Vita-Aid™ Oat Beta-Glucan
Product Code: 0500-0182
A diet abundant in dietary fibre has been linked to a reduced risk of many diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Therefore, dietary fibre can be considered an essential component in a health-promoting diet.
Oat Beta-Glucan can be an effective dietary fibre when added to foods because of its proven health benefits.
Vita-Aid™ Oat Beta-Glucan with OatWell™ proven to reduce cholesterol.
As Vita-Aid™ Oat Beta-Glucan with OatWell enters the stomach and the intestine the fibres form a net that captures cholesterol-related particles so that they are not absorbed into the bloodstream. This trapped cholesterol is harmlessly passed out of the body. This means there is less cholesterol in the blood vessels. Less cholesterol means lower cholesterol levels. Lower cholesterol levels mean a healthier heart.
A healthy heart is just one benefit of taking OatWell Oat Beta-Glucan. OatWell Oat Beta-Glucan also helps in controlling glucose levels. That net formed by Oat Beta-Glucan also slows down digestion and the uptake of carbohydrates into the bloodstream, resulting in better glucose control.
OatWell Beta-Glucan promotes gut health by acting as a sponge. Soaking up many times its own weight in fluids. Oat Well is a pre-biotic, helping to keep your gut healthy by keeping you regular.
OatWell Beta-Glucan helps with weight control. The net formed by beta-glucan fools the gut by making it think it is fuller than it actually is. Resulting in a reduced desire to eat.
All these benefits are in every gram of Beta-Glucan:
- Glucose Control
- Gut Health
- Weight Management
