Drinking Beat Juice to Lower Your Blood Pressure Naturally?
An estimated 30 percent of American adults have pre-hypertension, or elevated blood pressure, a condition that increases their risk of developing high blood pressure (i.e. hypertension) along with its potentially serious health consequences. Now there’s exciting new evidence that managing pre-hypertension may be as simple as enjoying a beverage made with a patented grape seed extract.
For the first time, a functional beverage made with the patented grape seed extract MegaNatural Gold created by Polyphenolics has shown to effectively lower blood pressure and support healthy blood pressure within a normal range. This is the third human clinical study, conducted by researchers at the Center for Nutrition Research, Institute of Food Safety and Health at the Illinois Institute of Technology, designed to test MegaNatural as a functional ingredient in a beverage.
In the randomized, placebo-controlled study, 36 pre-hypertensive adults were randomized to drink either a beverage formulated with MegaNatural or a placebo daily for six weeks. At the end of the study, those participants who consumed the drink containing the patented grape seed extract formula on average experienced significant reductions in systolic and diastolic blood pressure compared with those who consumed the placebo. For many, the reductions put them within a normal blood pressure range.
Results of the new Illinois Institute of Technology study were presented by Britt Burton-Freeman, Ph.D., and Eunyoung Park, RD, at Experimental Biology 2013, April 23, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
