Lipoprotein(a)-The Real Cause of Heart Disease

Lipoprotein(a)-The Real Cause of Heart Disease

The greatest discovery in heart diseases is the correlation between nutritional deficiency, improper collagen synthesis that form lesions in the blood vessels and the increase of plasma lp(a) levels that try to patch the lesions formed as a preventive mechanism. This explains the true cause of coronary artery disease.Even the World Health Organization (WHO) attributes the cause of chronic diseases like coronary artery disease, diabetes, cancer and so on to unhelthy diet, lack of exercise and smoking.

LDL Cholesterol VS Lipoprotein(a)! Vitamin C deficiency Increases Lp(a) Levels!


Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] consists of an LDL-like particle and the specific apolipoprotein(a) [apo(a)], which is covalently bound to the apoB of the LDL like particleLipoprotein(a) has long been suspected of contributing to cardiovascular risk. But this new research offers the strongest evidence yet identifying it as an independent risk factor for heart attack. Several Scientific studies now confirm lp(a) to be the independent risk factor of heart disease.

There is a very slight difference in LDL cholesterol and lp(a) molecule, the difference being that lp(a) contains an additional lipoprotein attached to it. Lp(a) concentrations are dependent upon the hereditary factors. All individuals have a certain amount of lp(a). Under nutritional deficiency conditions its level increase.

Vitamin C Deficiency Affects Collagen Synthesis! Vitamin C deficiency Increases Risk of Heart Disease.


It was Dr Linus Pauling and Dr Matthias Rath who discovered that chronic deficiency of Vitamin C leads to 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 heart 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.

Highlights of Dr linus Pauling’s and Dr Matthias Rath’s work:Heart disease is caused due to nutritional deficiencies, especially deficiency of Vitamin C. 

Vitamin C deficiency leads to incomplete collagen synthesis because of which lesions are formed in the blood vessels.

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.

How can i become normal if i have high Lp(a) levels?

Learn How To Lower Lipoprotein (a)

High Lp(a) levels indicate the risk of heart disease. Lowering lipoprotein (a) along with concomitant removal of arterial plaque is a way to normalize your cholesterol levels. This can be done with the nutritional formula which:
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.

All this is possible with the nutritional therapy.
