oat bran molecular weight and cholesterol lowering effect

The physical form of food may well be a factor in its metabolism in the gastro intestinal tract. In this study, the authors looked at the cholesterol-lowering effects of different oat bran (oat bran) preparations, differing and their peak molecular weight (MWp) of β-glucans (2348,1311,241,56, 2l or There was no correlation between the molecular weight…

Oats, bile acids, cholesterol revisited.

Nearly 40 years ago I began to study fibre and bile acids turnover. I showed the binding of bile acids to fibre and in particular the lignin element. Dave Kritchevsky and Jon Story later and independently showed the same phenomenon. Experiments with feeding wheat bran failed to show any effect of wheat branNow at regular…
