Ingredients (serving size 2 capsules.)


Ceylon Cinnamon - 1000 mg per serving


The core ingredient of Striction BP is superior quality Natural Ceylon Cinnamon Extract. Not just any Cinnamon will do! Ceylon Cinnamon is "true Cinnamon" and it is safe in quanitity and is the only type of Cinnamon proven to help reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, naturally with no side effects. Cinnamon has a long history of treating various health disorders, including hypertension. The bark of the plant provides the medicinal ingredients, including the essential oil that contains the strong fragrance and flavor. Numerous research studies have shown that this herb is beneficial in reducing blood pressure.


Magnesium - 32 mg per serving


Each Striction BP capsule contains the optimal amount of Magnesium in the form of Magnesium Malate. Magnesium Malate is the most bio-available form of Magnesium and as such - it delivers the most benefit. Additionally, Magnesium is used in the production of prostaglandin E1, which is a powerful vasodilator. Typically, blood pressure rises as blood vessels harden and narrow, which causes the heart to exert increased force to circulate blood to body tissues - which results in higher blood pressure. As a potent vasodilator, Magnesium causes your blood vessels to relax and widen, allowing for easier blood flow and resulting in lower blood pressure.


Vitamin B6 - 5 mg per serving


Entire books have been written on the therapeutic uses of vitamin B6. It has been used to treat more than 100 health conditions that cover a wide range of physical and psychological disorders, from heart disease to mental depression to kidney stones to memory loss. Without enough B6, a compound called homocysteine builds up in the body. Homocysteine damages blood vessel linings, setting the stage for plaque buildup when the body tries to heal the damage. Vitamin B6 prevents this buildup, thereby reducing the risk of heart attack. Vitamin B6 lowers blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels and keeps blood platelets from sticking together. All of these properties work to keep heart disease at bay.

It has also been proven to increase the cellular absorption rate of magnesium which is another key benefit.

  1. Effects of a Water-Soluble Cinnamon Extract on Body Composition and Features of the Metabolic Syndrome in Pre-Diabetic Men and Women… HR and BP After 12-weeks, subjects in the Cinnulin group decreased their SBP by 3.8% (from 133 ± 14 mm Hg [pre] to 128 ± 18 mm Hg [post], P < 0.001) compared to subjects in the Placebo group (from 133 ± 22 mm Hg [pre] to 142 ± 20 mm Hg [post]). No between or within-group changes in diastolic blood pressure (Cinnulin: from 83 ± 6 mm Hg [pre] to 84 ± 9 mm Hg [post]; Placebo: from 83 ± 14 mm Hg [pre] to 86 ± 12 mm Hg [post], P < 0.32) or HR (Cinnulin: from 69 ± 14 beats/min [pre] to 69 ± 12 beats/min [post]; Placebo: from 71 ± 15 beats/min [pre] to 74 ± 8 beats/min [post], P < 0.73) were noted in either group.

    It also appears that this particular water-soluble cinnamon extract, standardized for polyphenolic type-A polymers, can favorably alter systolic blood pressure and body composition when consumed for at least 12-weeks.

  2. What Is Cinnamon Used for Today? What is the Scientific Evidence for Cinnamon?
    A randomized trial involving 58 people with type 2 diabetes also concluded that 2 g of cinnamon daily reduced HbA1c levels (a measurement of blood sugar levels over time), as well as high blood pressure.

  3. Magnesium
    Eating low fat dairy products, along with lots of fruits and vegetables on a regular basis, is associated with lower blood pressure.

    All of these foods are rich in magnesium, as well as calcium and potassium. A large clinical study of more than 8,500 women found that a higher intake of dietary magnesium may decrease the risk of high blood pressure in women. A few studies also suggest that magnesium supplements may help lower blood pressure...

  4. Magnesium Fact Sheet
    Hypertension and cardiovascular disease
    Hypertension is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Studies to date, however, have found that magnesium supplementation lowers blood pressure, at best, to only a small extent. A meta-analysis of 12 clinical trials found that magnesium supplementation for 8–26 weeks in 545 hypertensive participants resulted in only a small reduction (2.2 mmHg) in diastolic blood pressure [30]. The dose of magnesium ranged from approximately 243 to 973 mg/day. The authors of another meta-analysis of 22 studies with 1,173 normotensive and hypertensive adults concluded that magnesium supplementation for 3–24 weeks decreased systolic blood pressure by 3–4 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure by 2–3 mmHg [31]. The effects were somewhat larger when supplemental magnesium intakes of the participants in the nine crossover-design trials exceeded 370 mg/day. A diet containing more magnesium because of added fruits and vegetables, more low-fat or non-fat dairy products, and less fat overall was shown to lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure by an average of 5.5 and 3.0 mmHg, respectively
