Pycnogenol® May Improve Blood Markers in People at Risk of Heart Disease
A recent study suggests that taking a daily supplement of French Maritime Pine bark Â— also known as PycnogenolÂ® Â— may improve metabolic parameters, lower LDL cholesterol, and curb oxidative stress in people at high risk for coronary artery disease.
Participants in the study included 124 people, 32 hypertensives, 31 hyperlipidemics, 30 hyperglycemics, and 31 with normal parameter who acted as a control. The participants who were borderline in each group were given either the best management to control their symptoms or best management plus 150 mg per day of PycnogenolÂ®.
After 12 weeks, metabolic values and blood pressure were at normal levels in all of the subjects. The PycnogenolÂ® groups had Â“slightly betterÂ” values than the participants who did not take the supplement. Specifically, participants in the PycnogenolÂ® group saw a 66% improvement in endothelial function, a 20% reduction in oxidative stress
In the participants with borderline hyperlipidemia, the PycnogenolÂ® supplementation was associated with lower cholesterol levels and in the hyperlipidemics it was associated with lower fasting glucose levels.
The researchers theorized that the positive effects were due to the ability of PycnogenolÂ® to control oxidative stress.
Researchers from Chieti-Pescara University in Italy conducted the study. It was published in the February 2015 issue of International Angiology.
PycnogenolÂ® has been shown to help with high blood pressure, muscle soreness, osteoarthritis, diabetes, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, endometriosis, menopausal symptoms, ringing in the ears, erectile dysfunction and retinopathy.
Polyphenol-Rich Grape and Wine Extracts May Help Lower Blood Pressure
The cardiovascular benefits of the Mediterranean Diet have been partially attributed to the polyphenols found in grapes and red wine. A recent study suggests that polyphenol-rich grape juice and wine extracts may help lower blood pressure in people with untreated mild hypertension.
Participants in the study included 60 people who were give either the grape and wine extracts Â— containing 800 mg of polyphenols Â— together or just the grape extract alone.
At the conclusion of the study, the researchers noted a 3-mmHg decrease in systolic blood pressure and a 2-mmHg decrease in diastolic blood pressure in the combination supplement group. They also noted a 10% decrease in plasma concentrations of the vasoconstrictor endothelin-1.
The grape juice alone group showed no blood pressure benefit. Neither of the interventions affected LDL, HDL, or triglyceride levels.
Researchers from Unilever conducted the study. It was published on April 30, 2015, in the journal Nutrients.
Polyphenols have been shown to promote weight loss, improve heart health, aid in digestion and decrease the risk of neurodegenerative diseases.
