Capillaries and Microcirculation

   Capillary disease is the most important aspect of the pathology. This is the basis of any disease, without this knowledge medicine remains blind and cannot understand the pathology.

- сapillaries, venules and arterioles contain about 80% of blood, the remaining 20% ​​are in large arteries and veins
- the total length of the capillaries of an adult is up to 100,000 km.
- the total area of ​​all capillaries is 6300 m²

Waste products from the body (such as carbon dioxide and urea) can also pass through the walls of the capillaries, be transported and excreted from the body.

Main functions:
- providing each cell with nutrients and oxygen
- transport of waste products from cells to venules
- contraction or expansion in proportion to the needs of the tissue in the blood supply.

   Improper functioning of the capillaries means insufficient nutrition of the cell and removal of waste products from it. The more non-functioning capillaries, the more extensive and severe the disease.


   Capillaries are tiny blood vessels that pass blood from the arteries into the veins. They are very small, the largest being about 10 micrometers in diameter. Their walls are thin which allows materials to pass into the capillaries. Different types of capillaries exists and perform different functions for the body.

   Microcirculation supplies oxygen and nutrients to heart tissue and all of the 75 trillion cells that comprise the human body. In fact, each cell in the body has its own personal blood supply no further than 1/500th of an inch from the 100000 kilometers of capillaries that comprise the microcirculatory system of the human body. Microcirculation also is important to the regulation of coronary blood flow.

   Microcirculation abnormalities often occur in subjects with high blood pressure. In fact, it is now thought that the microvascular changes that occur in hypertensive people may play a role in the end-role organ damage often seen in this disease, including heart disease. 

   In hypertension, the microvascular walls thicken and the lumen, the space within an artery, narrows, ultimately resulting in the blockage of vessels.

   This reduces the number of capillaries and small blood vessels known as arterioles. These destructive changes are known to occur in the microvascular system that feeds the heart muscle, the conjunctiva and retina, and the kidneys, so capillaries treatments is major factor for recovery.

   Dysfunction in the microcirculatory system (microangiopathy) is also a significant problem in diabetics, depriving their tissues of nutrients and oxygen and decreasing the ability to remove toxins.

   Clearly, microcirculation is an essential, but often poorly recognized, factor in heart health. Therefore, enhancing the microvascular system is as important as maintaining healthy cholesterol levels or tending to other aspects of cardiovascular health.

Capillary Propeties

   The properties of capillaries are highly varied depending on where they are.
 Kidney capillaries have lots of microscopic holes so that substances may easily pass through them and be excreted
   Liver capillaries look almost like coiled snakes, making many loops back and forth in liver tissue to allow ample time to filter harmful materials from the blood.
Brain capillaries are very tight with almost no holes to protect fragile brain tissue.
   Targeting the microcirculation in health programs is key to maintaining the vitality and health that should last our entire lifetimes. Unfortunately lifestyle, habits and disease that are prawned as a result have the effect of debilitating the microcirculation, which leads to further compounding of the disease process.

   Life is an eternal movement of liquids between cells and inside cells. The stop of this movement leads to death. Partial delay of movement of liquids in any organ causes partial disorder. The general delay out of - and intracellular fluid in an organism causes disease.

   In case if any organ supplied with blood insufficiently or lost blood circulation its activity against an infection is catastrophically failed. In struggle against an infection capillaries are the main defender (oxidation, phagocytosis, removal of toxins).

Capillary circulation is the main area where metabolism occurs.

   The quantity of open capillaries is the key to pathogenesis of each process of regeneration. Capillary disease - capillaropathy, is the most important chapter of pathology and is the base of each disease process, capillary microcirculation disorder treatments is very important aspect to be active and healthy. 

Possible Indications of Microvascular Disfunction

Retinal Abnormalities
Cold hands and feet
Kidney Disease
Varicose Veins
Swelling of the ankles and fingers
Thinning of the skin and/or premature skin aging
