Atherosclerosis and Aging — Insights Into the Role...

I like this article (from Today’s Geriatric Medicine, by Joel Kahn, MD), because it explains why the health of the endothelial glycocalyx is so essential to vascular health, how nutrition and plant foods play an important role, and how Arterosil (glycocalyx regenerating compounds supplement) can be used help restore and maintain a healthy endothelial glycocalyx. Two important excerpts from this article:...

Clinical Application of Bergamot (Citrus bergamia)...

I’ve added the highest potency bergamot supplement — Bergamet Pro+ — to my supplement dispensary for cardiovascular health. Bergamet Pro+ contains the extract of the “super fruit,” bergamot, a citrus fruit grown in Southern Italy. Integrative cardiologists are using Bergamet Pro+ with patients, sometimes as a standalone supplement, other times in conjunction with statins, often enabling them to...

Glycocalyx: Breakthrough in Cardiovascular Medicin...

The focus of cardiovascular medicine is shifting from the contents of the lumen of the blood vessels to the condition of the arterial wall. The condition of the arterial wall is directly dependent on the glycocalyx, a microscopic anti-adhesive lining of the arterial wall, recently discovered by scientists. The endothelial glycocalyx is a micro-thin protective gel lining on interior of our blood vessels. It’s...

COVID-19 is, in the end, an endothelial disease

Excerpt: “This essay explores the hypothesis that COVID-19, particularly in the later complicated stages, represents an endothelial disease. Cytokines, protein pro-inflammatory mediators, serve as key danger signals that shift endothelial functions from the homeostatic into the defensive mode. The endgame of COVID-19 usually involves a cytokine storm, a phlogistic phenomenon fed by well-understood positive feedback...

MegaSporeBiotic Lowers High Triglyceride Levels, S...

Study Highlights Efficacy of MegaSporeBiotic in Reducing Serum Triglyceride Levels Bacillus spore-based probiotics are gaining popularity due to their safety, survivability, and capacity to modulate the gut microbiome. Research continues to highlight the role of MegaSporeBiotic in supporting human health outcomes. Approximately 1/3 of the population has elevated triglyceride levels (>150 mg/dL) in the bloodstream, or...
