It is the arteries near the heart that are most susceptible to atherosclerosis. Dr. Linus Pauling suggested that constant flexing of the arteries as the heart pumps, plus the regular increase and decrease of blood pressure with each heartbeat subjects these arteries to mechanical stresses that may cause them to crack. The buildup of plaque is an attempt by the body to protect these damaged areas. Dr. Pauling's response was to suggest nutrients to both heal the arteries and remove the plaque.

Dr. Linus Pauling and Dr. Rath developed a dietary formula to clean arteries and maintain arterial health. The three ingredients of their formula are vitamin C, plus the amino acids lysine and proline. Vitamin C and lysine heal and maintain the cartilage in arterial walls near the heart where it is subject to mechanical stress. Lysine and proline remove arterial plaque. All three ingredients are important. However, the body can manufacture proline from other amino acids, whereas the body cannot make vitamin C or lysine. Clean arteries are important to cancer prevention.

"I recommend that every person who is at risk of heart disease should take 5 or 6 g of vitamin C and at least 2 g of lysine, although larger amounts may be necessary." - Linus Pauling

Why using a sleep mask? The hormone Melatonin regulates the day-night cycle of the human body and controls the recovery phases during sleep. For the production of this hormone, the human body requires sufficient darkness. Lightness prevents the production of Melatonin. Even a little portion of light during your sleep, for example caused by a digital clock, is a disturbance. Sleep masks however provide complete darkness for your sleep.

Sleep masks - what for?
- if you want to sleep while travelling, e.g. on airplanes or in trains;
- if your bedroom cannot completely be shaded by black-out curtains and you want to sleep in;
- if you cannot fall asleep because your partner wants to read or watch TV;
- if you are looking for perfect relaxation during yoga, wellness or meditation.
