Metabolix™ AMPK is an orthomolecular combination of ingredients that together contribute to AMPK activation with beneficial effects in Metabolic Syndrome.
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a cluster of health problems created by insulin resistance (IR) which include: fat accumulation (especially around the waist), high blood pressure, high triglycerides (blood lipids level), high blood sugar, and low “good” cholesterol (HDL). Together, they result in accelerated aging and an increased risk of coronary artery disease events such as heart attack, stroke, and diabetes.
The good news is that apart from diet and exercise, scientific research has recently discovered that the enzyme 5′-AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) has a major role in the regulation of cellular lipid and protein metabolism. AMPK regulates glucose transport, lipid and protein synthesis, and fuel metabolism as well as other factors that have been linked to insulin resistance.
