The Super Nutrient For a Younger Heart

The most beneficial, natural dietary food supplement for heart health is grape seed extract.  It can lower blood pressure, prevent plaque formation in the arteries and keep blood vessels from becoming stiff and inflexible.  In middle aged women, grape seed extract reduced blood pressure and increased muscle mass while reducing body fat as well as relieving menopause hot flash symptoms. 

In a human study with high blood pressure, 93% of those taking grape seed extract saw their blood pressure return to normal levels.  It may take up to three months to regulate the blood pressure.  In people with elevated cholesterol, grape seed reduced the oxidation of the LDL cholesterol, the first step in plaque formation, a greater factor in reducing heart disease than lowering cholesterol.  In animal models of obesity, grape seed extract protects the heart from oxidative stress and damage, and inflammation.
