Liver fibrosis in model mice, with induced NASH, was suppressed after eating a diet containing Euglena and paramylon powders for 27 days. This result suggests that the Euglena and paramylon powders effectively suppressed disease progression.
Model rats were fed a diet containing an Euglena powder for 10 weeks following induction of diabetes, and then glucose was administered in a fasting state to monitor the level of blood sugar (sugar tolerance test). Consequently, the total blood sugar level within a given time(AUC) significantly declined. This result suggests a possibility that continuous intake of Euglena suppresses the elevation of the blood sugar level – a typical symptom of diabetes – and thus contributes to the prevention of diabetes and its complications or relieve the symptoms.
Continuous consumption of 1 g of an Euglena powder for 2 months by 30 people with relatively high blood fat levels resulted in a significant decrease
