Nutrim® is an oat bran fiber powder with concentrated levels of heart-healthy oat beta(ß)- glucans which have been analyzed and widely studied for decades. The Trim® line uses USDA patented technology, a mechanical (non-enzymatic) process to liberate the digestible, highly soluble matrix of nutrients locked behind the tough cell wall of grains and seeds.(1)
Beta-glucans support the body’s natural process of cholesterol control. Research shows that soluble fiber in the form of oat ß-glucans can lower serum cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood glucose levels. Oat ß-glucans lower cholesterol by binding to cholesterol-producing fats in the diet and carrying them out of the body through natural digestion before they have the chance to be absorbed.
Once cholesterol is produced, the body has a “built-in” ability to flush out excess cholesterol via bile produced by the liver. However, a large amount of the bile can be reabsorbed. Oat ß-glucans have an affinity for binding with bile and escorting it out of the body, resulting in naturally lower cholesterol.
Lastly, good bacteria (probiotics) can transform oat ß-glucans into substances that block cholesterol production in the liver. Lowering cholesterol and blood glucose levels can greatly reduce the risk of developing heart disease, and diabetes. In one study, Nutrim® was introduced in the diet of overweight men with high cholesterol, who were instructed to walk an hour a day. At the end of 8 weeks the Nutrim® group showed improved a lipid profile and body weight.(2)
Oat ß-glucans may also aid in weight management, as the fiber can help to promote feelings of fullness or satiety. This is believed to be one of the reasons why oat ß-glucans have been found to be beneficial for blood sugar metabolism.
