One of America's most trusted expert on heart health and wellness, Frederic Vagnini, M.D., F.A.C.S announced today that METABOLIC SYNDROME will be the topic for his VendorWorks presentation entitled "New Concepts in Probiotic Therapy", Sponsored by Nebraska Cultures at -- SupplySide West -- in Las Vegas, Nevada -- Friday, November 11, 2005 from 2 p.m. - 2:50 p.m., Room 2004 at the Venetian & Sand Expo. Dr. Vagnini will discuss how probiotics are used in his practice at the Cardiovascular Wellness Centers in New York to combat Metabolic Syndrome and its effects on heart health. Many of the facets of the Metabolic Syndrome have initiated an interest in probiotics by Dr. Vagnini, and especially how they relate to improving the health of individuals with conditions related to this syndrome.
Metabolic Syndrome consists of four key characteristics, weight around the middle area or what is called abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, and lipid abnormalities - especially high triglycerides and abnormalities of glucose. The problems associated with Metabolic Syndrome include obesity, lipid abnormalities, severe gastrointestinal dysfunction, and inflammation were noted to be markedly improved by probiotics. Dr. Vagnini's research found that Dr. Khem Shahani, the leading pioneer in the area of probiotics who discovered the DDS-1 strain was right on track when it comes to addressing health concerns related to Metabolic Syndrome. Dr Vagnini has incorporated the use of Dr. Shahani's pioneering research on DDS-1, utilizing the probiotics developed by Dr. Khem Shahani for the patients in his practice.
Dr. Vagnini's continuing research will include the many facets of probiotic therapy beyond gastrointestinal function and health. Probiotics has been shown to help reduce inflammation, anxiety, manage cholesterol health, addressing Helicobacter Pylori, helping to improve overall health and enhancing body immunity.
Dr. Vagnini, the Director of the Cardiovascular Wellness Centers in New York advocates the value of probiotics in his personalized patient programs. Dr. Vagnini has over 42 years of experience in the medical field. He has also authored over 25 books and articles, including the foreword for Cultivate Health From Within, a book by Dr. Khem Shahani which is a culmination of over 40 years of research on the health benefits of probiotics. Dr. Vagnini hosts a weekly radio talk show -- The Heart Show -- that airs on WOR -- 710 AM in New York City.
