Diabetes is a condition that occurs when the body cannot regulate the level of glucose, resulting in too much glucose in the blood. Glucose is regulated by insulin, a hormone made in the pancreas that enables cells to absorb and use glucose. Type 1 Diabetes develops when the pancreas stops producing insulin. Type 2 Diabetes is when insulin is produced, but the bodies have become insulin resistant. This condition is worsened when people carry excessive body fat. Without sufficient levels of insulin, glucose from the blood can’t get to the cells to be used for fuel. According to data collected from the 2007 National Diabetes Fact Sheet and the American Diabetes Association, “23.6 million children and adults in the United States—7.8% of the population—have diabetes. Diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death listed on U.S. death certificates in 2006.” Diabetes can be prevented or delayed through a healthy lifestyle and weight management.
Syntra-5 hopes to aid in the fight against Diabetes. This product claims to naturally lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, along with leading to overall weight reduction. The herbal combination of garcinia combogia, cinnamon, bitter melon extract, and other vitamins and minerals that will assist in the secretion of insulin, the transport of glucose, and aid in weight loss. The idea is that your body will feel fuller faster so you ingest less food. Syntra-5 also claims to help convert food into energy instead of fat.
Syntra-5 claims lots of impressive results from people who have used and found success with their product. The results stem from a “large-scale, randomized, placebo-controlled human clinical trial conducted at an independent lab.” The results of this trial concluded that within 90 days every participant saw a significant drop in their fasting blood glucose levels to within a healthy range. Participants also lowered their A1c levels (glycated hemoglobin, the average amount of glucose in the blood). “The overall result of the test, reported by the researchers, was that Syntra-5 is a very safe and effective product for the management of diabetes 1.” I’m curious to see how many people were included in the randomized, independent study that provides the bulk of the scientific validity of Syntra-5. The results boast successful stats, but what is the actual number? It sounds great to say “25% of all participants felt better after 90 days” but if there were only 4 people in the whole study, that’s only one person.
A one-month supply of Syntra-5 costs $59.95. The website offers a 15-day trial, where they send you a one-month supply and if you continue beyond 15 days they will charge your credit card. The website is loaded with testimonials of people who have used the product and found amazing results. But then again, I don’t think I’ve ever visited a website that included bad reviews of their product. That would just be bad marketing. But there seem to be plenty of people who have used Syntra-5 and find it to be effective in both controlling blood sugar levels and helping with weight loss, which further helps with Diabetes management. Syntra-5 also claims to lower cholesterol, tri-glycerides, and blood pressure levels. For such a serious, life-threatening condition as Diabetes, I wouldn’t be opposed to trying something that is both natural and cost effective. I guess the real test is to see the long-term results with those who regularly take Syntra-5.
