Are you looking to improve your overall health, achieve a much more heart-healthy lifestyle, and perhaps even see the added benefits of losing inches around your waist?  Whole wheat bread can prove to be one of the most important parts of your lifestyle's improvement efforts.  While it is always best to consume bread in moderation, there are still many key benefits to consuming whole wheat bread instead of opting for the white breads available on the market. With the inclusion of key vitamins, minerals, and important dietary fibers, the health benefits of including one or two servings of wheat bread into your daily diet cannot be disputed.

While it is rare to find a calorie free wheat bread option, the fact is that the majority of true whole wheat breads are significantly lower in calories than their white bread counterparts are.  Before you purchase a loaf of bread be sure to check not just its calorie count but also what portion of the calories are derived from carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.  Your ideal wheat bread should be high in protein and low in fat!                                 Creative Commons License photo credit: treehouse1977

Vital Nutrients
Whole wheat bread is well known to be chock full of the vital minerals and nutrients that our bodies needs in order to be in tip-top shape.  With Vitamin E, Vitamin B, Iron, Zinc, and Magnesium contained within wheat breads, the health benefits of even one single slice of wheat bread cannot be doubted.  Magnesium, for example, plays a key role in balancing the glucose and insulin within our bodies – for someone who is diabetic, or borderline diabetic – this is an incredibly important benefit.

Fiber Matters
When whole grains go through the refining process to create white bread flour, the majority of the fiber content is removed from the flour.  Wheat breads maintain their fiber levels which, in turn, make it possible for the bread to help in reducing issues with constipation while also reducing the risk of developing hemorrhoids and many colon cancers.

Low Fat – Low Cholesterol
For heart healthy conscious people, wheat bread is the best choice.  In addition to being chock full of vital nutrients that you body needs, wheat bread is also known to reduce levels of bad cholesterol that can contribute towards an increase in cardiovascular concerns.  As an option that is lower in fat, wheat breads are the better choice over high fat containing white breads.

With essential nutrients that protect your body against developing heart disease, certain cancers, and diabetes, there truly is no reason not to make whole wheat bread a part of your daily routine!  Be sure to routinely check the ingredients on the breads that you are buying in order to ensure that they are as heart healthy as possible!
