Emerging risk factor lp(a) is linked to the cause of coronary artery disease. Lp(a) binds to the walls of the arteries causing arterial plaque. Lp(a) levels rise in response to chronic Vitamin C deficiency
Coronary Heart Disease (CVD)
Arterial plaque buildup starts with chronic deficiency of vitamin c and not due to dietary fats and cholesterol. This has been well established by scientific research. Vitamin c deficiency causes lesions the blood vessels as proved by Canadian Scientist.It was Dr Linus Pauling and Dr Matthias Rath who discovered that chronic deficiency of Vitamin C leads incomplete collagen synthesis thus forming lesions in the blood vessels from where the blood tries to ooze out.
Lp (a) levels in the body are determined by genetic factors. Under chronic vitamin c deficiency the lp (a) levels increase in the body and they form a patch over the lesions formed thus initiating the process of atherosclerosis.
Over a period of time the arterial plaque increase and narrows the blood vessels thus increasing the blood pressure and the risk of coronary artery disease.
The scientific researches of Dr Linus Pauling and Dr Matthias Rath clearly indicate the involvement of lipoprotein (a) in plaque formation. They have even proved how Lp(a) attaches to the lesions formed in blood vessels due to vitamin c deficiency.Lipoprotein(a)-The Real Cause of Heart Disease
Lp(a) levels rise in response to vitamin c deficiency as a preventive mechanism.
Lp(a) molecules attach to the incomplete collagen molecules via an amino group in order to prevent the blood from oozing outside the blood vessels.
The structure of lp(a) has been determined. It is very similar to LDL molecule with an additional protein molecule called as apolipoprotein a attached to it.
Some facts about Lp(a) that you should know!
High levels of lp(a) are present in one-third of all coronary patients and 15 to 30 percent of the people who experience premature cardiac events have elevated Lp(a) levels.
High levels of Lp(a) raise your risk of coronary artery disease 300 percent, even if all your other numbers look good.
Lp(a) is inherently not bad-one of its functions is to heal arterial wounds.
Knowing Lp(a) values is useful. You should find a good laboratory who can do the testing for you.
Lipoprotein (a)-The rEal Cause of Heart Disease
Lowers blood Lp(a) levels;
Removes Lp(a) particles attached to the blood vessels.
Repairs the lesions formed in the collagen matrix and
promotes collagen synthesis.
