Endothelial cells form the structural basis of the lining of blood vessels (the endothelium). Damage to the endothelium affects the ability of the blood vessel to function and increases with age. Endothelial Progenitor Cells (EPCs) function to repair damage to the endothelial of blood vessels and are considered important in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, since healthy arteries are vital in supporting longevity, improving the function of EPCs plays an important role in extending lifespan.
Taurine and Magnesium. Administration of taurine and magnesium to lab animals resulted in significant increases in EPC colonies, enhancing endothelium repair and function. Aging is associated with decreased levels of EPCs, a significant factor in endothelium damage and impairment of vascular maintenance and homeostasis. Because EPCs have significant potential to repair the lining of blood vessels, researchers concluded that dietary intake of taurine and magnesium may extend lifespan by improving cardiovascular function and preventing the progression of cardiovascular disease.
