Heart Healthy Goals

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...

  1. Beta GlucansThe 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.

  2. 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.  

  3. LignansAnother component to heart and immune health, Lignans also may help protect against hormone-dependent cancers such as breast cancer. 

  4. Vitamin B3  The primary potential health benefit of B3 is a significant decrease in heart disease while helping lower bad cholesterol and raising good cholesterol in your body. 

If one of your goals is heart health it couldn't be easier to get started. Mochi Barley is an unsung hero of heart health.  And it's versatile, quick cooking (Mochi Barley cooks in 10 minutes.), loaded with other nutritional benefits and delicious.
