Just In Time for National Heart Month

February 20, 2009

LEWISVILLE, N.C., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ — A new product made from a
proprietary formula containing Muscadine grape skins and seed powder is
expected to provide a potent nutritional weapon in the fight against the
nation’s number one killer, heart disease.

The use of Muscadine grapes and phytonutrients in Muscadine grapes for
cardiovascular problems was first reported at international conferences held
in Varanesi, India and Singapore in 2006 and 2007 (see
www.muscadinenaturals.com for the complete published review). The product
Muscadine Plus “Heart Healthy Formula” is being introduced this month to
commemorate National Heart Month said Dr. William D. Wagner, senior research
scientist for Muscadine Naturals and Fellow of the American Heart Association.
Muscadine Plus “Heart Healthy Formula” was designed specifically to provide an
all natural way using dietary supplementation to address problems of high
cholesterol and other risk factors of heart disease.

The thick skin of the Native American Muscadine grape contains more than
200 phytonutrient compounds (polyphenols), many of which are natural
antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. The Muscadine grape has been termed
the “Super Grape” since it has at least 5 kinds of resveratrol, quercetin,
ellagic acid and several types of catechins, all of which have been studied
for their healthy effects.

The proprietary formula contains high concentrations of polyphenols,
Coenzyme Q-10 and Vitamin E. These elements when combined are designed to
provide protection against oxidation of plasma lipids, abnormal clotting,
elevated blood pressure and heart failure, Dr. Wagner said.

The product is available in food, drug and specialty food stores. Call
888-628-5898 for locations.
