The treatment of metabolic syndrome focuses on positive lifestyle changes and control of risk factors. Blood pressure control - Risk factors of high blood pressure (also called hypertension) include stroke, hearth and kidney failure. Cholesterol management - Cholesterol is essential to maintain cell membranes, for intracellular transport and cell signaling.
Diabetes prevention - Type 2 diabetes is caused by insulin resistance, when cells fail to respond to insulin correctly.
Exercise - Increased fitness and physical activity is important for weight loss and to improve conditions related to metabolic syndrome. Do you find it impossible to lose weight and keep it off despite your best efforts to diet?
If you answered 'yes' to any of the above, and you're dreading starting another well-intentioned New Year weight loss programme that you know is doomed to failure almost before it's started - don't despair.
The good news is that medical research now appears to confirm that your weight gain may not be your fault at all, but a problem with your metabolism. Starting today in our exclusive four-part diet series, we outline the Metabolism Miracle - a revolutionary new weight loss programme written by respected U.S. Kress explains: 'Traditionally, weight loss programmes have been built on the assumption that everyone's metabolism works in the same way. According to Kress, recent medical studies and her experience of dealing with clients with weight problems suggest that almost 50 per cent of people unwittingly suffer from this alternative metabolism - what she calls Metabolism B (which can also be known as metabolic syndrome, syndrome X and insulin resistance). It's an inherited condition that sends appetite spinning out of your control and causes your body to 'over-process' carbohydrate foods, turning them into excess body fat in the blink of an eye - no matter how hard you diet or exercise.
If you crave carbohydrates, struggle to control your appetite, feel tired, anxious and depressed - then in all probability your weight gain is not your fault at all.
The Metabolism Miracle has already changed the lives of thousands of Americans, and now it can change yours, too. But at the root of all these problems experienced by the Metabolism B sufferer is the chaotic way their body processes carbohydrates and, in particular, the way the pancreas releases the hormone insulin, which is needed to balance blood sugar. Anyone with a 'normal' metabolism can eat, for example, a sandwich (which contains plenty of carbohydrate in the form of bread) and feel full and energetic for four or five hours afterwards. A person with Metabolism B, however, will find themselves craving a chocolate bar within an hour or so of eating the same sandwich. This is because when they eat carbohydrates, their body tends to release too much insulin - which leads to see- sawing blood sugar levels, fatigue and an urgent craving for yet more carb-loaded food. You may be saying at this point that you can't have Metabolism B because, for example, up until a year ago or so, you were able to control your weight with no problem.
But Metabolism B is an inherited predisposition that can lurk for years before making itself known.
Some people who have it may show symptoms as children, while others won't see the signs until their teens or even later in life. Metabolism B is sometimes only 'switched on' by an outside trigger such as stress, inactivity, illness or a hormonal change in the body. However, the good news is that if you follow the Metabolism Miracle diet, you can switch off the Metabolism B rollercoaster, gain control of your appetite and lose all the weight you want to.
We've established that the reason people with Metabolism B struggle with their appetite and weight is because their bodies release too much insulin when they eat carbohydrates - throwing their blood sugar out of kilter and instructing their brains to crave more carbohydrates to try to rebalance things. The human body has a built-in survival mechanism that only serves to add to the weight loss challenges of people with Metabolism B.
Anyone with a normal metabolism who goes for long periods without food will release the right amount of glycogen to keep their body going - but not you.
If you have Metabolism B, your body releases too much insulin - which, in turn, stimulates the glycogen from your liver to move out of your bloodstream into your fat cells. You are developing a paunch, your blood pressure and cholesterol may be rising and you even risk crossing the boundary into the tricky waters of diabetes. You constantly struggle with bouts of low blood sugar that have turned you into a carbohydrate addict.
It may not seem fair, but your condition will increase your appetite, weight and related health problems while wreaking havoc on your life.
It is a simple three-step approach that combats your body's overactive response to carbohydrate intake and trains it to handle carbohydrates normally.
