cholesterol is a key symptom of Metabolic Syndrome, which can
damage the cardiovascular system and lead to a
heart attack or
the body becomes Insulin Resistant, it begins a cycle which
leads to the release of more and more insulin to compensate.
This condition is called hyperinsulinemia as pancreatic insulin
secretion rises to maintain normal levels of glucose in the
blood stream. Hyperinsulinemia can then stimulate lipid storage
(fat storage throughout the body) and altered lipoprotein
(higher levels of cholesterol) which increase the risks of
damage to the cardiovascular system. Combating hyperinsulinemia
is a crucial factor in heart disease prevention.
The resulting excess of insulin in hyperinsulinemia also
encourages the liver to produce more of the blood lipids called
triglycerides. This blood fat disorder is called Dyslipidemia,
which fosters plaque build-up in artery walls. Dyslipidemia is
diagnosed when LDL "bad" cholesterol is high, HDL ("good"
cholesterol) is low, triglyceride levels are high or there is a
combination of all these factors, which are associated with an
increased risk for heart disease.
Additionally, LDL cholesterol particles seen in people who
suffer from Insulin Resistance and Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome
smaller and more dense than the particles of people without this
condition. This factor has been directly linked to an increased
risk of Cardiovascular Disease, heart attacks and stroke,
although the exact cause of the relationship is unclear.
levels of the “bad” cholesterol (LDL, or low-density
lipoprotein) are one of the underlying symptoms that will
trigger a diagnosis of Metabolic Syndrome. Obesity, high blood
lipids, poor diet and physical inactivity are known to have an
effect on the development of high levels of cholesterol.
woman with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) also often
displays signs of Metabolic Syndrome. These may include high
blood pressure, Type 2 Diabetes and excessive abdominal fat,
all high risk factors for developing Cardiovascular Disease,
heart attacks and stroke. Scientists and health care
professionals have been warning in recent years of the dangers
of "high cholesterol", which is actually a reference to LDL, as
opposed to the "good" cholesterol, or HDL (high-density
lipoprotein.) In general, the lower a person's LDL, and the
higher their HDL, the lower the risk of Cardiovascular Disease.
The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) advises that
addressing high levels of cholesterol is critical. “But the idea
that you can use cholesterol-lowering drugs without lifestyle
changes is incorrect," said Scott Grundy, M.D., Ph.D. and the
American Heart Association's representative to the NCEP.
"Lifestyle changes have enormous benefits beyond lowering LDL
cholesterol, such as raising levels of good cholesterol,
lowering triglycerides, improving Diabetes and reducing
inflammation of the arteries," he said.
a low cholesterol diet may not be enough to improve problems
with cholesterol. Although there are approved drugs that can
help lower cholesterol levels, there are currently no drugs that
will completely reverse the symptoms of Insulin Resistance,
Metabolic Syndrome or PCOS. Instead, you must rely on a
multi-faceted approach to improving these conditions.

Click here to read about the ground-breaking Insulite MetaX System, which can reverse Insulin Resistance-linked weight gain, a key underlying cause of heart-damaging Metabolic Syndrome. The system includes numerous formulations, including OmegaX, which features omega-3 fatty acids to help reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke by preventing a build-up of high cholesterol and the onset of high blood pressure (hypertension).
"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."
