Can you consume shrimp or shrimp shells and see the same effect on blood pressure health as seen when taking PreCardix®?

Unfortunately not. The bioactive marine peptides in PreCardix® are extracted through an extensive and patented production process where the natural proteins in the shrimp shells are broken down into smaller amino acid chains (peptides) through a controlled enzymatic hydrolysis process.

The enzymes added in the production process, splice the proteins into smaller fractions and thus create the extraordinary blood pressure health attributes. By consuming shrimps (or shrimp shells) in their natural form, you would be consuming the full length proteins. The body is not able to process the larger proteins into the smaller peptides found in the final PreCardix® tablet. 

Therefore, these proteins won't have the same effect on blood pressure health.

Always consult with your health care provider before making changes to your blood pressure management plan. PreCardix® does not treat, cure or prevent medical conditions. Measure and monitor blood pressure regularly. Know the signs of heart attack and stroke. Do not take PreCardix® if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have renal artery stenosis, history of angioneurotic edema or shellfish allergy.
