Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Moderation with dates is key, as they're full of sugar, however, in small amounts, they're rich in fiber, energy and sugar while aiding in issues such as constipation, anemia, need for weight gain and diarrhea. The dietary fiber helps move waste through colon, preventing the build up of LDL (bad) cholesterol. They're also rich in vitamin A and K, which protect the eyes, maintains healthy skin and metabolizes bones. As a hardy cereal grain, oats, oat bran and oatmeal contain beta-gulcan, a fiber that has beneficial effects on cholesterol levels, specifically helping to remove cholesterol from the digestive system. Additionally, avenanthramides, that are unique to oats, aid in the prevention of free radicals from damaging LDL cholesterol.
