Betaglucare offers Scandinavian Oats Rich in Beta-glucan
A self-care product for managing cholesterol and blood glucose levels, supported by extensive clinical science
What is beta-glucan? Beta-glucan reduces your LDL cholesterol and blood glucose levels after meals, when eaten daily. Betaglucare products are made from high quality Scandinavian oats, rich in beta glucan.
Each box contains 28 daily sachets. *Each sachet contains 3 grams of beta-glucan, the amount proven to reduce cholesterol when eaten daily combined with a diet low in saturated fat. **Betaglucare also reduces blood glucose levels after meals when 4 grams of beta-glucan is eaten along with 30-80 grams of carbohydrates.

Why Betaglucare and not regular Oats?
There are two reasons why not just any oats.
First, Betaglucare contains 3 grams of beta-glucan in each daily portion sachet. The average serve of oats you buy off the shelf is between 1.2g to 1.8g of beta-glucan per serve so you would need to consume two to three bowls in the one meal.
The second reason is that the oats are grown in Sweden and other Scandinavian countries. They can grow varieties that are unique to their climatic conditions that we cannot grow here.
The beta-glucan in these varieties is up to 6 times higher in molecular weight than regular oats and this means it forms a much thicker gel in the gut.
It’s this thickness or viscosity that makes it more effective in binding with bile acid and reducing cholesterol. This same viscous gel creates a layer on the intestinal wall to delay the uptake of carbohydrates resulting in a lowered blood glucose curve after meals.
Please refer to studies on the healthcare professional page of our website including studies that state high molecular weight beta-glucans can mean up 50% to 100% greater reduction.
