Researchers at MIT have created a new pill that could make a “giant” pill for use by people who are overweight or obese.
The pill has been designed to reduce blood pressure by 10 millilitres and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke by 10%.
It also has the ability to decrease the risk for type 2 diabetes, and may be a better choice for people who do not yet have diabetes.
“It’s about taking a pill that you can take without getting too sick,” says Dr Daniel D’Angelo, a professor of medicine at MIT and the lead author of the study.
“There are a lot of drugs that have to be taken before you can start taking them, and so this pill is a very low-cost alternative that is safe to take, and it’s also a good way to have a very high-quality pill, because you have a lot more pill in it than with a normal pill.”
In the trial, the pill was made from the same kind of polysaccharide pill used to make pills like Pringles, which is made from a mixture of cellulose and starch.
“You can make a Pringle with about 50 millilitre of glucose and a lot less than that with a sugar pill, and that’s why we did this study,” Dr D’Alo explains.
The researchers have been working on a pill for around a year, and they have been looking for a pill with similar properties to what they have.
“We’ve been searching for a polysacchylenetetraenoic acid (Pse) pill for about five years,” Dr Giorgio Filippi, a co-author of the paper, says.
“The reason why we’re looking for this is that we’re really interested in the way that the PSE pill works, and we wanted to find a pill to be that way.”
I think the idea that we came up with was to make this pill with Pse in it, so we could be able to make these pills in a very short time.
“It’s still not clear how much Pse is present in the pill, but the researchers say that it would likely be enough to prevent the production of Pse, which could be very beneficial for people with type 2 and type 1 diabetes.
They found that Pse could have up to 50% reduction in blood pressure, and their research suggests that it could be possible to increase the Pse content in the pills to about 40% to increase their effect.
Dr D’Alto and his team are working on developing a pill, which they hope will be commercially available in around three years time.”

“In a study like this, it’s very important to know what you’re taking, because the pills we’re making are really cheap and they can be very effective,” he said.
“If you can understand the way the pill works and can make it a little more palatable for people, then it’s really a good option for them.”
