For a longer life, put some porridge in the stove: Study finds breakfast bowl is good for your health

A study of almost 400,000 men and women found those who ate lots of fibre-rich foods cut their risk of dying prematurely by a fifth.

And whole grains such as oatmeal and wild and brown rice have the most benefits, along with fruit and vegetables.

Dr Yikyung Park’s U.S. researchers looked at volunteers who filled in food questionnaires in the 1990s.

Fibre reduces blood cholesterol, improves blood glucose levels, lowers blood pressure, promotes weight loss and binds to cancer-causing agents, enabling them to be excreted.

How becoming a vegetarian can CURE diabetes: Plant-based diets improve blood sugar levels, scientists claim

Dr Neal Barnard, of the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, added: ‘Plant-based diets work in a different way than “conventional” diabetes diets.

‘We now know that type 2 diabetes is caused by insulin resistance. Getting the animal fat — and fats in general — out of the diet helps repair insulin’s ability to function.’

He told the Daily Express: ‘We tell patients they can eat as much as they want – and as much whole wheat pasta, whole grains, and brown rice as they want – as long as they’re not eating ­animal products or lots of added oils.

‘The diet is simple and clear, and it’s easier than ever to follow. With a plant-based diet, we could help tackle the disease once and for all.’

He said the ‘side effects’ are beneficial, people lose weight, blood pressure improves and cholesterol levels drop.

Porridge for breakfast cuts the risk of diabetes: High fibre intake found to lower chance of Type 2 by nearly a fifth 

Good sources of cereal fibre include porridge and whole grains such as wild and brown rice.

It is well-known that people who have a high intake of dietary fibre are less likely to develop coronary heart disease, partly by improving cholesterol levels.

Previous research found high levels of fibre-rich foods cut the risk by one-fifth of dying prematurely from any cause, including heart disease and cancer.

Fibre works by reducing blood cholesterol, improving blood glucose levels, lowering blood pressure, promoting weight loss and binding to cancer-causing agents, making them more likely to be excreted by the body.

A high-fibre diet could protect against flu and colds by boosting people’s white blood cell count, study finds

Previous research has concluded that higher dietary fibre intake is associated with a lower risk of death including of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.

The following foods are a good source of dietary fibre:

  • Oat bran
  • Black beans
  • All bran breakfast cereal
  • Lentils (cooked)
  • Adzuki beans (cooked)
  • Red kidney beans (cooked)
  • Pearl barley (cooked)
  • Quinoa (cooked)
  • Oats
  • Wholemeal spaghetti (cooked)
  • Brown rice
  • Aubergine
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Linseeds
  • Raspberries
  • Granary bread
  • Dried figs
  • Almonds

Dietary fibre helps to maintain good heart health by reducing levels of cholesterol in the blood, which is considered to be a risk factor for heart disease.

Inflammation also contributes to disease and research has shown fibre may have a role to play in modulating the immune system and so reducing disease risk.

There is good evidence to show that a diet high in fibre may help to prevent Type 2 diabetes.

For those with the condition, eating a diet rich in fibre can help to balance blood sugar levels.

Fibre also helps to bulk out the diet and promote fullness that may help with weight loss, which can help with the condition.

Rice bran extract containing acylated steryl glucoside fraction decreases elevated blood LDL cholesterol level in obese Japanese men

We examined whether or not rice bran extract containing the acylated steryl glucosides (ASG) fraction decreases blood LDL cholesterol levels in obese Japanese men with high blood levels of LDL cholesterol.

It is well known that the intake of whole grains, such as brown rice (BR), improves lipid metabolism (3). Pre-germinated brown rice (PGBR) is rice which has been slightly germinated by soaking BR in water.  PGBR is being widely supplied throughout Japan.

The results of this study suggest that the intake of RB-ASG improved the blood LDL cholesterol level of humans who were obese and who had high LDL cholesterol.

Effects of ingredients of Korean brown rice cookies on attenuation of cholesterol level and oxidative stress in high-fat diet-fed mice

Our results are in line with previous studies that brown rice or pre-germinated brown rice suppressed hypercholesterolemia by stimulating bile acid synthesis via the increase of CYP7A1 [33]. γ-oryzanol in brown rice contributed to the plasma cholesterol level reduction by inhibiting cholesterol absorption [34], in addition to the enhanced fecal excretion by dietary fiber [35]. The γ-oryzanol content in brown rice is approximately 21-fold higher than that in polished rice.

Effects of the brown rice diet on visceral obesity and endothelial function: the BRAVO study

Brown rice (BR) and white rice (WR) produce different glycaemic responses and their consumption may affect the dietary management of obesity. In the present study, the effects of BR and WR on abdominal fat distribution, metabolic parameters and endothelial function were evaluated in subjects with the metabolic syndrome in a randomised cross-over fashion.

Insulin resistance and total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol levels were reduced after consumption of BR. In conclusion, consumption of BR may be beneficial, partly owing to the lowering of glycaemic response, and may protect postprandial endothelial function in subjects with the metabolic syndrome. Long-term beneficial effects of BR on metabolic parameters and endothelial function were also observed.

Greater Whole-Grain Intake Is Associated with Lower Risk of Type 2 Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease, and Weight Gain

Whole grains are defined as intact, ground, cracked, or flaked fruit of grains in which all components of the kernel, i.e., the bran, germ, and endosperm, are present in the same relative proportions as in the intact grain. Examples of whole grains include whole wheat, dark bread, oats, brown rice, rye, barley, and bulgur.

Whole-grain foods are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and lignans (21). Compared with refined grains, whole grains generally have a lower glycemic index because of their intact structure (75,76). Constituents of whole grains, including magnesium and antioxidants such as vitamin E, phytic acid, and selenium, may help to maintain glucose and insulin homeostasis (21) and reduce CVD risk (77). In addition to this rich source of phytochemicals, whole grains contain 20–50% of soluble fiber, which can lower serum cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, and apoB concentrations (78, 79). It has also been reported that the presence of undigested carbohydrates in whole grains can increase fecal weight and shorten the intestinal transit time and may reduce risk of weight gain (21).

Antioxidant Activity of γ-Oryzanol: A Complex Network of Interactions

Grains are the most common staple food consumed worldwide. Taking into account that rice (Oryza sativa L.) constitutes the principal grain in the human diet, and since it feeds over half of the world’s population, is very important to consider its constituents, such as γ-oryzanol (Orz), fiber, γ-amino butyric acid, and vitamins. Therefore, the beneficial effects attributed to brown rice (BR) consumption must consider the synergic interaction of all these bioactive constituents. The consumption of BR (unpolished) in regular meals is strongly recommended, since the polishing step to obtain white rice reduces approximately 94% of the grain’s Orz content [1].

For example, in mildly hypercholesterolemic men a daily dose of 50 mg of Orz, for 4 weeks, lowered total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and LDL/high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ratio by 6.3%, 10.5%, and 18.9%, respectively; whereas, increasing this dose to 800 mg/day did not enhance the pattern of lowering lipids [12].
