OPC and High Blood Pressure
OPC Defuses High Blood Pressure
"French researchers have found that grape seed OPC increased capillary resistance by 25 percent in patients with high blood pressure and/or diabetes, compared with those taking a placebo sugar pill. Exciting new research by Professor Peter Rohdewald, a leading pharmaceutical researcher at the University of Münster in Germany, shows that pine bark OPC reduces adrenaline stress reactions that trigger high blood pressure. In animals, brain damage from strokes was much less in those first given OPC."
