What is Prediabetes & Metabolic Syndrome?
Prediabetes is a condition where glucose levels (blood sugar) are higher than normal and, if left untreated, can have damaging effects to your body and eventually result in Type 2 diabetes (T2D). Higher blood sugar levels causes the pancreas to produce more insulin to try and normalize the blood sugar levels. If the body continuously produces excess insulin, eventually, “insulin resistance” occurs, which means the insulin is no longer as effective as it once was and the cells are no longer receiving the glucose. This eventually leads to T2D. This is a growing condition that many aren’t too familiar with. In the United States alone, 86 million people (approximately 37% of the US population) have prediabetes. If a person has prediabetes, it is not too late. However, if left untreated, prediabetes can eventually evolve into T2D during - which in most cases - is irreversible.
Prediabetes can result in other conditions, especially those related to heart disease. It is accompanied by an imbalance between ‘good’ cholesterol (HDL-C) and ‘bad’ cholesterol (LDL-C), a contributing factor to the onset of metabolic syndrome (MetS), a prediabetes equivalent. Defined by a series of conditions which include increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, high body fat and irregular cholesterol and triglyceride levels, MetS is closely linked to heart disease, stroke and diabetes. People who have metabolic syndrome typically have apple-shaped bodies, meaning they have larger waists and carry a lot of weight around their abdomens. It's thought that having a pear-shaped body —carrying more weight around the hips and having a narrower waist — doesn't increase your risk of diabetes, heart disease and other complications of metabolic syndrome.

How PreDia® can help
PreDia works by controlling the presence of glucose (sugar) in the blood either by delaying or reverting the onset of impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), which classifies the prediabetic condition. PreDia’s main function revolves around Abscisic acid (ABA) contained in its Grape Seed extract ingredient. Our unique and patent pending dosage of ABA significantly reduces fasting glycemia and glycated hemoglobin and also the glycemic profile after a meal (which means causing glucose in the blood). In other words, PreDia helps reduce the glucose in the blood independent of insulin (where normally it is needed to reduce the blood sugar). By doing this, not only is insulin saved, but the pancreas no longer produces excess insulin, thus preventing insulin resistance. Studies have confirmed this by showing that the dose of ABA contained in PreDia can replace the insulin action by stimulating the skeletal muscle glucose uptake. The ability of saving insulin secretion to control glycemia represents the most important function of PreDia.*
