Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X) and
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

Information about PCOS and Metabolic SyndromeWomen with Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X) are more prone to developing Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), a leading cause of infertility and menstrual irregularity. Ovaries secrete abnormally high levels of testosterone and other hormones with the onset of PCOS, which is also known as Sclerocystic Ovarian Disease, Stein-Leventhal Syndrome and Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD).

An estimated 5-10% of all women of childbearing age are affected by this disorder. Post-menopausal women can also suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

"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 only 27 and was really feeling the effects of my IR and PCOS, with terrible lethargy and fearing that I would never get my active life back. I was taking glucophage which did nothing for me but cause stomach and bowel problems. After 2 1/2 weeks on Insulite PCOS, I feel an amazing difference in energy and even a little in my weight.

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!"

Women with classic Metabolic Syndrome symptoms like excess weight and obesity are prone to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. But they do not have a monopoly on the latter condition because females of a healthy weight and even lean women are also vulnerable to PCOS.

A root cause of PCOS is Insulin Resistance. This hormonal imbalance can cause a wide variety of symptoms, ranging from menstrual irregularity, infertility and excessive facial and body hair to acne, fatigue, mood swings and male pattern baldness. Some women suffer from many of the classic symptoms of Polycystic Overian Syndrome without realising they have this latter disorder.

The bad news doesn’t end there, either. PCOS sufferers with Metabolic Syndrome are also at greater risk of developing Gestational Diabetes and have higher rates of liver, breast and colon cancer.

Only in recent years has Metabolic Syndrome undergone extensive scientific investigation. The medical community has made a dramatic change in the way it views and treats this condition after a growing body of evidence pointed to Insulin Resistance as an underlying cause of Metabolic Syndrome.

Insulin Resistance causes an imbalance of glucose and insulin levels, which impairs the vital process whereby glucose is converted into energy by passing through the cell wall via insulin.
The cell walls become densitized to insulin by Insulin Resistance, with the result that much glucose is denied access to the cell and, instead, free floats in the bloodstream, which takes it to the liver. Once there, the glucose is converted to fat and distributed around the body, where it can cause excess weight gain and lead to a variety of serious disorders, including PCOS, heart disease and certain forms of cancer.
Insulin Resistance also causes unhealthy levels of insulin in the body, which can lead to the onset of Pre- and Type 2 Diabetes, which, themselves, are increased risk factors for blindness, kidney disease and the need for amputation.

Information about PCOS and Syndrome XAt the present time, there is no single pill that will cure Metabolic Syndrome, just as there are no pharmaceutical drugs that will heal PCOS. But there are ways to address Insulin Resistance, an underlying cause of these conditions as well as PCOS symptoms. If you wish to return to optimum health, we feel you should consider a system that combines nutraceuticals (vitamins, herbs and minerals that are disease specific), a realistic exercise program, nutritional guidance, guidance on combating carbohydrate addiction and a support system that will help you change unhealthy lifestyle choices and lose weight.

The system features numerous formulations such as InsulX, which includes ingredients like appetite-reducing vanadium.

By decreasing testosterone, you're apt to reduce ovarian cysts and help re-establish the delicate balance of your hormones, thereby enhancing the likelihood of ovulation, without which there is no chance of becoming pregnant.

"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."

"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 weekly messages are also very encouraging, when I am finding things a bit harder. Thank you for everything."

"...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."
