OLIVE with 6% OLEUROPEINE: OLEUROPEINE is the molecule responsible for the effect on the circulatory system. It acts as a vasodilator with a direct mechanism on the vascular musculature, like hypotensive and antiarrhythmic. It is excellent for preventing atherosclerosis and hypertension. Thanks to the phytocomplex and synergism of the active ingredients, olive is also useful in combating the symptoms associated with hypertension, such as headaches. It has a cholesterol-lowering and hypoglycemic effect. It helps with non-insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes.
MISTLETOE : It proves useful as a hypotensive, thanks to the presence of acetylcholine, tyramine,-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and of flavones. The way it works is not yet clear, but it is believed to act on parasympathetic stimulation with an inhibition of the vasomotor centre (Capasso, Pharmacognosy, Botany, Chemistry and pharmacology of medicinal plants, 2011). It also has immunostimulatory activity.
HAWTHORN with 1,5% VITEXINE:Thanks to the action of a flavonoid, VITEXINA, Hawthorn acts as a cardiac regulator: it regulates the heart rhythm, decreasing palpitations and, in case of anxiety, the perception of one's own heartbeat. It has a vasodilating action on the coronary muscles, with a positive inotropic effect. It is indicated in cases of angina, arrhythmias, palpitations, and heart failure. It also has sedative effect on the nervous system and is therefore useful for anxiety, sleep problems, and nervousness, with the advantage of not causing drowsiness.
PINEAPPLE: A plant with anti-inflammatory, anti-edema and digestive action. Its effects, due to proteolytic enzymes including BROMELINE, make it ideal in inflammatory and oedematous processes, and in the treatment of water retention and cellulite, as it is able to stimulate diuresis and favour the reabsorption of localized edema. Due to its diuretic properties it is used to lower blood pressure. These enzymes break down large proteins and accelerate digestion. Bromelain also prevents the accumulation of insulin in the blood and therefore the conversion of sugars into fats. It also contains VITAMIN C (about 20 mg per 100g of fruit and CAROTENOIDS responsible for the yellow color of the pulp) and FIBERS, necessary for the regular function of the digestive system.
LINDEN with 1% FLAVONOIDS :It appears in the European Pharmacopoeia IV. It is a sedative of the central nervous system and is useful as a regulator of pressure in anxious states. It promotes sleep and has an antispastic action on the vegetative system. It also acts as a bechico (cough suppressant) and antipyretic. It has diaphoretic properties, so it helps eliminate toxins through sweating.
COENZYME Q10: It is considered a vitamin-like factor and is naturally occurring in all organisms. Its function is necessary for cellular respiration. It is the ANTIOXIDANT par excellence because it significantly reduces the formation of free radicals, greatly increasing body's defenses. Successfully used in cosmetic creams as anti-aging. It has been shown that supplementing the Coenzyme Q10 can slow down the progress of Parkinson's disease (Dewick, Chimica, Biosintesi e Bioattività delle sostanze naturali, Piccin, 2012).
