We report a case of a 65-year-old patient with hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and hyperuricemia, who showed an improvement in lifestyle-induced metabolic syndrome on the administration of 7.5 g of Kangen-karyu extract per day for 6 months. The levels of serum total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, and triglycerides were decreased. The systolic/diastolic blood pressure was decreased following administration. Other parameters such as estimated glomerular filtration rate, creatinine, uric acid, aspartate transaminase, alanine aminotransferase, γ-glutamyl transpeptidase, and creatine phosphokinase were improved by the administration of Kangen-karyu extract. At that time, the physical and subjective symptoms had partially disappeared. We present evidence supporting the use of Kangen-karyu extract against metabolic syndrome.
