Cholesterol Reduction and Colon Health
Psyllium is an herb. Psyllium whole husks
are a dietary soluble-fiber for promoting regularity and supporting
heart health by reducting cholesterol. The husks promote easy
elimination by sweeping waste out of the colon.
Research reported in The American Journal
of Clinical Nutrition concludes that the use of soluble-fiber
cereals such as psyllium are an effective and well tolerated
part of a prudent diet for the treatment of mild to moderate
hypercholesterolemia. Research also indicates that psyllium incorporated
into food products is more effective at reducing blood glucose
response than use of a soluble fiber supplement that is separate
from the food.
Psyllium should be taken with plenty of
water. This provides an indirect benefit because most people
do not drink enough water.
Kyo-Green is powdered drink nutritional
supplement, free from preservatives.
Kyo-Green is a unique blend of the best
combination of ingredients from teh land and sea. Barley and
wheat grasses grown in the pristine Nasu Highlands in Japan and
blended with Bulgarian chlorella from natural mineral springs
and kelp from the the Northern Pacific.
The barley in Kyo-Green is a good source
of both soluble and insoluble fiber. Barley has high concentrations
of tocotrienols, compounds which act as antioxidants. These compounds
are capable of reducing serum LDL-cholesterol, one of the risk
factors in cardiovascular disease.
The chlorella in Kyo-Green cleanses the
bowel, bloodstream and liver, by supplying chlorophyll. Japanese
researchers published an article in the Japanese Journal of Nutrition
in 1975, showing that chlorella in the diet lowered both the
blood cholesterol and liver cholesterol.
The kelp in Kyo-Green provides important
minerals such as iodine for thyroid function and iron for blood
cell function. Kelp also increases metabolism and helps balance
blood lipid concentrations, both of which can help overweight
Furthermore, two teaspoons of Kyo-Green provide the nutrients
of a serving of deep green leafy vegetables.
I have a glass of water with psyllium
each morning and another glass with Kyo-Green. These supplements
help me feel better and perform better throughout the day. I
highly recommend each.
