Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that often accompany each other. These conditions include being overweight or obese, high cholesterol and triglycerides, low levels of protective HDL-cholesterol, high blood pressure, pro-inflammatory, prone to developing a blood clot, and being resistant to insulin. The complex of these conditions makes a person prone to developing coronary heart disease and diabetes.
43 patients with coronary artery disease and high cholesterol were placed on a statin drug to lower their LDL-cholesterol. The statin drug used was a generic version of Zocor (simvastatin) prescribed at a dosage of 20mg a day. Some of the patients were placed on 30mg of Coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E along with the statin.
Extracts from blueberries and strawberries could protect against the free radical damage to the brain seen with aging. They may even protect astronauts from the extreme radiation they encounter in space according to the results of this NASA (partially) funded study. Scientists at both Tufts University and the University of Maryland divided rats into three equal groups and supplemented two of the groups with either a 2% blueberry or a 2% strawberry extract for two months.
Ginkgo biloba is an anti-dementia drug. It enhances cognitive function and stabilizes mood in the cognitively impaired elderly. Ginkgo biloba has been found to relieve anxiety in people with mental decline.
This study included 2335 people with an average age of 64 who were originally included in a study from 1992 to 1994 and were examined again from 1997 to 1999. It was found that people who consumed fish once a week had a 40% decreased risk of developing early onset macular degeneration. If they consumed fish 3 times a week the protection was even greater with a 75% decreased risk of early onset macular damage.
