Barley is known as one of the medicinal compounds useful for the treatment of heart patients, constipation and other digestive disorders.
Oats contain many nutrients, including vitamin E, magnesium and manganese, which promote heart health and boost the immune system.
Barley appears to be effective in lowering cholesterol in several ways. One is that, similar to chemical anti-cholesterol drugs, it interferes with the mechanism of making cholesterol in the liver and reduces cholesterol. USDA researchers at the Madison Research Center have discovered three separate compounds in oats that inhibit the liver’s ability to make LDL cholesterol. LDL is a part of cholesterol that is harmful and damages blood vessels and leads to heart attacks.