Once you learn to live in balance with your metabolism, your weight will come off - and stay off. There will be no more carb cravings, energy slumps, food binges or frustrating weight regain. Miraculously, you will begin to feel the effects of this new approach in less than one week. Although you will still be eating many of your favourite foods in this easy, straightforward part of the diet, you will, in essence, be cleaning up the metabolic mess you are currently in. As a result, your fat cells will shrink and you will lose weight - most noticeably, the roll of fat around your tummy will diminish dramatically.
As it turns out, temporarily eliminating most carbohydrates from the diet is the only drug-free way to control the blood glucose imbalance that plagues people with this alternative metabolism.
As a result, for the first eight weeks of step one, your blood sugar will run smoothly, with no spikes to stimulate the over-release of insulin that encourage your body to lay down those fat stores.
Don't worry - carbs will come back into the picture in steps two and three of the diet, which we'll outline later in this series, and, by then, you will have established a new metabolic balance that your body can work with. Perhaps the best part about step one of the Metabolism Miracle, besides the fat loss and energy boost it promises, is its ease and simplicity.
During the eight weeks of step one, you may eat liberally from the first three arrows, but you must avoid the foods in the carbohydrate arrow. Although most foods contain a combination of nutrients, they are classified into their arrow by the main nutrient that they contain. THE RULESYou can eat as much of the allowed foods as you like - but obviously, huge portions will thwart your weight loss. Many people are surprised to learn that milk, fruit, carrots and lentils also fit into the carbohydrate arrow. Foods in the carb arrow will have a dramatic impact on blood sugar and cause your body to quickly release insulin, which is why you must avoid these foods during step one - don't be tempted to have even the tiniest amount. The great news is there is no need to weigh, measure or count foods from the lean protein, healthy fat and vegetable arrows. For ease, it is probably best to eat your carbs at mealtimes rather than snack times, so you can be sure of leaving a five- hour gap between them. To calculate a food's net carbs, look under the nutritional values per serving size on the packaging, and subtract the dietary fibre figure from the total carbohydrate grams.
Your strong reaction to this list of foods is just one more affirmation that you have Metabolism B.
However, you should know that every one of my patients who completed the first three days of step one completed the remainder of the eight weeks. Although you will be delighted with the changes that your body feels by the fourth day of this diet, the first three days of Step One will be tough. SnacksHere are some non- carb snacks that will stop you feeling hungry between meals, without breaking the rules. Divide the grated reduced-fat cheese and chopped turkey bacon equally between the four cups. Spoon individual teaspoonfuls of batter on to the prepared hot pan to create small pancakes. Stir the cream into the saucepan that the chicken was cooked in and add enough chicken broth to make a sauce.

La pyramide alimentaire est une aide visuelle destinee a informer le grand public sur la facon de s’alimenter au quotidien. Les aliments figurant a la base de la pyramide sont a privilegier chaque jour, tandis que les aliments a son sommet sont a consommer en quantite limitee le moins souvent possible. Il en existe plusieurs en fonction de la date de parution (les etudes sur la sante et la nutrition evoluent) et en fonction du pays dans lequel elles sont realisees (les directives en matiere de sante ne sont pas les memes dans tous les pays). En ce qui concerne les pays « occidentaux », les politiques en matiere de sante publique liee a la nutrition, nous renvoie a l’augmentation de l’obesite, percue comme un veritable fleau.

Metabolic syndrome, or "Syndrome X," as it is often called, is the combination of obesity, hypercholesterolemia, and hypertension linked by an underlying resistance to insulin. Although the metabolic syndrome X is identified as a major cause of cardiovascular disease, it is less apparent that it increases deaths and disabilities from all causes, and underlies female reproductive disorders, polycystic ovary syndrome, non-alcoholic fatty-liver disease, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, gestational diabetes mellitus, significant changes in body eicosanoid status, and certain cancers (3). Excessive dietary intake of refined sugar, lack of exercise, poorly defined genetic tendencies, and adverse lifestyles contribute variably to the pathogenesis of the metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome has variable clinical manifestations, which I have attempted to incorporate in a new, unifying concept of disease. Change in lifestyle, with specific avoidance of substance abuse, smoking cessation, and reduced intake of caffeine and simple sugars. Behavior modification, including a change in eating patterns and amounts of various foodstuffs eaten.
