GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY SCRIPT

This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item

WARNING - MULTIPLE PACK PRESCRIPTION - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information

Betaglucare is the natural and healthy routine to assist in lowering blood cholesterol levels when eaten daily as part of a healthy diet low in saturated fats.

Betaglucare contains a soluble fibre from oats called beta-glucan which reduces blood cholesterol when taken daily in the required quantity of 3g as part of a healthy diet low in saturated fat.

How Does Betaglucare Work?

When the high quality beta-glucan contained in Betaglucare reaches the stomach, it dissolves and forms a gel.

This gel binds with bile acid in the small intestine, and then exits naturally.

Bile acid is produced in the liver from cholesterol. By binding to the gel,
the bile acid is not re-absorbed and as a result, the liver needs to produce new bile acid from cholesterol in the bloodstream.

Benefits

Low GI & Low Starch

  • Assists in maintaining normal blood glucose levels
  • Slow energy release – increased satiety

The best carbohydrate food to eat varies on the individual. For example, the rate at which porridge and cornflakes are broken down to glucose is different. People with type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance have become resistant to the action of insulin or cannot produce insulin rapidly enough to match the release of glucose into the blood after eating carbohydrate-containing foods. This means their blood glucose levels may rise above the normal level.

Betaglucare encapsulates carbohydrates from the meal which gives the body a chance to respond with production of insulin, and the rise in blood glucose levels is therefore less. Adding Betaglucare to a regular meal allows blood levels to be maintained at more manageable levels.

High in Fibre

  • Fibre keeps the digestive tract healthy

Soluble fibre soaks up water like a sponge, which helps to plump out the faeces and allows it to pass through the gut more easily.

It acts to slow down the rate of digestion. This slowing down effect is usually overridden by insoluble fibre, which doesn't absorb water and speeds up the time that food passes through the gut.
