Concentrated Oat Beta-Glucans Lower Serum Cholesterol in Adults


The research study investigated the physiological effects of concentrated beta-glucans on cardiovascular disease in human subjects. Beta-glucans were compared with inulin (a form of soluble fiber) and guar gum (water-solube fiber from guar bean). Intestinal fermentability was measured in a model to test whether beta-glucans produced a higher butyrate, or waste product of fiber to aide in healthy colon production.

75 hypercholesterolemic men and women were assigned two treatments. The treatments were assigned randomly. The participants received either 6 grams of concentrated oats per day, or 6 grams of dextrose. The dextrose recipients were a control group (i.e. not given an actual treatment to measure a meaningful difference). During the treatment blood samples were taken at the 3rd and 6th weeks. At each blood test total cholesterol, HDL (high density lipoproteins), LDL (low density lipoproteins), triglycerides, glucose, insulin were measured.


Six grams of concentrated oat beta-glucans per day reduced total and LDL cholesterol over 6 weeks. Oat beta-glucans created a significant reduction in total cholesterol. 11ml/dl was the total cholesterol reduction. In addition, LDL cholesterol was reduced by 11ml/ld. The LDL cholesterol reduction was significantly greater than the untreated group (control).

    "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.

  • "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."
