Letter from the President

I hope that your new year is going well so far, and that you are already seeing progress on your goals. For those of us in the health and nutrition industry, this is the time to support consumers’ resolutions to eat healthier and improve their fitness. Science shows that the standardized polyphenols found in MegaNatural® Grape Seed Extracts support a heart-healthy diet, and are specifically beneficial for sports nutrition.

Both MegaNatural-Gold and MegaNatural-BP are rich in antioxidants and may reduce the free radicals produced by the oxidative stress our bodies experience during exercise. In addition, many athletes are seeking sports nutrition supplements that promote nitric oxide benefits. MegaNatural-BP has been clinically shown to help support endothelial function by maintaining healthy nitric oxide levels, which helps support healthy vasodilation and blood flow.

One of Polyphenolics’ goals for 2017 is to support our customers’ development of effective sports nutrition products. From functional beverages, capsules, shots and shakes to gummies, gels, bars and powder mixes, this is shaping up to be an exciting year for product innovation.

Read more about MegaNatural Grape Seed Extracts’ role in sports nutrition, and what differentiates our extracts from others, in our sports nutrition white paper.

James A. Kennedy, Ph.D.
President, Polyphenolics



MegaNatural-BP and MegaNatural-Gold have new logos!

The MegaNatural-BP logo has long appeared on the packaging of all products containing MegaNatural-BP. We now have a fresh, new logo to help attract consumers to your new or existing product. We have also developed a logo for our customers that use MegaNatural-Gold in their formulations. There will be instructions communicated about how to phase out the old logo and introduce the new logo through an e-communication in February. Until then, please read through the attached Logo Standard Guide for more information.


February is Heart Health Awareness month. Why should MegaNatural-BP be at the center of prehypertension discussions?

With the long-term consequences of prehypertension now confirmed, there’s no doubt this subject will be top of mind in February. Polyphenolics is a leader in promising natural solutions, with three clinical studies demonstrating that its multi-patented MegaNatural-BP supports healthy blood pressure within the normal range with no adverse side effects.

It takes quite a bit of time to see the benefits of most non-pharmaceutical measures known to improve prehypertension and hypertension, such as reducing sodium intake, losing weight and increasing exercise. The public needs to know that with MegaNatural-BP, we now have a breakthrough, clinically shown way to support healthy blood pressure that is effective within a matter of weeks.  

Polyphenolics is doing everything we can to raise awareness by conducting meaningful research to help manufacturers develop products to address this global concern. Take a look at this infographic about how some polyphenols may help to maintain blood pressure.
