Natural cholestorol lowering

Product description

Barley can reduce cholesterol levels, for it contains so-called beta-glucane. This is soluble roughage (dietary fibre) and occurs naturally in barley.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has recognised  that the regular ingestion of beta-glucane from barley demonstrably reduces cholesterol levels in the blood. Lowering the cholesterol count can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease (coronary vessels). The positive effect on the cholesterol level can be experienced following daily ingestion of three grams of beta-glucane from barley. This quantity can be ingested with just 5 to 6 tablespoons of beta-barley flakes (approx. 50 grams).

VITAGLUCAN® by Zwicky is a product line consisting of flakes, a crunchy mixture, muesli and bread mixes. Their regular consumption naturally enhances health and can easily be included as part of an everyday diet. For the careful production of its VITAGLUCAN® products, Schweizerische Schälmühle E. Zwicky AG uses a new variety of barley which contains a particularly high proportion of beta-glucan and does not involve genetic modification in its cultivation.
