who can benefit from Pressure Optimizer?
Healthy individuals who are interested in blood pressure support may find Presure Optimizer of interest
what distinguishes Pressure Optimizer?
• Clinically-studied ingredients like AmealPeptide : patented lactotripeptides (Val-Pro-Pro & Ile-Pro-Pro) and MegaNatural-BP grape seed extract
• superior botanical extracts GlycoStat wild bitter melon (15:1) extract and Sesaplex sesame seed extract
• 100mg magnesium and 250mg celery seed extract
• EasySolv tablets
how does each active ingredient function in Pressure Optimizer?
• lactotripeptides (IPP and VPP) produced by fermentation of milk proteins they support bood pressure health and arterial compliance
• wild bitter melon extract (Momordica charantia) may beneficially affect nitric oxide production and the angiotensin renin system
• sesame seed extract supports antioxidant mechanisms, including the recycling of various forms of vitamin E in the body
• grape seed extract procyanidins found in grape seeds support vessel health, likely through effects on endothelium dependent vasodilation
• celery seed extract traditionally used as a kidny tonic because of diuretic properties, components of celery seed may have beneficial effects on microvessels
• magnesium (Mg) deficiency has been associated with elevated blood pressure in epidemiological studies. Magnesium helps to relax blood vessels.
The combination of the above active ingredients provides a natural alternative for supporting healthy blood pressure.

Clinically-studied milk tripeptides
The tripeptides, isoleucyl-prolyl-proline (IPP) and valyl-prolyl-proline (VPP), have been isolated from various dairy products, especially as a result of the action of enzymes found in L. helveticus and A. oryzae action on milk proteins. AmealPeptide is produced via bacterial proteolysis of casein.
In human clinical research, AmealPeptide has shown positive effects on blood-pressure health, particularly in those who have not previously taken blood-pressure medication. In general, lactotripeptides have demonstrated positive clinical effects while also showing evidence of helping vessels respond in a healthy manner to changes in pressure.
Grape Seed Procyanidins
Grape (Vitis vinifera L.) seeds are high in phenolic oligomers and polymers called procyanidins. Procyanidins, from multiple sources, seem to affect the ability of blood vessels to relax. Grape seed procyanidins may also offer a degree of protection to vessels from oxidative and inflammatory stress, which can lead to their dysfunction. In clinical studies, MegaNatural-BP grape seed extract (GSE) has shown evidence for positive effects in promoting healthy vessels after 6-8 weeks of use.
Sesame (Sesamum indicum) seed has been clinically demonstrated to reduce the metabolism of tocopherols and tocotrienols (forms of vitamin E) in the human body. This may represent a way to increase effective levels of various forms of vitamin E in the body without actual consumption. As a class of lipid-soluble compounds, vitamin E possesses various antioxidant and cardio-protective effects promoting healthy, open vessels. In addition, the sesame seed lignans, sesamin and sesamolin, may directly mediate similar effects in the body offering protection from oxidative and inflammatory stress to the vasculature. Sesaplex is standardized for both sesamin and sesamolin content.
Bitter melon for better wellin’
Bitter melon (Momordica charantia) has been used traditionally in various cultures for blood-sugar, blood-lipid, and blood-pressure effects. Animal data support prospects related to blood pressure via effects on nitric oxide production and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE).
Glycostat is a (15:1) water-extract of wild-type bitter melon fruit standardized to contain at least 6% bitters and 5% charantin. Glycostat appears to have superior properties to other commercially available bitter melon preparations that have been standardized to either bitters or charantin.
Celery (Apium graveolens) has been traditionally used in kidney tonics because of apparent diuretic action and other physiological effects. It is believed that 3-n-butylphthalide (NBP), a substance unique to celery and concentrated in celery seed volatile oils, is the main active component relating to effects on the vasculature. NBP appears to increase blood flow in cerebral microvessels. Another component of celery, apigenin, may also possess related action.

Heart disease: what are the differences between men and women?
Past week there was attention for new documentary called "De slag om het vrouwenhart", made by Hella de Jong, in which she relates about her quest for heart health. She suspected health problems, but wasn't sure why. After having been told her problems were psychosomatic, caused by her parents' traumatic WWII experiences, she wasn't satisfied and kept pushing for more research. Finally she got a massive heart attack while perfoming a stress test in the hospital.
This interview sent me on an immediate flashback to 1985, when my mom felt ill enough to visit the hopital after what was probably a minor heart attack. Her complaints weren't taken very seriously, yet they admitted her to hospital, though without being tied to a heart monitor. It was here she died that same day in the presence of my brother. When listening to Hella's story it seems there hasn't changed much in 35 years.
For a very long time, women were not taken into consideration when research was conducted on heart diseasae. Nor were they taken seriously when they went to their doctors with health complaints. Yet, among women, heart disease has also become the leading cause of death.
Determining heart disease risk in women
Women and men share many heart disease risk factors, but recent studies are showing what previous male-focused studies have not shown: Women also have their own unique heart disease risk factors.
Traditional risk factors common to both women and men:
- high blood pressure
- family history
- metabolic syndrome – the co-existence of high blood pressure, obesity, and high glucose and triglyceride levels
- high levels of C-reactive protein – a sign of inflammatory disease that can occur along with other cardiovascular risk factors
Some risk factors that relate specifically to women or that can affect women disproportionately include:
- relatively high testosterone levels prior to menopause
- increasing hypertension during menopause
- autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis – more common in women than in men
- stress and depression are more common among women
- low risk factor awareness: lack of recognition of many of the above conditions as risk factors for heart disease is a risk factor in itself
Pets and your health
The strength of the human animal bond has been known for a long time, but scientific studies were only conducted fairly recently.
The very first study was published only about 40 years ago when 2 American psychology researchers measured what happens physically when a person pets a friendly and familiar dog. They found that the person's blood pressure lowered, heart rate slowed, breathing became more regular and muscle tension relaxed-all of which are signs of reduced stress.
Hypertension and stressMention hypertension and the first thought most have is too much salt. This is only partially true. More important risk factors are obesity, diabetes, drinking too much alcohol, smoking and family history.
You may add stress to this list of predictive factors. Young Swedish conscripts that were categorized as 'easily stressed', had a far higher chance to get hypertension later in life, especially when they were already overweight as a young adult and also developed diabetes.
