Throwback Thursday: Metabolic LDL Clinical Study

Throwback Thursday: Metabolic LDL Clinical Study

In 2015, the team at the Hughes Center for Research and Innovation conducted a clinical study intended to examine the safety and efficacy of the Metabolic LDL formula. With Citrus bergamia Risso as the chief ingredient, amplified by nine other phytoextracts known to enhance its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities, this new formula featured potential benefits that our scientists were confident would be proven. The study would later be published in the Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology.


The Study

Eleven subjects between the ages of 38 and 65 were selected to participate in the study based upon their body mass index, low density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. All participants were instructed to take two capsules of Metabolic LDL with dinner each day for 12 weeks.

At the end of the 12-week period, the following significant changes were observed in all subjects:

7.3% reduction in total cholesterol
10% reduction in LDL-cholesterol
7.1% reduction in non-LDL cholesterol
26% reduction in cholesterol/HDL
2.8% reduction in apolipoprotein B

At the start of the study, eight of the 11 subjects had HbA1c levels of 5.4 or higher. These individuals experienced the following additional significant changes:

27% reduction in triglycerides
19% reduction in oxLDL
25% reduction in LDL/HDL
27% reduction in triglycerides/HDL
25% reduction in oxLDL/HDL
37% reduction in PAI-1

Study Results

The study concluded that Metabolic LDL “was clinically well-tolerated and effective… in subjects with moderate cardio metabolic risk factors, particularly in the individuals with HbA1c > 5.4%.””
Synergy Worldwide’s Metabolic LDL was developed to support healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular function by combining Citrus bergamia Risso extract with a proprietary blend of high-ORAC antioxidants. This unique and powerful herbal formula naturally supports cholesterol levels and oxidation, triglycerides, as well as blood sugar levels already in the normal range.

Cooking Tips for Heart Healthy Meals

Cooking Tips for Heart Healthy Meals

Cooking a heart healthy meal, or cooking in general, may seem like a frightening task to some, especially to those who tend to burn everything including toast. However, a study completed by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health states that the main ingredient in a healthier diet is cooking meals at home. By cooking at home you have control over your ingredients, your portion sizes, and the way that you cook your food.

A key to creating heart healthy meals is to cut down on cholesterol, fats, and salt found in many common ingredients. Create meals that keep your heart in mind by looking to these quick tips when dinnertime approaches.

Avoid Frying

Rather than deep frying or pan frying food, which causes ingredients to soak up unnecessary and unhealthy fats, look to these alternative options to keep the nutritional value of your ingredients intact:

Stir-frying. High temperatures destroy some nutrients when cooking, so by stir-frying foods rapidly at high temperatures, food (especially vegetables) retain more of their nutrients, and since the cooking happens quickly, the foods don’t retain as much oil as they would with conventional deep frying techniques.

Broiling.  Broiling is a popular choice to prepare healthy meals since it uses direct heat to cook the food and requires little to no oil in order to cook. Similarly, broiling methods melt the natural fat found in meat such as chicken or fish, and since most ovens have a broiling unit, it is a quick and reliable way to prepare meals.

Steaming. Unlike the options above, steaming is a form of cooking that requires no oil, which makes it much better for your heart since it avoids adding unnecessary fats. Steaming is also great for keeping the original form and taste as well as most of the original nutrition, especially in vegetables. For example, steamed broccoli retains 81% of its vitamin C as opposed to only 30% when cooked in water.  And since preparation for steaming is minimal, you can create a healthy meal in very little time.

Quick Tip: Try to keep your meals simple. In many cases, simple recipes and ingredients lead to healthier, more natural meals while more complicated recipes that involve extra ingredients and specialized cooking methods could potentially be taking away from your meal’s nutrition and your time.

‘Tis the Season 

Try to avoid prepackaged seasonings as they usually contain a lot of salt. Selecting fresh herbs and preparing hand-made seasonings may seem foreign to you now, but in the long-term, you’ll be saving money by doing the preparation yourself. Your heart will thank you for avoiding all the extra sodium found in store-bought packages.

Quick Tip: Use citrus juice, peppers, or vinegar to add an extra level of flavor to your dishes. But be sure to use these sparingly as to not overpower the overall flavor of the meal.

Make Substitutions

Using low or non-fat yogurt instead of sour cream cuts out unnecessary fats in your meal. In ½ a cup of yogurt, you’ll get double the calcium and cut out 4 grams of fat and 2 grams of saturated fat—a fat found in many store-bought foods that could be damaging to heart health over time.

Eliminating butter and replacing it with heart healthy olive oil can be incredibly beneficial to your arteries and overall heart health. Replacing one tablespoon of butter with one tablespoon of olive oil drops the fat content by 2 grams. Seven grams of unhealthy saturated fat will be replaced by 10 grams of heart healthy monounsaturated fats instead.

Make Extra

If you’re putting in the time and effort to prepare a heart healthy dish, don’t hesitate to go overboard. Making extra food gives you healthy snack options, as well as back-up meals in case you don’t feel like preparing something new after a long day. There’s nothing wrong with thinking ahead. This will help you create good habits that will keep your heart healthy and happy in the future.

Quick Tip: Making extra food is great, but just because you have extra food, doesn’t mean you need extra helpings. Set aside proper portions for snacks and meals by using small bags or plastic containers to stay organized and stay focused on eating until you are satisfied rather than eating until you are stuffed.

