Oat BG22 Oat Bran Powder

Biogrow® Oat BG22® – Maintaining Healthy Cholesterol & Blood Glucose Levels, the Most Natural Way

 

Biogrow® Oat BG22® oat bran powder is fully made of all natural, Swedish oat bran. It provides clinically tested, bioactive oat beta-glucan with more than 20 published clinical studies on its cholesterol-lowering and blood glucose-regulating effects.

 

The features of Biogrow® Oat BG22® oat bran powder:

  • 2-in-1 health benefits in a small and easy-to-consume serving size
  • Provide only the clinically researched bioactive oat beta-glucan with high molecular weight (2,200 kDa) for cholesterol-lowering and blood glucose-regulating effects
  • Daily serving of only 2 scoops / sachets (≈ 18 g) of Biogrow® Oat BG22® can provide the *recommended 3 g bioactive oat beta-glucan for optimal health benefits1
  • **Laboratory-tested low in GI (< 55)2, suitable for pre-diabetic and diabetic patients
  • High in fiber & protein
  • High in magnesium, iron & zinc
  • Very low in sodium, trans fat-free & lactose-free
  • Free from artificial ingredients, thickeners and fillers
  • Good solubility. The powder dissolves readily in cold or lukewarm water without the use of shaker.

 

Health claims for oat beta-glucan approved by European Food Safety Authority and Ministry of Health Malaysia:

  • 3g of oat-beta glucan daily help lower cholesterol.
  • Oat soluble fiber (beta-glucan) helps to lower the rise of blood glucose provided it is not consuming together with other food.
  • Consumption of beta-glucan form oats contributes to the reduction of the glucose rise after a meal.

 How does Biogrow® Oat BG22® work?

Studies have shown that high viscosity produced from oat beta-glucan with high molecular weight is the key determinant for its cholesterol-lowering and blood glucose-regulating effects in the human bodies*.

Lowering Cholesterol Level

  1. Oat beta-glucan is a type of soluble fiber that produces a cholesterol-lowering effect due to its high viscosity.
  2. It dissolves inside the digestive tract where it forms a thick gel in the small intestine. The viscous ‘net’ traps cholesterol and cholesterol-related particles (bile acids) and prevents them from being absorbed into the blood stream. They are then passed, harmlessly out of the body.
  3. This results in a reduction in circulating - LDL /bad - cholesterol levels.
