The cells building our blood vessel walls must get all the nutrition they need for proper function of our cardiovascular system and to maintain healthy blood pressure.
To assure optimal blood flow through our blood vessel pipeline, our arteries constantly contract and relax. Maintaining this rhythm requires an unceasing supply of specific vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other biologically active micronutrients.
The Dr. Rath Healthy Blood Pressure Synergy Formula is the result of pioneering research proving that micronutrients must be combined in specific teams, working in synergy, for maximum biological effect. The selected nutrients in the formula provide the vascular cells with essential biological factors needed for optimal vascular metabolism and to help maintain a healthy blood pressure.*
Dr. Rath Healthy Blood Pressure Synergy Formula has been developed from the Relavit formula.
Key Synergy Nutrients: Vitamin C, Arginine, Chondroitin Sulfate, N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine, L-Lysine, L-Proline and many others.
Vitamin C and Citrus bioflavonoids: Vitamin C is needed for the production of prostacyclins, which support blood vessel relaxation and normal blood viscosity. Vitamin C in a form of mineral ascorbates is gentle on the stomach. Citrus bioflavonoids support many functions of vitamin C in the body, including healthy blood vessel function.
Arginine: Arginine is the only source of nitric oxide (NO) in the human body. Nitric oxide acts as the ‘relaxing factor’ for blood vessel walls and therefore it is important in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. Arginine is a ‘conditionally essential’ amino acid.
Magnesium: Magnesium is required for the production of prostaglandins, which have a significant impact on contraction and relaxation of blood vessels. In addition, optimum interaction of magnesium with calcium and other minerals is important for maintaining normal blood pressure. Magnesium reduces intracellular sodium thus regulating the levels of sodium, potassium and calcium within the cells.
Garlic Extract (Allicin): Allicin is the sulfur containing compound present in garlic. In addition to its antioxidant properties, allicin acts as a direct vasodilator through its ability to activate nitric oxide synthetase (NOS), the enzyme which produces nitric oxide (NO), and contributes to the relaxation of blood vessels.
Rooibos Tea: Rooibos tea is rich in antioxidants, is caffeine-free, and is low in tannins. Rooibos tea also supports blood vessel relaxation.
Green Tea Extract: Polyphenols in green tea support flexibility of blood vessel walls for vessel relaxation. They function as antioxidant agents inactivating free radicals.
Curcumin: Supports blood flow and the elasticity of blood vessels.
