ARTERIAL PROTECT - Life Extension - 30 vegetarian capsules
Life Extension Arterial Protect,
30 vegetarian capsules, Item# 02004
As one ages, lipids in combination with inflammatory cells, cellular waste products and calcium build up within the walls of the blood vessels to form arterial plaque.
If this plaque becomes unstable, it can rupture, potentially damaging the thin layer of cells along the arteries (endothelium) and may block blood flow.
The extracts in Arterial Protect have been documented to support the body’s ability to control plaque formation. They also promote the body’s natural maintenance of the stability of arterial plaque, helping to avoid ruptures and maintain healthy blood flow throughout the body.1
Patented and clinically tested, Arterial Protect is a combination of proprietary Pycnogenol® French maritime pine bark extract and Centellicum® Centella asiatica leaf extract.
Pycnogenol® has been demonstrated in controlled research to improve endothelial function and arterial blood flow.2 It also significantly reduces oxidative stress. Additionally, Pycnogenol® is known to help modulate healthy inflammation and to help inhibit platelet aggregation.3
Centella asiatica has been shown in placebo-controlled studies to result in enhanced stability of arterial plaque.4,5 Centella asiatica modulates production of collagen, which is found in the composition of the cap holding plaque in place.4,5 It also supports free radical defense mechanisms and helps promote healthy inflammation levels.
When human volunteers were supplemented with both Pycnogenol® and Centella asiatica—the two ingredients in Arterial Protect—progression of arterial plaque was substantially reduced, and this was associated with a reduction in oxidative stress.1
For those seeking enhanced arterial protection, take just one vegetarian capsule daily of Arterial Protect to naturally stabilize endothelial plaque and promote healthy blood flow.
