It may also help to reduce blood pressure and has been found especially good at lowering blood pressure during a study in the 2007 ‘European Journal of Clinical Nutrition.’ Not only can Beta-Glucans help lower cholesterol but it can also help to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and potentially boost blood sugar control for diabetics.
