Is BPS-5 really going to be the blood pressure lowering supplement that helps you increase blood-flow and feel younger again with plenty of energy to do the things you love?
Or is BPS-5 a scam that you would be better off avoiding altogether? With the other blood pressure lowering scams out there, like Blood Pressure Protocol for example, it's a question that needs to be asked.
The purpose of this review of BPS-5 is to help answer these questions. Here I will be going over what exactly this supplement is and what it does, whether or not you can trust the company behind it, ingredients, concerns and more.
What Is BPS-5?
- Name: BPS-5
- Type: Hypertension supplement
- Manufacturer: FAI Health ('Functional Aging Institute' Health)
- Price: $47/bottle or $69 with Healthy Blood Pressure Protocol ebook included
- Recommended?: Not really (more on why)
- Where to Buy: Website Here
BPS-5 is a natural supplement by FAI Health that is formulated to lower blood pressure. It is promoted in a number of different ways and many of the promotional pitches are over-hyped and sound scammy.
Overall this supplement seems like it could be good but I will not be promoting it, mainly because of lack of transparency, as I will be going over.
The Sales Pitch
The sales pitch is quite ridiculous and likely the reason you are reading my review right now... because it sounds pretty scammy.
There are several sales pitches floating around on the internet. You may have come across this video that starts off talking about "this silent killer could fill over 750,000 coffins by end of the year" (which we learn is hypertension)...
.. or you may have seen another one I came across about how a "small nameless building has the potential to turn the pharmaceutical industry, and billion dollar drug companies upside down".
Typical Fear Mongering
Here you have the typical fear mongering approach where they try to strike fear into the minds of viewers. They talk about how hypertension causes heart attacks, strokes, etc... and sometimes it's too late to fix... you die.
While this is true what they say, the way the way they go about explaining this is intended to scare. When watching it you pretty much feel you are going to die if you have hypertension... unless of course you buy BPS-5.
This Video "Might Save Your Life"
Of course you have to watch carefully, the video might save your life. And you have to watch it right now because it could be taken down at any time... typical for these types of promotions.
Right on que... we are told that the medical establishment has known about the root cause of hypertension for years, yet continues to overlook it...
As they tell us, the medical industry doesn't want people to be cured... because they want to continue to suck every penny out of the population.
While I definitely do not trust the medical establishment completely, what I trust even less is scammy promotions like this that take misleading and deceptive approaches to sell their supplements.
I'm also a big fan of natural cures, but the truth is that prescription medications aren't always the bad guys... and while they do often have some pretty bad side effects, they also help a lot of people.
A Near-Death Experience
It seems that most sales pitches start off with some near-death experience... and then the person fully recovers thanks to some magical cure later on.
The story here is that some retired military veteran named Jerry almost died from high BP... but is now completely symptom free thanks to FAI and their natural cure.
But I have no evidence that any of this is true.
The claim is that fructose is the root cause of hypertension. It causes uric acid production which slows nitric oxide production and leads to tightening blood vessels.
There are a bunch of research studies cited and whatnot, but the presentation is misleading.
While research implies that fructose does play a big role in hypertension, how much of a role it plays is still now well known and it certainly isn't the only cause of high BP.
As expected, the information provided is very vague.
Phrases like "this extract", "this compound", "this special formula", etc. are often used.
We know this supplement consists of 5 herbs/spices, but what they are we do not know.
Overall the sales pitch isn't something I care for too much. I would rather watch a shorter video that gets to the point faster and that is more straightforward.
The Company - Can You Trust Them?
The company behind BPS-5 is called FAI, which stands for Functional Aging Institute (website: fai-health.com). The company was founded in 2013 by Dr Dan Ritchie and Dr Cody Sipe (both or whom hold Ph.D's and are personal trainers) with the goal of helping older clients achieve better health naturally.
One of their biggest achievements has been the development of a "senior fitness" certification program composed of knowledge, theory, skill and practical application... which personal trainers can take to add to their credentials.
Dan, the head guy, has helped relieve thousands of hypertension completely naturally, has spoke at large events, helped people in over 16 countries, and has even been featured on the news... among many other things.
Both guys have quite a long list of qualifications and achievements.
While the sales pitch may lead one to believe that these people are a bunch of scammers, they are not in any way and do seem to be the kind of people you can trust.
However, there are some concerns I still have that I will go over shortly.
Well, I hate to leave my readers wanting more, but unfortunately I don't know the ingredients.
In the information provided all they tell us is that it is a "proprietary formula", which is a term that I hate to hear.
Even on the main product page of the fai-health.com website there is no information as you can see here...
A bit concerning to say the least.
*If anyone knows the ingredients please let me know in the comment section so that I can update this review!
Natural ingredients like those said to be contained in this supplement are usually less likely to cause side effects, but that's about all I can say since I don't know the actual ingredients.
Synthetic drugs on the other hand, according to a report in the Journal of Nephropharmacology, are responsible for about 8% of hospital admissions in the US--from side effects of the drugs. That is a heck of a lot.
That said, natural remedies aren't always as safe as you might think.
As it's being promoted right now, you can get BPS-5 and their Healthy Blood Pressure Protocol ebook for $69.
The ebook is basically a bunch of information on how to naturally lower your BP. It discusses why some diets don't work, what does work, some simple tricks you can do daily to lower BP (like breathing techniques for example), and so on.
In the video presentation that I watched I was told that this price is "for today and today only", but this is far from being the truth. This video presentation has already been running for days saying the same thing.
"Rock Solid 365-Day Guarantee"
The claim is that they offer a "rock solid 365-day guarantee" where you can get a full refund if your high BP is not reduced.
They make it sound so simple... just contact their support at email@example.com and you will be able to mail in the opened bottles and get a full refund.
However, I've been reviewing products marketed like this for too long to fall for this kind of statement.
What more than likely will happen is you will somehow have to prove that you followed the protocol exactly as you are supposed to, that you didn't skip any days of taking BPS-5, and you will likely need some blood-work to show before & after results... and maybe more.
There is almost always a way out of money-back guarantees like this when they are incredibly vague... as this one is.
But this is just my two cents on it all... I don't know for sure if it will be difficult to get a refund.
My main concern here is about the ingredients and the lack of transparency about them.
How can they expect us to trust them and to buy this product if we don't even know what's in it?
The marketing tactics are also a bit concerning... The company itself and the founders seem to be stand-up guys who you can trust, but then the misleading marketing tactics make you question their integrity.
Pros v Cons
- Created by professionals in the industry
- Good company behind it
- Natural ingredients, no harsh chemicals
- 365 day money-back guarantee
- No list of ingredients
- Questionable trustworthiness
Is BPS-5 a Scam?
While there are definitely some things I don't like about how this supplement is marketed and some concerns I have, I certainly don't have any reason to call it a scam.
I also would highly doubt that a company with a good reputation like FAI would be willing to damage their image selling a scam product.
Conclusion - Worth a Try or Not?
I wish I could have been more thorough in this review but unfortunately there is limited information for me to go off of.
Is this worth a try? Well, it seems that it could be, but there are too many unknowns for me to recommend it to my readers.
That said, if you want you can purchase BPS-5 on the official website here.
I hope that you found this review helpful. Please leave any comments or questions below and I will get back to you soon 🙂
