Insulin Resistance can be an underlying cause of Metabolic
Syndrome, which, if neglected, may lead to coronary artery
disease, resulting in a stroke.
People suffering from Metabolic Syndrome, also known as Syndrome
X, often have elevated cholesterol levels, high blood pressure,
obesity and Insulin Resistance, which all damage the
cardiovascular system. Insulin Resistance is an underlying cause
of obesity, which, in turn, can be a key factor in the
development of Metabolic Syndrome.
Reversing Insulin Resistance can be a crucial factor in heart
disease prevention in other ways because it also increases a
person's risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes, which sharply
increases the likelihood of Cardiovascular Disease.
heart disease (CHD) is a broad term that describes any disorder
that can impact the functioning of the heart muscle itself or
the whole cardiovascular system. Conditions that contribute to heart disease include high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis (the
build-up of calcium deposits on the artery wall) and
atherosclerosis (the build-up of fatty deposits on the artery
The causes of heart disease include: elevated LDL “bad”
cholesterol, low HDL “good” cholesterol, obesity, elevated blood
pressure, Type 2 Diabetes, cigarette smoking and lack of
physical activity. Many of these are underlying conditions found
in both Insulin Resistance and Metabolic Syndrome.
Chronic high levels of glucose and insulin are classic
symptoms of Insulin Resistance and Metabolic Syndrome. One of
the primary risk factors for atherosclerosis, a form of
hardening of the arteries, is an elevated level of
triglycerides. The biggest risk factor for increasing the
production of triglycerides is the rate of your insulin

condition among children as it is among adults and preventive
steps should be taken immediately in children who exhibit this
condition to ward off premature heart disease."
is produced in your pancreas and released into the circulatory
system where it is the key to the absorption of glucose by your
cells. If your cells resist insulin, then both insulin and
glucose build up in your blood. Excess insulin leads to weight
gain and high blood pressure – both precursors to Cardiovascular
Disease. As insulin comes in contact with the interior wall of
the arteries, it damages the tissue, causing the initial injury
that produces plaque. Therefore, having Insulin Resistance and
Metabolic Syndrome directly cause changes in the blood lipids
and overall cardiovascular health that contribute to the
formation of heart disease.
Recommendations for reducing heart disease risk are the same as
those for reducing Insulin Resistance, namely decreasing
insulin, balancing cholesterol and lowering blood pressure. It
all involves managing Metabolic Syndrome to minimize current
symptoms and an attempt to delay or prevent worsening of the
underlying conditions that lead to heart disease. This can be
done through careful food choices, including a low cholesterol
diet, exercise and weight loss in overweight individuals. But a
multi-faceted approach is clearly necessary to address all the
symptoms of these conditions.
A complete system is required that includes nutraceuticals (vitamins, herbs
and minerals that are disease specific), a realistic exercise
program combined with nutritional guidance and a support network
that will help you change unhealthy lifestyle choices.
Click here to read about the scientific breakthrough called the Insulite MetaX
System, which is designed to help reduce heart disease risk factors
such as high cholesterol and hypertension
(high blood pressure) by restoring your balance of glucose
and insulin levels. Among the system's formulations is InsulX,
which includes vanadium, a compound that helps to lower "bad"
"I have been on the Insulite
System for approx 3 months. I have lost 33 lbs, my liver
functions are normal and my A1C came back at 5.1, down from 8.03 months ago. I
was taking 10 Glucovance pills daily, now I take only 2 pills in the
AM. My blood sugar is normal, my energy is higher than it has been in
years and I feel great. Insulite along with a change in my diet has
changed my life.
I tell everyone that asks me what I have done to change my life, about the Insulite program.
Your product is fantastic. I have
cut out all sweets, flour, dairy and have no cravings."

"In less than 3 weeks I've started losing
weight again after being
"stuck" on Weight Watchers for about a year. I've lost about 4
starting Insulite but more significantly my blood pressure is
well within normal limits now and I can tell my metabolism is
better. I am not getting that slump between meals and am able to control
between-meal snacking, and I have a lot of energy throughout the day rather
than periods where I need to nap. I just ordered the 6 months
supply. Thank you!"
"Researchers agree that insulin
resistance is central to the metabolic syndrome. When target
cells are unresponsive to insulin, the pancreas responds by
pouring even more insulin into the bloodstream, leading to high
levels of the hormone in the blood, a condition called
compensatory hyperinsulinemia. The high level of insulin in the
blood forces glucose into cells but also starts the events
leading to arterial damage and eventually a heart attack. Under
these conditions, a person may not manifest either diabetes or
heart disease but could well be on the way to either or both."
"I wanted to let you know how much I
appreciate your caring advice and guiding me towards taking control of my health.
It's hard to express in
words how long I have been trying to find the answers you have so easily
provided for me.
I am so excited about the positive changes in my health and I
can't wait to see where I am six months from now, yet alone the year. Thank

"Simply losing 5-7% of your body fat (typically 10-15 pounds) and increasing your physical activity by taking a brisk walk 4-5 times a week can reduce your risk of developing Type
II Diabetes by almost 60%."
"I started your product and found
it really boosts my system,
helping me get off ground zero, and stop the spiral downwards.
It gave me the
energy to start exercising and prepare healthy meals.
You are all very supportive, even though I am on the other side
of the world
(Australia). I am very glad that I am on your product, your
are also very encouraging, when I am finding things a bit
harder. Thank you for everything."
"A non-pharmacologic treatment for these
patients is needed, since drugs prescribed to lower blood
pressure have been shown to actually worsen carbohydrate and
lipid metabolism in Syndrome X patients, negating the beneficial
effects of those drugs."
"I cannot believe the difference
the Insulite System has made in how I feel. My appetite has
changed tremendously. I do not crave carbs and sugar and my
appetite is somewhat diminished."
"...approximately 90% of
overweight Hispanic children with a family history for type 2 diabetes have at least one
feature of the metabolic syndrome and 30% possess the metabolic syndrome.
Our results support the view that improving insulin resistance may be crucial in the prevention
of both type 2 diabetes and premature cardiovascular disease in this at-risk subpopulation
of Hispanic youth."
