United States, 11th Jan 2023 – The meeting between MAGISNAT, an innovative Italian-American spin-off (www.magisnat.com), and the committee of the Fondazione Policlinico Agostino Gemelli IRCCS (Rome, Italy) continue being made also in 2023. In this first week of January, a highly relevant and topical subject was addressed: “The Effects of the Mediterranean Diet on the Components of Metabolic Syndrome” (https://www.jpmh.org/index.php/jpmh/article/view/2747).
Unfortunately, the metabolic syndrome—also known as syndrome X or insulin resistance syndrome—is a complex health problem that is gaining considerable momentum globally and raising concerns among the health communities, particularly the World Health Organization, the American Heart Association, and the International Diabetes Federation.
For a better understanding of this condition, it is best to explain that it is characterized by visceral obesity (its main diagnostic criterion), insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and high blood pressure.
Thus, it is not difficult to understand that diet and nutrition are among the first factors that can influence the occurrence of this syndrome. For example, a Western-style diet is associated with an increased risk of manifesting this syndrome, whereas Nordic and Mediterranean diets are potentially beneficial.
It is precisely on the Mediterranean diet that the discussion between MAGISNAT and the Policlinico Agostino Gemelli IRCCS Foundation committee focused, specifically on how it can affect the components of metabolic syndrome.
Thanks to its high content of dietary fiber, omega 3 and 9 fatty acids, complex carbohydrates, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and bioactive substances (such as polyphenols), it has been shown that the Mediterranean diet can help fight obesity, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and diabetes mellitus and, consequently, metabolic syndrome.
But it also emerged that it is not just the diet that makes the difference, but the combination of diet, physical activity and positive social relationships—the pillars of the Mediterranean lifestyle.
The importance of practicing physical activity to be healthy and to prevent the onset of certain diseases has also been emphasized by the WHO, which suggests at least 150 minutes/week of moderate-intensity physical activity for adults.
Moreover, social activities positively affect one’s mood. Depression and anxiety are linked to many diseases, higher food intake, and lower physical activity, which precisely are risk factors also for metabolic syndrome. In addition, chronic melancholy can cause inflammation and oxidative stress, and thus be related to metabolic syndrome.
Unfortunately, today’s fast-paced society does not allow this lifestyle to be followed accurately, so MAGISNAT has sought a solution that allows people to make up for any vitamin deficiencies with the use of its supplements, GARLIVE Recovery (https://www.amazon.com/Garlive-Recovery-Supplement-Hydroxytyrosol-Vitamins/dp/B0B4T82ZLV?ref_=ast_sto_dp) and GARLIVE Oral Spray (https://www.amazon.com/Garlive-Dietary-Supplement-Hydroxytyrosol-Support/dp/B0B4T7YZ9Z?ref_=ast_sto_dp), which are available on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/garlive).
The strength of these products comes from their concentrated formula, meaning they contain more polyphenols than two cups of extra virgin olive oil. In addition, GARLIVE Recovery also contains high dosages of vitamins—among them, for example, B, C, D vitamins (one tablet contains more vitamins than 14 ounces of fruit).
A practical and innovative solution, bringing well-being to people’s bodies and preventing the onset of certain diseases.
