Bonus Years Nutrition
The Bonus Years Diet distinguishes itself from every other diet by targeting the locus of most heart disease, kidney disease and strokes: the lining cells of the blood vessels (endothelium). The endothelium (lining cells) dilate the blood vessels and provide a "teflon" like coating which allows the blood to flow smoothly through the blood vessels. When the endothelium is injured, as with hypertension, smoking, or high cholesterol, holes are created in this "teflon" like coating (endothelium), disrupting its life preserving functions. Clots form, decreasing blood flow to the heart, brain, and kidney, ultimately leading to heart attacks,strokes, and kidney failure.The important action all takes place here, at this critical interface between the flowing blood and the blood vessel walls.
