Metabolic Syndrome is an increasingly common issue, affecting over 70 million Americans. Metabolic Syndrome is a cluster of symptoms that increase the risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes. It is made up of a combination of high blood pressure, insulin resistance, abdominal obesity, and dyslipidemia (high triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol).

Research on oat ß-glucans and the multiple aspects of Metabolic Syndrome is compelling. Studies show oat ß-glucans to have positive effects on many of the factors involved in metabolic syndrome. One animal study specifically showed Nutrim® to have a positive effect on slowing weight gain (19% reduction compared to control group), reducing blood sugar levels (32% reduction compared to control) and reducing triglycerides (39% reduction compared to control).

While more research is needed, the available data points to benefits of oat ß-glucans for multiple aspects of Metabolic Syndrome. FutureCeuticals Direct is excited to discover what future studies will unveil about the connection between oat ß-glucans and Metabolic Syndrome.
