What is Metabolic Sedrome?
Metabolic Syndrome is a dangerous picture in which the factors that increase the possibility of serious diseases such as heart diseases, stroke, stroke, obesity and diabetes are combined. Insulin resistance is the basis of metabolic syndrome. Insulin resistance, on the other hand, is a condition in which insulin cannot enter the cell and transport glucose despite the body's secretion of insulin. In cases where the insulin effect is insufficient, the amount of fat in the blood and organs increases. Factors that increase insulin resistance are sedentary lifestyle and excess weight after high caloric intake. Early detection of metabolic syndrome in overweight individuals allows minimizing the damage of diabetes, blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases in the future of these patients. Regulation of lifestyle is the most prioritized and effective approach. Although the basic approach in the treatment of metabolic syndrome is to treat the different risks within the disease separately, it is essential to fight obesity and related insulin resistance, which is the common cause of all of them.
In addition to the regulation of lifestyle, the use of appropriate supplements provides support for the body's metabolic health protection. Glutathione, coenzyme Q10 and selenium are very powerful antioxidants. Glutathione and coenzyme Q10 are produced by the body, while selenium is taken from the diet.
Glutathione, which is of fundamental importance in the prevention of aging, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, dementia and many other chronic/degenerative diseases, consists of three amino acids, these are cysteine, glycine and glutamine amino acids.
Selenium participates in the structure of many enzymes in the body as an auxiliary molecule (cofactor). The thyroid gland plays a role in its functions and the tissue with the highest selenium concentration among body tissues is the thyroid gland.
Coenzyme Q10 is an important antioxidant produced by the body itself and involved in energy metabolism. Coenzyme Q10 can be synthesized in the body, or it can be taken from outside with dietary sources. The organs in which Coenzyme Q10 is mostly found in the body; organs with high metabolic rate such as heart, kidney and liver.
Good metabolic health is associated with a lower risk of developing chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
Maintaining adequate levels of important antioxidants such as glutathione, coenzyme Q10 and selenium can be beneficial for overall health and help prevent or manage metabolic disorders.
