Decrease Blood Pressure

Author: Lewis L Lanier

SBP is a supplement designed to decrease blood pressure in people with hypertension. The manufacturer claims that it contains purely natural ingredients but we are going to find out whether this claim is true in this review. SBP is made from such main ingredients as magnesium malate, cinnamon, and vitamin B6 which work too mildly and cannot bring the desired effect very quickly. Even though these components are natural, it is not a guarantee that SBP will not cause side effects. The latter do occur despite the fact that, according to the producer, the product is made in an FDA-registered laboratory under "strict guidelines of the FDA's regulation of current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP)." It sounds funny to me because there is no evidence of this claim. The website does not provide all the necessary information about SBP to the customer which make the supplement doubtful.

According to the manufacturer, there are three main ingredients in SBP, including Magnesium, Vitamin B6 and Ceylon Cinnamon.

Magnesium is the major component that is added in the dose of 32mg to each serving of SBP. It is no more than 8% of your daily Magnesium dose. For this reason, you are expected to take additional magnesium supplement or multivitamin to get your daily recommended dosage. The product contains it in the form of Dimagnesium Malate, which is the most bioavailable form of magnesium, as the producer claims. Magnesium is said to dilate your blood vessels, but there is no scientific evidence proving this fact. So, it is not guaranteed to lower your blood pressure.

Vitamin B6 is contained in the dose of 5mg in every serving of SBP, according to the manufacturer. It is 250% of your daily dosage of this vitamin! You have a high risk of getting an allergic reaction and side effects. There is no doubt that Vitamin B6 is beneficial for the human health but not in such a high dosage! But, unfortunately, this compound is unable to treat any health conditions. It can only improve health and boost the immunity. This vitamin is important for functioning of body cells.

Ceylon Cinnamon is another ingredient contained in SBP which, according to the manufacturer, can lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in a natural way. You can find 1000mg of Ceylon cinnamon in one serving of the supplement. However, in reality, this compound does not prove to be so effective. You may need to take it for many months before feeling any positive changes in your health.

Other ingredients of SBP include magnesium stearate (vegetable), gelatin, and silicon dioxide. These are just additional components added to preserve main ingredients in the supplement.

The manufacturer of SBP does not state any side effects of the product on the official website. It may carry dangers for your health, even though, according to the producer, the supplement is associated with a number of scientific studies. One study conducted in 2006 demonstarted that water-soluble cinnamon can mildly reduce blood pressure, but you will need to take too high doses on this compound in order to achieve any positive results. You till also need a lot of time to improve your body composition and metabolism, as well as to reduce risk factors connected with cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.

Another study of cinnamon involved participation of 58 people with type 2 diabetes. Some of them received 2 grams of this compound per day. The cinnamon group was shown to decrease blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Some cinnamon studies conducted by have shown that cinnamon is a vasodilator, even though this claim has no scientific evidence. It seems that the manufacturer has conducted those studies on their own and presented the results without any evidence. Personally, I cannot trust those claims.

According to the official SBP website, fruits and vegetables containing magnesium, can be beneficial for reducing blood pressure in people who consume them on a regular basis could. Then why should you buy their artificial product? Isn't it better to receive Vitamin B6, Magnesium and cinnamon from foods? I found a lot of true users' reviews about the use of SBP. Some of them report experiencing side effects similar to those caused by traditional blood pressure medications like insomnia, cramping, erectile dysfunction, and cold hands or feet. Let us have a look at some of the customers' reviews.

"SBP is too expensive for a product of this kind. You can get its basic ingredients separately much cheaper. For example, magnesium malate can be bought anywhere online. The same for B-6 and ceylon cinnamon. Why should I pay more?"

"We got scammed with we got scammed with SBP, ordered it like other dummies. This supplement does not work at all! They use your CC information and keep charging. It is very difficult to cancel your program. I am going to file a complaint with our Attorney General"

"I have been taking sbp for two weeks and it really works but I couldn't continue taking it because of severe side effects. I felt very dizzy, I was even vomiting three times. I have been off for several days. Who will compensate me my absence at work?"

SBP can be currently bought only from the official website, you can see a lot of advertisements for a "risk-free" trial but do not be naive. Many users complain of inability to cancel their enrollment. It is not free, in fact. You will be $50 plus $7 shipping and handling for one bottle. It isn't available on Amazon, Walmart and GNC.

I do not think that SBP can take proper care of your health. Even though its major ingredients are beneficial for health in general, but they cannot solve your problem of high pressure. This supplement's effects is too mild, almost unnoticeable. So, if you really need medical help, consult your doctor. SBP may cause a number of side effects. The product is not intended for people under age. None of its ingredients has been approved by the FDA. Taking into account all of those disadvantages, I cannot recommend SBP to usage by people suffering from hypertension.
