Don't ignore the potential health risks of prolonged immobility or long-distance travel. Maintaining healthy blood flow in your arms, legs, and extremities is particularly important for older adults with limited mobility, as well as those forced to endure extended periods of immobility such as illness, recovery from injury, long-distance travelers, or office workers who sit for long periods.
Blood flow is primarily powered by your heart — but the movement of blood throughout your body is also naturally aided by muscle movement. However, this additional pumping action is only effective when we are physically active. New evidence suggests that the vascular health risks of a sedentary lifestyle or forced immobility are serious enough that they should not be disregarded.
Our unique VenoFlow formula combines Pycnogenol® French maritime pine bark extract with the potent nattokinase enzyme to support healthy blood flow, vascular function, and normal clotting processes.
Nattokinase is an enzyme extracted from fermented soybeans. In animal models, it was found to break down fibrinogen in the blood, supporting the body’s natural blood clotting process.
Pycnogenol® is an extract of French maritime pine bark with well-documented effects on vascular health and endothelial function. Pycnogenol® contains powerful antioxidant compounds that can help reduce chemical stress on the delicate vascular walls which can affect healthy vascular function and blood flow. Pycnogenol® also boosts the production of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), which encourages healthy levels of nitric oxide levels in the blood and thereby relaxatino of the blood vessels. Pycnogenol® can also inhibit platelet aggregation an important factor for maintaining healthy circulation.
