Atherosclerotic Plaque is a term used to describe damage and obstruction to the linings of the arteries. When blood flow is impeded or blocked, the result can be death or disability from a stroke or heart attack. Atherosclerosis is a disease of aging that has always been prevalent.
The prevalence and severity of atherosclerosis worsens with aging. Two nutrients have been shown to dramatically slow the worsening of atherosclerotic plaque (by 95%), reduce unstable plaque, and improve endothelial function (by 66%).
