 We here at Great Harvest in Newtonville fresh mill our own whole wheat flour every morning in order to bake our bread. Why do we do this? Well, not only do we think fresh whole wheat flour makes for the tastiest bread, but it also brings the many brilliant health benefits of whole grains such as the following.

They reduce risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes

Eating whole grains has been demonstrated to lower levels of bad cholesterol in the bloodstream, help lower pressure, control insulin response, and control blood sugar levels. All of these contribute to a reduced risk of cardiovascular issues and reduced likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes.

They keep you full and help control weight

Whole grains are a great source of fiber, which is tough to digest and so keeps you full for a long time. They’re also complex carbohydrates, meaning they release glucose slowly over time and provide stable energy supplies through the day. This is especially great for those looking to control their weight.

They can help reduce inflammation

Whole grains have been linked with reduced inflammation, which can help recovery from sports injuries and lessen the symptoms of allergic reactions and asthmatic attacks.

They’re rich in protein, vitamins and minerals

Whole grains are far richer in vitamins and minerals than their refined counterparts. Whole wheat bread, for example, is a great source of B vitamins, iron, potassium and magnesium. Whole grains are also a much better protein source, and protein is vital for developing muscles and growing new cells throughout the body.