Exercise matched to the level of the subject's aerobic fitness, with medical advice or advice from professional trainers, recommended before beginning an exercise program and periodically thereafter.
Many types of soluble fiber may benefit individuals with metabolic syndrome, through their effects on appetite, body weight, and blood cholesterol levels (3).
The Glycemic Index and the glycemic load of food are relevant to the dietary guidelines discussed above for counteracting metabolic syndrome (3,8). The influence of eicosanoids on glucose and insulin homeostasis has been defined partially (11), but the influence of insulin resistance (or lack) on eicosanoid pathways is less clear. These observations open a path to the development of nutraceuticals and nutraceutical combinations tailored to specifically affect the function of the human genomic control of cell functions--or "genome-directed nutraceuticals." In this context, some recent and highly popular diets for weight control require reappraisal (3).


Table 2 presents a number of dietary components and supplements (3) that can help in preventing and managing metabolic syndrome. I n s u l i n r e s i s t a n c e -B e t a - g l u c a n f r a c t i o n s o f o a t s o l u b l e f i b e r (Natures Benefit, Inc. Abnormal blood lipids --Oat beta-glucan may reduce blood levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides, and may variably increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. Obesity --Oat beta-glucan may produce a sensation of satiety when taken before meals, and thereby assist in controlling calorie intake. Hypertension --Variable but small reductions in blood pressure result from weight control and lifestyle changes, e.g. Changes in lifestyle, and nutritional interventions with condition-specific dietary supplements (10), may have more to offer for the prevention and treatment of metabolic syndrome than do existing allopathic management strategies (3,10).
However, Aspirin does have some negative side effects, such as the risk of stomach ulcers and bleeding. For people with metabolic syndrome, blood pressure can be reduced through weight loss resulting from good diet and regular exercise. In its early stage, type 2 diabetes can be controlled though dietary changes and through medications.
Unfortunately, popular low-fat diets often lead to an increase in the intake of refined carbohydrates, such as sugars and starches. It is possible to overcome metabolic syndrome by losing weight and by adjusting the diet to stabilize blood glucose levels. Even better, there is a new way - finally - to do something about those unwanted inches that will work for you where all other diets have failed.
That if you monitor your calories, count fat grams, drink meal replacements, or follow the diet sheet - whoever you are, you will lose weight. Read on to discover the diet miracle that really can improve the way you look and feel within days.
This is because when they eat carbohydrates, their body releases insulin in the correct amount, at the correct time for optimal metabolism and energy. So if you have suddenly found you can't control your weight when you never had a problem before, this could be why. When blood sugar drops to the low end of normal and you choose not to eat, your liver can 'feed' the body.
Well, each time you eat carbohydrates, your body can run on that blood sugar for about five hours.
Due to this 'hyper-insulin' response, you feel exhausted and irritable because your blood sugar levels are never constant. Your health will improve, your energy level will soar and you'll experience a feeling of peace and contentment.
It's a low-carb 'rehab' period that's specifically designed to reprogramme your body to handle carbohydrates healthily. For the eight weeks of step one, you will need to cut out most carbohydrates from your diet. By eliminating carb-dense foods, you stop contributing too much sugar to your bloodstream, which helps to stop your body releasing too much insulin.
The temporary elimination of most carbs will enable the liver to deplete most of the glycogen stores it uses for the self-feeding mechanism. For example, steak and chicken fall into the protein arrow, olive oil and nuts fall into the fat arrow, and potatoes fall into the carbohydrate arrow.
