Effect of polydextrose on lowering blood fat
Dietary fiber has special physiological functions, and studies have shown that dietary fiber can promote normal excretion of the human body. Reduce the incidence of certain cancers, cardiovascular networks and diabetes spasms. Many common diseases, such as atherosclerosis, hypertension, coronary heart disease, constipation, obesity, and cancer, are associated with inadequate intake of dietary fiber. Many studies have demonstrated that high serum cholesterol is an important factor in coronary heart disease, and it has also been shown that lowering serum total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol can reduce the incidence of coronary heart disease.
Polydextrose is an arbitrarily bonded glucose polymer containing a small amount of sorbitol and citric acid. Polydextrose is a water-soluble dietary fiber widely used in the food industry, especially health foods, sugar substitutes, and fat substitutes. Studying the role of polydextrose to reduce blood lipids is of great significance in preventing the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases.
Dietary fiber is a kind of polysaccharide that is not absorbed by the body and has chelation of cholic acid and cholesterol as well as trace elements. Polydextrose is a glucose polymer linked by any bond and belongs to soluble cellulose. Through the determination of serum and liver tissue total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol in experimental animals, it was found that the intake of polydextrose decreased the levels of total cholesterol and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol in hamsters. Without affecting high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, it is speculated that it may be beneficial for chelation with cholesterol, especially non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, which may cause hyperlipidemia, thereby reducing its potential for collective use. An effective functional nutrient for the prevention or treatment of hyperlipidemia.
