Glycocalyx: Breakthrough in Cardiovascular Medicine

Glycocalyx: Breakthrough in Cardiovascular Medicine

Arterosil-HP is the only product clinically proven to restore the protective “non-stick” lining of your arteries” — the endothelial glycocalyx.

Recently, scientists have discovered that the interior of our blood vessels have a  micro-thin protective gel lining called the endothelial glycocalyx. It’s a “non-stick” surface that helps maintain endothelial function including arterial elasticity and healthy blood pressure.

The glycocalyx prevents cholesterol and other harmful particles from adhering to or penetrating the endothelial wall. When the glycocalyx lining is breached, cholesterol can adhere to, lodge under or penetrate the endothelial wall. This initiates the inflammatory response that leads to plaque formation and thrombotic events.

Unfortunately the endothelial glycocalyx is easily damaged by many common conditions, such as high blood glucose, oxidative stress and inflammation. Poor diet, disease, stress and aging can compromise the glycocalyx lining.

Cardiovascular Health is Total Body Health

The glycocalyx plays a critical role in cardiovascular health. As illustrated below, your vascular system has 60,000 miles of blood vessels — including arteries, veins and tiny capillaries. Every blood vessel in your body is protected by this smooth inner glycocalyx lining.
