January is National Oatmeal Month

Do you want to begin the New Year with a new healthy habit? Then eat oatmeal as a part of your New Year’s resolution! Oatmeal is associated with lowering the risk for heart disease, lowering cholesterol, and helping to control blood sugar levels. 

Oats are also high in fiber, known as beta-glucan fiber, to help with digestion and prevent constipation. This fiber also helps to keep you full longer, which could aid in weight loss. In addition to fiber, oats are filled with vitamins and minerals such as phosphorus, magnesium, iron, folate, and thiamine. 

At Moose Pharmacy, we have a large selection of vitamins and supplements to add into your daily life. Talk with a pharmacist today about which supplements are best suited for you. Moose Pharmacy also provides comprehensive medication reviews to optimize your medication regimen and determine if there are any areas for intervention. 

Additionally, we provide one-on-one counseling services to measure your cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Through these services, we can monitor your response to medications and communicate with providers about ways to optimize your care.

Speak to a pharmacist today about ways to decrease your risk for cardiovascular disease.
