Let’s get acquainted with the excellent quartet of natural botanicals (Hawthorn, Garlic, Olive Leaf and Hibiscus flower powder) that synergistically work in our BP BalanzTM functional nutrition formulation (together with vitamin C and 4 members of the vitamin B-complex plus Buchu, Uva-Ursi & Green Tea Leaf and Juniper Berry) to Provide Support to Healthy Blood Pressure Levels Already Within The Normal Range :
Hawthorn extract (from leaf and flower) is a traditional herbal support for heart health and cardio wellness. Its cardiovascular benefits are primarily due to the unique complement of flavonoid (antioxidant) compounds found in its leaves, berries and blossoms, particularly anthocyanidins and proanthocyanidins. These active constituents help reduce high blood pressure, and clinical studies have proven that supplementation with Hawthorn extract can be a safe, natural method to treat mild to moderate hypertension. Hawthorn has been shown to provide three distinctive physiological effects, namely: ACE inhibition, calcium-channel blocking, and vasodilation via nitric oxide release, each of which contributes to its natural anti-hypertensive properties
On the other hand, research studies – of 12 consecutive week treatment – on humans found supplements of dried Garlic bulb powder containing a guaranteed dose of the active ingredient Allicin to lead to reductions in blood pressure. Garlic is thought to counter high blood pressure because it stimulates production of the chemicals Nitric oxide and Hydrogen Sulphide, which helps relax blood vessels.
Current clinical studies have also shown that Olive Leaf Extract may help lower blood pressure in people with high blood pressure) – as it has shown to help expand blood vessels and be effective in lowering systolic and diastolic blood pressures in subjects with stage-1 hypertension and comparable to the effects of a well known ACE inhibitor (ACE stands for angiotensin converting enzyme) called Captopril.
And last but not least, we’ve added Hibiscus flower powder, which is rich in vitamin C, fruit acids, antioxidant polyphenols and potassium. Its blood pressure lowering action is mostly due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on blood vessel walls to improve their elasticity and ability to dilate. It has also demonstrated to exert a diuretic action which flushes excess fluid and sodium/salt from the body, and to inhibit the angiotensin converting enzyme in the same way as ACE inhibitor drugs.
