How to Lower Your Blood Pressure Naturally

Share

One in three Americans have high blood pressure i.e., hypertension – or over 140/90 measuring pressure. The most regular form of high blood pressure is “idiopathic” or “essential” hypertension, which means that the reason is “unknown”.

But what can be done to lower your blood pressure quickly? Well, listed below are some of the quickest methods which are either proven medically or have benefited thousands of individuals.

Garlic

Ever since the ancient Greek culture, Garlic is believed as a medicinal food. Garlic is one of the major source of antioxidants which control as well as break up plaque inside your blood vessels. It is also a natural diuretic.

If you are serious enough to lower your blood pressure and would like to enjoy all the health benefits of garlic, then it is necessary that you eat it raw. The major reason for this is that cooking demolishes the properties of allicin.

The ultimate way to consume raw garlic is to make a “garlic shot” by putting freshly minced garlic in some water and quickly swallow. It’s not the best tasting…but it works. For a more convenient way to consume raw garlic, you can look for capsules which include crushed, raw garlic which is in the powder form. So there is no need for you to worry about garlic breath after you consume these tablets.

Hydrate

It is possible for Americans to finish up the cases of cola and pots containing coffee, but very few among them actually intake enough water in order to keep themselves healthy. Water eliminates sodium and also helps in minimizing hardening of blood vessels. So how much water should you regularly consume? To keep your body sufficiently hydrated, you should drink half the weight of your body, expressed in ounces, daily. For instance, if your weight is 140 pounds, you should consume 70 ounces of water regularly.

Apple Cider Vinegar

There are hardly any studies which prove that Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has any effect on minimizing blood pressure. However, thousands claim to have gotten wonderful results utilizing it. It is common to see a reduction of 20 points or even more in under 2 weeks! The typical dose includes a tablespoon mixed along with eight ounces of water.

Aerobics Exercise

One of the quickest ways to lower your blood pressure is by beginning mild aerobic workout for at-least thirty minutes on a regular basis. 30 minutes of cycling or brisk walking will strengthen the muscles in your heart as well as drop your blood pressure by at-least 4 points. It will also provide extra elasticity to your blood vessels.

Cut Out Restaurant and Fast Food Meals

The eating habit of an average american contains 2 daily meals from a restaurant. Apart from the huge proportion of fats which the Americans consume, restaurants are crazy with salt too. Lowering those meals will considerably lower the level of fat and sodium which you intake.

Not only can you manage your high blood pressure, but you can also completely cure your it.
