Takeaways:

  • Learn the critical roles of the endothelial glycocalyx in the health of every organ and system in the body

  • Identify patients at risk of endothelial glycocalyx impairment

  • Curated strategies to help protect and restore the endothelial glycocalyx

  • How to use Arterosil HP, a dietary supplement that restores and protects endothelial glycocalyx

About This Course

The endothelial glycocalyx (the EGX) is the micro-thin, gel-like lining of every blood vessel, artery, vein, and capillary in the body. The EGX plays a key role as a semipermeable membrane that allows passage of molecules through the endothelium, triggers nitric oxide production, and modulates inflammation. 


What effective therapeutic agents exist to support this vital structure? Family practitioner Kristine Burke, MD, will focus on how the endothelial glycocalyx has changed her clinical practice. In particular, she’ll review formulation-specific research and case studies for a novel supplement: Arterosil® HP. With a patent specifically for plaque stabilization and regression, Arterosil offers a means for many individuals to immediately support vascular health. Dr. Burke also touches upon other lifestyle interventions from diet, exercise, sleep, stress management, and more that support a healthy and vital EGX.


Outcomes of endothelial glycocalyx support can include::

  • Normalization of blood pressure

  • Restored arterial elasticity

  • Arterial plaque regression

  • Reduction in neuropathic pain

  • Improvements in erectile function

  • And more.


By improving vascular health, all other interventions can be optimized.
