What is GlucaChol-22™ with Oatwell™?

GlucaChol-22™ with OatWell™ is a 100% natural, concentrated oat bran powder especially high in oat beta-glucan.
GlucaChol-22™ with OatWell™ contains high concentrations of valuable beta-glucans, soluble dietary fibres, which are the active ingredients in oats that may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by reducing blood cholesterol levels.

What is oat beta-glucan?
Oats is quite simply a grass-like cereal grain. Oats have a soft kernel. The protective hull is not edible and
is removed before processing (diagram 1). The remaining oat kernel contains large quantities of protein, soluble dietary fibres (also known as oat beta-glucan) and unsaturated fatty acids, as well as several vitamins and minerals.

A: Beta-glucan

In an oat grain, these soluble dietary fibres (beta-glucan) are present naturally at a particularly high level. The beneficial properties of oats are largely attributed to the soluble fibres found in oats, which are called beta-glucan.

Oats finally became “a friend” when scientists discovered how valuable they were in helping to lower cholesterol levels. But you have to eat enough to get the benefits.

How does GlucaChol-22™ with OatWell™ differ from oats & oat bran?

The beneficial properties of oats are largely attributed to the soluble fibres found in oats, which are called beta-glucan.
As demonstrated in the picture below:
  - Oats contain 3% beta-glucan and oat bran contains 5.5%.
  - Due to a careful milling and sieving process of the oats, GlucaChol-22™ with OatWell™ contains 22% beta-glucan and is much more refined compared to oats and oat bran.
   
   

Health Benefits of GlucaChol™ with Oatwell™:

1. Healty Heart
 
Oat beta-glucan in GlucaChol-22™ with OatWell™ may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by reducing cholesterol levels, specifically LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol).
   
2. Reduced sugar level (low GI)
 
Consumption of GlucaChol-22™ with OatWell™ as part of a meal contributes to the reduction of the blood glucose rise after that meal.
   
3. Good gut feelings & healthy digestion
 
GlucaChol-22™ with OatWell™ contains soluble and insoluble dietary fibre.
  These different fibres in GlucaChol-22™ with OatWell™ oat bran powder increases stool bulking and improves stool consistency that results in healthy digestion.
