Insulin Status Is Important Determinant Of Weight Reduction On Vascular Function

Featured on FOX News and CNN, Raspberry Ketone Get a Powerful Acai Boost for Super Quick Weight Reduction

Researcher prospectively followed 208 overweight or obese patients (BMI ?25 kg/m2) receiving medical/dietary (48 percent) or bariatric surgical (52 percent) weight loss treatment during a period of approximately one year. They measured plasma metabolic parameters and vascular endothelial function using ultrasound at baseline and following weight loss intervention, and stratified analyses by median plasma insulin levels. They found that individuals with higher baseline plasma insulin levels (above median >12 uIU/ml), who had greater than 10 percent weight loss had significantly improved brachial artery macro-vascular flow-mediated vasodilation and micro-vascular reactive hyperemia. In contrast, vascular function did not change significantly in the lower insulin group (?12 uIU/mL) despite similar degree of weight loss. In analyses using a five percent weight loss cut-point, only micro-vascular responses improved in the higher insulin group. “Our study has shown that insulin status is an important determinant of the positive effect of weight reduction on vascular function with hyperinsulinemic patients deriving the greatest benefit,” explained corresponding author Noyan Gokce, MD, FACC, associate professor of medicine at BUSM and Director of Echocardiography at BMC. “Reversal of insulin resistance and endothelial dysfunction may represent key therapeutic targets for cardiovascular risk reduction in obesity,” he added.

Raspberry ketone: The latest in fat reduction

By increasing its level, raspberry ketones help boost fat burning in the body. Raspberry ketones are compounds that are extracted from red raspberries and they have been approved by the FDA since 1965. They do not have any side effects and are considered to be quite safe. Though there are a lot of raspberry ketone pills in the market, one of the best ones is a highly powerful combination of raspberry ketones and acai berry. Ketone Ultra is a high potency pill that combines raspberry ketones with the power of acai berry, green tea, blueberries and pomegranates says a FatBurnSupplements.com spokesperson. Acai berry has been considered a superfruit and is highly recommended by health experts for reducing weight and improving overall health.

Stress Reduction and Mindful Eating Curb Weight Gain Among Overweight Women

They also measured secretion of cortisol shortly after awakening, a time when cortisol peaks in those under chronic stress. Cortisol secretion runs in a daily cycle and normally ramps up when we awaken. But secretion also is triggered by both real and perceived threats. If we wake up, anticipate the days events, and experience these thoughts as stressful, cortisol secretion may spike even higher,Daubenmiersaid. On Average, Mindful, Obese Women Did not Gain Weight in Study Among women in the treatment group, Garcinia Cambogia Extract changes in body awareness, chronic stress, cortisol secretion and abdominal fat were clearly linked. Those who had greater improvements in listening to their bodies cues, or greater reductions in stress or cortisol, experienced the greatest reductions in abdominal fat. Among the subset of obese women in the study, those who received the mindfulness training had significant reductions in cortisol after awakening and also maintained their total body weight, compared to women in the waitlist group, who had stable cortisol levels and continued to gain weight.

This so-called super hormone has been getting a lot of international attention It’s all over the internet, in blogs and people are swearing by the results. Earlier dissed as faff, now, there are research studies conducted on raspberry ketone that prove that it helps in reducing fat. But what is raspberry ketone, how does it work, these are a few questions on all our minds. We gives you the answers. Raspberry ketone “Raspberry ketone is the chemical compound found in red raspberries that produces the fruity aroma,” explains Gautham Madhavan, a nutritionist. This chemical has long been used in food and beverage flavouring, but has only recently been looked at for its potential health benefits. Unfortunately, the yield of raspberry ketone from the actual berry is low, making the product scarce and expensive.
