Vegan as well as lactose, oatmilk is a great option for those with dietary restrictions as it is not only good for bones but also helps to lower blood cholesterol since it is packed with B Vitamins such as riboflavin (B2) and vitamin B12. It is very high in carbohydrates and provides more riboflavin or vitamin B-2 than cow's milk.
Oatmilk is a great antioxidant that keeps the skin glowing by reducing pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. Its consumption helps repair the skin from daily wear and tear, UV radiation, pollution and other adverse effects.
