So, maybe it’s not official yet. But the signs are there. And your doctor is on your back every time you see him.
All your numbers are creeping in the wrong direction. And you’re starting to hear the words metabolic syndrome, heart disease, and diabetes more often.
Blood sugar? Headed up. LDL cholesterol? Creeping higher too. Triglycerides? Climbing.
And your “good” cholesterol, HDL? It’s the one number you want to go UP, but it’s taking a nosedive.
Things aren’t looking great. But you CAN fight back before it’s too late. Because researchers have uncovered an all-natural tag team that could help with ALL of those risks.
Folks who have taken then dynamic duo saw significant improvements in their…
- blood sugar
- LDL cholesterol
- HDL cholesterol
- total cholesterol
And the best part is they are cheap, and you can pick them up just about anywhere. In fact, I was able to find both of them in my local grocery store.
Combo supports healthy blood sugar & cholesterol
The comprehensive meta-analysis crunched the data from five randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials.
In other words, they used the most reliable kinds of studies possible, or what experts refer to as the “gold standard” for medical research.
And what they uncovered was pretty incredible. The results these two natural therapies were delivering would have had them rushing through approvals if they were drugs. Of course, in that case, they’d have come with a hefty price tag too.
Lucky for us, they’re NOT drugs. Instead, they’re just two all-natural compounds anyone can get for literally pennies a day.
You might not be familiar with the herb’s proper names of berberine and silymarin. But you probably have heard of their more common names goldenseal and milk thistle.
Now, to be honest, when I read this study, I wasn’t entirely surprised. Because both of these nutrients on their own have ALREADY been shown to have BIG benefits for people battling to maintain healthy blood sugar or cholesterol.
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 when you put them together, something magic can happen.
Blood sugar and LDL dropped like a rock
In the study, the combination of berberine and silymarin worked just as you would hope and then some, starting with that all-important blood sugar.
On average, folks who took the combo enjoyed a 7.5 mg/dl plunge in fasting plasma glucose. Plus, they also saw major improvements in just about every important cholesterol measure too.
Incredibly, LDL levels plunged by almost 30 points. And HDL climbed by an impressive six points. And for a LOT of folks, that kind of movement is plenty to get their doctor off their back.
But the benefits didn’t end there. Triglycerides, which are often a far more dangerous risk factor than LDL, also fell by 28 points. And total cholesterol dropped by 25 points too.
The studies in the analysis used anywhere between 500 and 1,000 mg of berberine per day and 105-210 mg of silymarin daily. If you’re battling climbing cholesterol or blood sugar, talk to a naturopathic doctor about how much is right for you.
