Backed by scientific evidence, the Horlicks Cardia Plus contains within it soluble fiber that is derived from wheat dextrin and corn dextrin. A diet that includes 5 to 10 g/d of viscous soluble fiber reduces cardiovascular disease (CVD) events and death independent of baseline risk. In fact, consuming foods rich in viscous soluble fiber reduces low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (bad cholesterol) blood levels 10% to 15% with expected reduction in heart disease by 10% to 15%.
Soluble fiber has been shown from clinical and scientific studies to reduce blood cholesterol levels, reduce blood sugar spikes and to improve overall health. It is regarded as a super food when it comes to maintaining good heart health.
In addition, a healthy diet that is rich in fiber can promote normal bowel motions and reduce abdominal bloating. Cardia plus contains Nutriose and Fibersol-2. These are highly soluble fibers that are derived from wheat and corn. These are highly edible and do not cause bloating or gastric trouble like certain supplements can do.
Horlicks cardia plus is available in a delicious vanilla flavor.
