Insulin Resistance and Weight Gain
Underlie Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X)

"Recent research has shown that losing weight around the abdomen and increasing your bodyís muscle tone has a dramatic effect on reducing the risk of developing the cluster of Cardiovascular Diseases known as Metabolic Syndrome, also called Syndrome X."
Exercise Combats Metabolic Syndrome in Older Adults.
John's Hopkins Medicine, American Journal of Preventive Medicine, January 2005
Insulin Resistance is a root cause of both excess weight gain and Metabolic Syndrome (also called Syndrome X), which is a condition that can damage your cardiovascular system and result in a heart attack or stroke.
  • Since your body isn't converting food to energy properly because of Insulin Resistance, it demands even more food. As these cravings increase, so does weight gain.
  • As Insulin Resistance and weight gain continue to increase, your body further loses its ability to process food correctly, causing a vicious cycle which leads to even more weight gain.
  • Eating binges can occur as a result of Insulin Resistance. More insulin enters the blood stream, laying the foundation for excessive weight gain and obesity, which can, in turn, cause Metabolic Syndrome.

The Insulite MetaX System has been specifically designed to change your body's chemistry at a cellular level by increasing the sensitivity of your cell walls to facilitate the vital process of converting glucose to energy.

The goal of the System is to permanently restore your body's natural ability to process food so that you can reach your ideal weight, reverse the symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome and enjoy optimum health. It also addresses additional health risks posed by Insulin Resistance, including Pre-Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease.

How the Insulite MetaX System Works

Building Your Strength Can Reduce
the Risk of Metabolic Syndrome

Lowering your percentage of body fat and adding muscle tissue through regular strength training can be a great way to help guard against heart disease.

Recent research has shown that losing weight around the abdomen and increasing your body's muscle tone has a dramatic effect on reducing the risk of developing the cluster of Cardiovascular Diseases known as Metabolic Syndrome, also called Syndrome X. The disorder also plays a key role in the development of Type II Diabetes and has been linked to prostate cancer.

One study reported that Metabolic Syndrome declined by 41% among a group of 104 adults aged 55 to 75 after the participants added 20 minutes of gentle weightlifting to their aerobic routine over a period of six months (1).

Circuit weight training, in which you move from one exercise to the next with little rest in between, is a good way to combine a strength workout with aerobics because the rapid pace keeps the heart rate up. But always consult a doctor or exercise specialist before beginning a strength training and aerobics regime.

Many people are unaware that they are suffering from Metabolic Syndrome, even though the American Heart Association estimates that 20-25% of the adult population of the U.S. suffer from this disorder. That means between 58 and 73 million men and women are at risk.

Building Your Strength Reduces RiskMetabolic Syndrome is characterized by having at least three of the following symptoms:

  • Insulin Resistance (when the body can't absorb blood sugar or insulin properly)
  • Abdominal fat - in men this means a 40 inch waist or larger, in women 35 inches or larger
  • High blood sugar levels - at least 110 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) after fasting
  • High triglycerides - at least 150 mg/dL in the blood stream
  • Low HDL (the "good" cholesterol) - less than 40 mg/dL
  • Prothrombotic state (e.g. high fibrinogen or plasminogen activator inhibitor in the blood)
  • Blood pressure of 130/85 mmHg or higher

"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 lbs since 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 you again!"

"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%."
Diabetes Prevention Program study 2001, study funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, et al.
"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 weekly messages 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."

"...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."
