MegaNatural®-BP is made in California from a special seed blend from unfermented varietal wine and juice grapes. The seeds are extracted with hot water, the extract is purified, concentrated and spray dried, loading natural grape phenolics into the extract, and that extract powder is used as an ingredient for dietary supplements, functional foods, and healthy beverages.
MegaNatural®-BP is a patented grape seed extract with clinically shown benefits. In fact, two placebo-controlled human clinical trials conducted by researchers at the Department of Preventative 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. These studies evaluated subjects with blood pressure levels in the normal to prehypertensive ranges. One clinical, involving patients with Metabolic Syndrome, showed incidental blood pressure reductions, averaging 12 mmHg for systolic and 8 mmHg for diastolic pressures. In another study, participants with prehypertension took 300 mg of MegaNatural®-BP once a day for two months, and blood pressure monitoring averaged in systolic readings 8 mmHg lower and diastolic pressure lower by 5 mmHg. These studies indicate that MegaNatural®-BP may offer a significant benefit for people with technically healthy blood pressure that typically ranges on the upper end of normal, a condition known as “prehypertension.”
