Cardio Vascular Health

Nutrition research has shown that Enzogenol supports cardiovascular health through supporting healthy endothelial function (blood vessel elasticity), healthy plasma viscosity, healthy fibrinogen levels and healthy blood pressure.*






Maintaining healthy blood circulation is one of the most important health concerns for many people, and Enzogenol delivers just the right nutritional support.*

Basal and hyperaemic blood flow in forearm resistance vessels measured by plethysmography increased significantly during the study indicating healthy endothelial function. Plasma viscosity was reduced by a small but clinically significant amount. Systolic blood pressure was changed from 130 mm Hg to 123 mm Hg after 6 weeks indicating the supporting effects of Enzogenol for healthy blood pressure.*

These findings demonstrate how Enzogenol contributes to supporting healthy blood circulation, healthy blood vessel function and healthy blood pressure, all important factors for a healthy cardiovascular system.*
