Get Heart Healthy with Soluble Fiber


(bright music) – [Voiceover] For good health, your body needs fiber, which you can get by eating a variety of foods like these. Fiber is generally
classified into two types: insoluble, and soluble. Within each of these types of fiber, you’ll find specific fibers that have different health benefits. Today, we’re going to
focus on soluble fiber. Soluble fiber is a type of fiber that can help you lower your
blood cholesterol level. You can find soluble fiber in many fruits, vegetables, and grains. Among foods that are a
source of soluble fiber, whole grain oats contain
a particular form, known as Beta Glucan. Scientists are still
unraveling the details, but here’s how we think Beta Glucan works to help lower cholesterol. Once whole grain oats are digested, the soluble fiber known as Beta Glucan works its way through
your digestive system along with cholesterol and nutrients from other foods that you eat. Beta Glucan from whole grain oats (bell rings) mixes with
water to form a gel. This gel works in two ways. It helps naturally remove (chimes ring) some cholesterol from the body, and also helps block
cholesterol absorption. These are only two of the many ways that soluble fiber is thought
to help lower cholesterol. Getting more soluble fiber
in your diet is easy. Here are a few tasty ways. Make whole grain cereals
that contain soluble fiber part of your breakfast routine. Slice fresh fruit over
your cereal at breakfast, and eat fruit for snacks! Switch out a slice of white bread to whole grain bread
made with rye or oats. Add veggies to sandwiches, pizza, pasta, and other entrees, salads,
and spaghetti sauce. Make soup, chili, and
enchiladas with beans. To find packaged foods
that contain soluble fiber, look on the Nutrition Facts panel. Some will list the amount
of soluble fiber here in the section under Total
Carbohydrate and Fiber. So go ahead, get your
fill of soluble fiber! We’ve talked about soluble fiber, but remember to get both types of fiber from a variety of foods to
reap all their health benefits. For more information on fiber and eating a heart-healthy diet, check out the booklet, “Destination Heart Healthy Eating,” available from your dietitian
or healthcare professional. Here’s to a happy and healthy heart!

    No longer believe in this association. They've been saying stay away from fats when it's been proven by ketogenic diet how your body does much better consuming good fats. When 4 years have been recommending a diet based on carbs but at the same time saying limit the consumption of sugar, that's the mother of all trolls. When for years they've been telling people to lower their intake of salt, a perfect scapegoat that achieves nothing. Your body needs salt to function properly, if there is excess of salt in your body you'll just pee it out, unless you have a kidney illness. No good doctor worth his salt, pun indeed, should outer this "advices" to people whose health depends on him.

    I obtained this specific cholesterol tutorial “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it) for my own Dad and he has better cholesterol readings and reduced blood pressure readings. The product is without a doubt highly recommended. As compared with many other treatments, this one provided him greater readings on his cholesterol and also have no plans of changing this remedy tutorial. .

    I acquired this particular cholesterol tutorial “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it) for my own Father and he`s got far better cholesterol level readings and lower blood pressure level readings. This really is a high-quality solution, he tried many other brands however this one provided him better cholesterol and glucose numbers, he’ll follow them from now on. .
