Life is in the Blood
“For the Life of every creature is its blood: its blood is life…” Leviticus 17:14
The blood delivers life sustaining nutrients and oxygen to every cell of the body, but it is also responsible for the removal of the metabolic waste products and carbon dioxide so that it can be excreted from the body.
As important as the blood is, just as important is the glycocalex, which is the thin, gel-like layer that has a hair-like appearance lining the inner wall of the capillaries. The capillaries are the very tiniest blood vessels where the oxygen and nutrient exchange happens. A healthy capillary wall and glycocalex allows the nutrients and oxygen to leave the blood and diffuse across the blood vessel wall and into the cells….heart muscle cells, eye cells, brain cells, knee cartilage cells, kidney cells, and every other cell in the body.
Capillaries are about 4-5 microns in diameter. A human hair is about 100 microns and a red blood cell is about 7 microns, which means the red blood cells have to line up in single file and then suck in, compressing themselves to squeeze through the capillary.
When the glycocalex, the gel-like layer that lines the inner wall of the capillary, is thick and healthy, it allows the oxygen and nutrients to diffuse easily and fully. However, when the glycocalex is damaged and thinned out, it impedes this exchange. A damaged glycocalex is found in the following disease states (not a complete list):
-coronary artery disease (aka, heart attacks)
-kidney damage requiring dialysis l
-eye disease like macular degeneration
-ICU admission from covid-19
The glycocalex is damaged by…. surprise, surprise! 😉
-high sugar diet
-lack of minerals
-heavy metals and other toxins, including excess iron
There is now a way to easily measure the thickness of the glycocalex and Veritas Medical is blessed to be one of the first clinics in America to be able to offer this technology (coming soon, hopefully by the end of February).
Dr. Hans Vink is a researcher from the Netherlands who has been studying the inner lining of blood vessels and capillaries since the 1980’s. He and his team are the world’s leaders in understanding the glycocalex. They were instrumental in developing the technology to measure the glycocalex and also in formulating the nutracutical product, Endocalyx Pro, that has been proven to regrow the damaged glycocalex back to healthy levels.
Research studies have shown that Endocaleyx Pro can re-establish a healthy glycocalex which results in:
-significantly improved kidney function to the point of patients coming off of dialysis
-clearing atherosclerotic plaque in coronary arteries (50% blockage down to 0%)
-improved eye sight
-reveresed erectile dysfunction
-improved blood sugar levels in diabetics
-improved hair growth
-improved energy and overall sense of well being
-resolving of long haul covid symptoms
Covid-19 infection has been shown to damage the glycocalex, and people with long haul covid symtopms show sustained and significant damage to the glycocalex. The spike protien can embed itself in the wall of the capillary and damage the capillary wall.
People who have received the Covid-19 injection can have ongoing production of and exposure to the spike protein, almost guaranteeing ongoing damage to the blood vessel wall. So, this could potentially be a huge breakthrough in trying to reverse the damage of the ongoing spike protein exposure.
In my opinion, this is one of the most exciting breakthroughs in modern medicine and could be a leading technology to help assist people in their exit from the conventional medicine model. A healthy glycocalex is the foundation of health. I believe all chronic disease will be proven to be associated with damage to the glycocalex.
It is also my opinion that those who are stewarding their health with a high quality, nutrient dense, God-food diet, along with quality hydration, effective movement and sustained peaceful state of mind will score well on their Glycocheck test.

“You’re The Cure” radio show and podcast will also be featuring this subject in the coming weeks. As soon as Veritas Medical is ready to start offering the Glycocheck testing, we will make an announcment, hopefully by the end of the month. We will be offering this to members first and at the best price but will also open it up to non-members as availability allows.