New Team Manager – Dan Hammer

New Team Manager – Dan Hammer

In January, Dan Hammer became Synergy North America’s newest Team Manager. We want to congratulate him on this milestone, and for his hard work and tireless dedication to Synergy WorldWide. This month is particularly fitting to celebrate a rising leader who has worked hard to share heart health education throughout his career.

Dan is a veteran in the health arena. With an extensive background in exercise physiology, he has devoted much of his life to pinpointing exactly what the body needs to function optimally. On a personal level, Dan has always looked for natural solutions to help him excel in his active lifestyle as a competitive soccer player. So, when Synergy introduced ProArgi-9+ in 2008, Dan was eager to try the formula and put it to the test.

On ProArgi-9+

“ProArgi-9+ made a significant difference in my athletic performance. I could immediately tell that it gave me greater endurance. I also had no soreness the next day after playing soccer, which was something I always experienced before. My wife also used it for her high blood pressure, and it made a huge difference for her. So, I decided to learn more about l-arginine and nitric oxide. And I started to create videos to help educate others on this remarkable product.
It’s an ideal product for every person. Everyone has an endothelium that lines their cardiovascular system. If you look at scientific research, nitric oxide is critical to cardiovascular health. The key is how to create interest to help people want to improve their health. So, instead of trying to sell ProArgi-9+, we decided to focus on educating people on Nitric Oxide Therapy and then let them know that our product of choice is ProArgi-9+.”

On Being a Part of Synergy WorldWide

“Pure and simple, it’s helping people improve their health. It’s what I’m passionate about. And I’m associated with a company that has products that truly help people improve their health. Products that are affordable and effective.”

On His Success

“It means that we’re beginning to have an impact. That our marketing efforts are beginning to create momentum. Now, it’s figuring out how to expand the effort and help our Team Members understand how to duplicate the message. That message is Nitric Oxide Therapy to address most cardiovascular health concerns, with our product of choice being ProArgi-9+.”

On the Legacy He Hopes to Leave

“Our legacy and our ‘why’ is The Million Lives Project. Synergy Worldwide has products that address the two major areas of need: cardiovascular health and gut health. Our legacy will be to help 1 million people, or more, understand how Nitric Oxide Therapy can naturally address most cardiovascular health concerns. And for those with other forms of health distress or weight management issues, how changing their gut health can help them improve their wellbeing and live a more vibrant life.”

Dane Iorg – Presidential Executive

“It’s extremely hard to find a more devoted Synergy Team Member than Dan.” “I want to congratulate Dan on achieving the rank of Team Manager. First and foremost, Dan is a kind and compassionate person. Dan is also a hard worker and daily puts in the time it takes to become a successful Synergy distributor.

Dan is passionate about health and he knows the science behind Synergy’s products. The truth is this— if Dan didn’t think Synergy’s products were of the highest standards in the industry, he wouldn’t be a distributor with Synergy. Dan’s integrity is what is most important to him, and when he says something, it is what he believes. Dan’s opinions are not idle opinions because one of Dan’s passions is learning as much as he can about health. Anyone who knows Dan, knows that he is highly educated in the field of health and nutrition.

Dan’s goal is to continue to build a robust and successful Synergy business. The remarkable thing about Dan is that he wants everyone else to do the same. It’s extremely hard to find a more devoted Synergy Team Member than Dan.”

Robert Wischmeier – Team Leader

“He is spoken of across the Synergy world with respect and appreciation. He has earned that reputation.” “I’ve been associated with Dan for many years. Years ago he took a course on ‘Branding Yourself,’ and made the decision to create a YouTube presence on health issues, using Nitric Oxide Therapy as an initial concept. He has always used that language, Nitric Oxide Therapy, when teaching or leading discussions. He leads with NO and uses ProArgi-9+ as his ‘product of choice.’ It was a brilliant concept and has proven itself over and over. We all do this now. To date he has hundreds of YouTube videos and has certainly branded himself.

His follow-up is outstanding, and the support he lends to his downline and customer base is enviable. It was Dan who spoke to the enormous value of creating a customer base years ago, proving that his vision and insight are spot on.

I believe that Synergy Worldwide is a better company because of him. He has provided resources that he made available to everyone in the organization, not just his downline. He is spoken of across the Synergy world with respect and appreciation. He has earned that reputation.”

1 Metabolic LDL
Synergy’s newest product, Metabolic LDL, contains a powerful main ingredient, Citrus bergamia Risso extract, and a proprietary blend of high-ORAC antioxidants that help to support total cholesterol and triglyceride levels, as well as blood sugar levels. Watch the Metabolic LDL video, HERE.

Metabolic LDL was the focus of a 12-week clinical study published in the Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology! View the clinical study, HERE.

1 Omega-3
Omega-3 fatty acids have long been touted for their powerful cardiovascular support. Your body does not produce omega-3 fatty acids on its own, so they must be delivered through diet and/or supplementation. Made from fish oil, but without the fishy taste, Omega-3 promotes healthy circulatory function.

2 ProArgi-9+
Synergy’s flagship product, ProArgi-9+, has been clinically-proven to increase nitric oxide production in the body, which is an essential amino acid that helps blood vessels relax, therefore, increasing circulation.
