Vitamin C and D consumption can alleviate metabolic syndrome, while combining supplementation with exercise maximizes the impact against the condition, say researchers in Iran.
A disorder in which health problems such as obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and impaired glucose metabolism occur together, metabolic syndrome significantly increases the risk for heart attack, stroke, and diabetes.
Also known as ‘syndrome X’ and ‘insulin resistance’, the total cost of this disorder – including not just its cost to healthcare systems, but also the resulting loss of economic activity – runs to trillions of dollars a year.
Fortunately, therefore, through use of the correct combinations of micronutrients, we now know that heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and other life-threatening cardiovascular-related health problems are preventable and controllable without drugs. To join the millions of people worldwide who are already benefiting from this important natural health knowledge, read Dr. Rath’s lifesaving book, Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Attacks…But People Do!
