There are healthy compounds found in grape seeds and skins, including polyphenols such as proanthocyanidins. Grape seed extract has been shown to help:
The "absorption" factor was a big reason we selected the MegaNatural-BP version, over the regular grape seed extracts. But, there are additional benefits:
MegaNatural-BP Grape Seed Extract is made from a special blend of California grown, Non-GMO red and white varietal grape seeds.
This DUAL blend is rich in flavonoids and polyphenols that naturally help promote blood vessel dilation, which can support healthy pressure levels within a normal, youthful range.*
MegaNatural-BP is extracted using a patented, solvent-free water extraction process which yields a low molecular weight product., which further improves delivery to your cells.
Finally, it's clinically proven in two, placebo-controlled human clinical trials conducted by researchers at the Department of Preventive Cardiology, University of California Davis School of Medicine.10
Hawthorn is a thorny shrub under the rose family. Its flowers bloom in May and after the flowers come its small berries. Hawthorn berries contain a wide range of flavonoids, which are excellent antioxidants with healthy inflammatory benefits.*
Extensive research demonstrates that Hawthorn Berry extract delivers optimum support for healthy heart muscle function, coronary artery health and healthy pressure levels within a normal, youthful range.*
This extract helps support:
Hawthorn is even shown to help reduce levels of blood fats and aid in the reduction of fatty deposits in arteries.18
One major benefit is that it helps regulate your body's stress response, including tempering stress hormones, to help support healthy pressure levels within a normal range.13,14
This is exciting news because, for the first time ever, you can address the psychological side of blood pressure, which has long been a missing link in supplement formulas.
I think by now, most people know about the amazing health benefits of olive oil. Unfortunately, olive oil has a lot of calories.
However, scientists have discovered that a primary benefit of olive oil is a compound called Oleuropein.
Oleuropein has a multitude of health benefits, and is also the reason for the distinctive tangy, pungent, almost bitter flavor found in high-quality extra virgin olive oils. Now, special processing techniques allow us to extract a stable, standardized form of oleuropein.
This extract helps support:
Celery is a simple food with a complex chemical makeup. Studies show that celery seed components produce a relaxing, dilating effect that helps support healthy pressure levels within a normal range.*
This appears to occur, at least in part, by blocking or antagonizing the flow of calcium into muscle cells lining blood vessels.24,25
One key pressure improving compound in celery seeds has the technical name of L-3-n-butylphthalide, abbreviated as 3nB.26,27
This key extract has been shown in human clinical studies to promote healthy pressure levels within an already normal, youthful range in six weeks, at a dose of 100 mg daily.*30
To obtain an equivalent amount of 3nB, one would have to consume approximately 530 stalks (nearly 50 pounds) of celery.30,31
The good news is that Blood Pressure Optimizer™ utilizes TWICE the dose. This would be the equivalent of eating over 100+ pounds of celery, daily.
This amazing fruit not only tastes good but has a multitude of health benefits that can help promote healthy pressure levels within a normal, youthful range.*
A compound found only in pomegranates is called punicalagin. It has been shown to offer benefits for the heart and blood vessels.*
Punicalagin is responsible for pomegranate's antioxidant, heart-health and brain-health benefits.*23-25
Lycopene is a substance normally found in tomato seeds. Studies have shown it has a very beneficial effect for human health, being able to help support healthy pressure levels within the normal range.*
It also acts as an antioxidants, helping reduce damage done by free radicals, especially to arteries and blood vessels.*34
Eating tomatoes usually does not break open the seeds, so the Lycopene naturally found in tomatoes is not very useful for human health.
Not to mention, you'd also have to eat many pounds of tomatoes daily to absorb the required amount of Lycopene that's scientifically shown to help promote a healthy pressure profile.*
