A Grape Seed Extract that can Lower Blood Pressure


In a new study out of the University of California, Davis, researchers report that a specific grape seed extract (branded as MegaNatural-BP) was associated with significant reductions in systolic and diastolic blood pressure in those with pre-hypertension.

Previously, a study using MegaNatural-BP found blood-pressure lowering effects at doses as low as 150 mg per day. However, in this study the dose was 300 mg daily. After eight weeks of daily supplementation, systolic BP came down by 8 mmHg and diastolic by 5 mmHg.

Although this was small study, it was well-designed (randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled) study, and the placebo group didn't see any blood pressure effects.

There you have it...a short and sweet post--for all you busy people, including me.
