Plaque build-up known as atherosclerosis is one of the main causes of cardiovascular diseases which is the largest disease, killing the most amount of people in the world. Atherosclerosis happens to everyone on the planet starting at a young age. The plaque build-up can advance quickly or slowly, this all depends on your lifestyle. Do you smoke, drink, use drugs including steroids, are you overweight and how much stress do you have in your life?
What are plaques made up of?
Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium and cellular debris. Plaques form when the arteries are damaged and the circulating molecules previously mentioned thin and narrow the arteries. This ultimately leads to a cardiovascular event.
What are the risk factors?
There are risk factors that indicate advancing plaque build-up, they are:
1.High blood pressure
2.Diabetes or pre-diabetes
3.High blood pressure
4.Elevated cholesterol levels
What can you do to prevent the advancing build-up of plaques!
Make sure you are not overweight, eat slightly less calories (-15%), eat a Mediterranean type of diet, limit alcohol use and stop smoking. Most importantly make sure your blood pressure is normal (under 120/80 mm/HG) and check blood sugar levels every month.
Can you reverse plaque build-up?
This has been the primary focus of so much research in the medical field, can we reverse plaque build-up. Doing so would prevent implanting stents, open heart surgeries and other cardiovascular surgeries and procedures.
Cloarec. M (2007) looked at a preventative agent for atherosclerosis. That agent being GLISODIN. What is GLISODIN? It’s superoxide dismutase (SOD) which can be found in mammals and plants. SOD essentially renders some harmful molecules in the body unharmful. When humans get stressed, smoke, drink, don’t eat well and are overweight we end up depleting SOD.
Cloarec. M (2007) and the team shown through ultrasound imaging that GLISODIN was effective in this one study at preventing atherosclerosis. The research team imaged the intima media thickness also known as the IMT (the two most inner layers of arteries) in the carotid artery (which supplies the blood and neck with oxygenated blood). The group supplementing with GLISODIN were found to have a significant reduction of thickness in intima media compared to the control group who had significant thickening of the intima media.
Where can you get SOD from?
You can obtain SOD in the diet by eating foods such as melon. However, it does not absorb well. Binding it with a molecule called gliadin, a part of the protein gluten found mostly in wheat. When you bind this gliadin with SOD it becomes highly absorbable and you can take it in supplement form. We like the Life extension Endothelial Defence GLISODIN, but you can find GLISODIN in other shops.
Prevent atherosclerosis by eating a Mediterranean diet lower in calories, stop smoking, don’t do any drugs (including steroids), and limit alcohol intake. Regularly check blood pressure and glucose to monitor signs of high blood pressure and diabetes. Taking GLISODIN reduces IMT in the carotid artery which may help reverse plaque build-up in the arteries.
If you have high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, diabetes and are overweight you will benefit from our services. We will run some simple tests and then put you on an easy diet and recommend some supplements. You should contact us before you have an cardiovascular event such as an heart attack or angina. Contact us here today to start your journey. Before starting taking GLISODIN please check with your healthcare provider if you’re not on a program with us.
