EcoNugenics®, an integrative health and supplement company, announced, today, a declaration of war on Metabolic Syndrome with the launch of, Metabolic Defense™. This natural formulation safely and effectively helps manage the cluster of dangerous symptoms called Metabolic Syndrome. This condition has gained widespread media attention recently due to the Framingham Observational Study that noted a 40% greater incidence of Metabolic Syndrome among adults consuming soft drinks.
According to the American Heart Association (AHA), Metabolic Syndrome afflicts over 50 million adults in the U.S. It involves a cluster of three or more of the following conditions: obesity, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol, increased risk of blood clotting and elevated C-reactive protein in the blood. Each of these conditions, individually, can lead to a higher incidence of diabetes, heart attack or stroke. When three or more are present in one person, it's often deadly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that over six million people are hospitalized each year in the U.S. due to cardiovascular disease, alone, and 950,000 of them die. The economic costs are estimated to be over $350 billion.
Isaac Eliaz, M.D., the formulator of Metabolic Defense says that Metabolic Syndrome can be prevented or reversed. He believes that lack of balance plays a key role in triggering a genetic tendency towards Metabolic Syndrome. This imbalance occurs in our nutrition, lifestyle, sleep habits and stress. "I truly believe that certain lifestyle and dietary changes, together with proper supplementation can prevent or reverse Metabolic Syndrome and its harmful consequences," said Dr. Eliaz. "What is clear is that Metabolic Syndrome has become an epidemic and the health care system needs to provide tools to address it." Dr. Eliaz is a pioneer in addressing childhood obesity, and his major concern is that Metabolic Syndrome is being seen in younger and younger individuals. This provided the impetus and urgency for developing Metabolic Defense. His formulations have the highest quality ingredients that have been clinically tested to insure safety and effectiveness.
As a medical doctor who has also been trained in Chinese and Tibetan medicine, Dr. Eliaz drew upon the properties of these traditional practices, as well as cutting edge modern science to provide a supplement that addresses Metabolic Syndrome.
