The term “Metabolic Syndrome” is sometimes used as a catch-all label to describe people who are overweight.
But it’s actually a group of conditions that can increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
Most people with metabolic syndrome share several common cardiovascular risk factors that commonly cluster together.
Metabolic syndrome occurs when a person has three or more of the following:
- High blood pressure (>130/85 mmHg)
- High blood sugar levels (fasting glucose >100 mg/dl)
- High triglyceride levels (≥1.7 mmol/L)
- Low HDL levels (good cholesterol (<1.30 -1.04 mmol/L)
- Overweight and Obesity
- Excess belly fat (waist circumference ≥35 – 40 inches)
Metabolic syndrome, sometimes called Syndrome X or insulin resistance syndrome, affects 47 million Americans and is marked by elevated blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess belly fat and unhealthy levels of either LDL (low-density lipoprotein, or ”bad” cholesterol) or triglycerides.
As mentioned, metabolic syndrome boosts your risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.
While all people with metabolic syndrome have insulin resistance, not all people with insulin resistance have metabolic syndrome.
The underlying causes of metabolic syndrome include obesity, physical inactivity, genetic factors, and aging.
Is metabolic syndrome inevitable? No!
Maintaining a healthy body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels reduce your risk for metabolic syndrome.
But, what’s most crucial is to maintain a healthy weight.

Why Almased Boosts Metabolism
The Almased Weight Loss Phenomenon™ is your best friend for super successful weight loss, but that’s not the end of the story.
What’s exciting about Almased is how it helps to boost metabolism so you can lose weight, tackle belly fat, and feel your energy levels soar with no stimulants and without hunger.
In 2004, a weight-loss study was conducted by Diebert and colleagues on 114 obese and pre-obese subjects. It showed that the Almased diet - without added exercise - produced a more significant weight loss and a greater decrease in fat than a conventional diet. Even better: All participants experienced improvements in healthy blood sugar and fat metabolism.
Further studies from the University of Edmonton in Canada, show that Almased even increases the basal metabolic rate in people with an average healthy weight if it is taken regularly from the first day on.

Almased provides support for the systems in your body that impact metabolism. Keeping your metabolism active will help you lose weight at a good pace while sustaining results once the diet is over.
