You’re not sick. Not yet, at least. But your doc warns that you’re getting there fast as all your numbers head in the wrong direction.
Blood sugar? UP!
LDL cholesterol? UP!
Triglycerides? UP, UP, UP!!!
And in the final indignity, the one thing you WANT up goes DOWN as your levels of the HDL (“good”) cholesterol plunge.
You’re facing metabolic syndrome… heart disease… diabetes… and even DEATH.
But you can fight back before it’s too late. Because new research reveals an all-natural combo that can help with all of those big-time risk factors.
Down this duo yourself, and you can enjoy quick and easy improvements in:
- blood sugar
- total cholesterol
- HDL cholesterol
- LDL cholesterol
The best part? You can get these two all-natural therapies just about anywhere.
Potent combo supports heart & metabolism health
This new report is a meta-analysis of five randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials… also known as the “gold standard” of medical research.
If these were drugs, they’d be SPEEDING toward approval, then slapped with a HUGE price tag given all of those incredible benefits.
But they’re not drugs.
Instead, they’re just two all-natural compounds anyone can get for pennies: berberine and silymarin, aka goldenseal and milk thistle.
Now, to be clear, it’s not a big shock that either of these is terrific.
Each on its own is already known to pack significant benefits.
Some folks with diabetes and pre-diabetes already depend on berberine for blood sugar support. And silymarin is terrific for cholesterol as well as blood sugar.
But put them together… and that’s when the REAL magic happens.
Blood sugar & cholesterol plummeted
In the new study, the combo worked in every way you’d hope and then some, starting with that all-important glucose control.
On average, folks who took the combo enjoyed a 7.5 mg/dl drop in fasting plasma glucose.
Then, they also saw major benefits in just about every important cholesterol measure.
LDL levels plunged by nearly 30 points, while HDL shot up by 6. The “bad” goes down, and the “good” goes up. You know I don’t like to get TOO hung up in the numbers alone, but those are BOTH the right directions.
Triglycerides are often a far more dangerous risk factor – and they fell by 28 points, while total cholesterol dropped by 25.
The studies in the analysis used between 500 and 1,000 mg of berberine per day and 105-210 mg of silymarin daily. If you’re battling cholesterol and glucose problems (and who isn’t?), then talk to your doc about how much is right for you.
