STUDIES WITH MULTIBENE FOODS CONFIRM BENEFITS


Multiple Beneficial Effects and Substantial Increase of Life Span in Obese Animals

In a widely used animal model (obese Zucker rat), MultiBene food compositions effectively lower elevated serum cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, decrease obesity and remarkably increase the life-span as shown in the figures below (T. Vaskonen: Dietary combination of mineral nutrients and plant sterols Effects on serum lipids and blood pressure in experimental obesity. Doctoral dissertation. University Press, Helsinki 2002).

MultiBene increases the life-span of the obese rats by more than 50 % during a human type diet, i.e. a diet relatively high in saturated fats and salt. The average life-span in the absence of MultiBene was approximately 9.5 months, and was increased to approximately 15 months in the presence of MultiBene in the same diet.

 

IMPROVEMENT OF CHOLESTEROL LEVELS IN PATIENTS WITH MODERATELY ELEVATED SERUM CHOLESTEROL

 

MultiBene foods (yoghurt, breads, meat products) lowered serum cholesterol effectively in individuals with moderately elevated serum cholesterol (Figure 1, M. Tikkanen et al. American Journal of Cardiology 2001 Nov 15;88.1157-62.

MultiBene produces effective lowering of ”bad” LDL-cholesterol in people with moderately elevated serum cholesterol levels. Note that after discontinuation of the use of MultiBene food items, the LDL-cholesterol returns to the original high level (WASHOUT). This proves that the LDL-cholesterol lowering was produced by MultiBene, not by non-specific factors. 


Even more importantly, the ratio of the “good” HDL-cholesterol to the “bad” LDL-cholesterol was substantially, i.e. up to 25 %, increased by the MultiBene foods (Figure 6, M. Tikkanen et al. American Journal of Cardiology 2001 Nov 15;88.1157-62).
