Il Beta-Glucano per Ridurre i Livelli di Colesterolo
Beta-glucans are part of a class ofpolysaccharides which are not digested, and are mainly present in bran, vein, algae, yeast and fungi. They consist mainly of D-Glucose, whose units are linked at the level ofBeta 1,3 or Beta 1,4 glycosidic. The very structure of these polysaccharides, as it is not digestible or digestible only in part, therefore influences the activitiesmetabolic, hypoglycemic, hypocholesterolemic and immunomodulatory. By managing to reach the intestines practically intact, they have a definite actiona chelating towards bad fats and sugars, facilitating their elimination through the faeces. The beneficial cholesterol, on the other hand, is absorbed more easily. The small quantities absorbed by the body, on the other hand, stimulate the immune system in a gradual and non-aggressive way, producing numerous phagocytes that have the role of collecting and eliminating many bacteria, viruses and parasites. Once absorbed, therefore, they are transformed into bioactive oligosaccharides and glycosides, valid supports against diseases and

The benefits of beta-glucans

According to recent scientific studies especially carried out in the nutritional field, it has been established that a regular intake of beta-glucans should contribute to:

  • Support and maintain high immune defenses
  • Give a sense of satiety during low-calorie diets

Cholesterol in pills

The consistency of cholesterol is similar to wax, it is whitish with a rigid crystalline structure. It is essentially aaliphatic polycyclic alcohol, with formulaC.27H.45OH. The term derives from the Greek words chole meaning bile and solid stereos, coined at the end of the 19th century. On the C3 relative to the ring A of the carbon atoms is theva il hydroxyl group OH. This is why the word ends with OLO. Molecules of cholesterol are useful to the body to create the outer layer of cells, to isolate nerve fibers, to produce steroid and sex hormones, bile acids that regulate the absorption and digestion of fats. Its quantity in human blood is established following a unit of measurement called millimoles per liter mmol / L. In normal situations, a grown man should not exceederare i 5 millimoles for each liter of blood. A higher amount can be harmful, for example, high cholesterol values can increase the risk of:
  • Arteriosclerosis
  • Angina pectoris
  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
