Breakthrough Medical Food for Diabetes and Heart Disease

Breakthrough Medical Food Reverses Risk of Heart Disease and Diabetes


One in 3 US adults meet the diagnostic criteria for metabolic syndrome, placing them at greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other chronic illnesses.

In a previous 12-week clinical study conducted by the Metagenics Functional Medicine Research Center
, 43% of subjects taking the ingredients in UltraMeal Plus 360° medical food along with a modified Mediterranean diet and exercise program demonstrated a resolution of metabolic syndrome compared to only 22% of the subjects on the diet and exercise alone.¹

To confirm these results, a recent 12-week, 2-arm randomized clinical trial was conducted at 3 universities and consisted of 89 women with elevated LDL cholesterol, elevated triglycerides, and 2 of the 4 remaining criteria for metabolic syndrome. Both arms followed a modified Mediterranean diet and maintained normal exercise. The medical food arm also consumed 2 servings of UltraMeal Plus 360° daily. Results demonstrated that 44.4% of subjects in the medical food arm had a resolution of metabolic syndrome vs. 31.8% of subjects in the control arm.²

The results of the multicenter clinical trial are being published in the May/June issue of the Journal of Clinical Lipidology.
