ZEN Arterosil is a natural supplement that supports artery and heart health. It’s the only dietary supplement that helps maintain optimal endothelial function through regeneration of the vascular endothelial glycocalyx. Arterosil has been proven to support the body’s vascular system for optimal function.
This supplement is ideal for helping treat and control high blood pressure and hypertension, as well as preventing degeneration of the artery linings due to dietary fats and sugars. Arterosil is an all-natural, heart-healthy supplement that may be used to prevent cholesterol buildup in the arteries while providing overall vascular health.
Strengthening the glycocalyx and endothelium
Arterosil is used as a natural high-blood-pressure treatment and promotes vascular health by reinforcing and strengthening the glycocalyx and endothelium.
The glycocalyx is a slippery, gel-like artery lining made of specialized polysaccharides and proteins. Its purpose is to promote artery health by providing a protective barrier that allows fats and cholesterol to glide freely through the arteries. Allowing free movement of blood (and everything the blood carries with it) through the vascular system prevents penetration of the lining. When cholesterol–a contributor to an unhealthy heart and vascular system–penetrates the surface of the glycocalyx layer, it may reach the point where the layer can no longer repair itself quickly enough, potentially causing further problems and potential disease. But we should not just be concerned with the amount of cholesterol: the real issue lies in the cholesterol sticking to and penetrating the artery wall. Simply put, the glycocalyx is the first defense for healthy arteries, and in turn, a healthy heart.
Functions of the glycocalyx layer include the following:
- Regulates vascular permeability and fluid balance in the arteries
- Provides a physical barrier against adhesion of cells to the vascular wall
- Regulates coagulation, as many coagulation mediators are buried under normal conditions
The endothelium is a one-cell-thick layer just underneath the glycocalyx layer. It functions as an integrated organ, lining all your arteries, veins, capillaries, and even the heart itself. It helps maintain optimal endothelial function through regeneration of the vascular endothelial glycocalyx, related to the development of diseases like atherosclerosis, diabetes, sepsis, and trauma.
A healthy glycocalyx prevents cells from reaching the endothelium, which keeps fat and cholesterol from seeping through the artery wall. When dietary fats and sugars enter the bloodstream, the gel-like layer and its microscopic fibers can become flattened and even destroyed.
When a stressed glycocalyx layer is worn down, problems may arise because it becomes sticky and cannot contribute to blood flow. Fats and cholesterol will stick to the glycocalyx as blood flows, which may result in a broken endothelium and allows these substances to penetrate the barrier through gaps in the endothelium. Cholesterol can build up in the artery wall and contribute to a variety of pathologies.
Pathologies associated with impaired endothelial glycocalyx include the following:
- Coronary heart disease
- Renal diseases
- Lacunar stroke
- Severe trauma
When taking Arterosil, it’s important to incorporate it in conjunction with additional healthy and preventative daily habits, including a healthy diet, exercise, no smoking, and discussing artery health with your doctor to create the best plan for your individual needs and concerns.
Some of the primary contributors to the breakdown of the endothelial glycocalyx are high blood glucose, oxidative stress (such as smoking), and inflammation, so additional activities to reduce these contributors is recommended for best results.
A natural heart-health supplement
Arterosil supports a healthy glycocalyx and endothelial function and was developed as a natural alternative of heparin for heart patients.
When searching for ingredients that could achieve the desired results, the doctor who developed Arterosil came across a rare green seaweed, Monostroma nitidum, in east Asia. This seaweed is rich in rhamnan sulfate, which is a negatively charged polysaccharide that has been shown to serve many functions, including acting as an anti-coagulate and possessing antithrombotic activities with potential health benefits, ideal for combatting pathologies associated with heart health. Rhamnan sulfate has a similar chemical structure to heparin sulfate, which is found in the endothelial glycocalyx, and this chemical structure may serve the same purpose in regenerating the stressed or damaged glycocalyx layer.
Nutrients found in Arterosil are added to the diet to help support the structure of the glycocalyx. Arterosil’s unique combination of natural ingredients provides the building blocks to support the body for a healthy glycocalyx, resulting in healthy arteries, and in turn, directly support a healthy heart.
Clinical studies and findings
Arterosil has been thoroughly studied and researched. It is the first and only product that has been proven to be safe and effective to help maintain a healthy endothelial glycocalyx and its mediated endothelial function.
A clinical trial showed an 89.6% increase in arterial elasticity following consumption of Arterosil. This trial was conducted with healthy subjects and demonstrated that use of Arterosil supports arterial health by rapidly improving the body’s percentage of type 1 wave forms, arterial elasticity, stress resistance, and frequency domain power.
In another study, Arterosil was demonstrated to help rebuild the endothelial glycocalyx. This study was conducted with healthy subjects after they consumed a high-sugar meal. The results also showed improved endothelial function with supplementation as measured by reactive hyperemia index (RHI).
