Phyto Powers support for lowering BP
Need a great natural product to support the lowering of high blood pressure for your patients in need?
Phyto Power is a great choice.
Flavanol-rich diets have been reported to exert beneficial effects in preventing cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension. Phyto Power’s rosehip seeds are rich in the flavanols catechin and epicatechin.
In their research entitled: Epicatechin lowers blood pressure, restores endothelial function, and decreases oxidative stress and endothelin-1 and NADPH oxidase activity in DOCA-salt hypertension, (Free Radic Biol Med 2012 Jan1;52(1):70-9) — Gomez-Guzman et al concluded that epicatechin prevents hypertension, proteinuria and vascular dysfunction. Epicatechin also induced a reduction in ET-1 release, systemic and vascular oxidative stress, and inhibition of NADPH oxidase activity.
Sourcing for products with high actives is important. Here is a comparison of the flavanol content of our Alaskan wildcrafted rosehip used in Phyto Power with that of the dog rose from Germany and Europe: Alaskan Rosehip catechin = 72.05 mg/g verses the Dog Rose = 35.70 mg/g, and the Alaskan Rosehip epicatechin = 67.50 mg/g verses 33.7 mg/g for the Dog Rose.
Taking two Phyto Power capsules a day, gives you the equivalent of eating 6 of these precious rose hips from the wild. You are getting the whole rosehip, seeds and all.