During any five-hour period of step one, you may eat no more than 5g of carbohydrate in total. The list of carbohydrates that you must absolutely avoid during step one all exceed the 5g limit (see the arrow chart). I call these foods '5x5 carbs' because you can tally their carbohydrate total with a quick, easy formula to decide if they fit the 5x5 rule. YOU CAN DO ITAlmost every patient with Metabolism B in my practice who sees the 'carbs to avoid' list begins to panic. Continue to cook until the chicken is tender, about 15 more minutes, adding chicken broth as needed to maintain the level of liquid during the cooking process. Realisee par des organismes ou des societes du domaine de la sante, elle doit fournir des reperes clairs pour que les consommateurs puissent etre en bonne sante sur le long terme.

Having MetS indicates an increase in the risk of developing diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other health disturbances. Current pharmaceutical and surgical approaches to management of the syndrome have many disadvantages and limitations.
This concept extends beyond the existing definition of Syndrome X as obesity, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia linked by underlying insulin resistance. Evolution of research into soluble components of dietary fiber has led to the discovery of fractions of oat soluble fiber--beta-glucans--that have been shown to effectively lower blood cholesterol, reduce postprandial blood glucose, induce satiety, and suppress appetite (4-7).
In simple terms, the Glycemic Index is a way of describing the ability of different foods to cause a rise in blood sugar.
Many individuals with Syndrome X have a dietary status where eicosanoid pathways are driven towards the production of prothrombotic and pro-inflammatory prostaglandins (3).
In particular, diets that provide a high saturated fat content with the goal of inducing dietary ketosis, such as the Atkins Diet, and diets involving protein-loading, such as the "Zone" Diet--both of which fall within the realm of low-carbohydrate diets--fail to provide some of the fats and fatty acids that appear to effectively combat metabolic syndrome. Newark, NJ, U SDA, US p a t e n t 6 , 0 6 0 , 5 1 9 ) m a y l o w e r b l o o d g l u c o se levels after sugar intake. Starch-blockers, such as Phaseolamin 2250 (Pharmachem, Hackensack , NJ ) (Phase 2) may inhibit sugar absorption. This may be reduced by bioflavonoids, ellagic acid, anthocyanidins, alpha lipoic acid and other antioxidants. Combating the specific components of this syndrome has become one of the most important public health initiatives in Western Society (3,10).
Based on these predictors, your doctor can then calculate Framingham risk scores, that estimate your risk of cardiovascular disease. Your doctor may prescribe medications to control blood pressure if lifestyle changes are not sufficient. These simple carbohydrates are a major contributing factor to metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and diabetes. Do you struggle to resist carbohydrate foods such as bread, cakes, chocolate, crisps and pasta? WHAT EXACTLY IS METABOLISM B?There are a host of symptoms related to Metabolism B, as you will see when you work through the questionnaire on the right - including uncontrollable weight gain, a spongy roll of fat around your tummy and lack of energy. If you choose not to eat within five hours, your liver will automatically release stored blood sugar called glycogen to push blood sugar levels back into the normal range. You'll need to check the labels on the packaging to see how much carbohydrate they contain. This '5x5 rule' allows you to eat limited amount of carbs without stimulating insulin release. In a mixing bowl, blend together the ricotta cheese, soy flour, rapeseed oil, vanilla, Splenda and salt. Cote nutrition, les fruits, legumes, huile d'olives, graines et epices y sont predominants.
Insulin resistance is a condition in which chronically high levels of blood sugar and insulin have caused the bodya€™s mechanism for regulating insulin and blood glucose (sugar) to fail. The syndrome was first described by Reaven in 1998 (1), but its principal component of obesity was not initially emphasized.
It has been suggested that focused treatments of obesity, hypercholesterolemia, and hypertension that constitute the individual components of the syndrome are unlikely to provide a better outcome than are integrated management strategies (2). Although the glucocolloids that contain these beta-glucans have physicochemical properties that modulate upper gastrointestinal motility by delaying gastric emptying (8), and retard or impede the absorption of specific macronutrients in the form of glucose and fats, they also have intrinsic metabolic effects (IMEF).
