Did you know that your “fountain of youth” is actually located in your blood vessels? The lining of the blood vessels – the endothelium – is your body’s largest internal medicine pharmacy. Your endothelial pharmacy dispenses dozens of medicines that regulate:
- blood flow and blood pressure
- blood clotting
- growth and repair of blood vessels
A person with healthy endothelium basically has a working pharmacy that dispenses the right medicines at the right time, resulting in a longer and healthier life.
