Do dairy products reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome ?

metabolic syndrome

This review investigated recent meta-analyses and clinical studies on the association between the consumption of dairy products and Metabolic Syndrome risk factors.

Findings demonstrate that weight loss related to dairy product intake is mainly due to the combination of an energy-restricted diet and the consumption of dairy products. A limited number of studies have shown a beneficial effect on plasma insulin levels without modifying plasma glucose levels.

The consumption of dairy products has little effect on plasma lipid profile in patients with MetS. Some authors showed a positive effect on the inflammatory and oxidative stress profiles. Overall, this review article suggests the recommended consumption of dairy products should be at least 2-3 servings of per day within a well-balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
