Randomized administration of a special diet were given to male participants. The carbohydrate, protien, fat, and cholesterol makeup of each diet were nearly identical.


The oat bran diets produced an average reduction of 13% in total cholesterol. Low density lipoproteins (LDL, or "bad cholesterol") was reduced by 14% on the oat bran diet. High density lipoproteins (HDL, or "good cholesterol") remained the same on the oat bran diet. The oat bran diets also helped remove some of the bile acids which produce cholesterol. In fact, the oat bran diet helped remove 50% more bile acids from the male participants. Removing the choleterol-producing bile acids can help keep cholesterol lower long-term. The study concluded that oat bran, high-fiber foods may be an effective treatment for patients with hypercholesterolemia.
