VINIA(R)’s ability to increase dilation of arteries and to reduce blood vessel constriction allows it to fight the human aging process

BioHarvest Sciences Inc. (CSE: BHSC) (“BioHarvest” or the “Company”) announces that its flagship VINIA® product is the only dietary supplement available in the US market which has the capability for both reducing the endothelin 1 (ET1) enzyme as well as increasing the nitric oxide (NO) molecules, in order to increase the dilation of arteries and thereby improve blood flow. The presence of ET1 constricts the blood vessel, whereas the presence of NO dilates it. As a result of its “double-action” effect (proven by the Flow Mediated Dilatation (FMD) measurements in a double-blinded Placebo-controlled clinical trial*and in an in-vitro study** whose results were both published), VINIA® is uniquely positioned to combat the aging process caused by a reduction in blood flow.
