Diet Changes Improve Metabolic Syndrome

SALT LAKE CITY—Results of a large, third-party clinical study involving USANA Health Sciences Inc. products, conducted at the University of Colorado Denver (UCD), have been published in the August 2009 edition of Obesity and Weight Management.

The study confirms lifestyle change can significantly improve outcomes in subjects with metabolic syndrome. The 12-week long study was conducted with 60 people diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. Subjects followed an Internet-based lifestyle modification program that included USANA's nutritional supplements, moderate exercise and a low-glycemic diet, including USANA's nutritional shakes and bars.

Over the 12-week program, subjects in the study lost an average of 12 pounds and experienced significant improvements in measures of glycemic control, cardiovascular risk factors, inflammation and antioxidant status. By the end of the trial, one-third of the subjects no longer met the criteria for metabolic syndrome.

“We are thrilled with the results of this clinical study and are excited to see it published in Obesity and Weight Management,” said Tim Wood, USANA’s executive vice president of research and development. “It is gratifying to have independent confirmation that our products and approaches to healthy lifestyle management work.”
