clinical trials for your heart healthy product

Over 77% of Americans consume natural supplements, with heart health being one of the top goals. Clinical trials help you stand out and build consumer trust.  

Heart health nutraceutical consumers are willing to invest in products that can deliver on their claims. The largest deciding factor when a consumer chooses a brand is clinical evidence. Standing out in this market requires clinical trials to produce the scientific proof these consumers require. 

Natural product heart health studies often span multiple years or even decades, requiring thousands of participants. These trials are expensive and impractical for most natural products. But heart health trials don't have to be multi-year and multi-million dollar endeavors. 

Cutting-edge, intelligent research designs can achieve the same goal for a fraction of the price in less than a year. Our expert scientists at Franklin Health create customized RCT protocols capable of demonstrating your products most powerful effects. This forward-thinking approach to clinical research provides you better results that are faster and more affordable.

When it comes to clinical trial outcomes, size really does matter. Clinicians and regulatory authorities alike want to see not only that you reached statistical significance, but that your product delivers an effect large enough to provide noticeable improvements. The effect size matters. 

The effect size captures the magnitude of your product's cardiovascular activity, telling consumers and clinicians just how well your product supports heart health. 

When our team of research experts creates your trial, we focus on capturing the largest effect size your product can deliver. 

Our researcher team includes experienced integrative health professionals, so we are intimately familiar with the relationship between nutraceuticals and heart health. This expertise allows us to accurately identify how to display your product's greatest strengths. We hand-select the study population, choosing people most likely to experience documented boosts in cardiovascular health from your formulation's specific mechanisms of actions. And we develop intervention protocols customized for your most powerful ingredients, enabling them to show off their biggest effects. 


Our expert approach cuts the risk of false negatives in half 

When it comes to heart health clinical trials, risk reduction is the name of the game. After all, the greatest threat to your research investment is a negative outcome.

Most negative outcomes in natural product research are due to common mistakes in protocol development. For example, most clinical trial designs accept a 20% chance of producing a false negative and use simplistic statistical analysis plans that are incapable of capturing complex yet positive results. 

Our research methods experts cut those risks in half, designing high powered studies with advanced statistical analysis plans. While no ethical clinical research organization can guarantee success, this approach dramatically minimizes the chances of a negative outcome due to trial design.

study the outcomes that matter 

Consumers of heart health supplements typically have specific end goals in mind. They are worried about the effects aging may have on their blood pressure or cholesterol and want to give their cardiovascular system as much support as they can. 

The right clinical trial creates consumer trust, giving them confidence that your product actually boosts brain health. Many clinical trials, however, focus on outcomes that don't matter to your customers, or fail to capture real world effects that translate to consumer benefits.

Our cardiovascular health studies include a myriad of key outcomes, ensuring that you not only substantiate your product claims, but also that you are able to quantify just how much your product boosts heart and vascular health. Some of the most common outcome measures we evaluate include EKG, heart rate, blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglycerides. 

Many clinical trials have bloated infrastructure, requiring participants to come on site and have their heart rate and blood pressure checked in-person. Not only does this add unnecessarily to your study's cost, it delivers less-than-accurate results. Studies repeatedly show that the stress and hassle of on-site visits increase heart rate and blood pressure. Errors in these critical measures can result in trial failure.  

Instead of time-consuming and budget-heavy on-site visits, we take advantage of modern technology to capture ongoing cardiovascular outcomes through smart watches or other wearable medical technology. Not only does this provide real-world results, it also provides multiple measures, ensuring accuracy. 

In other words, we accurately capture your product's effects in real world settings–just like how your consumers will self-evaluate these benefits. We produce solid evidence that your product maintains healthy cholesterol levels, supports healthy blood pressure, and protects disruptions to heart rate. This allows you to make claims related to the real world benefits that your customers need most.

By focusing on trial design and quality, we cut the average time required for a heart health trial from over 2 years to less than 1 year, thanks to modern streamlined processes developed specifically for natural product research.

At the start of your heart health trial, our expert team of natural health professionals and research scientists create a custom protocol based on your product's unique features. This is the most important phase of the trial. After regulatory authorizations which take 1-2 weeks, our team recruits and trains a highly specific group of participants from our extensive database.  

Next, participants begin providing informed consent and start taking your product. Most heart health supplements need to be taken for 4-6 months to demonstrate impressive effects. During this time our team collects data and runs frequent quality control checks. These data are then analyzed with findings presented to you in multiple formats. From contract execution to manuscript delivery, heart health clinical trials take an average of 10-12 months total. 

Eliminating inefficiencies in the process means eliminating associated costs as well, making trials more affordable. Logical and intelligent clinical trial design not only boosts quality, it reduces overall cost, helping your research budget go even farther. 

unlock heart health claims  

Conducting a clinical trial on your cardiovascular supporting supplement delivers a substantial return on investment. With a published clinical trial, you can obtain scientific substantiation about your product's effects, allowing you to legally and ethically make claims that your product is clinically proven to support healthy cholesterol levels, maintain blood pressure, and improve overall heart health.  

Obtaining documented evidence of your product's effects translates to increased consumer confidence in your product's efficacy. Scientific substantiation is also important to have on hand should the FDA or FTC come knocking; the best protection from regulatory issues surrounding your product's claims is to have high quality clinical trials specific to your product and your target market.

With Franklin Health's clinical trials expertise you can unlock new claims and gain consumer confidence, setting your product apart from the competition.
