Have you heard of the glymphatic system?

The Glymphatic system is a recently discovered system consisting of a network of vessels and nodes, the same as the Lymphatic system, that clear waste from the central nervous system and is dedicated to the drainage of waste products within the brain region.
This is done through the collection of excess waste such as metabolites and proteins. The Glymphatic system will collect these excess wastes from the brain and transfer them to the cerebrospinal fluid to then drain the toxins out of the body.
The clearance of excess waste and fluid is critical for the human body to maintain tissue homeostasis.
The human brain weighs 2% of the body’s total weight and contains 25% of the overall cholesterol stored in the body. Cholesterol is a lipid that is transported via the blood as lipoproteins.

The Glymphatic system has a vital role in removing excess wastes such as increased lipids. Glymphatic dysfunction may occur due to excess waste accumulation, which can then cause homeostasis to become compromised, affecting the body’s ability to function correctly.
While the glymphatic system helps transport these lipids and excess waste through the body, any congestion along the way will cause an increased build-up of fluids and excess waste, contributing to neuroinflammation and cognitive dysfunction.

Research shows a major connection between cholesterol (apolipoprotein E) congestion and Alzheimer’s Disease. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16156481/
So wouldn’t it make sense to decongest the glymphatic system to eliminate these risks?

We have discovered our approach to assist with Glymphatic waste removal!
