Resumo

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a multifactorial condition that has been related to accelerated atherosclerosis, increased risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Evidences suggest a relationship between MetS and oxidative stress, which is an imbalance between antioxidant and pro-oxidant substances, with a predominance of the latter. Inflammation and hyperglycemia, for example, lead to the production of reactive oxygen species, resulting in increased oxidative stress, which may trigger atherosclerosis. Oat is known to be a great source of the soluble fiber ?-glucan and it is recognized the benefit of a diet rich in soluble fibers in improving plasma levels of cholesterol and reducing cardiovascular risk.
