Today, chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease have become so common that most people don’t remember what it’s like to be in excellent health. And if they’re not feeling their best, they can’t be their best.
In truth, many chronic health conditions are preventable. They’re the result of years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, and prolonged exposure to stress. And leading health organizations now tell us that by returning to a healthier lifestyleâ€”by getting the right nutrients, becoming active, and learning to manage the stressors in lifeâ€”many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed.
The solution seems so simple, and yet, the incidence of chronic illness is continuing to rise at an alarming rate. Metagenics intends change all that through the development of medical foods for cholesterol, blood sugar inflammation to address the root causes of illness through science based nutrition.
The science of nutrigenomicsâ€”the study of food as one of the most important environmental modifiers of gene expression in determining health and disease patterns is the future of medicine. Through our substantial and ongoing commitment to nutrigenomic research, Metagenics had been able to identify natural compounds with powerful therapeutic applications, to be used in our science-based lifestyle programs and medical foods. Here is a recent announcement of breakthrough research of a Metagenics product:
Researchers at the University of Florida and Metagenics Inc. today announced that a program consisting of a breakthrough medical food combined with a low-glycemic, Mediterranean-style diet is almost twice as effective as one of the best diets alone for lowering risk factors for cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in the U.S.
In addition, the medical food UltraMealÂ® PLUS 360Â° is 40 percent more likely to resolve metabolic syndrome, a condition affecting one-third of all American adults that increases the risk for heart disease and diabetes. Researchers believe that patients who incorporate the medical food into their diets as well as make necessary life style changes can improve their health faster than by using a Mediterranean diet alone.
In addition to Metagenics products, their groundbreaking therapeutic lifestyle change (TLC) programs have helped tens of thousands of chronic illness sufferers all over the world regain their healthâ€”so they can once again enjoy their lives to the fullest.
