Hypertensa by Physician Therapeutics
Member Price: $
Hypertensa by Physician Therapeutics
is a specially formulated Medical Food designed for the dietary management of the altered metabolic processes associated with hypertension.
How Can Hypertensa Help?
Hypertensa provides a balance of amino acids and nutrients with well defined roles in the management of blood pressure. Hypertensa addresses the increased nutritional requirements of hypertension by stimulating the production of certain neurotransmitters that are responsible for regulating blood pressure and vascular function.
Is Hypertensa Right For Me?
Hypertensa is a not a beta blocker or blood thinner. No severe side effects, fatigue, or tolerance build up has been reported. Hypertensa works through a different pathway than drugs and contains ingredients that are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS).
Hypertensa is a proprietary formulation of amino acids and other dietary factors to support induction, maintenance, and enhancement of the specific neurotransmitter
activity involved in the physiology of HT. The formulation consists of nonessential and essential amino acids, L-Arginine HCL, Choline Bitartrate, Whey Protein Isolate (Milk),
Cocoa Extract, Cinnamon, Ginseng, L-Leucine, L-Glutamine, L-Histidine HCL, Caffeine, L-Cysteine, and Grape Seed Extract. These ingredients fall into the classification of
Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) as defined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (Sections 201(s) and 409 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act). A
GRAS substance is distinguished from a food additive on the basis of the common knowledge about the safety of the substance for its intended use. The standard for an
ingredient to achieve GRAS status requires not only technical demonstration of non-toxicity and safety, but also general recognition of safety through widespread usage and
agreement of that safety by experts in the field. Many ingredients have been determined by the FDA to be GRAS, and are listed as such by regulation, in Volume 21 Code of
Federal Regulations (CFR) Sections 182, 184, and 186.
Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein and are GRAS listed as they have been safely ingested by humans for thousands of years. The formulations of the amino
acids in Hypertensa are equivalent to those found in the usual human diet. Patients with hypertension may require an increased amount of certain amino acids that cannot
be obtained from normal diet alone. Arginine, for example, is a conditional amino acid. The body can make arginine in the liver, but liver produced arginine can only be used
by cells restricted to the liver. Arginine is needed to produce nitric oxide (NO). NO is required to dilate the constricted blood vessels that are the cause of high blood
pressure. Patients with hypertension have an increase in the enzyme, arginase that degrades arginine before it can be used to produce NO. Some patients with hypertension
have a resistance to the use of arginine that is similar to the mechanism found in insulin resistance that is genetically determined. Patients with hypertension cannot obtain
sufficient arginine from the diet without ingesting a prohibitively large amount of calories, particularly calories from protein.
Hypertensa contains the following “inactive” or other ingredients, as fillers, excipients, and colorings: Gelatin, vegetable magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, lac-resin,
It is recommended that two (2) capsules of Hypertensa be taken two (2) times daily. Your doctor will determine the most appropriate dose for your condition.
Patient must be under the ongoing supervision of a physician when taking Hypertensa.
