Double the Power: Beta Glucan & Probiotics for Heart - Gut Health
The consumption of sufficient quantities of oat bran soluble fibers has proven to reduce cholesterol and modulate cardiovascular disease risk.
Our Beta-Glucan-Synbiotic is an ideal choice for this reason. It has the American Heart Association Seal for reducing the risk of developing CVD. And there is much more!
The word Synbiotic signifies any product that has both prebiotic and probiotic. The Beta Glucan Synbiotic has a very powerful collection of probiotic organisms and probiotics (beta Glucan is a prebiotic) that add another dimension of therapeutic efficacy.
In fact, the beta glucan fibers stimulate these probiotic organisms to produce a wide variety of healthful metabolites! In particular, Beta Glucan is loved by Bifido bacteria, causing the organism to grow and produce important metabolites such as short chain fatty acids like butyrate which tightens the GI tract tight junctions, and thereby reducing the risk of pathogens and xenotoxins leaking from the gut lumen into the systemic circulation.
In other words: Your goal is to keep that GI tract membrane as ‘tight’ as possible so less toxins enter your body.

Consumption of sufficient quantities of oat products has been shown to reduce host cholesterol and thereby modulate cardiovascular disease risk. The effects are proposed to be mediated by the gel-forming properties of oat β-glucan which modulates host bile acid and cholesterol metabolism and potentially removes intestinal cholesterol for excretion. However, the gut microbiota has emerged as a major factor regulating cholesterol metabolism in the host. Oat β-glucan has been shown to modulate the gut microbiota, particularly those bacterial species that influence host bile acid metabolism and production of short chain fatty acids, factors which are regulators of host cholesterol homeostasis. Given a significant role for the gut microbiota in cholesterol metabolism it is likely that the effects of oat β-glucan on the host are multifaceted and involve regulation of microbe-host interactions at the gut interface. Here we consider the potential for oat β-glucan to influence microbial populations in the gut with potential consequences for bile acid metabolism, reverse cholesterol transport (RCT), short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) production, bacterial metabolism of cholesterol and microbe-host signaling.
Beta Glucan Formula can protect us from developing heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, leaky gut, as well as train our front line immune system.
Suggested use: one heaping tablespoon daily in a large glass of water.
