Blood Pressure is a scientifically supported nutritional solution to help retain healthy blood pressure by helping to promote healthy blood vessels and blood flow. If your blood pressure is slowly increasing over time but still at a healthy level, that’s the ideal time to add nitrates to support keeping your blood pressure in a normal range.
Studies have shown the key ingredients in Shaklee Blood Pressure address two important mechanisms that are known to impact blood pressure levels already in the normal range.
- Promotes blood circulation
- Promotes healthy blood vessels
