Wistar rats (ten per group) were fed either an oat-free control diet or a dietary fibre-rich test diet containing 500 g oat-based products/kg for 6 weeks. The oat-based products, containing 4-128 g/kg resistant starch, 30-92 g/kg beta-glucan and 122-304 g/kg total dietary fibre, were oat flour extrudate, flour/Novelose (commercial resistant starch) extrudate (80:20 w/w), oat bran, bran/Novelose extrudate (80:20 w/w) and autoclaved oat flour. Serum total cholesterol decreased in the groups fed flour, flour/Novelose and bran/Novelose (P<0.05). In most of the test groups, count numbers of bifidobacteria were higher (P<0.001) and of coliforms were lower (P<0.05). The mass of the caecum walls and contents was greater in groups fed Novelose- and bran-containing diets (P<0.005). In all the test groups, pH values were lower in the intestinal contents (P<0.001), and caecal concentrations of acetate (P<0.001), propionate (P<0.05), butyrate (P<0.005) and total SCFA (P<0.001) were higher. The lowest concentrations of steroids were found in rats fed the autoclaved flour. In the other test groups, more bile acids appeared in the caecal (P<0.001) and colonic contents (P<0.005), as well as in the faeces, at week 6 (P<0.001). The highest bile acid excretion was found after feeding bran-containing diets. In the intestinal contents of all the test groups, more primary bile acids (P<0.001) appeared than in the control group. The excretion of steroids increased within the experimental period. Using extrusion technology, dietary fibre-rich oat-based products, which have beneficial physiological effects in rats, can be produced. Oat flour and bran are excellent sources for the preparation of directly edible oat products. Their nutritional properties can be further improved by the addition of resistant starch.

Several regulatory bodies have approved a health claim on the cholesterol-lowering effects of oat β-glucan at levels of 3∑0 g/d. The present study aimed to test whether 1∑5 g/d β-glucan provided as ready-to-eat oat flakes was as effective in lowering cholesterol as 3∑0 g/d from oats porridge. A 6-week randomised controlled trial was conducted in eighty-seven mildly hypercholesterolaemic ( ≥ 5 mmol/l and < 7∑5 mmol/l) men and women assigned to one of three diet arms (25 % energy (E%) protein; 45 E% carbohydrate; 30 E% fat, at energy requirements for weight maintenance): (1) minimal β-glucan (control); (2) low-dose oat β-glucan (1∑5 g β-glucan; oats low - OL) or (3) higher dose oat β-glucan (3∑0 g β-glucan; oats high - OH). Changes in total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C) from baseline were assessed using a linear mixed model and repeated-measures ANOVA, adjusted for weight change. Total cholesterol reduced significantly in all groups ( - 7∑8 (sd 13∑8) %, - 7∑2 (sd 12∑4) % and - 5∑5 (sd 9∑3) % in the OH, OL and control groups), as did LDL-C ( - 8∑4 (sd 18∑5) %, - 8∑5 (sd 18∑5) % and - 5∑5 (sd 12∑4) % in the OH, OL and control groups), but between-group differences were not significant. In responders only (n 60), β-glucan groups had higher reductions in LDL-C ( - 18∑3 (sd 11∑1) % and - 18∑1 (sd 9∑2) % in the OH and OL groups) compared with controls ( - 11∑7 (sd 7∑9) %; P = 0∑044). Intakes of oat β-glucan were as effective at doses of 1∑5 g/d compared with 3 g/d when provided in different food formats that delivered similar amounts of soluble β-glucan.

This really helps me understand why I can put on more muscle lean bulking than going on the mcy Ds diet. It's no were near as gratifying to bulk with clean foods (for my pallet) but the cleaner my bulk the more strength/ mass I seem to put on. I always wondered If it was placebo, or I just didn't have the fat gain from a regular bulk so I appeared bigger.
Oats is a daily staple for a bulk or cut. Often I use a coffee grinder to grind them fine for shakes. I am also a fan of oat meal and cinnamon (cinnamon has the added GDA benefit)
I also notice a difference in energy depending on the carb source I use. This is very interesting! Thank you.

Coffee grinder gets to be a real pain after a while. If only there were some kind of blend that could just be scooped into shakes.

Also there is the texture. Most of the oats settle to the bottom when I put them in shakes. I enjoy the grittiness but it's not for everyone.

I started using oats in my shakes regularly and even postworkout about 2-3 years ago and haven't looked back.

Other than it should be available within 2 weeks?
Yes, this is a perfect preworkout or postworkout, combined with SlinSane (sale perhaps??). It will be a good all-around carb source.

