With the rising incidences of heart disease in Malaysia, Quaker, the World’s No. 1 Oats brand, aims to help Malaysians to take care and take charge of their heart health. Heart disease is a rising global health concern and the number 1 killer in many countries. High cholesterol is, in fact, one of the major factors that lead to the development of heart disease.

The statistics paint a dreary picture. Almost 1 in 2 Malaysians has high cholesterol according to the latest National Health and Morbidity Survey (NHMS 2015) and Institute of Public Health (IPH 2015). High cholesterol, or hypercholesterolemia, is significantly associated with obesity.

Why oats? Well studies showed that the soluble fiber found in oats that helps to reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol level or usually referred to as ‘bad’ cholesterol by biding them in our digestive tract. The daily consumption of Beta-Glucan can help lower cholesterol, which consequently reduces the risk of heart disease.
