(HealthDay News) -- Whole grains are an important part of a balanced diet and can help reduce your risk of developing some chronic diseases.

Grains are a source of fiber, several B vitamins, and minerals such as iron, magnesium and selenium, the U.S. Department of Agriculture says.

The agency mentions these possible advantages to adding more grains to your diet:
  • May reduce your risk of heart disease.
  • May reduce constipation.
  • May help you better manage your weight.
  • If fortified with folate, may help prevent neural tube defects during fetal development.
