A "miracle sachet" of natural ingredients promising to help maintain a healthy blood pressure is launched today. help: blood pressure soluble food supplement contains dairy peptides, which are clinically proven to help control hypertension - or high blood pressure.
Dairy peptides, which occur naturally in dairy foods help maintain a healthy blood pressure by preventing the constriction of blood vessels(1).
One in four middle aged adults suffer from high blood pressure. For the adult population as a whole it is 40% with increasing risk as we get older. According to the Blood Pressure Association there are 16 million people in the UK living with high blood pressure and 5.3million in addition are undiagnosed.
Known as the "silent killer" as there are no easily apparent symptoms, high blood pressure can lead to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney disease and dementia. Once diagnosed, many people spend the rest of their lives on medication which is usually increased as the patient gets older.
Studies have shown that 0.75g per day of hydrolysed milk protein is sufficient to show clinically relevant effects in both hypertensives and mild hypertensives. Each 4g sachet of help: blood pressure contains 0.38g of Dairy Peptides which contributes half of the required daily dose. It is recommended that help: blood pressure is consumed twice a day for a minimum of four weeks in conjunction with a healthy diet and a reduced salt intake.
The majority of us will suffer from hypertension (high blood pressure) at some point during our lifetime. There are many factors that can lead to elevated blood pressure levels such as poor lifestyle or simply genetic predisposition, but one of the most common is the restriction of blood vessels triggered by the hormone angiontensin 11. ACE causes blood vessels to constrict and narrow, effectively raising blood pressure.
Developed specifically for those with mild hypertension, help: blood pressure acts as a natural blocker of this reaction. When the restriction is inhibited, elevation of blood pressure can be prevented and kept at a healthy level.
Available in a flavourless soluble powder that can be added to any hot or cold drink or soft food of choice, help: blood pressure is free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives and is suitable for vegetarians, diabetics and those who are lactose intolerant.
help: blood pressure contains only naturally derived, non-prescription ingredients; dairy peptides (0.38g) and Oligofructose (3.62g), which is a natural source of soluble fibre.
help: blood pressure is not intended for use as a replacement for medication that is prescribed in hypertension treatment. There are no adverse side effects and whilst it is effective in helping control elevated blood pressure it does not adversely affect normal blood pressure.
help: blood pressure is available from July 2009 in trial packs (14 sachets) priced at £12.99 or a months supply (60 sachets) at £54.99.
