Blood Cholesterol Management for Heart Health
High blood cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. Clinical trials have shown that oat beta glucan helps to lower blood cholesterol, essential for the maintenance of healthy blood cholesterol levels.
Blood Glucose Management
Oat beta glucan has a low glycaemic response (reduces post-prandial glycaemic response), helps to maintain healthy blood glucose levels after the meal.
Satiety Effect for Weight Management
As a source of viscous soluble dietary fibre, it contributes feeling of fullness and satiety.
