What is Cholesterol
Cholesterol is a fatty element made by the liver and distributed all over the body. It allows our bodies to make vitamin D and hormones and makes up bile acids. Our body synthize 75% of total cholesterol and 25% from food intake.
Why is high cholesterol dangerous?
Higher cholesterol levels are one of the major risk reasons for heart disease, stroke, and peripheral artery disease. The machinery involving cholesterol in the above three diseases is not different; plaque buildup within arteries reduces blood flow affecting the role of the cells and organs that the blood vessels supply.
ViTas Organic Soymilk Powder Plus Plant Sterol Help Reduce Cholesterol Effectively
ViTas Organic Soymilk has dwifunction to reduce cholesterol
a) enhance with plant sterol
b) high soy protein
1. PLANT STEROL HELP REDUCE CHOLESTEROL
Vitas Organic Soymilk Powder has enhanced with PLANT STEROL as natural ingredients help reduces blood cholesterol levels by inhibiting absorption of cholesterol produced in the small intestine either internally or through the diet. In other words, help to reduce cholesterol either generated from body and intake through diet.There are 2 common approved therories
a) Joint Precipitation of Plant Sterol and Chlesterol
Cholesterol is dissolved with other fats in the intestine lumen. However, monoglycerids are absorbed from the stomach and thereby, concentrations of non-easily absorbed substances are formed. When these substances reach a critical level, they can produce the precipitation of the solution. These happens with plant sterol and cholesterol, due to their very similar structure. Both of them, in their free form (crystalized) are very insoluble in fats and micelles, and they mutually limit solubility. For this reason, the higher phytosterols amount there is the less solubility aand perhaps the more quantity of cholesterol is precipated.
b) Fight for space in the micelles
Micelles mixes are made up of biliary salts, glycerids, phospholipids, fat acids, free cholesterol and liposoluble micronturients. They are very efficient structures that make lipids segregated by small intestine soluble. As we know, plant sterol structure is very similar to cholesterol one and thereby a "fight" for space in the miclle structure can be produced. Obviously, the most plant sterol there are, the less space in the micelle for cholesterol and as a result, the less cholesterol absorption from the stomach there is.
2. SOY PROTEIN HELP REDUCE CHOLESTEROL
ViTas Organic SoyMilk powder contains high soya protein (16%) and Soya Protein helps to reduce cholesterol. There is more and more proof that consumption of soy protein in place of animal protein lowers cholesterol level and may produce other cardiovascular benefits. Epidemiologists have long noted that Asian populations who consume soy food as a dietary staple have a lower incidence of CVD than those who consume typical western diet.
Daily soy protein consumption resulted in a 9.3% decrease in total serum cholesterol, a 12.9% decrease in LDL cholesterol, and 10.5% decrease in triglycerides.
Soy protein contains all the essential amino acids in sufficient quantities to support human life and is therefore a complete protein. Several components associated with soy protein have been implicated in the hypocholesterolemic benefits: trypsin inhibitors, phytic acid, saponins, isoflavones and fiber.
Both soy groups had significantly better blood lipid profiles (average change from baseline, 8.2% decrease in non-HDL cholesterol) than the casein group.
Trypsin inhibitors are ubiquitous in foods. All soy products are heat-treated, which destroy most of the activity of trypsin inhibitors. This would then stimulate bile acid synthesis from cholesterol and thus help to eliminate cholesterol through the gastrointestinal tract.
The hypothesis advanced is that soy foods contain both copper and phytic acid and consequently may reduce cholesterol levels by decreasing the ratio of zinc to copper.
These compounds may add to cholesterol lowering by increasing bile excretion.
Isoflavones are present in all soy flours and in concentrates and isolates produced by a water extraction process. The beneficial effects of estrogen include lower LDL cholesterol and increased HDL cholesterol. Soy protein containing isoflavones lowered cholesterol significantly more than soy protein without isoflavones in humans.
