Twice The Heart:

ECOVITIS® + AroniaCraft® for Cardiovascular Health

Heart disease is still the leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for 1 in every 5 deaths in 2020. And with American Heart Month around the corner, there’s no better time to share the love for two clinically studied ingredients that support heart health: ECOVITIS Grape Seed Extract and AroniaCraft European Aronia Berry Extract. Combined, these polyphenol-rich nutraceuticals make a powerhouse cardiovascular product.

The Industry Gold Standard

ECOVITIS® Grape Seed Extract sets the standard for traceability, sustainable manufacturing, and efficacy. In addition to combating oxidative stress, it has been shown to support healthy blood pressure, total cholesterol and triglycerides in human clinical trials.Blood Pressure and Endothelial Function Support A 12-week pilot study investigating the effect of ECOVITIS® supplementation on maintenance of healthy blood pressure in borderline metabolic syndrome subjects (Cesarone et al., 2021) showed improvements in:
  • Blood pressure
  • Lipid values
  • Heart rate
  • Oxidative stress
  • Endothelial function
Cardiovascular Support A 3-month study in asymptomatic women investigating the effect of ECOVITIS® on the progression of atherosclerosis (Belcaro & Cesarone, 2022) showed improvements in:
  • Cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Blood pressure and oxidative stress
  • Modulation of atherosclerotic plaque progression
Comparison to Pharmaceutical ACE Inhibitors A pilot study with healthy, borderline hypertensive subjects comparing ECOVITIS® to two angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors commonly prescribed for lowering blood pressure (Bercaro et al., 2022). Without any side effects, ECOVITIS® showed comparable improvements in the following, compared to Trandolapril and Ramipril:
  • Blood pressure
  • Oxidative stress
  • Endothelial dysfunction

AroniaCraft® European Aronia Berry Extract is made exclusively from premium quality aronia berries traceable to their European origin and standardized to polyphenols and anthocyanins.

Aronia berries have been featured in numerous clinical studies demonstrating their beneficial effect on heart health, immune support and more.

A 2020 meta-analysis evaluated the existing human clinical studies on aronia berries and cardiovascular support. The resulting conclusions were that:

  • High quality aronia berry supplements have a significant reduction effect on risk factors of cardiovascular disease, including systolic blood pressure and total cholesterol.
  • Supplementation with aronia berry for a period of 6-8 weeks was sufficient to produce a significant reduction in these markers.
  • Stronger effects were found among adults over the age of 50.
