Artery Defence

Stress, smoking, and poor diet
have all been linked to
increased inflammation
and oxidation of LDL.
It is very important to reduce
inflammation and oxidative stress
to prevent plaque from forming
in the artery walls.

ME-3 in Artery Defence has been clinically proven to reduce cholesterol and inflammation without any known side effects.

You might be unaware that you have cardiovascular disease until it’s too late and you are struck down by a heart attack, angina, stroke or heart failure.  

Cardiovascular disease refers to both diseases of the heart (cardio) and the blood vessels (veins and arteries)that can lead to a heart attack, angina or stroke.  Cardio vascular disease (CVD) is usually associated with a build-up of fatty plaque around the artery wall which makes the arteries become narrowed and hardened inhibiting blood flow through the arteries (atherosclerosis).  Atherosclerosis, the most common cause of cardiovascular disease, can be caused by an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, being overweight and smoking.

Research has shown that certain probiotics can reduce cholesterol, blood pressure and inflammation.

Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3 is a patented strain of bacteria than can improve antioxidant defence, by boosting production of the major cellular antioxidant, glutathione, a critical disease-fighting compound. The longer we live, the more depleted the glutathione stores are and the higher the risk of illness. The heart, liver and immune system all require glutathione to keep you healthy.

Discovered almost 20 years ago, L. fermentum ME-3 has been extensively studied and tested in several human clinical studies, most of them focusing on cardiovascular disease parameters. The most remarkable effect of ME-3 is its capacity to reduce the oxidation of blood lipids, particularly the levels of ox-LDL (oxidised low-density lipoprotein), which is a major contributor to plaque build-up and atherosclerosis development, (hardening and narrowing of the arteries), one of the primary causes of cardiovascular disease. This unique property, combined with the LDL lowering and anti-inflammatory effects of the strain, makes ME-3 perfect for prevention of cardiovascular disease and along with its remarkable antioxidant, antimicrobial and detoxifying properties makes this a multitasking probiotic that can provide a wide range of health benefits.
