What is The Metabolic Syndrome?

The “Metabolic Syndrome” is rapidly emerging as the major cause of accelerated aging, loss of productivity and premature death in the advanced world. More than 85 million Americans appear to be suffering from Metabolic Syndrome, which is associated with the following diseases, conditions or risk factors:

  • Overweight disorders & obesity

  • High Blood pressure

  • High cholesterol and triglyceride levels

  • High blood sugar (pre-diabetes)

  • Type 2 diabetes

  • Cardiovascular Disease (heart attack & stroke)

  • Certain cancers (breast, endometrial, prostate and colon)

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Kidney disease

  • Gallbladder and liver disease

Many individuals with the Metabolic Syndrome also suffer from stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia and sleep apnea.

How Does Amino Acid Deficiency Lead To The Metabolic Syndrome?

Dr. Scheele’s breakthrough discoveries over the past 30 years showed how a deficiency in essential amino acids in the diet decreased positive-charged proteins that led to an imbalance in metabolic health resulting in the Metabolic Syndrome.

Power Amino Acids® rapidly correct protein deficiency by supplying essential amino acids that the human body does not produce. As essential nutrients Power Amino Acids® restore protein health between positive-charged and negative-charged proteins.

By correcting the deficiencies in amino acids, proteins and metabolic pathways, Power Amino Acids® have been shown to restore the metabolic health that is necessary to combat the Metabolic Syndrome.

What Are Power Amino Acids and How Do They Work?

Power Amino Acids® include the 9 essential amino acids and the 3 positive charged amino acids that humans cannot produce.

Power Amino Acids® make up for the deficiency of essential amino acids in the food chain during poor nutrition and/or aging. Power Amino Acids® close the food chain gap, rebalance protein health between positive-charged and negative-charged proteins, correct “Protein Deficiency Syndrome” and supercharge core body health, which combats the chronic degenerative diseases that are associated with the Metabolic Syndrome.

Thus, Power Amino Acids® appear to be the most important dietary supplements to maintain core body health and are essential in maximizing the effects of other dietary supplements, e.g. vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Factor4 Nutritional Facts

Protein Health and Body Weight

"Impairments in protein health may result in serious disease states, including overweight disorders, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, Type II diabetes, characterized by numerous risk factors and symptoms of premature aging." - Dr. Scheele

Healthy cells contain proteins that span the entire charge spectrum, from negative-charged proteins to positive-charged proteins. This may be easily demonstrated by spreading the proteins out on a 2-dimension (2D) gel as seen in the following diagram.

The Importance of Power Amino Acids™ in Protein Health

A: Protein Health
Normal Protein Pattern
Figure 1
B: Protein Deficiency
Positive Charged Proteins Reduced by 90%
Figure 1
C: CORRECTION with Factor4 Weight Control™
Return to Normal Protein Pattern
Figure 1

The yellow and red triangles shown at the top of the gels show the gradients of positive (red) and negative (yellow) charges that reside in the proteins. Thus, proteins at the far right in the 2D gel contain mostly positive-charged amino acids and very few negative-charged amino acids. In contrast, proteins at the far left in the 2D gel contain mostly negative-charged amino acids and very few positive charged amino acids.

Figure A shows a 2D gel demonstrating 10 proteins (round black spots) separated according to charge (horizontal axis) and size (vertical axis). Each protein has a distinct specific function that is necessary to ensure the health of cell, organ or tissue. Because the functions of proteins are complementary, the entire set of proteins are required to ensure “protein health” in a given organ or tissue. The pattern of protein health shown in Figure A represents a “healthy tissue.”

Under conditions of protein deficiency or partial protein deficient states, positive-charged proteins suffer at the expense of negative-charged proteins as seen in Figure B. The synthesis of negative-charged proteins continue but the synthesis of positive-charged proteins is greatly diminished to levels that are more than 90% diminished from levels observed in health. Thus positive-charged proteins show up at levels that are less than 10% of the levels observed in health. These changes in protein health result in serious impairments in cellular function. In fact the impairments in protein health may result in serious disease states, including overweight disorders, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, Type II diabetes, characterized by numerous risk factors and symptoms of premature aging.

The Power Amino Acids™ contained in Factor4 Weight Control™ provide the critical nutritional elements that correct the protein deficiency observed in Figure B. When corrected by Factor4 Weight Control™ the pattern of protein health returns to that seen in Figure C (compare Figure C to A).

Metabolic Syndrome appears to be caused by dietary excesses in refined sugars and complex carbohydrates that lead to hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinism and insulin resistance. Factor4 containing Power Amino Acids® generate supercharged protein health which curbs abnormalities in carbohydrate metabolism that lead to metabolic diseases associated with the Metabolic Syndrome. Careful management of carbohydrate metabolism with Power Amino Acids prevents and treats the diseases associated with Metabolic Syndrome.

Power Amino Acids® stimulate weight loss and sustained weight control through appetite suppression, increased energy and loss of body fat. In a randomized controlled clinical study, 96% of subjects lost weight within 3 months and continued to loss weight over the 12 month study. At the end of the 12 month trial the average weight loss amounted to 33 pounds or 16.2% of initial body weight.

Compared to four popular diet plans Factor4 Weight Control®, containing Power Amino Acids® shows superior weight loss performance as shown below:
