Preventing Cardiovascular Disease NaturallyBy Julius Goepp, MD Maximizing the Benefits of HDL
So let’s put this all together—for optimal cardiovascular health, we need to lower LDL and raise HDL levels, protect LDL from oxidation, raise activity of protective enzyme systems like PON1, and lower activity of risk-inducing systems such as CETP—not to mention reducing inflammatory stimuli and keeping endothelial cells’ health at a peak. That’s a tall order—but we can fill it readily by combining the strengths of supplements http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=34433
we already know about. Here’s how.
We’ve already seen that amla extracts, purified and processed to keep their vital polyphenol content intact, prevent oxidation, keep endothelial linings “slippery,” and optimize lipid profiles. By combining amla with extracts from a much less exotic plant family, we can further enhance antioxidant protection and add modulation of the powerful systems exemplified by PON1 and CETP. The so-called cruciferous vegetables (including cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, mustard greens, kale, and others) have long been associated with improved health and reduced vulnerability to cancers and cardiovascular http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=131
diseases.52,53 These vegetables, and especially their properly grown and harvested sprouts, are rich in a number of polyphenols and sulfur-containing compounds with powerful antioxidant capabilities.54-56 Specific cruciferous vegetable-derived phytochemicals also have the surprising ability to stimulate activity of many of the phase 2 detoxification enzymes.57 In the words of cell biologist and cardiovascular researcher Lingyun Wu of the University of Saskatchewan, “a diet containing phase 2 protein inducers [such as those derived from cruciferous sprouts] also reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular problems of hypertension and atherosclerosis.”58