Foods laden with simple sugars can be expected to cause a rapid rise in blood glucose to high levels which, in turn, causes insulin secretion from the pancreas. This may occur largely as a consequence of dietary deficiency of certain essential fatty acids or alteration in the ratio of omega 6 and omega 3 essential fatty acid dietary intake. Specifically, diets intended to combat the syndrome should have more liberal contents of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, in the correct balance with one another, together with a strictly controlled intake of refined carbohydrates, a restricted salt intake, an intake of fiber intake, and an increased proportion of vegetable sources of protein (9). Chromium picolinate and polynicotinate (Nutrition 21, Inc., White Plains , New York ) and alpha lipoic may assist insulin function. In particular, the increasingly global initiative for achievement of a healthy body weight must be comprehensive in its tactics (3,10) and current low carbohydrate diets require modification and facilitation with revised dietary guidelines and the help of key dietary supplements or functional foods.
Diets containing soluble oat extracts improve glucose and insulin responses of moderately hypercholesterolemic men and women. Effect of gel fiber on gastric emptying and absorption of glucose and paracetamol in humans.
This is a diet that includes reduced calories and avoidance of refined sugar and simple carbohydrates (starches) such as in bread, pasta, rice and potatoes.
I felt that there was something wrong with removing an entire group of nutrients from the daily diet. Low-fat yoghurt contains protein and fat, too - however its main nutrient is carbohydrate, so this dairy product is in the carbohydrate arrow. Aujourd'hui le PNNS (programme national nutrition sante) ne se base plus dessus pour passer son message nutritionnel.
Les principales sources de proteines proviennent des produits de la mer et l’energie, des cereales completes. If left untreated, being insulin resistant usually leads to MetS, prediabetes and possibly a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes (T2D). Retrospective data from the National Health Nutritional Survey for the period 1988 to 1994 implied that 47-million Americans had metabolic syndrome (2). This suggestion is consistent with dietary attempts to restrict carbohydrate intake, and may explain the short-term success of some low carbohydrate diets for weight control (3).


This IMEF occurs in part as a consequence of their fermentation in the colon to yield short-chain fatty acids, including propionic, acetoacetic, and butyric acids. Such foods have "High Glycemic Index." A major component of the glycemic index is related to altered rates of sugar absorption. Furthermore, there is evidence that eicosanoid production can be modified by insulin lack and hyperglycemia. Low carbohydrate diets that are proposed currently require facilitation to make them more effective in the long term and more healthy in terms of the global initiative of healthy weight control, with lowering of cholesterol blood pressure and combat against insulin resistance. Simple carbohydrates should be replaced with complex carbohydrates such as in some fruits and vegetables. Add the chicken, green pepper, paprika and stock to the saucepan and cook for 30 minutes over a low heat. The current prevalence of the syndrome may now be one in every four adults in the United States population, or about 70-million persons.
The notion of integrated management strategies opens the door for alternative management strategies with dietary supplements. Effective prevention and treatment of metabolic syndrome involves a multifaceted approach directed at all of its cardinal components (3). Of these, propionic acid can enter the portal circulation of the liver, and may interfere with cholesterol synthesis by blocking the activity of hydroxymethyl-glutaryl coenzyme A (HMG CoA) reductase, a key enzyme in the synthetic pathway of cholesterol (4,6). These are determined to a significant degree by altered rates of transfer of glucose to its site of maximal absorption in the small bowel, which is a function of the rate of gastric emptying (3,8,10). Animal studies show increases in a circulating metabolites of PGE 2 production after the experimental induction of diabetes with streptozotocin (12). Even though you will be eating plenty of food for the first three days, you can expect to feel tired, grumpy, hungry, slightly shaky, light-headed and a little headachy.
So common and so pernicious are the negative health outcomes of metabolic syndrome that it qualifies as the number-one public health problem facing several Western societies.
Current allopathic treatments, which may have been too specifically focused on the individual components of metabolic syndrome, can be kept as a "back-up plan" for its management. Other types of soluble fiber are of value in blunting postprandial blood glucose responses, e.g.
