Beta heart is a nutritious vanilla-flavoured powder that contains the key ingredient oat beta-glucan. Oat beta glucan has been shown to lower/reduce blood cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. Beta-glucans contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.*
1 scoop of Beta heart provides
- 1.5g Oat Beta-Glucans
- 3g Fibre
- 25 kcal
- 0g Sugar
The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 3g of oat beta-glucan.
Whatever your age, lifestyle factors can play a big part in raising your cholesterol. Take control of your health in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Eat well
Reduce your intake of trans and saturated fats with simple food swaps:
- Wholegrains over white bread/pasta.
- Oily fish or lean poultry over processed or red meat.
- Nuts, seeds or soy beans over ready-to-eat snacks like crisps.
Step 2: Get active
Being active helps to increase the good cholesterol (HDL) in your blood. It stimulates the movement of fatty deposits to the liver, which helps to keep the heart and blood vessels in good condition. 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week is all you need (30 minutes, 5 days per week).
Step 3: Boost your diet
High in fibre and a source of protein, one serving of Beta heart also provides 1.5g beta-glucans; a soluble fibre found in the oat bran from oats, which helps to lower or maintain your cholesterol.
Add 1 or 2 scoops of Beta heart powder to a glass of water or fruit juice, or mix it with your favourite Formula 1 shake to create a healthy breakfast, lunch or dinner.
