The Need
Reducing LDL oxidation and maintaining healthy blood pressure levels are two key
factors that contribute to proper heart health.
Competitive Solutions
Many competitive grape skin and grape seed supplements assume all grapes are the
same and select an extract based on its price—not its flavonoid content.
The Melaleuca Solution
ProvexCV’s super-concentrated blend of premium grape skin and grape seed has been
carefully selected after testing many extracts from around the world. A proprietary
enzyme blend helps maximize the absorption and performance of the antioxidants.

combination of grape seed, grape skin,
ginkgo biloba, bilberry, and quercetin. Plus,
it includes an exclusive enzyme blend
that helps your body absorb all the heartprotecting flavonoids.

Occasionally, however, LDL cholesterol slips underneath an artery to invade the
space behind it. This space is called the subendothelial space. When LDL cholesterol
gets into the subendothelial space, it can become oxidized.
Much like excess moisture oxidizes exposed metal causing it to rust or air causes
an apple slice to turn brown, free radicals oxidize LDL cholesterol. If LDL cholesterol
becomes oxidized, the immune system is called into action. Essentially, the body
generates unwelcome free radicals. Fortunately, free radicals can be neutralized
by antioxidants.
Antioxidants are beneficial compounds naturally occurring in the body, and they’re
also obtained in the diet from foods like fruits, vegetables, and tea. (Supplements like
the Vitality Pack and CellWise are also rich in antioxidants.) If the body has a sufficient
supply of antioxidants, it is more likely to be protected from free radicals.

The French Paradox
A phenomenon called the French
Paradox first received national attention
in 1992. It was observed and publicized
that the French, on average, eat more
high-fat foods (almost three times as
much lard as Americans) and highcholesterol foods (almost four times
as much butter as Americans), and
smoke many more cigarettes per
person—yet the French generally
have healthier hearts!
This apparent paradox has been
attributed to the fact that most French
people—compared to Americans—
drink more red wine with their meals.
The red wine contains flavonoids—
which have cardio-protective properties.
ProvexCV’s Extraction
ProvexCV’s enzyme blend is not its only
unique feature. The extraction process
used to make ProvexCV is also unique.
Some grape skin extracts on the market
use sulfur dioxide in their extraction
process. Sulfur dioxide can cause allergic
reactions in some people. Partly for this
reason, ProvexCV does not use sulfur
dioxide in its extraction process.
The extraction process for ProvexCV
ensures you receive only premium
grape antioxidants—without getting
leftover winemaking grapes or sulfur
dioxide, so the extracts are potent and
The Exclusive ProvexCV
Enzyme Blend
It has been established through scientific
studies that although flavonoids are
present in plant extracts, they are not
all bioavailable. That’s where ProvexCV’s
exclusive enzyme blend comes in.
ProvexCV’s enzyme blend helps maximize
the absorption and performance of the
antioxidants by as much as six times.*
Creating a Defense*
If LDL cholesterol is oxidized, the immune system summons white blood cells called
monocytes to the area. Attracted to the artery’s inner layer, monocytes begin to
pass through the endothelial lining to the subendothelial space. As monocytes pass
through the lining, they become macrophages that begin to scavenge the oxidized LDL
cholesterol—treating it as they would a foreign invader like bacteria.
The Importance of Proper Blood Pressure
When it comes to cardiovascular health, healthy blood flow doesn’t always get the most
attention, but it is a crucial component of total heart health. According to the National
Institutes of Health, healthy blood pressure should be a priority for one in three
Americans (over 65 million). Maintaining healthy blood pressure will allow you to live
a healthier life with your family and loved ones. There are some simple ways to help
maintain healthy blood pressure levels, including eating healthy and exercising. But
for many, that may not be enough. That is why ProvexCV includes ingredients that help
protect your heart—naturally.*
The Patented ProvexCV Formula
The all-natural ingredients that make up ProvexCV were carefully chosen and meticulously
combined to deliver enhanced cardiovascular protection. Melaleuca tested dozens of
strains of grapes and ended up going halfway around the world to use the absolute best,
most heart-protecting grape seed and grape skin.*
Super-Concentrated Grape Seed and Grape Skin Extract
The grape seeds used in ProvexCV are a leading source of one of the most beneficial
groups of plant flavonoids: proanthocyanidins. These flavonoids have been found to have
a powerful antioxidant effect—neutralizing free radicals before they can cause damage.
Studies have shown that the antioxidant power of proanthocyanidins can be up to 20 times
greater than vitamin E and up to 50 times greater than vitamin C. *
The super-concentrated grape seeds in ProvexCV use a proprietary process that
increases bioavailability and antioxidant value, and can help maintain healthy blood
pressure levels. The extract has been further fortified with a large amount of anthocyanins,
which have been shown to help maintain healthy platelet levels.
Research has also shown that proanthocyandidins in grape seed help enhance heart
health by strengthening capillaries, arteries, and veins.3*
Finally, ProvexCV’s grape seed extract also contains gallic esters which are powerful
free-radical scavengers.*
The flavonoids found in ProvexCV’s grape skin extract contain many of the common
components of grape juice, such as anthocyanins (another class of flavonoids), tartaric
acid, tannins, and minerals. These components are believed to help promote healthy blood
platelet activity. In addition, the anthocyanins possess free-radical-scavenging action that
protects against LDL cholesterol oxidation. *
A polyphenolic compound found in grapes and some berries that has been shown in
lab tests to neutralize free radicals and inhibit LDL oxidation; it is also associated with
maintaining healthy platelet function and supporting endothelial function.
The last flavonoid in ProvexCV is quercetin—found in red wine and grape juice, in fruits
and vegetables, and in the hops, malt, and barley used to make beer and wine. Researchers
have found that quercetin, by itself, promotes healthy platelet activity. By adding

Historically, bilberry has been used for the treatment of scurvy, dysentery, eyestrain, visual
acuity, and day and night blindness.
ProvexCV includes bilberry because it contains flavonoids known as anthocyanosides,
which have been shown to prevent free radical damage. These flavonoids also help
maintain the integrity of capillaries, which in turn helps give artery walls their structural
integrity. Studies show that bilberry also promotes healthy platelet activity.*
Do What’s Right for Your Heart
