Effect of Oats on Serum Lipids

summary

Research set out to test the serum lipid response to recommended daily inclusion of oats in an otherwise regular diet. Hypercholesterolemic adults were randomly assigned two different treatments. Participants in the intervention group were given packages of instant oats and requested to eat two servings per day (approximately two ounces dry weight), substituting the oats for other carbohydrate foods in order to maintain baseline calorie intake and keep weight stable. Serum lipids were measured in blood collected measure response periodically.

methods

Serum lipids were measured in blood at the 4th and 8th week. Oats were substituted for other cabohydrated foods in order to maintain normal caloric intake and keep a stable weight. The invervention group also reduced their total fat, saturated fat, and dietary cholesterol.

results

Average total cholesterol (TC) levels were 255 ml/dl for the intervention group. The control group average total cholesterol was 249 ml/dl. A drop in serum total cholesterol of the intervention group was lower by 15.6ml/dl on average, resulting in a score of 239ml/dl. The average difference in total cholesterol between the two groups was 12.48ml/dl. Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol was reduced by an average difference of 9.75ml/dl between the two groups.

    "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."

    Marilyn D. Whitehall, New York (2008)
