High LDL cholesterol is a major factor in the development of coronary heart disease. Cholesterol is a fat like substance that builds up in the walls of your arteries when there is too much in your blood. In time this build up can lead to the hardening of the arteries which can slow the blood flow to the heart. High cholesterol can affect people of all ages, but has very few symptoms so many people are unaware their cholesterol is too high.

Each Beta Heart Bar contains 1.5g of oat beta glucans, a form of soluble fibre, which has been shown to reduce blood cholesterol*. Lowering blood cholesterol may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

Each crispy rice bar is covered in a layer of dark chocolate and is accompanied by sweet pieces of freeze dried raspberry.

So whether you are looking for a healthy alternative to your tea-time biscuits or a nutritious addition to your lunchbox then Healthspan’s delicious Beta Hear Bar provides the perfect solution.

*The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 3g of beta-glucans from oats, oat bran, barley, barley bran, or from mixtures of these beta-glucans
