Excess Calorie Consumption Leads to Bloated Bloodstreams

People in modern societies have succumbed to a pathological propensity of consuming excess calories throughout the day. The result of successive meal intakes is that our bloodstreams are chronically bloated with fats and sugars.

Bloated bloodstreams from excess sugar and fat calories produces lipemia—high levels of post-meal circulating triglycerides. This creates an internal environment characterized by inflammation, insulin resistance and a heightened risk for heart disease and diabetes.

Decompressing the circulatory system by managing the rate of sugar and fat absorption may help to reduce risk and improve health. The following steps may help to impede the excess absorption of unwanted calories:

A 60- to 90-day program using alpha-glucosidase inhibitors may help reverse many of the metabolic imbalances that are underlying causes of excess fat accumulation and increased vascular disease risk.
