The glycocalyx is a thin layer of gel that lines the inside of all the blood vessels that is required for healthy blood flow. Its function is to constantly deliver nutrients and hormones to the cells and eliminate waste. Aging, poor diet, lack of exercise and stress can all cause damage to the glycocalyx over time. Damage to the glycocalyx has been associated with diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and other inflammatory conditions. Endocalyx has been clinically shown to support healthy glycocalyx function, protect the heart and arteries, and maintain optimum circulation throughout the entire body.
