Citrus fruits are one of the most common Far Eastern medicines, whereas olive leaf has been used in the Mediterranean against hypertension and inflammation. CitroVen™ combines the active components of olive (Olea europaea), grapefruit (Citrus paradisi) and bitter orange (Citrus aurantium) to work synergistically in one product that promotes health.
CitroVen™ is a blend developed after extensive research into the major phytochemicals, polyphenols and flavonoids of olive and specific citrus species.
CitroVen™ combines active components from three botanicals for their positive effects on blood pressure and vascular function. It delivers the protective phytonutrients of the Mediterranean diet in a tailor-made optimized blend for support of cardiovascular health.
A recent clinical study demonstrated the combination of citrus flavones and flavanones and olive polyphenols in CitroVen™ had a positive effect on the reduction of cardiovascular risk in healthy subjects. The results showed statistically significant improvements in decreased serum levels of total cholesterol, LDL-C, and oxidized LDL levels (-42%) and an increase in endothelium-dependent vasodilatation (+45%) as compared to baseline levels in healthy subjects, after taking CitroVen™ daily for 8 weeks1.
CitroVen™ has activity as an anti-oxidant and had positive effects on maintenance of healthy blood pressure, blood cholesterol and markers of inflammation.
