Organic oats are also a good source of vitamin E, including tocotrienols, a component of vitamin E that helps reduce serum cholesterol by preventing the synthesis of cholesterol in the liver. Oats are gluten free and studies have shown that oats do not trigger the symptoms associated with grains that contain gluten. In North America they are often listed as being inappropriate for a gluten–free diet, but this is only out of concern that they might be contaminated by wheat during harvest and processing.
Pecans – Pecans are truly an antioxidant powerhouse, ranking as the nut highest in total antioxidant capacity, including both fat–soluble and water–soluble antioxidants and a wide range of flavanoids. Among the nuts, they have the most proanthocyanidins and also the highest level of gamma–tocopherol, a form of vitamin E (6.9 milligrams per ounce). All of their antioxidants work both singly and in concert to neutralize free radicals – those highly unstable molecules that can potentially injure cells and set up the body for disease. As a result, pecans can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and blood clots. They also provide a moderate amount of phytosterols, which help reduce serum cholesterol.
