Effect of grape seed extract on blood pressure

The phenolic compounds found in grapes have shown to have a variety of positive effects on metabolic syndrome. Among them are the causing of endothelium-dependent relaxation of blood vessels and the activation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (Sivaprakasapillai et al., 1). Endothelium-dependent relaxation is simply the relaxing of the flat cells that line internal body cavities, such as those in the heart. Once these cavities are relaxed, they allow for the opening of blood vessels. Endothelial nitric oxide synthase is important because it is the production and distribution of nitric oxide, which is an essential substance that acts to communicate within and between cells to regulate numerous processes in the body (MedLine Medical Dictionary).

To Our Community

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
