The Burick Center Introduces Arterosil®
Arterosil® – the only glycocalyx regenerating product patented to stabilize and regress vulnerable plaque*
The Burick Center for Health and Wellness is excited to introduce a new supplement called Arterosil®. It promotes a healthy heart, maintains a healthy artery wall, and supports a strong and vital endothelial glycocalyx.
What is the Endothelial glycocalyx?
Endothelial glycocalyx (or eGCX) is a micro thin gel lining located throughout the capillaries, arteries, and veins. Recent studies have shown that the endothelial glycocalyx plays a major role in health and disease states. It is a barrier that helps preserve normal arterial function, slows the normal change of artery walls caused by aging, genetics, and lifestyle choices as well as help in maintaining your cholesterol and blood pressure.
Dysfunction of the eGCX has been associated with disease states such as atherosclerosis, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and chronic kidney disease, all of which are significant threats to both the quality and length of human life.
A Deeper Look at Arterosil®
Arterosil® contains MonitumRS™ – a proprietary extract of rhamnan sulfate, a specialized sulfated polysaccharide derived from the rare green seaweed, Monostroma nitidum. Rhamnan sulfate is a powerful glycocalyx regenerating compound and has been reported to possess many cardiovascular health benefits.
The rhamnan sulfate found in Arterosil has a similar chemical structure to heparan sulfate found abundantly in human endothelial glycocalyx, and may exert its biological activities by regenerating endothelial glycocalyx.
