What Makes This Product Unique?
Heart Health™ Blood Pressure and Vascular Support, a cutting-edge formula for blood pressure and vascular health, is ideal for individuals looking to support healthy blood pressure or maintain blood pressure within a normal range for their age group. Blood pressure can be influenced by several factors and remembering to keep on top of it can easily skip our minds. In addition to watching your weight, getting regular exercise, and eating a healthy diet, this formula can help you obtain extra health benefits by promoting vascular performance during fitness activity, functioning of the heart, and protection against increased levels of oxidative stress and free radicals. Tackle your working day with a powerful combination of grape seed extract and lycopene for healthy blood pressure and cardiovascular vitality.
Maybe you are an executive with stress-related concerns, a tad overweight, wanting to promote cholesterol levels within healthy ranges or looking to be proactive with family history and heart health. Maybe you are looking to support your athletic performance, maintain blood pressure, support the function of the heart and circulatory system, or just interested in a non-Rx blood pressure supplement alternative. Heart Health™ Blood Pressure and Vascular Support was designed to aid those in maintaining their blood pressure and acquire all the health benefits that can accompany it. This supplement’s unique formula is comprised of grape seed extract (crushed grape seeds derived from grape plants) and lycopene (a natural plant chemical known for its antioxidant-rich properties), which have scientifically demonstrated their ability to promote blood vessel integrity by supporting arterial and circulatory functioning.
Your blood pressure number is a result of the amount of pressure your arteries undergo as blood pumps away from your heart (systolic BP – top number) and the pressure your arteries undergo as blood is pumped back into your heart (diastolic BP – bottom number). Research has revealed that those looking to support their blood pressure within healthy ranges and consumed 300 mg of grape seed extract for eight weeks, exhibited significantly lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure than the placebo group. Heart Health™ Blood Pressure and Vascular Support’s active ingredients work together to help maintain vascular health such as normal blood flow and healthy vessels (including blood flow to the eyes, kidneys, and brain); which plays a major role in promoting healthy blood pressure levels. Additionally, grape seed extract and lycopene have both shown evidence in supporting normal tumor necrosing factor (TNFa), an important factor that assists your body in overall health, immune function, and longevity. Their overall ability to maintain a healthy antioxidant environment by neutralizing free radicals can provide antioxidant protection against “bad cholesterol" LDL particles and promote a healthy prostate.
As blood pressure increases, the arteries work harder to supply the proper amount of blood and oxygen to your organs and back to your heart. Extended periods with blood pressure outside of healthy ranges can lead to increased risk for cardiovascular decline, especially with advancing years and physical stress. It is paramount that you periodically check and know where your blood pressure stands so you can better understand what steps you can take to work toward keeping it within a normal range for your age group. Heart Health™ Blood Pressure and Vascular Support is a simplistic formula offering ingredients that work together to promote healthy blood pressure by supporting cardiovascular, circulatory, and arterial functioning.
Help maintain your vascular health and get back to your day with a formula that can help support the functioning of the heart and circulatory system.

Grape Seed Extract 300 mg
Grape seed extract is typically extracted from the seeds of red grapes (instead of white), which have a high content of compounds known as oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). Grape seed extract is extremely rich in polyphenols, compounds with high antioxidant activity. It is these compounds that play a part in the numerous health benefits from grape seed. In addition to being a powerful antioxidant, it has been shown to be a proven ingredient for cardiovascular health by supporting blood vessel dilation, which in turn supports healthy blood flow and healthy blood pressure levels. Studies suggest grape seed extract also works to promote normal circulation. Grape catechins provide antioxidant protection for low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles, a contributing mechanism for supporting cardiovascular health.
Lycopene 15 mg
Fruits and vegetables, such as tomatoes, pink grapefruit and watermelon receive their red pigmentation from a carotene called Lycopene. Lycopene is one of the carotenes and a member of the carotenoid family. Lycopene offers a wide range of benefits in helping maintain healthy cardiovascular health, prostate health and it is also a powerful antioxidant. Lycopene has been shown to have an important role in maintaining cardiovascular health, including supporting the lining of arterial blood vessels (the endothelium), this in turn allows for healthy blood flow and healthy blood pressure levels. Lycopene has been shown in numerous studies to exert a favorable effect in supporting cardiovascular health.
Those looking for additional support for healthy blood pressure in adults and athletes, as well as those interested in promoting their arterial and circulatory functioning.
