World Heart Day: The daily intake of beta-glucans protects from cardiovascular disease

• Foods containing at least 1 g of beta-glucans are a help to maintain normal blood cholesterol levels. Consuming them is simple and Herbalife Nutrition counts among its range of nutritional products with Beta heart®, a powdered drink containing the OatWellTM beta-glucan.

• Beta heart® has been the base product with which Italian researchers have tested the beneficial effects of beta-glucano daily intake

A clinical trial conducted by major Italian researchers and published by the Scientific journal Nutrientsconfirms that beta-glucans* present in oats can reduce cholesterol levels in the blood.

 

The study was carried out by researchers at the Sant’Orsola-Malpighi University Hospital in Bologna, on behalf of the Nutrition Foundation in Italy, and it was attended by 83 people (48 women and 35 men). It is one of the first clinical trials of this type, performed in a population of southern Europe.

Beta-glucans are the main natural fibers found in oats and barley. It is also possible to find them in the form of a supplement, as is the case of Beta heart® from Herbalife Nutrition, a vain-flavored nutritious powdered beverage containing the OatWellTM oatmeal beta-glucan.

By including three grams of oatmeal beta-glucans in daily food intake, test participants reduced their LDL cholesterol levels (low-density lipoproteins) by an average of 12% in only four weeks, and by more than 15% after only eight weeks. Often called “bad cholesterol”, LDLs constitute most of the body’s cholesterol and, if they are high, may increase the risk of coronary disease.*

The trial, performed with Beta heart®, showed an average reduction of 6.5% in total cholesterol (LDL and HDL) after four weeks and 9% in eight weeks. Researchers also found that the cholesterol levels of the participants returned to their original levels after stopping taking Beta heart®, a sample of the importance of the daily intake of beta-glucans.

At the beginning of the trial, each participant had moderately high levels of cholesterol, low cardiovascular risk and consumed a typical Mediterranean diet. Blog sobre Supervivencia

For Andrea Bertocco, Director of Scientific Affairs of Herbalife Nutrition: “The findings of this trial reinforce the importance of beta-glucans as an effective and safe way to reduce cholesterol in people with mild to moderate levels, including relatively young patients. La World Health Organization reports that in Europe 54% of adults 25 or older have high cholesterol levels, the highest rate in the world.”

Cardiovascular diseases are, in fact, the main cause of death in the world, which has led the World Federation of the Heart to commemorate World Heart Day on 29 November, to promote actions that sensitize the population about the control of risk factors that can trigger heart disease and stroke.

♪ It has been shown that beta-glucan oats reduces cholesterol in the blood. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary disease. The beneficial effect is obtained with a 3g daily intake of beta-glucan oats. Coronary disease has multiple risk factors and the alteration of one of these risk factors may have or may not have a beneficial effect. Beta Heart does not diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
