The endothelial glycocalyx is a dense, gel-like meshwork that covers the endothelial cell layer. It makes up an important physical barrier in the vasculature that prevents lipids and other particles from adhering to and entering the endothelium. This special network of membrane-bound proteoglycans and glycoproteins has a profound influence at the vascular wall on the transmission of shear stress and pressure, the maintenance of selective permeability and controlling adhesion of blood leukocytes and platelets.
Glycocalyx Pro provides a blend of the major constituents of the endothelial glycocalyx, including glycosaminoglycans, hyaluronan, fucoidan and marine polyphenols, which are designed to protect and regenerate the endothelial glycocalyx.
3 capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
Mobilee® Hyaluronic Acid Matrix
Mobilee® is a hyaluronic acid matrix ingredient extracted from rooster comb that contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is present in the endothelial glycocalyx and plays a central role in numerous functions.
Glucosamine sulfate is a natural sugar found in and around the fluid and tissues that cushion joints. Glucosamine sulfate serves as a pre-cursor molecule for glycosaminoglycan synthesis, which is a vital and abundant component of the endothelial glycocalyx.
Maritech® Synergy, a proprietary, multifunctional, certified organic complex that combines the synergistic effects of specialized polyphenols and fucoidan sourced from the wild brown seaweed known as Fucus vesiculosus. Brown seaweed is known to contain more bioactive components than both red or green seaweed. Fucus vesiculosus has one of the highest antioxidant values and total phenolic content, the most potent polyphenol being phlorotannin. Therefore, fucoidan from brown seaweed is a powerful glycocalyx regenerating compound and has been reported to possess many cardiovascular health benefits.
