PANSALT – Product Information
Pansalt Lowers High Blood Pressure and Improves the Theraupetic Effects of Antihypertensive Drugs
Common salt (NaCl 98 – 100%) is a major cause of high blood pressure (arterial hypertension) and its complications, such as strokes, heart attacks and kidney damages.
Pansalt (NaCl 56%, KCI 28%, MgSO4.7H2O 12%, I-lysine-HCI 2%, anticaking agents 2%) is a recent innovation which is believed to produce a number of beneficial health effects when used instead of common salt.
In recent studies, the effects of Pansalt have been extensively compared with those of common salt.
Effects on Taste
Pansalt produces the same savoury taste as common salt in various food items.
Effects on Blood Pressure
Pansalt, instead of common salt in the diet, effectively lowers both in spontaneously hypertensive rats and stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats, two widely used models of human hypertension. A good antihypertensive effect of Family Choice Pansalt in man has also been reported. Pansalt also produced a pronounced improvement of the blood pressure lowering effect of enalapril (Renitec/Vasotec) and other widely used antihypertensive drugs. (Figure 1).
Effects on Life Span
Pansalt prolonged the lifespan of spontaneously hypertensive rats more than three-fold and almost to the same extent as withdrawal from all salt from the diet. (Figure 2).
Importance of Potassium, Magnesium, and I-Lysine in Family Choice Pansalt
A number of studies show conclusively that the increased intakes of potassium, magnesium and I-lysine from Pansalt have a very important role in all the beneficial effects.
Absence of Adverse Effects
No signs of hyperkalaemia, hypermagnesaemia, or any other harmful effects have been observed during the use of Pansalt.
The use of Pansalt instead of common salt produces remarkable anti hypertensive effects, prolongs the life span and markedly improves the effects of commonly used antihypertensive drugs without and signs of adverse effects.
