High blood pressure can lead to heart attacks, kidney
failure, and brain damage. But many people never know that they have it until
it is too late. That’s why it is known as the “silent killer.”
f your blood pressure numbers are sneaking upward, or you
have a family history of high blood pressure and want to prevent hypertension,
you have a natural choice. Olive leaf and tannin-free grape seed extracts
provide safe, effective control without side effects. Together, they will:
Protect your heart and arteries
Stop inflammation and oxidative damage
Relax blood vessels
Normalize blood pressure levels
High blood pressure needs to be taken seriously. When plaque
buildup in the arteries and veins leads to narrower vessels and increased blood
pressure, your heart works harder and harder to keep blood circulating. And
when that happens, it can lead to:
- Heart failure
- Heart attack
- Vision problems and blindness
- Kidney failure
Olive oil and extract from olive leaves are both good
medicine for your heart.
Researchers believe that a combination of antioxidant
activity (much more powerful than vitamin E) which protects the walls of the
blood vessels, and vasodilating activity (widening narrow blood vessels so that
blood flows more easily and with less effort by the heart) account for the
blood pressure reducing effects of olive leaf.
Grape Seed Extract
The oligomeric proanthocyanidins – OPCs – from grape seed
are compounds that do much of the extract’s heavy lifting. But there’s a catch:
the OPCs must be small enough to be easily absorbed so they can be effective.
And that’s where you have to be careful in the kind of grape seed extract you
add to your regimen to control your blood pressure.
Many extracts contain tannins, which are too large to be
effectively absorbed and therefore, won’t actually help you stay healthy.
That’s why Terry recommends a French grape seed extract that is standardized to
contain only OPCs that are small enough to be absorbed, so you’ll get
Managing your blood pressure is one of the healthiest gifts
you can give yourself. Keeping a sensible diet and exercising wisely, taking
time to relax, getting a good night’s sleep, and adding olive leaf and
tannin-free, 100% absorbable grape seed extract to your supplemental regimen
will help you live a long and happy life.
To get your blood pressure down and help your heart work
at its best, Terry suggests taking 500 mg of olive leaf extract and 100 mg of
French grape seed extract twice daily.
