Below are my top five natural ways to lower blood pressure,
and by the way, it’ll happen fast! Some plans can take months to see results.
With my tips, some of which revolve around anti-inflammatory foods, you can
see results in just one day.
1. Switch to a Mediterranean-style diet
Thanks to foods such as olives and flax seeds, Mediterranean diets
are very high in fruits, vegetables, sea foods and healthy omega-3 rich fat
oils. A grain-free or a low-grain Mediterranean diet, naturally abundant with
foods, is ideal.
Some of the top foods you want in your
Mediterranean diet are olive oil, flax seeds, wild-caught fish (especially salmon) and
a lot of fruits and vegetables, all of which will help lower your blood
2. Start taking a fish oil supplement
One of the main causes of high blood pressure is
inflammation in the arteries over time. Study after study have shown consuming fish oil, which is high in EPA and
DHA forms of omega-3 fatty acids, reduces inflammation
of the body. So, taking a high quality, 1,000 milligram fish oil dose
every single day with your meals is one of the best natural ways to lower
3. Use magnesium to loosen things up
The mineral magnesium is great because it helps
relax your blood vessels and can have an immediate impact on naturally lowering
blood pressure (and many people have a magnesium deficiency). So should
you take magnesium supplements?
Yes, and 500 milligrams daily is a great dose to start with to address
your blood pressure issues.
4. Pump up your potassium
An essential element, potassium — and
high-potassium foods such as avocado and melon — help counteract the effect of
sodium and guard against hypertension. Some of the best potassium-rich foods include
coconut water and bananas.
Coconut water is a great choice if you want
something a little bit sweet to drink through the day. Another delicious way to
overcome potentially low potassium
levels and naturally lower your blood pressure is to use coconut water as
the liquid base for your superfood smoothie in
5. Maintain balance with CoQ10
Coenzyme Q10, more commonly known as CoQ10, is an antioxidant critical
for supporting heart health and crucial if you’ve ever been on blood pressure
or, in particular, cholesterol-lowering medication. Two-to-three hundred
milligrams of Coenzyme Q10 per day is a great, natural remedy for high blood pressure.
Even though these are natural ways to counteract hypertension, you should consult with
someone first. Call us at
