Your Friends Name ,
I know it may seem a little strange for me to write to you about this topic, but I think it’s important – for all of us.
It’s about your heart.
Look - I know I’m no doctor. But I don’t have to be one to know that my diet probably hasn’t done my heart any favors.
And if you’re honest, you would probably say the same thing.
So - I started wondering if there was something I could do (other than eating better and exercising) that would help me be more aware of what’s going on in the world of heart research, medical advice, and new science. Maybe there are breakthroughs or ideas out there that I have never heard of.
So I came upon this site, full of research papers and articles all about the latest in heart and artery care.
One thing that stands out to me is the research revealing a protective gel lining that we have in our heart, veins and arteries. It is supposed to protect our blood vessels from the damaging effects of cholesterol, fats, and other stuff that can collect and ruin our health.
Check out this paper about this from Maastricht University in the Netherlands:
Glycocalyx Perturbation: Cause or consequence of damage to the vasculature?
The science behind all this is actually kind of a big deal in the cardiovascular world. I’m not going to go into all of it in this email, but apparently it was impossible to even see the artery walls up close until a few years ago. But when they finally could, it led to the discovery of a slick lining they didn’t even know was there.
It turns out that keeping that lining slick, smooth and healthy is what keeps cholesterol from sticking. This seems like a big deal to me, too.
Let me know what you think.
