SUPPORTS HEALTHY VASCULAR RELAXATION AND CIRCULATORY FUNCTION‡
Magnesium supports healthy cellular electrolyte function and vascular smooth muscle cells. The importance of magnesium intake was
demonstrated in the 10 year follow-up of the Women’s Health Study, where higher intakes of dietary magnesium were associated with
maintaining healthy vascular relaxation. Both hawthorn and olive leaf have a long history of traditional use for maintaining cardiovascular
health and have supported vascular function in studies. Patent pending MegaNatural®-BP supports healthy blood vessel relaxation
in volunteers, as demonstrated in a study conducted at the University of California, Davis. MegaNatural®-BP grape seed is unique in that
the extraction process maximizes the concentration of monomeric and oligomeric procyanidins and minimizes the concentration of
polymeric procyanidins. Pomegranate, standardized to contain 40% punicosides, offers the antioxidant and vascular benefits associated
with pomegranate juice. CranLoad® delivers a unique cranberry and grape seed blend developed as part of an extensive research
program with the Institute of Nutrition and Functional Foods (INAF) and Université Laval in Quebec, Canada. In addition to possessing
antioxidant activity, these compounds offer specific vascular support mechanisms that are associated with enhanced endothelial function.
In a pilot trial involving elite athletes, CranLoad® provided statistically significant support for healthy flow-mediated dilation (FMD) at rest, an effect similar to arginine administration.‡

Dr. W's Comments: This is a great product for those with hypertension.  Even if you are on blood pressure medication, this can support the health of your blood vessel lining and over time, decrease your need for those medications.  Remember, all medications have side-effects!  The magnesium in this helps the heart work more effectively and with less strain; the hawthorn included is a great herb for nourishing the heart.  Its pomegranate extract as well as its olive leaf and grape seed – and even cranberry – extracts all help the lining of your blood vessels.  It is this thin lining of your blood vessels that is at the heart of healthy cardiovascular health.  This includes, importantly, the blood vessels that are involved in “heart bypass” surgeries.  If you have a tendency to this kind of problem – genetically or from past dietary problems (even if you don’t have blood pressure issues) – this is a great product to take regularly.  And keep this in mind: even if you don’t take this or other supports every day, taking it whenever you do – even if it’s only a couple times a week will give you some benefit!
