Weight loss and lifestyle change are the best ways to modulate the development and progression of fatty liver, but compliance is often an issue.
TORONTO (PRWEB) August 20, 2020
Non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL) and the disease state it propagates currently affect approximately two billion people, globally. It’s the epidemic that people are only beginning to become aware of, as its silent process and complicating role in many chronic diseases positions it to cripple health economies around the world, according to some statistics. Practically speaking, NAFL affects more people than the populations of China and US, combined.
NAFL is a lifestyle-linked process, driven by the excess consumption of fat, sugar and calories, as well as an underactive lifestyle. The complications of fatty liver are extensive – affecting systems beyond the liver, including the heart and vascular systems, kidneys and significantly impacts the onset and progression of diabetes. Weight loss and lifestyle change are the best ways to modulate the development and progression of fatty liver, but compliance is often an issue.
What if botanical extracts that were specially-formulated to maintain their food-like fingerprint could both impede the fatty liver process and take some of the frustration out of adopting a healthier lifestyle and maintaining a healthy weight? The food-like fingerprint we are describing characterizes the inclusion of native fibers from potent botanicals, like bergamot, that add value in targeting aspects of NAFL directly and indirectly. The webinar will also evidence the traditional wisdom of botanical synergism and how standardized ingredient formulations may be the best way forward for multifactorial processes, like NAFL.
