Actually, BillH99, Bonito Peptides are not a drug, they are building blocks for proteins. They are structures built by amino acids which bond and fold to produce a protein, which is natural.
Robert, there have been 3 clinical human studies performed.
Clinical Studies Three human clinical trials have been reported using bonito peptides in subjects with borderline or mild HTN, and have shown significant decreases in BP.
In the most recent study, researchers used an optimized bonito peptide mixture of 1.5 grams daily.
The results of these case studies suggest that bonito peptides are approximately 64% effective in reducing BP in borderline and mildly hypertensive subjects. In these short - term clinical trials, no serious adverse effects were reported , suggesting that bonito peptides have an excellent safety profile. In an unpublished, pre-clinical pilot study, bonito peptides did not lower BPin subjects with BPalready in the normal range.
Furthermore, no rebound effect or abnormally high BP levels were observed after supplement termination in short - term trials with borderline and mildly hypertensive subjects.
I, too, am on Lisinopril and also Coreg to lower my BP. I am going to try the Bonito Peptides myself to see how they work. I monitor my BP closely (several times a day) with one of the most accurate BP monitors (Microlife BP3MC1-PC). I want to get off of my BP meds completely, if I'm able to, since any foreign chemical going thru the liver is not healthy. I was able to lose 90 pounds over the past year by cutting out almost all processed foods, which enabled me to cut my BP drugs to less than half of what they were originally.
If I can remember to come back here and let you know how the peptides have worked for me, I will. Good luck to you.View Thread
