Maintain Healthy Blood Pressure with the Help of Olive Leaves and Fruit
TrueBP™ Blood Pressure Support is formulated with three botanical extracts.
The first of these is the proprietary MegaNatural®-BP Grape Seed Extract, which is made from California white wine grapes. This patented extract contains over 90% grape seed polyphenols. MegaNatural®-BP helps maintain healthy levels of both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
The patented Benolea® (EFLA®943) is made from the finest leaves of the olive tree. As important, the leaves are made into powder using the EFLA® HyperPure process, which maximizes the concentration of oleuropein – the key blood pressure supporting compound – and other complementary polyphenols. Like with MegaNatural®-BP, Benolea® supports both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
You may be familiar with black chokeberries, which are more formally known as aronia berries. These berries have one of the highest concentrations of natural phenolic acid antioxidants of any edible berry.
TrueBP™ includes the Aronox® aronia berry extract. Aronox® provides a third botanical ingredient that helps you maintain both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. What’s more, Aronox® also helps you maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
For optimal results, it’s recommended you take two servings of TrueBP™ twice a day (a total of four capsules) for the first eight weeks, and one serving of TrueBP™ daily thereafter.
MegaNatural®-BP: The Patented Grape Seed Extract
One of the first modern doctors to utilize grapes for blood pressure health was John Harvey Kellogg, M.D., - who also started the Kellogg cereal empire. According to published accounts, Dr. Kellogg used to prescribe 10 to 14 pounds of grapes daily for blood pressure health!
Fortunately, science has come a long way and with MegaNatural®-BP you now have a much more practical solution.
MegaNatural®-BP is a highly concentrated grape seed extract standardized to contain at least 90% polyphenols – the key blood pressure supporting compounds.
Each batch of MegaNatural®-BP is made in California from a special blend of unfermented wine grapes by Polyphenolics, a division of Constellation Brands – the world’s leading premium wine company.
The relationship between Polyphenolics and its parent company results in a uniquely sustainable model of agriculture wherein all parts of the grape are utilized. The grape juice is used to make wine and the unfermented grape seeds are used to manufacture MegaNatural®-BP.
The grape seeds are put through a patented hot-water based extraction process without any traces of toxic chemicals or solvents in the final ingredient.
Every lot of MegaNatural®-BP is rigorously tested for heavy metals, pesticides and microbiological contaminants to ensure purity and safety.
MegaNatural®-BP works by helping to stimulate nitric oxide which allows smooth muscle in blood vessels to relax, supporting healthy blood flow.
Benolea®: Overcoming the Hidden Problem with Most Olive Leaf Products
The olive tree is one of the oldest known cultivated plants and has a strong symbolic character: it stands for peace and strength.
Olive leaves have traditionally been used in folk medicine for centuries. For example, the ancient Greeks used olive leaves both externally to treat wounds and internally to combat numerous health concerns.
If you’ve tried olive leaf for blood pressure benefits before, there's a good chance you were disappointed with your results. This is because many olive leaf extracts have extremely low levels of the compound that helps support healthy blood pressure – which is called oleuropein.
Oleuropein is a very delicate compound. If it’s not processed correctly, oleuropein quickly breaks down into a by-product called hydroxytyrosol. Although hydroxytyrosol is a beneficial nutrient, unlike oleuropein, hydroxytyrosol has almost no blood pressure benefits.
To maximize oleuropein content, Benolea® is made using a proprietary extraction process called EFLA HyperPure, which preserves as much oleuropein as possible. As a result, Benolea® contains around 20% pure oleuropein, which is far more than typically found in other olive leaf ingredients.
Benolea also contains other polyphenols from olive leaf that support cardiovascular health. For example, Benolea® has been shown to help maintain healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels in addition to blood pressure support.
