“Atherosclerosis and Purified Omega 7″

In this 4-minute video, Dr. Michael F. Roizen, Chairman of the Wellness Institute of The Cleveland Clinic, talks about atherosclerosis, its causes and consequences: heart disease, stroke, memory loss, impotence, and wrinkling.

Dr. Roizen shares how purified Omega 7 (palmitoleic acid) can potentially help in the fight against diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and atherosclerosis. This is exciting news because Purified Omega 7 “antagonizes” all three because it has been shown to decrease insulin resistance, decrease hepatic fat accumulation, and decrease acute and chronic inflammation – with no known side effects.

To conclude, Dr. Roizen puts purified Omega 7 into perspective: “This could have a huge benefit for our populations as a whole because metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and diabetes are big things we need to tackle for us to be more competitive for jobs, and the United States to be more competitive as a society.”

“A medical breakthrough you should know about”

Dr-MikeBy Drs. Oz & Roizen, the “You Docs” (Excerpted from “Four Medical Breakthroughs you should know about”)

Recently, we were totally blown away by four medical breakthroughs we think you should know about.

Purified Omega 7

“Omega-7 fatty acids found in purified palmitoleic acid have amazing powers too!”

The “new” good fat: You’ve already heard plenty about DHA, the great-for-you omega-3 fatty acid in fatty fish and algae or fish-oil capsules. Now, research from Harvard Medical School, the Cleveland Clinic (where Dr. Mike is Chief Wellness Officer) and universities in Hawaii and Japan revealed that Omega-7 fatty acids found in purified palmitoleic acid have amazing powers too!

Our take: Take 200 milligrams of purified omega-7 in capsule form along with 900 milligrams of DHA daily.
