Fight diabetes and metabolic syndrome with resveratrol and ...
As you may know, I'm a huge fan of resveratrol. This powerful supplement fights everything from cancer to heart disease to diabetes. But now there's another nutrient you can take with resveratrol that will really help fight diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
While diabetes is a huge problem, metabolic syndrome is fast becoming an even bigger problem. More and more people suffer from metabolic syndrome - and many of them will eventually develop diabetes. And diabetes contributes to both heart disease and cancer. So beating metabolic syndrome before it becomes diabetes can help you escape a lot of health problems down the road.
So what is this nutrient that fights metabolic syndrome? It's quercetin. And like resveratrol, this powerful bioflavonoid significantly reduces the risk factors for metabolic syndrome in obese rats.
In a recent study, researchers gave a daily dose of quercetin (2 or 10 mg/kg of body weight) or a control to both obese rats and their lean littermates. The study lasted 10 weeks.

The obese rats had induced higher blood pressure, high plasma concentrations of triglycerides, total cholesterol, and insulin. Both doses of quercetin reduced these symptoms.
Furthermore, the higher dose eliminated obesity-induced inflammation, and not in the controls. The higher dosage reduced other various markers of inflammation as well.
Here's another silver bullet for you if you are dealing with metabolic syndrome or diabetes. If you're at risk for either of these problems, take plenty of resveratrol and quercetin to keep the symptoms at bay. For quercetin, I suggest 100-250 mg, one to three times daily. You can find it at any health food store. But you'll also find it included in Advanced Bionutritionals Resveratrol Formula. So you can get both in one powerful product.
Yours for better health and medical freedom,
