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.
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.
