Last week we started talking about the benefits of setting attainable lifestyle goals instead of lofty resolutions that go out by the end of January. One such goal we discussed was living a more heart healthy lifestyle. Did you know there are so many ways that one little box of Mochi Barley, an often forgotten grain, can help you achieve your goal?
Let's take a look at a few of the healthy components of Mochi Barley and their effect on overall heart health...
- Beta Glucans. The beta glucan found in barley may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Did you know beta glucan is a soluble fiber which has been proven to help lower cholesterol by binding to bile acids and promptly removing them from your system. When your body goes to replenish these acids, it uses up cholesterol, which lowers your cholesterol levels.
- Soluble Fiber. What has more soluble fiber than brown rice, oatmeal, quinoa, and ordinary barley? You guessed it, Mochi Mugi Barley. Soluble fiber also may help reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and certain cancers. The FDA released, that Soluble Fiber found in Barley can help to reduce cholesterol and reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Barley’s Soluble Fiber is also known as “Beta Glucan”. While many clinical studies show that Barley’s Soluble Fiber (Beta Glucan) has a lot more health benefits, it definitely has an effect on cholesterol as FDA granted health claim.
