Patient One BP-One™ is a comprehensive nutrition support protocol for the management of healthy blood pressure and related systems. This formula supplies natural K2 and a proprietary blend of unique, cardio-supportive ingredients selected for their superior bioavailability and extensive scientific validation. BP-One supports nitric oxide production – dilating blood vessels for free-flowing circulation, arterial flexibility and optimal wellness.
An ultra-pure form of vitamin K2, VitaMK7 exhibits the highest bioavailability and longest half-life in the blood. A benefit of longer half-life time of MK7 is that it is available longer than K1 for uptake by extrahepatic tissues to perform their function of moving cholesterol to the liver for excretion. K2 promotes arterial flexibility by modulating calcium metabolism – helping to keep the mineral in the skeletal system and out of the bloodstream. K2 promotes healthy circulation and helps maintain blood pressure that is already in a normal range.
Nitric oxide (NO) is important in maintaining the function of the interior lining of your arteries (endothelium). When NO is present in the inner lining of the blood vessels, it causes the surrounding smooth muscle to relax. This endothelium-dependent relaxation of the blood vessels then supports healthy blood flow. Arginine is a key precursor to nitric oxide, a vasodilator which promotes peak circulation and optimizes diverse aspects of circulatory-dependent wellness. Arginine promotes blood vessel health, optimizes circulation, and promotes blood vessel relaxation.
AmealPeptide is a clinically tested ingredient derived from casein (a milk protein). It is produced through a patented fermentation and enzymatic process that releases two key tripeptides, Valyl-Prolyl-Proline (VPP) and Isoleucyl-Prolyl-Proline (IPP), (made up of the three amino acid chains valine, proline and isoleucine). AmealPeptide provides VPP and IPP in concentrations not practical to achieve through the consumption of dairy products.
AmealPeptide works by inhibiting an enzyme that leads to the constriction of blood vessels. This vasodilating action is believed to be at least partly responsible for AmealPeptide’s clinically documented effect on blood pressure.
Supported by more than 30 published studies — including over a dozen double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trials — AmealPeptide helps maintain both systolic and diastolic blood pressure already within healthy limits and promotes arterial elasticity.
While it is made from milk protein, the lactose levels in AmealPeptide are undetectable (under .05%), so it is safe for those with lactose intolerance.
MegaNatural®-BP Grape Seed extract:
A grape seed extract standardized to 90% total Phenolics, MegaNatural-BP supplies beneficial compounds and antioxidants from a special seed blend from California-grown red and white wine grapes. With its unique structure and composition, including lower molecular weight oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), MegaNatural improves bioavailability and absorption – optimizing grape seed’s ability to stabilize blood vessels, promote circulation and influence blood pressure pathways. Research indicates that MegaNatural-BP activates the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) to produce nitric oxide.
RC-NOS™ Rutaecarpine extract:
RC-NOS™ is rutaecarpine, an alkaloid extracted from the Traditional Chinese Wellness herb Evodia rutaecarpa (also called Wu-Chu-Yu). This bioactive is a vasorelaxant that has been shown to promote output of nitric oxide from endothelial cells, causing vascular smooth muscles to relax. RC-NOS optimizes arterial flexibility and healthy circulation and has been shown to inhibit platelet aggregation and to exhibit hypotensive action.
