The effects of modulating inflammation in the management of insulin resistance and Metabolic Syndrome

Due to the role of inflammatory cytokines in blocking the PI3K insulin signalling pathway, therapies that modulate inflammation are showing great promise in the management of insulin resistance and Metabolic Syndrome.  The herb hops and Acacia arabica (acacia), modulate inflammatory signaling pathways implicated in insulin resistance and Metabolic Syndrome. A blinded placebo controlled study in 91 Metabolic Syndrome patients over 12 weeks has found this blend of hops and acacia was associated with a 39.1% reduction of fasting insulin, compared to an increase of 5.7% in controls. Also, fasting triglycerides decreased by 22.4% compared to an increase of 6% in controls.
