Gluten Free Oats, they help to keep the heart, the digestive tract, and the entire body healthy and happy.

  • We believe organic, non-GMO, and gluten free oats are a safe and healthy food with all the benefits listed in the article. Oats are naturally gluten free. Because oats are grown adjacent to crops that contain gluten (like wheat) and typically processed in facilities that also process grains with gluten they can become contaminated with gluten. Unless specified, oats aren’t usually gluten free due to exposure to gluten in the field (eg wheat berries carried by the wind into the oat field) or processed on equipment used to process grains with gluten.
    There are specific growers and suppliers that segregate crops and use dedicated (or cleaned) equipment in order to supply non-contaminated oats. Those oats are labelled gluten free. A certification provides the consumer with third-party confidence that these steps and more are in place by the manufacturer (and monitored by a third-party) to ensure the product is gluten free.
    Holy Crap only purchases certified gluten free, certified organic, and certified Non-GMO oatmeal for our products. And our facility is certified organic, gluten free, and non-GMO verified. Bob’s Red Mill is a reputable company, and I would feel safe consuming their oatmeal products. By the way, Certified Organic products are always non-GMO.
    I don’t know of Dr. Joel Wallach or his recommendations. It’s important for you to know what’s right for you. Go with YOUR gut feeling!

  • I had bought a couple of boxes of organic oatmeal from “Bobs Red Mill”. I hadn’t started to eat it yet, because I heard from a man named Dr. Joel Wallach of “Youngevity” that we shouldn’t eat any oatmeal at all, because it still has something in it, in spite of being organic, non-gmo and gluten-free, that is harmful to the gut. Do you believe this is true? Also, how does your oatmeal stack up to “Bobs Red Mill”.

    I’ve always liked oatmeal and would like to be able to eat it with peace of mind in knowing that it is 100% good for you!

    Can you comment on this matter?
