InsuMeal Complete is a medical food formulated to provide specialized, multi-mechanistic nutritional support for patients with metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease by supplying a combination of acacia extract, reduced iso-alpha acids (RIAA), plant sterols, and heart-healthy soy protein and isoflavones. In individuals with metabolic syndrome and high cholesterol, the ingredients in InsuMeal Complete along with a diet and exercise have been clinically shown in a preliminary study** to: Lower the apolipoprotein B-to-apolipoprotein A1 (apoB/apoA1) ratio
• Reduce total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglyceride levels
• Increase HDL cholesterol ("good" cholesterol) levels
Each serving of InsuMeal Complete provides:
• PharmaSoy®—a technologically advanced nutritional blend of superior soy protein, isoflavones, and dairy-free calcium.
• 2 g of plant sterols per serving. The NIH recommends consumption of 2 grams of plant sterols to promote healthy cholesterol levels. Foods containing at least 0.65 g per serving of plant esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3 g as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
• Selective kinase response modulators (SKRMs) in the form of RIAA and acacia extract, which have been clinically shown to improve fasting insulin and triglyceride levels.
• 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF)—a body-ready, nature-identical folate—to promote healthy homocysteine levels for cardiovascular health.
• Low-glycemic-index meal option to help support healthy insulin function and blood sugar levels.
• High-quality foundation nutrition for patients with cardiovascular disease.
