of the endothelial glycocalyx is a vital element in the restoration of
cardiovascular health, according to Mark Houston, MD, director of the
Hypertension Institute at Saint Thomas West Hospital, Nashville.
The endothelial glycocalyx (EGX) —literally “sugar coating” in
Greek—is a very thin gel-like layer that lines the luminal surface of the blood
vessels. It is a carbohydrate-rich mesh of membrane-bound and soluble
glycoproteins, proteoglycans, and glycosaminoglycans, which create a
Damage to this sensitive, bioactive layer is one of the earliest
steps in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease, Dr. Houston said at the
2022 Integrative Healthcare Symposium.
Mast cell activation syndrome—a multi-system disorder characterized by aberrant activity of these key immune cells—is widely prevalent, and on the rise as the world becomes more toxic, infectious, and stressful, says Tania Tyles Dempsey, MD, a clinician who specializes in this common but mis-diagnosed problem. The syndrome differs from mastocytosis or mast cell cancers in […]
Daily supplementation with a fixed dose combination of nicotinamide riboside, L-carnitine, L-serine, and N-acetyl cysteine significantly reduced liver fat, quelled oxidative stress, and improved liver enzyme profiles in a cohort of 31 patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Defined as hepatic fat accumulation of 5% or more, unrelated to alcohol consumption or other liver […]
disorders, especially overweight and obesity, diabetes, and dyslipidemia are
some of the most common illnesses all over the world, carrying a high burden of
cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
In this free webinar, renowned integrative physician Fred Pescatore, MD, will share the science on a soy-derived fibrinolytic enzyme called Bacillopeptidase F, which is shown to improve circulation and normalize biomarkers associated with metabolic disorders.
biomarkers include: Hemoglobin A1c, fibrinogen, hS-CRP, total Cholesterol,
HDL-cholesterol, LDL- cholesterol, triglycerides and more.
Isolated from natto, a traditional Japanese
fermented soy food, Bacillopeptidase F Proprietary Blend (BFFB) is a
fibrinolytic protease which can reduce plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1).
When elevated, PAI-1 can impede normal blood circulation.
