Endothelyx 45® is a food supplement that contains vitamin C, B6, B1 and B12, together with a specific and optimal combination of bioflavonoids and natural phenols from citrus aurantium and olea europaea.
Vitamin C is absolutely necessary to ensure many functions in the body. It is basic for tissue growth and repair, and plays a very important role in antioxidant defense. The body can not produce or store it, so its inclusion in Endothelyx 45® is essential.
Vitamins B6 (pyridoxine) and B12 (cobalamin) play a decisive role in Endothelyx 45®, since they contribute to the normal metabolism of homocysteine. Homocysteine is an amino acid that originates from the metabolism of methionine into cysteine contained in dietary proteins, which could be harmful to the arterial endothelium in high amounts. Too high homocysteine levels can alter the walls of the vessels and promote inflammatory processes5.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) contributes to normal function of the heart.
The phenolic extract of the olea europaea, which includes hydroxytyrosol, oleuropein, tyrosol, caffeic acid, verbascosides and a family of flavonoids, has high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.
They contribute to the protection of blood lipids (LDL cholesterol) against oxidative stress.
The oxidation of LDL cholesterol is considered one of the most important processes in arterial disorders, such as the formation of plaques6-14.
