Metabolic Syndrome


Metabolic syndrome is a group of conditions that together raise your risk of coronary heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and other serious health problems. Metabolic syndrome is also called insulin resistance syndrome.

You may have metabolic syndrome if you have three or more of the following conditions:

A large waistline: This is also called abdominal obesity or "having an apple shape." Extra fat in your stomach area is a bigger risk factor for heart disease than extra fat in other parts of your body.

High blood pressure: If your blood pressure rises and stays high for a long time, it can damage your heart and blood vessels. High blood pressure can also cause plaque, a waxy substance, to build up in your arteries. Plaque can cause heart and blood vessel diseases such as heart attack or stroke.

High blood sugar levels: This can damage your blood vessels and raise your risk of getting blood clots. Blood clots can cause heart and blood vessel diseases.

High blood triglycerides: Triglycerides are a type of fat found in your blood. High levels of triglycerides can raise your levels of LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein)cholesterol. This raises your risk of heart disease.

HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) cholesterol levels are important for heart health. So called ‘Good’ HDL cholesterol can help reduce levels of LDL cholesterol from your blood vessels.

This important study suggests a combination of Black Seeds and Turmeric/Curcumin can have a beneficial effect on a number of health issues - including Metabolic Syndrome: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25847554/

Conclusion of this study:

Black seeds and Turmeric/Curcumin showed improvement in all parameters of metabolic syndrome, when co-administered (i.e. taken together) at 60% of doses of individual herbs (i.e. taken separately), providing enhanced efficacy and negligible adverse-effects.The combination of Black seeds and Turmeric/Curcumin can therefore be recommended with lifestyle modification as a starting point for patients with Metabolic Syndrome to halt its future complications and progression’.
