Metabolic Syndrome: A Silent Killer
Fatty liver is just part of a bigger complex of symptoms called the metabolic syndrome. It consists of overweight, high blood pressure, dangerous blood fats (especially LDL and triglycerides), insulin resistance and a rapid progression to diabetes. In fact it’s been nicknamed “diabesity”. It’s a killer and affects tens of millions in the US alone.
My Bergamot Plus formula, manufactured in the USA, is set to become the first effective treatment (other than diet, drugs and exercise) to control and even help protect against metabolic syndrome.
You don’t want to be like the vast majority, who guzzle sugary drinks, stuff their faces with cookies and dough, and pop candy, then wonder why they have a pot belly or—even worse—diabetes.
Dr. Keith’s Own® Bergamot Plus directly intervenes. As well as all the other cool benefits I have outlined, my bergamot extract also activates AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase) an enzyme which regulates energy in the cells and is thus involved in glucose and fatty acid metabolism.
Protects Delicate Blood Vessels
The Dr. Keith’s Own® Bergamot Plus formula really protects your blood vessels, especially that very thin, delicate lining to arteries that we call the endothelium. It’s very vulnerable to damage by sneak pathogens, rogue fats and inflammatory cytokines. That’s where your arterial plaques get started.
Dr. Keith’s Own® Bergamot Plus formula helps control the secretion of substances that promote inflammation throughout the body, so that’s good news for the lining of your arteries.
How Much Do I Take?
It is generally agreed and scientific studies are based on this, that you need to take 1,000 – 1,500 mg daily for optimum benefit. Dr. Keith’s Own® Bergamot Plus formulation contains 675 mg per tablet and you take two per day (1350 mg).
If you are taking statins don’t just stop them without informing your doctor. Get medical cooperation to adjust the dose (let me know if your doctor agrees...good luck with that!)
If you take blood thinners, like Warfarin, there seems to be no conflict.
Note that, although both are citrus fruits, bergamot does not have the problem we get with grapefruit, which is that the latter blocks drug metabolism and breakdown, making it very risky with certain medications. Bergamot doesn’t do that, thank goodness.
