Circa 1628, Dr. William Harvey described MACROcirculation in the human body based on evidence and observation. Arguably, he was a pioneer in today’s more modern science, but the Sick Care Industrial Complex of the day, Bloodletters and Physicians practicing “The Four Humors,” viciously attacked him. Despite that, Dr. Harvey was included in a list of “The Ten Most Influential People of the Second Millennium” in the World Almanac & Book of Facts, by Arthur Schlesinger Jr.
Today we have an emerging science based on MICROvascular science and the recent discovery of the Endothelial Glycocalyx, or Glycocalyx for short, which evidence shows regulates many blood vascular functions and whose degradation might result in many different conditions with this common root cause.
When healthy, this is a 2 to 1 ratio: 2 liters of Glycocalyx to 1 liter of microvascular blood. Additionally, The Glycocalyx is many times thicker than the endothelial cell membrane, which emits it. Harvey would say, “Must have a purpose!”
Glycocalyx science supports Health and Wellness strategies, especially micronutrition, on at a level so deep– with more potential impact– than strategies like pharmaceuticals: you know, Sick Care Industrial Complex stuff.
Our bodies’ Glycocalyx evolved from ancient and more primitive societies who ate more unprocessed vegetables and fruits. Modern researchers, not surprisingly, have discovered such diets are superior in preventing and fighting disease: AKA Pan Asian and Mediterranean. But, what modern researchers do not know is Why and How.
I am going to tell you. These diets work because these foods contain substrates (building blocks) for the Glycocalyx that sustains and restores the Glycocalyx, resulting in more microvascular blood flowing through our organs: brains, heart, kidneys, skin, eyes… You get the idea. More blood flow is excellent!
Not trusting our food supply and habits, Microvascular Solutions offers the nutraceutical Endocalyx Pro containing these substrates, sourced by olives, red grapes, melons, artichokes, Brown Asian Sea Weed, antioxidants, etc.
Restoration of more blood flow by natural means results in improved blood supply to all organs:
Well, now you know more than most physicians and nutritionists: the Why and How.
I suggest that many of the conditions listed on this website have this complex micronutrition disorder as a root or contributing cause, juxtaposed to a more straightforward micronutritional disease like scurvy (Vitamin C) or Rickets (Vitamin D): treated by these simpler substrates so to speak.
The Emerging Glycocalyx Science is essential, pure, and understandable: it needs attention from consumers, physicians, and researchers alike.
I call this need a “critical mass.” Thoughts? Questions? Ideas?
