Metabolic syndrome is called a set of disease agents when combined greatly increase the risk of chronic health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. The metabolic syndrome includes high blood pressure ( hypertension ), elevated blood sugar, increased fat accumulation in the abdomen and elevated cholesterol or triglycerides.
Metabolic syndrome is considered to be caused primarily by a diet rich in fat or carbohydrates. People with metabolic syndrome or with more than one risk factor for metabolic syndrome should adopt drastic changes in their daily habits to delay or avoid the complications that this entails. A hitherto unknown but decisive factor in the prevention or management of the metabolic syndrome is the adequacy of vitamin D in the body, according to a new study published in the journal Frontiers-In Physiology. Vitamin D is essential that the body can absorb calcium from food and ensure the proper development of the skeleton. The main source of vitamin D for humans is sunlight -n Vitamin D is produced when the skin is exposed to UV-rays, and further take a small amount of vitamin from certain foods or supplements. According to new findings, vitamin D can improve the parameters related to the metabolic syndrome, or even to act proactively in the event. This finding emerged when under experiments the researchers found that in order to develop the metabolic syndrome in mice must be present in the body lack of vitamin. Researchers estimate that something similar applies to people and hope to confirm this with similar studies in the future.
