MegaNatural®-BP is made in California from a special seed blend primarily from varietal white wine grapes. The seeds are extracted with hot water, the extract is purified, concentrated and spray dried, loading natural grape phenolics into the extract, and that extract powder is used as an ingredient for dietary supplements, functional foods, and healthy beverages.
MegaNatural®-BP is a patented grape seed extract that has been evaluated in human clinical studies at the UC Davis Department of Internal Medicine. Studies evaluated subjects with blood pressure levels in the normal to prehypertensive ranges. One clinical, involving patients with Metabolic Syndrome, showed incidental blood pressure reductions, averaging 12 mmHg for systolic and 8 mmHg for diastolic pressures. In another study, participants with prehypertension took 300 mg of MegaNatural®-BP once a day for two months, and blood pressure monitoring averaged in systolic readings 8 mmHg lower and diastolic pressure lower by 5 mmHg. These studies indicate that MegaNatural®-BP may offer a significant benefit for people with technically healthy blood pressure that typically ranges on the upper end of normal, a condition known as “prehypertension.”