Meta-analysis of the effect of beta-glucan intake on blood cholesterol and glucose levels
NUTRITION Volume: 27 Issue: 10 Pages: 1008-1016 DOI: 10.1016/j.nut.2010.11.006 Published: OCT 2011
Objective: A meta-analysis was performed on epidemiologic studies to assess the relation between beta-glucan consumption from oats and from barley on blood cholesterol level, triglyceride/triacylglycerol (TGL/TAG) level, and blood glucose level (BGL) in humans. In addition, the effect of beta-glucanon total cholesterol (TC) and BGL was translated into an empirical dose-response model.
Methods: Thirty research articles that evaluated the effect of different exposure levels of beta-glucan on blood cholesterol and BGL were analyzed, yielding 126 clinical studies.
Results: There was a significant inverse relation in TC (-0.60 mmol/L, 95% confidence interval [Cl] -0.85 to -0.34), low-density lipoprotein (-0.66 mmol/L, 95% Cl -0.96 to -0.36), and TGL/TAG (-0.04 mmol/L, 95% Cl -0.15 to 0.07) after consumption of beta-glucan. In contrast, an increase in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol was noted (0.03 mmol/L, 95% Cl -0.06 to 0.13) with the random-effect model. The analysis showed a significant change in BGL (-2.58 mmol/L, 95% Cl -3.22 to -1.84) with high heterogeneity between (I(2) = 97%) and across (tau(2) = 5.88) the studies. The fixed-effect model showed a significant change in TC, low-density lipoprotein, and BGL, whereas it showed no significant changes in high-density lipoprotein and TGL/TAG. The dose-response model showed that a 3-g/d dose of oat or barley beta-glucan was sufficient to decrease TC.
Conclusion: Consumption of 3 g/d of oat or barley beta-glucan is sufficient to decrease blood cholesterol, whereas the effect on BGL is still inconclusive, with high heterogeneity, and requires further clinical research studies with longer intervention periods.

Cholesterol-lowering effects of oat beta-glucan
NUTRITION REVIEWS Volume: 69 Issue: 6 Pages: 299-309 DOI: 10.1111/j.1753-4887.2011.00401.x Published: JUN 2011
Elevated total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels are considered major risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Oat beta-glucan, a soluble dietary fiber that is found in the endosperm cell walls of oats, has generated considerable interest due to its cholesterol-lowering properties. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a health claim for beta-glucan soluble fiber from oats for reducing plasma cholesterol levels and risk of heart disease in 1997. Similarly, in 2004 the United Kingdom Joint Health Claims Initiative (JHCI) allowed a cholesterol-lowering health claim foroat beta-glucan. The present review aims to investigate if results from more recent studies are consistent with the original conclusions reached by the FDA and JHCI. Results of this analysis show that studies conducted during the past 13 years support the suggestion that intake of oat beta-glucan at daily doses of at least 3 g may reduce plasma total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels by 5-10% in normocholesterolemic or hypercholesterolemic subjects. Studies described herein have shown that, on average, oat consumption is associated with 5% and 7% reductions in total and LDL cholesterol levels, respectively. Significant scientific agreement continues to support a relationship between oat beta-glucan and blood cholesterol levels, with newer data being consistent with earlier conclusions made by the FDA and JHCI.

Beta-glucan- or rice bran-enriched foods: a comparative crossover clinical trial on lipidic pattern in mildly hypercholesterolemic men
EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF CLINICAL NUTRITION Volume: 65 Issue: 7 Pages: 864-871 DOI: 10.1038/ejcn.2011.48 Published: JUL 2011
Background/Objectives: There has been growing interest in using dietary intervention to improve the lipid profile. This work aims at analyzing the effects and the comparison of the enrichment of a diet with beta-glucans or rice bran in mildly hypercholesterolemic men.
Subjects/Methods: The subjects initially consumed a 3-week Step 1 American Heart Association diet with rice bran-enriched foods. After this adaptation period, volunteers were randomly assigned to follow a crossover, controlled trial that consisted of two treatment with beta-glucan-or rice bran-enriched foods, each of 4 weeks, with a 3-week wash-out, like the adaptation period, between periods. Fasted blood samples were collected on days 0, 21, 49, 70 and 98 in both study arms for measuring low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol (primary outcome), total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol, triglycerides, apolipoprotein (apo) A-I, apo B and glucose levels.
Results: Twenty-four men (mean age: 50.3 +/- 5.3, mean body mass index: 24.9 +/- 1.9) completed the 14-week trial. Subjects in the 3-week adaptation period experienced significant reductions in the mean change of LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol, total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol/HDL cholesterol, apo A-I, apo A-I/apo B and glucose. During the intervention diet periods, a difference was found between treatment groups for the mean change in LDL (0.21 (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.02-0.40), P=0.033) and total cholesterol (0.34 (95% CI: 0.20-0.47), P<0.001). Other parameters evaluated were not significantly affected by the diet consumed.
Conclusions: The results of the present crossover clinical trial showed that beta-glucan-enriched foods are more effective in lowering serum LDL levels, compared with rice bran-enriched foods.

It mixes up perfectly. I use 1 scoop intra with BCAAs and then 1 scoop post with WPI.
