Life Extension’s new Vascular Protect is a multi-nutrient formula designed to provide well-tolerated broad-spectrum support for the heart. Each of the three active ingredients in this unique preparation has been scientifically standardized to ensure optimum potency.
A heart-healthy antiaging program depends on a number of factors ranging from maintaining optimal levels of blood lipids (such as triglycerides and cholesterol) to minimizing destructive forces such as endothelial dysfunction and oxidative stress.
Life Extension’s new Vascular Protect is a multi-nutrient formula designed to provide well-tolerated broad-spectrum support for the heart. Each of the three active ingredients in this unique preparation has been scientifically standardized to ensure optimum potency:
• AmlaMax® is a patent-pending extract of Indian gooseberry fruit. It contains a diverse blend of phenolic compounds that have been clinically shown to safely support healthy levels of cholesterol, triglycerides and markers of inflammation such as C-reactive protein (CRP). Studies have also shown that amla extract helps to induce rapid and significant improvement in endothelial function.
• SproutGarden® Heart Proprietary Blend contains key vegetable extracts that are rich in quercetin, which helps support healthy high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels. Quercetin also upregulates an enzyme called paraoxonase-1, low levels of which compromise the integrity of vascular walls.
• SproutGarden® Antioxidant Proprietary Blend is an antioxidant-rich nutritive formula. This novel preparation beneficially facilitates the critical process of reverse cholesterol transport by inhibiting a pro-atherogenic enzyme called cholesteryl ester transfer protein. Reverse cholesterol transport is a well-documented function of HDL, which removes cholesterol from the arterial walls and returns it to the liver.
