High Blood Pressure and Lyc-O-Mato

 Rebound To Health - Get Fit For Life! 

65 million people in the U.S. have high blood pressure. That’s one out of every three adults. And with no symptoms, many are unaware they even have it – which is why it is often called “the silent killer.”

Most doctors treat hypertension with drugs – drugs that are expensive and carry significant risks. But new research shows there is a promising natural alternative – lycopene.  Numerous studies have shown that lycopene – a powerful antioxidant found in tomatoes – can protect against prostate cancer, breast cancer, and heart disease.

And a recent trial published in the American Heart Journal suggests that it can lower blood pressure too.  Researchers studied the effects of a lycopene supplement called Lyc-O-Mato on 31 participants whose blood pressure was mildly elevated. (Unlike isolated lycopene, Lyc-O-Mato extracts and concentrates the entire complex of phytonutrients that are found in tomatoes.) The results indicated an average 10-point reduction in systolic blood pressure and a 9-point drop in diastolic pressure. The researchers considered this reduction to be significant.   

You can find this inexpensive supplement in your local health food store or online. Research has also shown exercise to be extremely beneficial in treating a host of ailments, so get on your rebounder for a few minutes a day and boost your immune system with fun and easy exercise.
