New from Life Extension is Olive Leaf Vascular Support with Benolea (from Frutarom). This ingredient is said to help naturally modulate blood pressure levels already within normal range and is standardized to 16% oleuropein. Researchers using 1,000 mg per day of this formulation in a trial documented an average 11.5-point (mmHg) decline in systolic readings and 4.8-point drop in diastolic readings in eight weeks.
