Muesli recipe for the Heart
But besides the convenience and tastiness of this recipe, muesli is excellent for the heart. Muesli is a high energy breakfast. It is excellent for the heart and the cardiovascular system:
• Stimulates blood circulation through the coronary arteries, due to the flavonoids and the phytochemical elements present in the figs and mango.
• Lowers the cholesterol level in the blood, as the fiber from oats and dried fruits reduces the intestinal absorption of cholesterol. Additionally fatty acids in nuts control its production in the liver.
• Prevents coronary spasms, due to the magnesium from nuts.
Muesli is also beneficial for:
• The nervous system, for its B-complex vitamins from oats and almonds.
• The musculoskeletal system, for its supply of energy for the muscles.
