A new beta biohydroxybutyrine may help you grow older, and its bioactive ingredient, beta hydrooxybutyrates, could also help prevent heart attacks and strokes, according to a new study.
A team of researchers from McMaster University, University of Michigan and the University of Ottawa analyzed data from nearly 1,000 people who took the beta hydroroxybutynitrite test, a test that measures the level of the chemical that causes the body to secrete adrenaline and other hormones.
Researchers found that beta hydrozybutyrines (beta-OHB) are found in foods, including some foods that have been eaten for centuries.
The team found that consuming foods that were high in beta-OHBs from fruits, vegetables, nuts and other plants could lower the risk of heart attacks or strokes.
“If we can lower the level that these people had, that’s the next step,” said Dr. David B. Hines, a professor in the department of medicine at McMaster and lead author of the study.
“If we lower the beta-ohb levels, that would be a really good thing.”
The beta-hydroxy butyrate is the most common form of beta-oxygen, the molecule that makes oxygen.
It’s found in many foods, and it’s often found in supplements.
However, the researchers say the beta hydroxybutys are also found in some supplements and supplements may not contain enough beta hydrohydroxy.
“The problem is, there’s a lot of confusion about what’s good for you,” said Hines.
“We’ve got this really interesting compound that’s found naturally in many fruits and vegetables, but we’re not really sure how it’s going to affect your heart health or your longevity.”
The research team says they believe the betahydroxy might help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease and other heart conditions.
They say it might also help slow the rate at which the body produces cholesterol and triglycerides, which can lead to heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Hines said they don’t know how many people are taking beta hydrolyzed beta-Hydroxybutyros, but the company, BioMed Laboratories, has tested thousands of people in their lab and found no difference in their blood pressure or cholesterol levels.
The new study is the first to look at beta hydrocyanic acid (bHCA), which is a derivative of beta hydrobutyrin that’s also found naturally as a supplement.
This research was done on mice and human volunteers.
Beta hydrocyinic acid is also found as a compound in a variety of foods, but this research is the only one that looked at how beta-HCA affects heart health.
Hinemann and his colleagues say beta-HA can also be found in a wide range of supplements, but they didn’t want to include supplements that have not been tested in humans.
“A lot of the research that’s done is on animals,” Hinemann said.
“But the research is on rats, so we don’t have the data for humans yet.
We want to do a lot more research with humans before we start to look for any benefit from beta hydro cyanic acid.”
According to the study, beta-HYB is a precursor of a hormone called β-hydroxymethylcobalamin (BHMC), which can help slow down the rate of the heart’s production of cholesterol and fat.
In addition, beta Hydroxybutynite (beta)HBC can help lower cholesterol levels, BHMC can help reduce triglycerides and cholesterol levels can lower levels of inflammation in the arteries, the study authors write.”BHSC is associated with both a decrease in plaque size and an increase in blood flow,” Hines said.
“So this is a way of reducing inflammation in a way that’s really important to heart health.”
Hineman said the findings support the idea that beta-hyb has a role in maintaining healthy blood flow in the body.
“Beta hydroxy-butyric acid has an effect on the levels of BHSC in the blood, and that is really good news because BHBC has been associated with cardiovascular disease,” Hins said.
The study also says beta-HBAs might help slow atherosclerosis, the buildup of fatty plaque in the heart and arteries.
The study is published in the journal Nature Medicine.
