LipoBalance is formulated to support the endothelium, a unicellular barrier that lines our blood vessels and acts as the interface between blood and the rest of the body. It is uniquely formulated to support optimized levels of oxidized low-density lipoproteins (oxLDL).
LDL oxidation is believed to take place when LDL cholesterol particles in your body react with free radicals. Oxidized LDL then reacts with the surrounding tissues, which can cause inflammation that leads to disease and organ damage. In particular, oxidized LDL is a threat to your cardiovascular health as it inhabits the (endothelium) of the body's arteries and blood vessels, contributing to atherosclerotic plaque formation. Plaque buildup can restrict blood flow within an artery, which may increase a person's risk for coronary heart disease.
Risk factors for increased levels of oxidized LDL include:
High in trans fats diet
Poorly controlled diabetes
Metabolic syndrome, sometimes a precursor of diabetes
Exposure to toxins through pollution and preservatives
LipoBalance utilizes patented standardized antioxidant extracts from olive fruit, pomegranate, and french maritime pine bark to support normal endothelial function, healthy blood pressure levels, a normal inflammatory response and healthy levels of oxidized LDL.
Oligopin Maritime Pine†
French maritime pine bark extract (FMPBE) contains flavonoids with potent antioxidant properties which help support healthy levels of circulating oxLDL.
An olive fruit extract standardized for hydroxytyrosol (HT), one of the olive’s primary polyphenols. Its potent antioxidant effects have been shown to support healthy plasma oxLDL levels and optimal cytokine balance.
Pomanox™ Pomegranate Extract uses a proprietary extraction method producing a polyphenol spectrum corresponding to whole fresh pomegranates. Research suggests pomegranate fruit's health boosting effects can be attributed to polyphenols called punicalagins (PC). Pomegranate PCs support healthy HDL and nitric oxide production thereby aiding in endothelial health.
