Functional Foods for Metabolic Syndrome Disorders

Functional foods in the United States is a relatively new terminology; although their use has exceeded millennia and are currently in use in the United States.  Metabolic disorders are some of the most common illnesses that plaque the US and the world.  These disorders include overweight and obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancers.

This session will explore the use of two specific functional foods and their impact on metabolic disorders; specifically:  Bacillopeptidase F Proprietary Blend (BFPB) and Rice Bran Arabinoxylan Complex. (RBAC) has been shown in a small clinical trial to affect positively certain biomarkers that are found in metabolic disorders.  These biomarkers include: HgBA1c, fibrinogen, hS-CRP, total Cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, LDL- cholesterol, triglycerides and more.

RBAC and BFPB have also been studied for their ability to play an active role in immunomodulation of our immune systems.  A review of these studies will also be included.

Learning Objective 1: 
To be able to identify readily available biomarkers to assess and follow-up treatment in varied patient groups.

Learning Objective 2: 
Understand the uses of both BFPB and RBAC in the clinical setting to optimize patient care.

Learning Objective 3:
Understand the Uses of functional foods historically and their uses in modern-day clinical care.
