Viscofiber® Impacts Weight-loss

EDMONTON, Alberta—Oat and barley beta-glucan concentrates (in Viscofiber®, Cevena Bioproducts) assist in weight loss, according to results from a recent pilot study.

Seven adult subjects with body mass index (BMI) scores between 25 and 35 were recruited for the 16-week trial. Each subject consumed 4 g/d of Viscofiber. The study demonstrated the combination of Viscofiber, a calorie-restricted diet and healthy lifestyle caused a significant loss of weight. In addition, the subjects experienced a decrease in hunger and an earlier onset of fullness when eating.

“The key for successful weight loss with a dietary supplement ingredient is promoting a healthy and sustainable loss of excess weight,” said Rod Charko, president of Cevena Bioproducts. “Viscofiber® not only helps promote weight loss, it is a pure fiber extract that also promotes healthy cholesterol and improved glycemic response.” Furthermore, the study revealed Viscofiber is distinctive compared to other fiber materials for its particular role in promoting weight loss. The study is scheduled for publication later this year.
