Q: What is PreCardix made from?

PreCardix bioactive marine peptides are derived from Norwegian cold-water prawns and locally sourced non-medicinal ingredients.  

Q:  Will PreCardix cause an allergic reaction in people who have a confirmed seafood or shellfish allergy?

The active ingredient in PreCardix is derived from hydrolyzed marine protein. The shellfish proteins have been broken down into much smaller components called peptides. Peptides are no longer proteins, and therefore will not stimulate an allergic reaction in people with a shellfish allergy. However,  people with a confirmed allergy may develop allergic symptoms if they believe the ingredient may cause that allergy. For this reason, we label our products to advise all customers that PreCardix contains marine peptides derived from shrimp.

 

Q: What are the other ingredients in PreCardix for?

A: PreCardix is approved by Health Canada as a Natural Health Product. Natural health products (NHPs) are naturally occurring substances that are used to restore or maintain good health. PreCardix is made with bioactive marine peptides, a natural ingredient with a clinically proven antihypertensive effect. In PreCardix the bioactive marine peptides comprise approximately 80% of the final tablet. The remaining ingredients help the tablet maintain its form and make it easier to swallow. This benefit is often critical to people as they age and develop swallowing difficulties.

 

Q: How long does it take for PreCardix to work?

A: PreCardix is a natural ACE inhibitor. ACE inhibitors help lower blood pressure by preventing ACE (the angiotensin-converting enzyme) from converting angiotensin 1 to angiotensin 2. This preventative action reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular conditions such as high blood pressure. Clinical trials have shown that 89% of participants experienced a significant blood pressure-lowering effect within eight weeks. Therefore, we advise people to try PreCardix for at least two months (2 tablets simultaneously daily) before determining the effectiveness of PreCardix on their blood pressure. Like other blood pressure-lowering products, PreCardix needs to be taken daily to maintain the blood pressure-lowering effect.

Q: What happens if I stop taking PreCardix?

A: The natural, bioactive peptides in PreCardix inhibit an enzyme called Angiotensin-I-Converting Enzyme (ACE), which is naturally found in your body. In turn, this prevents the blood pressure in your body to rise. Like other blood pressure-lowering products, PreCardix must be taken daily to maintain the blood pressure-lowering effect.

Q: Can I take PreCardix in combination with blood pressure-lowering medication?

A: Always consult with a healthcare professional before making any changes to your hypertension treatment plan. You may find it helpful to share our customer testimonials and our peer-reviewed clinical study with your doctor.

Q: Why does PreCardix contain talc?

A: Each PreCardix tablet contains less than 20mg of USP-NF talc in which is used in the tablet’s coating. USP Grade means that a product meets all the requirements as listed in the USP monograph for that product, and is manufactured in a cGMP compliant facility. NF Grade means that a product meets all the requirements as contained in the NF monograph for that product and is produced in a cGMP compliant facility. The United States Pharmacopeial Convention, Incorporated, (USP) is a scientific nonprofit organization that sets standards for the identity, strength, quality, and purity of medicines, food ingredients, and dietary supplements manufactured, distributed and consumed worldwide.

 

PreCardix has been tested in multiple safety and efficacy studies internationally and has been approved for sale by Health Canada, the FDA and the European Food Safety Authority. You can learn more about our peer-reviewed clinical documentation here.

 

Q: Why should I take PreCardix if I can lower my blood pressure through diet and exercise?

A: A healthy lifestyle, including exercise, is the first step in the prevention of high blood pressure and the maintenance of healthy blood pressure. As we age, exercise and other lifestyle interventions such as diet and weight loss may not be enough to manage your blood pressure. PreCardix is clinically proven to significantly lower blood pressure, in 89% of clinical trial participants, in eight weeks or less.
