High Cholesterol? Beta Glucan Effect on Lipid Profile

In a recent article, Yu et al. (2022) examine the effect of Beta Glucan from oats on lipid profile. 

To be on the same page: Lipid profile - total cholesterol, total triglyceride, high density lipoprotein-cholesterol, low density lipoprotein-cholesterol. 

The researchers examined 13 trials with 927 participants for this meta analysis.  The outcome was positive and at the same time, just as our review article by Noronha et al., (2023) indicates, the quality of the oat beta glucan is important. 

What effects the lowering of cholesteraol results? The daily consistent dose, the duration of intervention, and the sourcing. Also, the severity of the heart condition effects the results. 

The effects are considered to be positive for lowering cholesterol with variation as the researchers noted. Article


Beta Glucan Synbiotic  

One heaping tablespoon provides around 5g of beta glucan.

Research and Our World: Peace

Globe_Home 3

 Johan Galtung introduced his paper on peace theories by saying: 

To write about peace thinking is to write about everything and nothing; it is neither precise nor sufficiently vague to be discarded completely as a subject of serious inquiry; the closer one approaches it the more does it recede - and it is frighteningly important. But this is in the nature of human affairs: the more important the matter, the vaguer and the more difficult becomes the thinking about it - for if it had already been conquered intellectually and mastered technically, then it would no longer have been so important because it would no longer loom so high as a problem. Some other problem would have taken its place.

Peace indeed is a difficult subject to discuss, and even tricker to research. Yet it is the core of what is important for humanity to survive and thrive.
