That's not coral -- but a true-to life model of the human vascular system. This series of veins have been plastinated using a method developed by Dr. Gunther von Hagens, the scientist behind the often controversial Body Worlds exhibits. A liquid plastic gets injected into the blood stream. When it hardens, scientists can study the system as it is in the human body.

Hefty Heart  Credit:Gunther von Hagens, Institute for Plastination,   Tiny or towering, a mammal's size can affect how long it lives for: a tiny shrew whose heart races at 1,000 beats a minute lives for just a few years, while the slow-beating heart of an elephant can beat for up to 70 years. For instance, a bull's heart is packed with blood to circulate around the large beast; as such, it weighs about 5 pounds (2.25 kg), making it five times heftier than a human heart.

Farlow’s Scientific Glassblowing; ‘Where art meets science’ are the creators of this glass vasculatory system. Intricate arterial systems can be blown form glass into anatomical anastomoses such as the Circle of Willis in the brain. If filled with coloured fluid, they reflect the path of blood flow through the arteries and can assist in medical training. Gary Farlow

Resin cast of arteries in the brain. Your brain consumes about 20% of your body's energy so it needs a lot of blood flow to keep it supplied with nutrients. Even knowing that, the density of the neurons here amazes me--they look almost the size of the brain itself!

Systemic Enzymes help to reduce inflammatory proteins, optimize immune function and keep inflammation and swelling under control.

Blood clot. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a blood clot from the inner wall of the left ventricle of a human heart. Red blood cells (erythrocytes) are trapped within a fibrin protein mesh (cream). The fibrin mesh is formed in response to chemicals secreted by platelets (pink), fragments of white blood cells. Clots are formed in response to cardiovascular disease or injuries to blood vessels. Connective tissue (orange) is also seen.
