Reduces LDL Cholesterol

I have been taking Betaglucare for a couple of years and my cholesterol has gone from 6.0 to 3.8 and stayed there. Would recommend taking betaglucare to anyone wanting a healthy way to reduce your cholesterol.

I was told my bad (LDL) cholesterol was a little high at 3.8 and total cholesterol 6.0. I had one sachet of Betaglucare with my breakfast of fruit and yogurt. I didn’t change anything else in my diet or lifestyle in this time. 9 months later and I had lowered my LDL cholesterol to 3.1 and total cholesterol to 5.1 which is back in the safe range!

In 6 months my blood sugar levels went from 7.9 to 6.3. The only thing I did differently was to have the Betaglucare hearts for breakfast every day. My doctor could not believe it was just by having Betaglucare every day as I have struggled to keep my levels down.

How it Works

Cholesterol

When you eat Betaglucare the beta-glucan forms a thick gel in the gut which binds with bile acid. Bile acid contains LDL cholesterol, or the ‘bad’ cholesterol.

By binding with bile, the cholesterol re-absorption is reduced thereby reducing LDL blood cholesterol levels. Additionally, the liver then needs to produce replacement bile acid by sourcing LDL cholesterol from the blood stream.

Blood Glucose

When Betaglucare reaches the stomach it forms a viscous gel. This gel forms a thin layer inside the small intestine which slows down the uptake of carbohydrates. This leads to lower postprandial blood glucose and lower blood insulin after eating.

What does it contain?

Betaglucare contains a high concentration of beta-glucan, which is a soluble fibre derived from Scandinavian oats. The unique growing climate in the Scandinavian countries produces oats that are rich in high quality beta-glucan. Betaglucare also contains non GMO cornflour and fructose from apple. Oats contain a form of gluten called Avenin.

What are the health benefits from an improved diet?

For the reduction of LDL cholesterol we know that not only the amount of beta-glucan needs to be 3g, but also the molecular weight is important. This provides an explanation for why some studies on processed beta-glucan did not show efficacy, and also why barley beta-glucan is slightly less effective.

How do I eat Betaglucare?

In order to effect a reduction in LDL cholesterol, you must consume at least 3 grams of beta-glucan per day, the same quantity contained in each daily portion sachet of Betaglucare.

To reduce postprandial blood glucose levels, 4 grams of beta-glucan is required to be consumed along with 30 – 80 grams of carbohydrates. The recipes under the Blood glucose management heading on the recipes tab contain the required quantities of beta-glucan and carbohydrates.

Simply add Betaglucare Crispy Oat Hearts to your breakfast cereal, muesli or with yoghurt as part of your daily routine. Alternatively, the mild oat flavour means you can even eat it on its own.

The powder has a mild oat flavour which is easy to add to your favourite smoothie. You can also mix it in with a fresh juice or sprinkle it onto your breakfast cereal. It’s ideal to have with lunch or dinner to reduce blood glucose levels after meals.

Does Betaglucare replace medication?

No, but it is an excellent complement to medication.

If your patients are looking for a natural way to reduce cholesterol rather than going onto medication, Betaglucare can be included as part of a healthy diet low in saturated fats.

If your patients are looking for a natural way to manage blood glucose levels after meals, Betaglucare can be recommended to use at any meal occasion. For example the hearts can be used for breakfast while the powder can be also used for lunch or dinner as a smoothie with a meal.

What are the costs?

About the same as an apple a day, or about $1.35.

Oats versus Betaglucare - what's the difference?

The higher quality of the oat, the thicker the gel becomes. It's this viscosity or thickness of the gel that influences the effect. The gel binds with bile acid in the small intestine. This has the effect of reducing cholesterol. The gel creates a layer on the intestinal wall to delay the uptake of carbohydrates. The result is a lowered boood glucose curve after meals.

Breakfast Oats

Betaglucare

**Betaglucare also reduces blood glucose levels after meals when 4 grams of beta-glucan is eaten along with 30-80 grams of carbohydrates.

  • 100% pure oat bran from Scandinavian oats
  • Because of varieties of oats they can grow under there climatic conditions the beta-glucan itself is of a very high quality


 

  • This high quality means the beta-glucan is high in molecular weight – up to 6 times higher than regular oats
  • This high molecular weight means reductions in cholesterol 50% to 100% greater than regular oats that are low in molecular weight
  • One sachet of Betaglucare has as much beta-glucan as up to 3 bowls of regular oats without the carbohydrates


 

  • The only beta-glucan product in Australia with the claim for reducing blood glucose level after meals
  • Both products work the same way in reducing cholesterol and blood glucose levels after meals, just two different ways of consuming it
  • Both claims supported by clinical evidence and recommended by healthcare professionals
