Hi Kristie,

 

Yes, Nutrim provides soluble fiber from oats so it will help lower cholesterol levels just as any source of soluble fiber will.  Check out the following post to learn more.

I am using Nutrim some 4 months ago and prior to this I did try to use lowering cholesterol tablet but it only produces joint pain and muscle pain.  My muscle pain reaches 2,800 (+) and i forgot medical term for that. According to one of my doctor the regular muscle pain or function is only about 275. I already stop this medicines because according to my blood result my kidney had been damage and I also have liver enlargement during the time I used it.

Two months after I used this product my cholesterol level went down more that 50 points. My question is... Is this Nutrim can continue to damage my kidney or liver since this is a process product?

Im using this Nutrim twice a day and since my cholesterol went down I only now used it once a day because of fear that this has side effect that will worsen my kidney and liver condition.

 

Thank you,

Conrado

It's not all about dietary fiber - not all sources of fiber have been proven to

You said any source of soluable fiber will lower chol. how much would a person have to consume via their diet verses taking Nutrim supplement?

Just like the wording on the can says, nutrim "quote" ounce for ounce lowers cholesterol twic as well as plain old oatmeal. twice the volume of a few scoop's of nutrim is a very small amount and a mere fraction of the price.
