Water soluble fibers found in dried peas may have potential effects in reduced risk of hypercholesterolemia, a joint universities study suggested.
Dried pea is a small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family, genus Pisum belongings to the family Fabaceae with healthy source of proteins, fibers, vitamins and minerals.
Hypercholesterolemia is a condition characterized by abnormal high of total cholesterol in the blood stream.
According to study led by the University of California, dietary soluble fibers intake found in dried peas and other sources has been associated with health benefits in reduced lipid levels and other ailments.
In the review studies of literature published and related to the hypocholesterolemic effects of dietary soluble fibers and fiber-rich foods, researchers showed that
1. Daily consumption of water-soluble, viscous-forming fibers can reduce total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels by about 5-10 %;
2. Observation of effect of dietary water soluble also expressed some minimal changes high-density lipoprotein cholesterol or triglyceride levels.
3. Types of soluble fiber and phytochemicals presented in the food also exerted different effects in cholesterol-lowering activities with medium to high molecular weight fibers were more effective.
Furthermore, in the 68 hyperlipidemic adults consumed a test (high-fiber) and a control low-fat (25% of energy), low-cholesterol (<150 mg/d) diet for 1 mo each, randomized crossover study with high-fiber diet included 4 servings/d of foods containing beta-glucan or psyllium that delivered 8 g/d more soluble fiber than in the control diet, researchers showed that high fibers dietary group expressed a reduced total cholestero, total:HDL cholesterol, LDL:HDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein B:A-I in compared to control.
Also in comparison of both diets, there were no significant differences in palatability or gastrointestinal symptoms.
2. Dietary also has a profound effect in influence of the accessibility of nutrients by digestive enzymes, thus delaying digestion and absorption.
3. the consumption of legumes, vegetables, and fruits--rich in water-soluble fiber--should be particularly encouraged i healthy and diabetics.
