Body clock drug protects against metabolic syndrome in mice
A compound enriched in citrus peels strengthens the body clock and protects against metabolic syndrome in mice, according to a study. Metabolic syndrome strikes about a third of the adults in the United States and involves multiple risk factors for heart disease and other health issues. A body of research shows that people with metabolic disease often have weaker body clocks. The body clock is also called the circadian clock.
