LAS VEGAS, Nov. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Healthy Extracts Inc. ( HYEX), a leading innovator of clinically proven plant-based products for heart and brain health, has launched a new eight-part video series that begins with discussing natural ways to improve cardiovascular and sexual health with the ‘miracle molecule,’ nitric oxide.
In 1998, three scientists won a Nobel Prize for discovering nitric oxide and how it serves as a critical signaling molecule in the human circulatory system comprised of more than 50,000 miles of blood vessels. Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels, which in turn can increase blood flow to the heart, arteries and sexual organs. This makes nitric oxide critical to healthy sexual function in both men and women.
However, starting in a person’s thirties, the body’s nitric oxide production begins to decline by 20% every 10 years. By the age of 65, most people have lost 85% of their ability to make nitric oxide on their own.
The loss of nitrous oxide has also been correlated to the onset of many chronic diseases, including heart disease, which is the leading cause of death for men and women in the U.S. The American Heart Association estimates that heart disease costs the U.S. about $363 billion annually in medications, health care services and lost productivity.
Healthy Extracts’ new video series begins by presenting the simple steps everyone can take to elevate nitric oxide in their circulatory system and improve their overall health.
The first episode in the series, ‘Why is Nitric Oxide Production so Important?,’ was posted today on Whitney Johns YouTube channel here.
An independent clinical study published in the Journal of Sports Medicine and Therapy demonstrated that a key ingredient included in the newly released WHITNEY JOHNS ACTIVE™ supplement, bergamot-derived polyphenolic fraction (BPF Gold) creates an antioxidant effect and enhances the release of nitric oxide.
In fact, BPF Gold has been clinically proven to increase nitric oxide by 73% as well as oxygen consumption (VO2 max) by 24%. Another clinical study demonstrated that BPF Gold can significantly enhance the beneficial effects of rosuvastatin, one of the most prescribed drugs for reducing cardiometabolic risk.
“For many of us, it is difficult to improve our heart health by changing our diet or exercise habits,” commented Duke Pitts, president of Healthy Extracts. “However, taking WHITNEY JOHNS ACTIVE once a day makes it easy. Best of all, it has no known negative side effects, while delivering clinically proven blood flow benefits.”
WHITNEY JOHNS ACTIVE is based on Healthy Extracts’ clinically proven all-natural BPF Gold Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit™ formulation, which recently became available on Whitney’s Amazon.com store and directly on Whitneyjohns.com.
