METABOLIC SYNDROME: Towards a catastrophic situation

Metabolic syndrome is not a disease. It is a series of health problems that greatly increase the risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease, weakening the immune system (1) and leading to accelerated aging.

Its rapid and borderless development announce a global health catastrophe as shown by its link to severe and fatal cases of COVID-19 (2).

We talk about metabolic syndrome when we observe in a patient with abdominal obesity, at least 2 of the following factors:

Hyperglycemia, high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, high blood pressure.

Metabolic syndrome affects 25% to 30% of the adult population in Europe and increases with age. It progresses rapidly and reaches more and more young people. Most people with metabolic syndrome ignore their condition.

Extrinsic factors, diet with excess sugars and a sedentary lifestyle as well as epigenetic factors are the main causes of the metabolic syndrome. Numerous studies show that glycation is directly associated with metabolic syndrome (3).

The metabolic syndrome can be controlled by adopting, at its first signs, a specific lifestyle: daily physical exercises, avoid sugary foods. Nutritional supplementation against glycation can help control a metabolic syndrome.

[AGE BREAKER METABOLISM, patented nutritional supplement, based on rosmarinic acid, recognized by aging specialists around the world for its properties to reverse the effects of glycation.] [Glycation is one of the major causes of aging. Resulting from the fixation of sugars on the proteins constituting the organism, glycation generates toxic compounds that cause cellular aging. Glycation is particularly involved in metabolic disorders, skin aging and cognitive decline.]
