Chinese salvia (Salvia miltiorrhiza) is one of the primary herbs used throughout Asia for supporting a healthy cardiovascular system. MSV-60® (magnesium salvianolate B) has been identified as one of its primary active compounds.
Salvia is a renowned Asian traditional herb, used for centuries to support cardiovascular health. In Chinese herbalism, it is one of the most highly regarded circulatory tonics. Today scientific research is helping to confirm and explain salvia’s benefits. Magnesium salvianolate B (MSV-60®), a water-soluble compound recently isolated from salvia, has been shown to be responsible for much of its beneficial activity.
Full Spectrum Salvia with MSV-60® is a premier formulation that yields a full range of salvia’s constituents, while guaranteeing the presence of its most beneficial compounds. This formula is an example of herbalism at its best—uniting traditional herbal wisdom with the findings of modern clinical and pharmacological research.
Salvia root (Salvia miltiorrhiza), commonly known as dan shen, has been an important herb in China, Japan and Korea for centuries. It has been traditionally valued for a wide variety of conditions, but the most common use has been to support a healthy heart and circulation.
Salvia contains a range of compounds, soluble in either fat or water. Magnesium salvianolate B (MSV-60®), recently isolated from salvia by medical researchers at the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, was determined to have powerful antioxidant actions in vitro. Salvianolic acid, a metabolite of MSV- 60®, was shown to be the strongest of salvia’s constituents in protecting heart mitochondria from free radical damage.
MSV-60® and salvia extracts in general have also been shown to support normal platelet functioning and healthy blood flow and circulation, according to a number of in vitro studies.
Full Spectrum Salvia with MSV-60® combines salvia root with 60% magnesium salvianolate B, plus seven additional active compounds. The resulting formulation yields a full range of salvia’s constituents, while guaranteeing the presence of its most beneficial water-soluble compounds.
