elevated triglyceride levels. We are confident that clinical trials dedicated to evaluating D-tagatose in patients with moderately or highly elevated triglycerides will replicate or even improve on those results."

About Triglycerides

Triglycerides are one of the fats found in blood. The body converts any calories that are not immediately used into triglycerides and stores them in fat cells. The calories are either released by the liver and circulate in VLDL or are metabolized by fat and released as fatty acids. Between meals, when the body needs energy, hormones release the stored triglycerides from fat cells as free fatty acids for energy. In contrast, cholesterol, another type of fat found in the bloodstream, is used by the body to build cells and some types of hormones.

Scientists aren't exactly sure of the role that triglyceride plays in heart disease. However, they think it contributes to hardening of the arteries, which contributes to stroke, heart disease and heart attacks. High triglyceride levels are sometimes a symptom of conditions associated with heart disease such as obesity and metabolic syndrome, which is a condition associated with elevated glucose levels as well as too much fat around the waist, high blood pressure, high triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol.
