The Solution to Metabolic Syndrome
Are you at risk for metabolic syndrome?
Unfortunately the risk is quite high, and it’s not easily treated. Metabolic syndrome is found in the combination of hypertension, dyslipidaemia, insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, glucose intolerance, and obesity. High blood pressure, high fat and cholesterol, not being able to use or control insulin, high blood sugar, and being overweight, are all conditions primarily managed by diet and lifestyle choices. A big problem is the stubbornness of these conditions. Doctors can prescribe medications to assist in managing them, but a “cure” seems elusive. Treating this condition is done by managing individual risk factors which work to reduce the whole syndrome. Prevention is the best cure, but with a great deal of determined effort, reversal of these conditions has been possible too.
Diet and lifestyle are the main controlling factors in each of the above conditions aside from genetics and other health concerns which affect metabolic syndrome. Due to the lack of reversal in these conditions, especially unhealthy weight gain, doctors are urgently calling for new approaches to deal with this issue. Many popular diets are not sustainable and create more problems going forward, this is why nutritionists are emphasising the need for a balanced whole food diet which is a long term solution to dietary concerns. Some of the best recommended plans include the Mediterranean diet and a low GI diet. Both of these are especially effective in combating glucose control, insulin management, and cholesterol.
Some benefits of these eating plans include high dietary fibre and antioxidant sources. The very same reason we recommend NZFOS+ to people with any of the conditions involved in metabolic syndrome. Fibre and antioxidants are essential to weight loss, lipid management and controlling metabolic hormones like insulin. One of the key reasons is the production of short chain fatty acids (SCFA’s). SCFA’s are responsible for the improvement of insulin sensitivity, glucose control, cholesterol reduction, visceral fat reduction, normal blood pressure, and so much more. NZFOS+ can double a person’s SCFA count faster and more effectively than a change of diet alone.
If you would like more information about how NZFOS+ can improve any of the above conditions, please feel free to reach out and ask. With growing numbers of people in our communities affected by these conditions, we are more motivated than ever to offer an effective solution to metabolic syndrome. Along with diet and exercise we are so pleased that many people have found a way to manage and reverse long term conditions in an effective and sustainable way.
