Lower choles­terol level

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BMS INDULGE -

YOUR heart is pow­er­ful and frag­ile at the same time. It moves 2,000 gal­lons of blood, and pumps 100,000 times ev­ery day, 35 mil­lions times a year and over 2.5 bil­lion times in an aver­age life­time. Your heart is the cen­tre of ev­ery­thing you are and when it works well, it pumps blood through the ar­ter­ies, de­liv­er­ing oxy­gen and es­sen­tial nu­tri­ents to ev­ery part of your body.

De­spite ag­gres­sive health cam­paigns in the coun­try, Malaysians are still not work­ing hard enough to make a change in life­style and di­etary habits. Heart dis­ease still ranks as the No.1 killer in Malaysia and across the globe, claim­ing mil­lions of lives.

Con­trary to what people think, heart dis­ease is not a dis­ease on its own – it is a group of con­di­tions that af­fects the struc­ture and func­tion of the heart.

Ac­cord­ing to the Min­istry of Health, one in six of all deaths in govern­ment hos­pi­tals is due to heart dis­ease and two main causes of heart at­tack are hy­per­ten­sion and high blood choles­terol.

Your heart will ben­e­fit from reg­u­lar con­sump­tion of oat bran. This is be­cause oat bran con­tains beta-glu­can, a sol­u­ble fi­bre that helps dis­pel ex­ces­sive choles­terol in our di­ges­tive sys­tem from the body.

The Euro­pean Food Safety Author­ity (EFSA), which eval­u­ates the sci­en­tific ev­i­dence be­hind claims on foods, con­cluded that a cause and ef­fect re­la­tion­ship has been es­tab­lished be­tween the con­sump­tion of oat be­taglu­can and low­er­ing of blood LDL-choles­terol con­cen­tra­tions.

The panel also con­sid­ers that, to bear the choles­terol-low­er­ing claim, foods should pro­vide at least 3g of oat beta-glu­can per day.

To pro­duce sig­nif­i­cant choles­terol-low­er­ing ef­fect, a min­i­mum of 3g beta-glu­can should be con­sumed daily from oats. How­ever, to achieve that, you must eat the equiv­a­lent of two to three bowls (70g to 100 g) of pro­cessed oats each day. That amount is too much to take in a day and how many of us will have the dis­ci­pline to do it daily?

Nat­u­ral and safe way to re­duce choles­terol

Biogrow Oat BG22 is made of oat bran pow­der im­ported from Swe­den. It con­tains beta-glu­can with high molec­u­lar weight, which en­sures higher ef­fi­cacy in pro­mot­ing heart health. Its high con­cen­tra­tion and sol­u­bil­ity al­lows the for­ma­tion of a thick vis­cous gel in the in­testines.

Stud­ies have shown that high vis­cos­ity pro­duced by beta-glu­can in the in­testines is im­por­tant in the choles­terol-low­er­ing ef­fect and pos­i­tive glycemic re­sponse.

Beta-glu­can in oat bran pow­der has re­ceived world­wide ap­proval for its ef­fec­tive- ness in low­er­ing choles­terol and reg­u­lat­ing blood glu­cose lev­els.

The Malaysian Min­istry of Health has recog­nised beta-glu­can’s sig­nif­i­cant role in low­er­ing blood choles­terol and also to lower the rise of blood glu­cose pro­vided it is not con­sumed with other food.

In 1997, the US FDA (US Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion) also ap­proves the health claim, “Beta-glu­can from oat bran may re­duce the risk of heart dis­ease if it is part of a low­fat diet.”

Biogrow Oat BG22 is eas­ily sol­u­ble in wa­ter, eas­ily di­gested and ab­sorbed by the body as it con­tains higher con­cen­tra­tion of sol­u­ble fi­bre beta-glu­can in a fine pow­der form. Biogrow Oat BG22 con­tains 20% be­taglu­can. All you need is only two scoops or two sa­chets (˜ 18 g).

It is con­ve­nient to con­sume, just add one scoop or one sa­chet of Oat BG22 to one glass (250ml) of luke­warm wa­ter, stir well and drink twice daily.

Two scoops or sa­chets of Biogrow Oat BG22 pro­vide more than 3g of oat beta-glu­can. Tak­ing 3g beta-glu­can daily can help re­duce choles­terol nat­u­rally.

Don’t take your heart for granted. Get Biogrow Oat BG22 and love your heart to­day.
