They explained that after 12 weeks of starting the research, a significant decrease in the values ??of systolic and diastolic blood pressure was observed, what is known as maximum and minimum.

According to a national television report, this is the first study that evaluates the effects of policosanol on blood pressure as a primary efficacy variable and demonstrates that it can be used as an adjuvant in the management of low-risk patients for the control of elevated blood pressure values.

The research is the result of collaboration between the Ministry of Public Health and the BioCubafarma Business Group.
