Research Links Ideal Protein with Reduced Healthcare Costs

Ideal Protein has now been linked to lowering your healthcare costs. As if you needed more reasons to give the Ideal Protein diet a try, right? A press release featured on Business Wire clearly states Ideal Protein, “has been shown to potentially reduce healthcare claims and improve key markers of cardiac and metabolic health, according to findings detailed in two poster presentations unveiled at ObesityWeek 2016 in New Orleans.” This means the Ideal Protein Protocol can potentially lower healthcare costs for payers dealing with the associated complications of obesity.

The obesity epidemic is increasing at an exponential rate, and with it comes proportionately high healthcare costs. This study produced a staggering statistic, “The price tag for overweight and obesity in America is estimated to range from $147 billion to nearly $210 billion per year in direct and non-direct medical costs, including surgery, medications, counseling, and cost for treating obesity-related complications.” That’s a lot of money being spent on a problem that is largely preventable. And that’s where Ideal Protein comes in.

20 patients with a BMI less than 35% took part in a 12 week study following the Ideal Protein Protocol. The study, called “Effect of a Ketogenic Diet on Advanced Lipid Profiles” was completed by 16 patients. The study yielded noticeable weight reduction in patients. Ideal Protein also positively impacted cholesterol abnormalities and significantly reduced glucose and triglyceride levels. You can read more about the studies done over at Business Wire.
