GRAPE SEED EXTRACT LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE

Grape seed extract supplements appear to lower blood pressure in people with metabolic syndrome. These findings were presented at the American Chemical Society Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta.

The 1-month study involved 24 patients diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. The patients were divided into 3 groups of 8. The first group received a placebo, while the second and third groups received 150 milligrams and 300 milligrams, respectively, of a new grape seed extract. All participants’ blood pressure was automatically measured and recorded for 12 hours after ingestion.”

Participants in the 2 groups receiving grape seed extract experienced an equal degree of reduced blood pressure. The average drop in systolic pressure was 12 millimeters. The average drop in diastolic pressure was 8 millimeters,” said the study’s lead researcher, C. Tissa Kappagoda.

Kappagoda adds that the group taking 300 milligrams of grape seed extract also had reduced serum oxidized LDL cholesterol levels.
