Soluble Oat Extracts Improve Glucose Response in Hypocholesterolemic Men and Women

summary

The purpose of the study was to determine whether moderate amounts of oat beta-glucan could be incorporated into typical diets while helping patients effect risk factors associated with heart disease and diabetes. Researchers measured the impact of oat beta-glucans on blood glucose and insulin responses. Both men and women test subjects were used. Ages 38-61 qualified for the study. The participants had normal diets with moderately high cholesterol. One focus of the study was to determine whether practical levels of oat beta-glucans could be introduced and still realize any health effect. This was important since it would be pointless to prove impractical amounts of oat beta-glucan made a difference. Put another way, can people really benefit from oats using an amoutn realistic for them to eat?

methods

Seven men and sixteen women were used for the research. Participants graduated their diet from typical in week 1, to a cross-over design (week 5) which included an oat extract, containing 10% beta-glucan. Oat extracts were used in baked goods, canned fruits, juices, yogurt, puddng, meatloaf, and soups. Beta-glucan concentrated was used in the food to replace fats and carbohydrates. One group was fed a diet containing a 1% beta-glucan concentrate. While others took the 10% beta-glucan concentrate.

results

Both the male and female participants experienced lower glucose respones after taking the oat beta-glucan extract. Participants who took the 10% beta-glucan concentrate experienced the greatest difference. The study results illustrated how even modest amounts of oat extracts can be beneficial to glucose tolerance.

    "I began using Nutrim because I heard it helped with cholesterol. Each time I've gone to the doctor since I began using Nutrim, my cholesterol has gone down a few points. Before using Nutrim, my doctor said my cholesterol was close to needing management by medication. But I've never had to take medication since I began incorporating Nutrim into my diet. I just sprinkle it on my breakfast cereal and mix it in yogurt and I never even notice a taste difference."

  • My cholesterol was always in the 180s and then I hit menopause and it jumped to 244. I started on Nutrim, using it periodically but in the last 6 months got serious and dropped 30 points in 6 months. I drink it with juice- one cup of juice with one scoop per day in the morning. Only takes it once per day-I may try the chewable tablets for the second dose. I love it because it is so easy. I take it with juice, my vitamin and a banana. I swear by and now my doctor swears by it.

    --Debra R - November 2011

  • "I am new to Nutrim but like the way I can incorporate it into soup or smoothies with no change in flavor or texture. I have actually lost a few pounds because it seems to decrease my hunger. I have a high HDL (good cholesterol) and low LDL (bad cholesterol) but hope to lower total cholesterol which is a little high. Over all, I am very pleased with Nutrim and will continue to use it. The service was courteous and quick."

    Marilyn D. Whitehall, New York (2008)
