In the UK and the US we are constantly exposed to whole grain foods. Unfortunately we do not always choose to eat it willingly.
You probably remember when you were growing up as a child the smell of homemade bread baking in your kitchen. Or do you remember the taste of a sweet roll just hot out of the oven. More than likely they were prepared using whole grains.
For centuries we have used whole grain in our diet for food and for its nutritious qualities. Whole grains consist of all three parts that belong to the grain family. The outer coating is bran and rich in fiber, endosperm is the middle layer and the inner layer nutrient-packed germ.
When the grain is refined, both the bran and the germ are removed leaving only the endosperm, the least nutritious part of the grain. Whole grains naturally provide nutrition and health benefits that other refined grains cannot.
Nutrients are a vital part of keeping your skin healthy and grains provide the needed nutrients. Whole grains usually contain dietary fiber, several B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and foliate), minerals (iron, magnesium and selenium).
All the contents in whole grains are essential in the healing process in your skin. The ability to use grains as a healing agent is natural.
Whole grains found in breads and cereals are easily digested and possess healing factors for the skin.
Wheat grain is milled into flour, used to make breads, cookies, meat fillers, and cereals. These are the most common use of grain.

Oats are very good for energy sustaining. Barley another good grain provides vitamins and minerals used in soups helps support our immune system.
Rice a grain that used mostly in the Asian countries has found to be very healthy providing all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that our body requires. The whole grains are very instrumental in healing our body.
