Grape seed extract is well-known in the health community to be an antioxidant which has many health benefits related to the heart, blood vessels and brain.*
What is not usually known is that there are 2 factors that play important roles when choosing which kind of grape seed extract is best:
These two factors will determine whether you fully absorb, utilize and get the full benefits of the grape seed extract you are ingesting. It is useless to ingest grape seed extract that will only be thrown away by your body or only partially absorbed.
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.
All of this means nothing, unless it's also backed by science.
Two placebo-controlled human clinical trials conducted by researchers at the Department of Preventive Cardiology, University of California Davis School of Medicine, have found that MegaNatural-BP supports blood pressure within the normal range.* No other grape seed extract can say the same, since MegaNatural-BP has a unique structure and composition.10
You may see the results of the clinical studies in the below chart, but one thing to keep in mind is that Blood Pressure Optimizer™ uses the MAXIMUM clinically proven dosage of 300 mgs of MegaNatural-BP.11,12
THIS is why our product has continually seen positive results in users.
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.
The minimum effective dose is suggested to be standardized extract 300 mg daily, and maximum benefit appears after 6 to 8 weeks of use.16
Blood Pressure Optimizer™ utilizes English Hawthorne at the maximum extract (standardized to 3.2% vitexin-2-rhamnosides and 2% flavonoids) at the correct scientifically proven dosage of 900 mgs daily16.
NO other supplement formula on the market contains this maximum and proven dosage. THIS is why our product has continually seen positive results in users.
Magnesium (Mg) is a not-so-celebrated mineral and yet it is essential for over 300 different chemical reactions in the body.
Our bodies need it for maintaining energy levels, for muscle relaxation and for keeping healthy functions of our heart and blood vessels.*
It was found in a study of more than 8,500 people that a higher intake of magnesium may decrease the risk of higher pressure levels.*22
Because of the extreme importance of this vital mineral, Blood Flow Optimizer™ utilizes 4 specific forms for maximum absorption and tolerance, based on clinical studies.
Celery is a simple food with a complex chemical makeup. Studies show that celery seed components produce a relaxing, dilating effect that helps pressure levels.*
This appears to occur, at least in part, by blocking or antagonizing the flow of calcium into muscle cells lining blood vessels—similar to the action performed by some medications, but without the negative drug side-effects.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 150 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 for faster & better results. 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
Blood Pressure Optimizer™ uses the highest 5:1 extract, which means improved potency without the calories. Non-GMO and organic.
Recent studies have demonstrated that an amino acid called Arginine has multiple health effects for your heart, brain, muscle, circulation and more.*
So how does arginine work its wonders? The answer lies in its ability to produce nitric oxide (NO), a simple gas made up of nitrogen and oxygen that performs some amazing feats in the human body.*
Nitric oxide penetrates and crosses the membranes of almost all cells in the body, and it helps regulate many cellular functions. It is even involved in memory function.*
In blood vessels, "NO" is vitally important because it regulates the tone of the endothelium, the layer of smooth cells that line the inside of the vessels.
If these endothelial cells become dysfunctional, they can cause spasms or constrictions of the blood vessels that can then lead to increased pressure levels.
Arginine Alpha Keto-glutarate is a form of arginine we use in Blood Pressure Optimizer™ because it's much more potent than regular L-Arginine and thus, less is required.
In this special form, the absorption of arginine is maximized and its bioavailability increased. This ensures that the maximum health effects are achieved.
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.*
Blood Flow Optimizer™ provides and easily accessible form of Lycopene at the correct researched 5% extract dose. This helps the body absorb more of it for the required health and heart benefits.
We've also added specific vitamins and minerals, scientifically shown to help promote and maintain healthier pressure levels and vascular function, within a normal and youthful range.
