Increases in peptide Y-Y levels following oat beta-glucan ingestion are dose-dependent in overweight adults.
Nutr Res. 2009 Oct; School of Health Sciences, University of Wollongong, Wollongong, NSW 2522, Australia.
Peptide Y-Y (PYY) is an anorexigenic hormone implicated in appetite control, and beta-glucan is a fiber known to affect appetite. We hypothesized that plasma PYY levels would increase in overweight human adults consuming increasing doses of beta-glucan. The objective was to test whether the effect could be seen with this nutrient delivered through extruded cereals containing a high beta-glucan oat bran with demonstrated high molecular weight and solubility. Fourteen subjects consumed a control meal and three cereals of varying beta-glucan concentration (between 2.2 and 5.5 g), and blood samples were collected over 4 hours. An increasing dose of beta-glucan resulted in higher levels of plasma PYY, with significant differences between groups from 2 to 4 hours post test-meal. The optimal dose of beta-glucan appears to lie between 4 and 6 g, with the effects on PYY mediated by viscosity and concentration.

Beta glucan supplement questions
Q. What is the right dosage of beta glucan supplement to be taken for months and years? Does beta glucan have side effects?
A. Long term human studies with beta glucan supplements have not been done, therefore it is difficult to say with any confidence what the long term beta glucan benefits and risks are for beta glucan supplement usage. No major beta glucan side effects have been reported in the medical literature.
Q. Is it okay to take a beta glucan supplement along with an AHCC supplement?
A. Both beta glucan and AHCC have an influence on the immune system and the consequences of their combination is difficult to predict.