Avoid saturated and trans-fats, alcohol and sodium, but consumption of limited amounts of “good” fats is important.
In contrast, the natural techniques of lifestyle modification, and nutritional or nutraceutical interventions or both, may provide versatile and potent first-line options for its management (3). Thus, both the circumstances that contribute to the development of Syndrome X and insulin resistance within the metabolic Syndrome X can be expected to cause changes in the body eicosanoid status in a detrimental manner for health. This metabolic change in eicosanoid status is mainly a quantitative difference in the types of eicosanoid (prostaglandins) produced.
This means regular aerobic exercise to burn fat and increase your metabolism as well as weight training to increase your muscle mass. After three days, I promise you will begin to feel much better, and following the diet will become easier. More significant, it is known that among eicosanoid derivatives, eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) can enhance insulin sensitivity, presumably through effects on PPAR-receptors, which regulate the actions of insulin (3). The problem is that your liver contains a stockpile of blood sugar in the form of glycogen. When you begin Step One and cut out dense carbohydrate from your diet, your liver will automatically 'feed' you with a meal's worth of glycogen from its stores, a process it will repeat about every five hours.
In response to this, your pancreas will release too much insulin and your blood sugar will continue to rollercoaster, even though you will be eating minimal carbohydrates. There’s hope for getting your body metabolically back on track as well as keeping it on track throughout your entire life.
After three days, as you continue to eliminate a large amount of carbohydrate from your diet and your liver remains purposely depleted of most of its glycogen stores, your brain will have to come up with an alternative plan for fuelling your body. Some of the best ways to avoid metabolic syndrome include maintaining a healthy weight, regularly exercising and eating a plant-centric diet while avoiding metabolism death foods.In fact, a loss of just 3 percent to 5 percent of your current body weight can lower your triglycerides, blood glucose and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Greater amounts of weight loss can also improve blood pressure readings, lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol. Now for the good news: if you follow my plan, the choice it will make will be to burn fat cells. Exercise plays an important role in the Metabolism Miracle now as it literally energises and activates muscle. These frozen, bagged and boxed items are typically devoid of nutrients and loaded with unhealthy additives and preservatives that do nothing good for your health.In fact, a 2015 study found that fast food consumption, some of the most unhealthy processed food on the planet, increases the incidence of metabolic syndrome in both children and adults. Artificial SweetenersArtificial sweeteners like Splenda have been directly linked with the occurrence of diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Accumulating evidence suggests that frequent consumers of sugar substitutes containing aspartame, sucralose and saccharin may also be at an increased risk of excessive weight gain as well as development of metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Diet SodasSince diet sodas contain artificial sweeteners as well as other unhealthy ingredients, you don’t want to touch these lethal soft drinks. Studies show that the consumption of diet soda is associated with significantly greater risks of select incident metabolic syndrome components and type 2 diabetes. According to one 2009 study, daily consumption of diet soda was associated with a 36 percent greater risk of metabolic syndrome and a 67 percent greater risk of having type 2 diabetes! (5)4. They raise LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which is bad news for your waistline, heart health and metabolic disorders.
Refined Carbohydrates and SugarConsumption of these two are major culprits when it comes to high blood sugar levels, insulin resistance, and the development of diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Sugar, especially when used to sweeten beverages, is a major culprit, as are refined carbs. Fish & Omega-3 FoodsThe omega-3 found in wild-caught, cold-water fish have been found to help regulate heartbeat, reduce blood pressure, decrease blood clot formation and reduce overall inflammation, all of which decrease the risk for heart attacks and strokes. This way, not only do you keep your meals interesting, but you obtain all of the great vitamins and nutrients vegetables can offer you!3. FruitsSimilar to vegetables, there are so many options that not only taste good, but help you ward off metabolic syndrome.
You can opt for apples, bananas, oranges, pears or prunes if you need some ideas that are easy to consume quickly or on the go. LegumesSome delicious and tasty legumes to try include kidney beans, lentils, chickpeas, black-eyed peas and lima beans.
