High glucose from diabetes can result in capillaries being attacked, resulting in capillaries unable to deliver nutrients like glucose, hormones like insulin, and remove waste from cells. Endocalyx restores and maintains the endothelial glycocalyx lining inside the capillaries and improves capillary density and function*. Endocalyx also helps protect against damage from high glucose and oxidative stress*.
Heart attack happens when a blood clot shuts down blood flow in a large artery. When the blood clot is removed blood flow is restored, but damage occurs in the microvessels due to formation of oxygen radicals. Endocalyx supports the health of the microvessels and limits reperfusion injury.*
Even in the absence of a large vessel blockage, people can experience chest pain (angina) due to inadequate microvascular blood flow and loss of capillaries. Endocalyx restores the glycocalyx lining inside the microvascular system and increases capillary density*.
Many people experience loss of cardiac function and suffer from a type of heart failure that is linked to loss of capillaries and increased stiffness of the heart muscle. Endocalyx restores the glycocalyx lining inside the microvessels and increases microvascular blood flow and capillary density that will contribute to improved heart function*.
Septic shock occurs when the blood pressure drops to a dangerous level after an infection. Toxins produced by infecting bacteria can damage small blood vessels causing them to leak. This affects the ability of the heart to pump blood to vital organs. Endocalyx improves the small blood vessels ability to resist damage which allows them to resist leaking*.
Dementia is associated with damage and the loss of capillary density in the brain. When capillaries are damaged, essential nutrients can’t nourish and oxygenate cells in the brain, and just as importantly, waste and carbon dioxide can’t be removed. Endocalyx restores the glycocalyx lining inside the capillaries so that capillary density can increase, with nutrients delivered to, and waste removed from cells in the brain*.
Stroke occurs when a blood clot in a large artery blocks supply of oxygen and nutrients, resulting in brain damage. After removal or dissolving the clot and blood flow is restored to the brain, further damage occurs due to loss of capillaries by high levels of oxygen radicals. Endocalyx can protect the capillaries against this second challenge of high oxygen radicals by restoring the health of the glycocalyx lining*.
Out-of-control activation of the inflammatory system in response to challenges like rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, allergies, glomerulonephritis, autoimmune diseases, scleroderma, and atherosclerosis. An attack on capillaries by inflammatory cells results in damage and loss of capillaries. Increased capillary permeability causes tissue edema. Endocalyx can restore the endothelial glycocalyx lining inside the capillaries, even after damage and the loss of capillary density*.
