Metabolic Syndrome? One Wellness Place can help! 01/26/11

The Pharmacists at Scott’s Health Mart Pharmacy and One Wellness Place have developed a new product designed to help people with diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.  The One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsule is an all natural nutritional supplement designed to help promote healthy blood sugars, blood pressure, and cholesterol all of which, when high have been shown to increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

The pharmacists at Scott’s Health Mart Pharmacy designed the One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsules to help balance the risk factors for metabolic syndrome.

Syndrome X also known as metabolic syndrome is a collection of risk factors that when combined dramatically increase your risk for a heart attack, stroke, and Type II Diabetes.

The unique blend of ingredients in the One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsule addresses each Metabolic Syndrome factor helping to improve your health, increase your energy, and normalize many of the symptoms related to diabetes, blood pressure, and more.

Diabetes (high blood sugar) & One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsules

The One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsule contains two separate ingredients that have been shown to help promote healthy blood sugars.  Alpha Lipoic Acid is a water soluble anti – oxidant that has been shown to help improve insulin sensitivity.  Studies have also shown that Alpha Lipoic Acid can improve neuropathic pain.  Neuropathic pain is that burning, tingling, shooting type of pain that many people with diabetes experience on daily basis.

Another ingredient in the One Wellness Place Healthy Heart that has been shown to help promote healthy blood sugars is chromium.  Chromium is a micro nutrient that is found in our cells and it essential for proper insulin function.  Many people do not know but as much as 80% of the chromium in our food is lost during the refining process.  Studies have shown that chromium may help improve insulin sensitivity, decrease fasting blood sugars, as well as HbA1c in diabetic patients.

Remember you don’t actually have to be diagnosed with diabetes to have metabolic syndrome.  Fasting (at least 8 hours since your last meal) blood sugars of 126 or higher are diagnostic of diabetes, however, the criteria for metabolic syndrome is a fasting blood sugar of 100 or higher.

Hypertension (high blood pressure) & One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsules

Hypertension also known as the silent killer affects 1 out of every 3 adult Americans.  It is called the silent killer because many times individuals with high blood pressure will not notice any symptoms.

Blood Pressure

Despite not experiencing any symptoms high blood pressure can damage your heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and increase your risk for heart attacks and strokes.

The One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsule contains Co – Enzyme Q10, an anti – oxidant found in all of our cells with the highest concentration being found in our muscle and heart cells.  Numerous studies have shown the benefit of Co – Enzyme Q10 in congestive heart failure, blood pressure, as well as migraine headaches.   In one study 51% of the patients that took Co – Enzyme Q10 were able to discontinue between 1 and 3 of their blood pressure medications.

It is also important to remember that many medications can actually cause you to loose Co – Enzyme Q10.  Medications for blood pressure known as Beta – Blockers such as propranolol (Inderal), metoprolol (Toprol / Lopressor), and others and medications for cholesterol know as Statins such as simvastatin (Zocor), Lipitor, Crestor, and others all can cause a reduction in your body’s Co – Enzyme Q10.

Co – Enzyme Q10 also has shown a favorable effect on blood sugar in those patients that have high blood pressure and diabetes.

High Cholesterol & One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsules

Cholesterol is a waxy substance that is present in our bodies.  High levels of the substances can oxidize and clog our arteries which can increase ones risk for heart attacks and strokes.  There are different types of cholesterol and some cholesterol is actually good for you.

Cholesterol Range Good or Bad
Total Cholesterol Optimal – Less than 200 BAD
High – Greater than 240
LDL Optimal – Less than 100 BAD
High – Greater than 160
HDL Low – Less than 40 (men) GOOD
Low – Less than 50 (women)
Triglycerides Optimal – Less than 150 BAD
High – Greater than 200

Diabetics often times have high triglycerides which increases their chances of having a heart attack or stroke.  The One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsules contain chromium GTF a micro nutrient that has been shown to help promote healthy triglyceride levels especially in diabetics.

The One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsules also contain policosanol, an herbal product that has also been shown to help promote healthy cholesterol levels.

What else do The One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsules do?

One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsules also contain the active form of folic acid, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12.  These B Vitamins are involved in the conversion of food into energy and they help with nerve function.  These B Vitamins help promote normal homocysteine levels as well as they may help promote healthy blood vessel function in diabetic patients with nerve pain.

It is very important to remember that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) does not regulate nutritional supplements and the old saying, “Let the Buyer Beware” could not be more true then when dealing with nutritional supplements.  The One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsules are manufactured in FDA compliant laboratories and are manufactured with the highest level of ingredients.

Another issue that affects the nutritional supplement industry is that many times manufactures of certain products list the ingredients that are present in the product; however, the amount in the product is not high enough to elicit the desired response.  The pharmacist at Scott’s Health Mart Pharmacy have designed the One Wellness Place Healthy Capsules to deliver the same amount to vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that were researched to help promote healthy blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol and more.

So remember if you have any 2 of the conditions you should help protect your heart by stop by Scott’s Health Mart Pharmacy or visit us online at www.onewellnessplace.com and pick up a bottle of One Wellness Place Healthy Heart Capsules.