Rich in fiber and protein, legumes are an excellent daily choice for keeping blood sugar stable and your waistline trim. Whole Grains High-fiber foods, like quality whole grains including oatmeal and brown rice, not only have proven benefits for diabetes and heart health, but they also help keep your waistline in check.
As such, whole grains are a part of a balanced, healthy metabolic syndrome diet treatment plan. Ginseng, Berberine & Bitter melon Research published in 2009 showed that ginseng, berberine and bitter melon, which are commonly used in Chinese medicine, are potent natural remedies when it comes to metabolic syndrome.
They help regulate glucose and lipid metabolism, which directly and positively affect weight management. Holy BasilWhen researchers from the Department of Home Science at Azad University of Agriculture and Technology in India investigated the effects of holy basil leaves on blood glucose and serum cholesterol levels in humans through double-blind clinical trials, the outcomes showed that holy basil caused significant improvements in blood glucose control and mild improvements in cholesterol levels. This suggests that basil supplementation can be a useful and safe way to help control diabetes and complications that result from the disease like metabolic syndrome. SpirulinaSpirulina contains phycocyanin, a pigment that scientists have discovered possesses antihypertensive effects, meaning it lowers blood pressure).
Japanese researchers claim that this is because consuming the blue-green algae reverses endothelial dysfunction in metabolic syndrome. (17)4.
Maca RootMaca root increases the glutathione levels in the body, which not only improves your immune system and disease resistance, but also helps balance proper levels of cholesterol in the body. In addition, it significantly improves glucose tolerance by lowering levels of glucose in the blood, which improves heart health and conditions like diabetes or metabolic syndrome. If you’re going to lose weight, it’s key that you also reduce inflammation and support digestion and absorption of nutrients, which ginger oil helps you to do. Burst TrainingGetting rid of belly fat is key when it comes to treating metabolic syndrome. It consists of exercising at 90 percent to 100 percent of your maximum effort for 30 to 60 seconds, slowing it down to low-impact for a recovery period of just 30 to 60 seconds, and then bumping it back up again.If you’ve been spending hours on the treadmill without results, it’s because long-distance cardiovascular exercise can decrease testosterone and raise cortisol, the stress hormone. Increased levels of cortisol stimulate the appetite, increase fat storing, and slow down or inhibit exercise recovery. If burst training isn’t for you, then aim for at least 30 minutes per day of moderate-intensity exercise, such as brisk walking. Lose Weight Through diet and exercise, losing weight can reduce insulin resistance and blood pressure, helping to get your metabolic syndrome under control.
Stop SmokingSmoking cigarettes can lead to and worsen the health consequences of metabolic syndrome as well as increase your likelihood for heart problems and stroke, among other major health concerns. It’s actually the term for a cluster of conditions, including abdominal obesity, high triglyceride levels, high fasting blood sugar levels, high blood pressure or low HDL cholesterol. When a person has three or more of these metabolic risk factors occurring together, then he or she is diagnosed as having metabolic syndrome.About 85 percent of people who have type 2 diabetes also have metabolic syndrome. These individuals have a much higher risk for heart disease than the 15 percent of people who have type 2 diabetes without metabolic syndrome. High Triglycerides Another possible sign of metabolic syndrome is a high triglyceride level. When you eat, your body converts any calories it doesn’t need to use right away into triglycerides.
Next, insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps the glucose enter your cells to be used as fuel. However, if you experience insulin resistance, your cells won’t respond in a typical fashion to insulin, and hence, the glucose cannot enter your cells as easily.
In the not so distant future, metabolic syndrome may even overtake smoking as the leading risk factor for heart disease.Thankfully, there is realistic hope for naturally preventing metabolic disorders in the body. You can prevent or delay metabolic syndrome mainly with something that is very much in your control — lifestyle changes. A daily and long-term effort to maintain a healthy lifestyle is no doubt your surest and best bet to avoid metabolic syndrome and all the complications that can arise from this multidimensional health struggle! Foods to eat include fish and omega-3 foods, vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains.
