Maintaining healthy blood pressure is vital for long-term heart health, and scientists have now discovered evidence that a component of egg whites may have beneficial cardiovascular effects. Researchers from Clemson University, in South Carolina, found that a peptide in egg white, one of the building blocks of proteins, reduces blood pressure in animals about as much as a low dose of Captopril, a prescription medication for high blood pressure.

Arnica montana is an herb that may assist the healing process by breaking up micro clots in damaged tissues through enzymatic action. Arnica also contains prostaglandin-blockers that relieve pain.
