Vasotensin - Healthy Habits Living



Vasotensin® provides peptides from bonito fish to support healthy blood pressure levels already in the normal range. Bonito peptides have been shown to reduce the formation of angiotensin II—a potent vasoconstrictor—through their interaction with angiotensin-converting enzyme. This formula is designed to be fast acting and to provide a clinically effective dose in just 2 tablets twice daily.*

  • Bonito peptides have been shown to reduce the formation of angiotensin II—a potent vasoconstrictor—through their interaction of bonito peptides with angiotensin converting enzyme.*
  • Formula is designed to be fast acting.
  • May be used as a complement to other heart programs, such as prescription drugs,medical foods , dietary supplements.*
  • Clinically effective dose is just 2 tablets twice daily.
  • Assayed to assure product viability and the presence of LKPNM—a peptide found to produce eight-fold higher activity when hydrolyzed by angiotensin converting enzyme as occurs in the body.
  • No rebound (reverse) effect observed in clinical trials when supplementation is discontinued.
  • Excellent safety profile—no serious adverse effects associated with bonito peptides have been reported.
Directions: Take two tablets two times daily with meals or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

How does Vasotensin® compare to other products or approaches?

Bonito peptides have not demonstrated a negative influence on healthy blood pressure levels, and have an excellent predicted safety profile that suggests appropriate long-term use with clinical supervision. And no rebound (reverse) effect was observed in clinical studies after bonito peptide supplementation was discontinued. The active bonito peptides in Vasotensin are derived from a patented process and tested to verify the presence of LKPNM, identified as the most active peptide.*

How does Vasotensin® work?

Each tablet provides a clinically effective dose of active peptides (proteins) from a fish known as bonito in Japan. These peptides help prevent the formation of angiotensin II (which constricts blood vessels) through their interaction with angiotensin converting enzyme. This activity supports healthy blood vessel function and blood flow ( circulation).*

How long is Vasotensin® typically recommended?

In 2 randomized, placebo-controlled clinical studies, bonito peptides (the same as in Vasotensin) demonstrated significantly greater support for healthy blood pressure levels than placebo. Noticeable support in both studies was seen after just 2 weeks. Individual results may vary. For best results, follow your health care professional's recommendations.*

Who would benefit from Vasotensin®?

Health care professionals recommend this product to promote cardiovascular health, including support for vascular ( blood vessel ) health and maintenance of blood pressure levels already within the normal range.*

Why is Vasotensin® safe?

No serious adverse effects have been observed for bonito peptides in clinical studies up to 16 weeks. Bonito peptides have been the subject of multiple animal and human studies, and were granted FOSHU (Food of Specified Health Use) status in Japan in 1997. Plus, Metagenics' manufacturing facility has 3 certifications for good manufacturing practices to ensure the highest quality.

Caution: If pregnant or nursing, or taking medication, consult your healthcare practitioner before use. Keep out of the reach of children.
